  • Students studying abroad typically choose big cities: London, Paris, or Rome. But rich cultural experiences and true language immersion are best obtained outside large metropolises. Here are seven small towns perfect for study abroad. [BootsnAll]
  • The latest attraction in Istanbul is a chilly one. The Magic Ice Museum details the voyage of the Vikings to Istanbul in 880 through exhibits etched in and sculpted from ice. [Europe A La Carte]
  • Wi-Fi is making its way up the flyer priorities list. A new study shows that one in five travelers using Go Go’s in-flight Wi-Fi have switched their preferred airline to get flights equipped with the service. Furthermore, 40 percent of leisure travelers who switched their airline to use Go Go’s in-flight Wi-Fi said they wouldn’t travel without it the next time. [GoGo]
