Travel & Technology Roundup - Week 22, 2009

Here's my round up of this week's cool articles in the travel, internet and gadget space:

I love spring. The plants and trees come to life, the birds are chirpy and in the mood, bees are buzzing. Go ahead, accuse me of being a typical Englishman, but I like gardens. Here are 10 places to see May flowers for free thanks to Gadling (although this list is pretty US centric).

Also from Gadling, their guide to summer music.

If you don't know Weburbanist, you should. Their strap is 'urban design, culture, travel, architecture and alternative art.' Says it all doesn't it? Great website, and here's a great article: Unbuilt Buildings: 12 Awesome Future Architectural Designs. Doesn't the Dragonfly metabolic farm look like one of those mint film things you put in your mouth, but much much larger?

The latest from

New articles by Cathy Winston added to our Istanbul Guide. A great Istanbul restaurant as well as a brilliant short break guide to Istanbul.

More Isle of Wight material as well. Isle of Wight hotels, art gallery Dimbola Lodge, and chocolate shop Chocolate Island.

That's all for this week. Peace everyone.
