For those of you who are paying attention, we’re switching it up. A more robust Radar — the best of the travel blogosphere (don’t you hate that word?) — will now be a regular feature on Intelligent Travel every Wednesday.
You can play, too. Simply follow us on Twitter @NatGeoTraveler and tag your favorite travel stories from the web #ngtradar to help us find the crème de la crème. Here’s this week’s:
