Weather.com’s Travel Inspiring Content?

By  | 

In the last few months, Weather.com has had several interesting travel-related posts. I don’t really think of them as a content site, I mostly just want to know if it’s going to rain, snow, or boil at my destination, but they’ve come up with some fun stuff.

The most recent is “10 of the World’s Weirdest Hotels.” (h/t: Kathy)

One or two were places I’d already intended to go, such as the Hotel Marques de Riscal in Spain designed by Frank Gehry, others have been added to my list, including the Spitbank Sea Fort Hotel off the coast of Portsmouth, England.

But a couple are downright disturbing, most of all the Panda Hotel in China. I think it was the employee in the panda costume that really did me in…

Earlier this summer they covered Nine Exotic Fruits You’ve Never Heard of. I momentarily felt very worldly and experienced when the first two were fruits I was familiar with from my Asia travels — the dragon fruit and the carambola. Of course that quickly subsided when most of the others were completely unknown to me…Guess I need to step up my South America travel!
