Top O-Travel Picks: July 2010

Not made your holiday plans yet? See the full list of top multiday-races with map samples – use Google Wave to add your recommendations – and see my own personal top picks. For most events it is still not too late to register, although registration prices have increased for some events already.

In the Top O-Travel Picks-series of articles we will take a look at the most interesting events of 2010 for travelers – month by month – to guide you through the fixture list. Focus is on multiday-events and World Ranking events, as these are events which typically attract traveling orienteers.

Map samples

A map says more than 1000 words – at least for an orienteer. Here you see map samples for July 2010 events uploaded by the organizers.

Personal Picks

Choosing just a few events out of all the great events in July 2010 is no easy task. Instead of just picking a few events, I picked out the events I would have liked to travel to (quite a few), and stated my very personal reasons for why I would have liked to travel there. As an experiment, I embedded my personal picks in a Google Wave, where anyone with a Google Wave account can add comments (thus what you see below might not be my original text anymore).
