I am an excellent armchair traveler. When I need to get my travel on but I can't exactly leave the country in a moment's notice, I go to travelblogs.org, where you can find all kinds of blogs from regular people who have traveled around and documented it all on this site. You can search for nearly any country or city and find it here. The photos are often quite impressive.
Another cool travel site is couchsurfing.com where you can sign up and find people in cities all over the world who will host you in their home towns. You sign up for whatever level of "hosting" you can manage... everything from offering up your couch for a night, to just meeting up with someone for coffee and showing them around your city. It's a very cool project.
