France Travel Blogs and Forums

You won't find the first-person sights, smells, sounds, and emotions of a place in most guidebooks. Whether they describe a vomit-inducing meal or tantalizing stretch of beach, other travelers' accounts are windows into destinations. Try reading a newspaper's travel section online (The New York Times, Washington Post, South Florida Sun Sentinel, and San Francisco Chronicle all have good ones) for archived destination pieces. Blogs and travel narratives delve even deeper.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • User experiences can be highly subjective, so be sure to consult a variety of sources and opinions and don't judge a place too quickly.
  • Travel forums are helpful if you want direct feedback and personalized advice from other travelers. Use your discretion before you take someone's advice, however; read their previous posts and try to gain a better sense of their opinions and travel style.
  • In the sidebars of most blogs you'll usually find blogrolls, which are lists of links to other blogs. If you like a blog, it might be worthwhile to check out its blogroll for other similarly veined sites.
  • Another way to find useful travel blogs is to use a blog-specific search engine such as Technorati or BlogPulse.
  • See our findingDulcinea Blog Guide for more advice and information about how to find and use blogs (and even write your own).
