Every week on Tripologist, I like to share some of my favorite travel related posts from around the web.

If you have a post that you think is especially great and would like to be included in a future edition, put a comment below, send me a link through the Contact page, or message @TheTripologist on Twitter. Here are my favorite travel posts from this past week:

The Lost City –

If you think Angkor Wat is cool, wait until you read about the lost city that was just uncovered in the mountains of Cambodia. Predating the temples of Angkor by 350 years, the city was so well hidden that a village existed in the middle of it, but local residents had no idea the ruins were there.

How to Capture the Travel Photos You Really Want –

Have you ever gone on vacation but been disappointed with your pictures when you got home? I know I have. In this post on, Ed Graham gives some great pointers on how to take the travel photos you’ve always wanted to.

Touring Toronto’s Steam Whistle Brewery –

One thing I try and do when I visit a new country is sample several of the local brews. And, during my time in Canada, I found myself really enjoying the beer from Steam Whistle Brewery. Unfortunately, despite spending a lot of time in the convention center, I wasn’t able to make it across the street to the Steam Whistle Brewery for a tour. If you’re looking for things to do in Toronto, I highly recommend checking out this post from the great people at The Constant Rambler.

How I Got Fired From the Job I Invented –

How would you feel if the website and persona you had work on for 2 years was stolen by a large multi-national corporation? Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened to Turner of Around the World in 80 Jobs. Take a minute to read his story, then show your support by letting the offending company, Adecco, know that you stand behind Turner.

And From the Tripologist Archives: Touring Mongolia with Golden Gobi: The Good and the Bad

Last year, I was able to visit Mongolia, crossing off one of the things near the top of my bucket list. While the country was beautiful, and I had a great time exploring it, I had mixed feelings about my tour with Golden Gobi. If you’re planning a trip to Mongolia, make sure to take a few minutes to read my review.
