Tourist information.

bullet

Y! Travel.  This is a tremendous resource.  Contains guides to the world's major travel destinations, along with links to hotels and other web-based travel resources.  I have used it many times to establish itineraries for my own travels.

bullet

US Department of State.  It is always good to research travel information about your destination, even if it is a supposedly 'safe' place.  A wise traveler carries along the phone numbers of the nearest consulate and is aware of the potential hazards.

bullet

Deutsche Bahn (in English).  This site allows you to look up travel itineraries by train within Germany, and to a lesser extent throughout Europe.  Lets you reserve seats on-line at the mere cost of $2.25 US per seat (for certain trains).  Getting around by train in Germany is super easy and not terribly expensive (cheaper than gas, wear and tear on the car, and parking).

bullet

Hotel chains.  Most budget hotels let you reserve rooms on-line, and the chains listed here are great if you are traveling on a budget.

bullet

Accor hotels.  The Accor family of hotel chains is worldwide.  For European travel, I tend to use the Ibis chain.  It's cheap but I never spend any time in a hotel room anyway.

bullet

Best Western hotels.  In locations that Accor does not service, I've used this chain.

bullet

Mapping sites.

bullet

Expedia.  I use Expedia to pull up European maps.  Excellent detail.  Unfortunately, I've yet to find a free service on line anywhere that does as well for Asia.

bullet

Travel and leisure sites.

bullet

Stars and Stripes Travel.  Weekly travel section of the US military's daily newspaper, published overseas in both Europe and the Pacific.  Great reference site for festivals and places to go around the world.

bullet

Military Living PublicationsWhere the MILITARY FUN begins!  Commercial site that sells useful leisure and travel publications.  Primary audience is US military, but many of their products are useful for any American living overseas.  Their "R&R Travel News" service is very good.

bullet

European River Cities.  Site with a number of good links regarding several popular cities in Europe.

bullet

Languages.

bullet

TravLang -- Foreign Languages for Travelers.  This is a good website if you want to carry with you a cue card with basic phrases.
