Gadling: I was looking for a site that didn’t try to sell me something, but that would provide a concise and quick refernce to lots of places around the world. I think i found it.
Traveladventures.org offers personal “travel impressions” from over 100 countries. ”Around the World in 80 Clicks” is how the site bills itself. It is quite chock full of country information with short descriptive articles and loads of pictures of places from Dubai to Denmark. There’s quite a lot here and it’s nicely organized. A good place to nose around if you’ve got a trip coming up.
