Travel Widgets for Planning a Trip or Just Dreaming

April 16th, 2009 No comments

Down in the dumps, bored, laid off, need a break or just want to dream?

Here are some widgets from Tripbase.com to get you started.

Each of the widgets does something different.

  • Travel Weather and Season Predictor: Enter a destination, month and get the weather prediction with information about the travel season.
  • Travel Cost Calculator: Enter a destination and it spits out the “estimated” daily cost. You can specify Budget, Mid range or Luxury and your choice of 3 currencies.
  • Travel Picture of the Day: Auto updates daily with a new vacation picture to distract you from what you’re suppose to be doing.
