Here are some other sites that I have found very helpful for traveling:
1. Matador Abroad – They have lots of helpful posts and members who can answer all of you traveling questions.
2. Best of British – A site by an Englishman who describes all kinds of slang used in the UK. Rather silly, but very informative.
