My recommendations, travel or otherwise
Everything on this page are services or sites I actually use and recommend. I’ll add to it continually over time.
DIY Tel Aviv Guide
http://www.diytelavivguide.com/blog/ – You may have already seen my recommendation for the Do it Yourself Tel Aviv travel guide on my own guide of Alternative Things to do in TLV, but I don’t care. This is the best source of information about the incredibly hip and always exciting Mediterranean city. Updates almost every day to the blog with the most recent happenings, as well as a downloadable guide.
52×52.org – give to charity every week
http://52×52.org/ – Give to charity every week for one year. This site from a popular graphic designer was set up to motivate people to donate to charities each week for one year. I’m participating since its launch in November 2011. It’s a great way to discover new nonprofits, though sometimes I don’t take the recommendation and instead donate to one of my other favorite charities.
Change.org – clicktivism
http://www.change.org/ – Social activism online. These are some of the only e-mails I regularly read. NYTimes had a great write-up about the website recently. Read Nick Kristof’s column about change.org.
überlin.eu – everything you wanted to know about berlin
http://uberlin.eu/ – James and Zoe’s site about living in Berlin is probably the coolest, most interesting site you’ll find about this fascinating city. Their photographs are amazing and the way they have with words is truly captivating. Read them!
8tracks radio/music website
http://8tracks.com/ – Hand-picked playlists by real people. There are some absolute great mixes on there and it’s one of my favorite ways to discover new music. View my profile and see what I’m listening to here: http://8tracks.com/travelsofadam
On The Go Tours
http://www.onthegotours.com/ As a blogger, I won a free trip to Jordan with On The Go. My trip turned out to be awesome and this is a small-tour operator that I’d definitely use again and recommend to friends. In fact, several of the people I met on my trip were on their second or even third On The Go tour!
