*8Things: Highly Handy Websites

8things from Magpie Girl

This week for *8Things I’ve been thinking about the go-to websites that I keep at the top of my favorites. List. These aren’t blogs, mind you. Rather, a list of non-blog websites that really help a person out. I’ll show you mine if you show me yours…

*8Things: Highly Handy Websites

1. Bing Translate– an expat’s best friends. Good for translating hotel vacancy inquires too! Better than Google’s.
2. PhotoJoj0 — cheers me up with their twice-a-month time capsule.
3. Gluten Free Baking – terrible design but lots of good recipes.
4. Epicurious – I prop the laptop up in the kitchen out of the spill zone and cook with site.
5. Rejseplanen – Copenhagen’s excellent public transport trip planner. All cities should be so lucky.
6. Ravelry – search for free knitting patterns based on what kind of yarn you have.
7. Hulu– TV on demand. Gets me through the days I have to do book keeping. Also, laundry.
8. Digital Photography School and Pioneer Woman– teaching me how to use that fancy schmancy camera.
8.5 (I get one extra b/c one of those was in Danish) Free Will Astrology – cheeky and insightful. I love it!

I am a huge fan of DPS and get all their mailings. I too have to figure out the fancy-schmancy camera. Have a lovely weekend :)

I lived in Copenhagen for a year and I don’t think I would’ve been able to go anywhere without Rejseplanen! I wish they had a world-wide version.
