All good travel starts with an idea. And what’s a more comfortable way to gather those ideas than armchair traveling with In The Know Traveler?

To get your adventures started, let In The Know Traveler and a list put together by the United Nations help. While the UN is an organization that you don’t usually associate with travel recommendations, each year they rank their 175 member countries on living standards such as real income, health, and education. Why not set your travel sights on places where the livin’ is easy? In this year’s list Iceland took the top honors, with France rounding out the top ten:

1. Iceland
2. Norway
3. Australia
4. Canada
5. Ireland
6. Sweden
7. Switzerland
8. Japan
9. Netherlands
10. France

Here at In The Know Traveler you’ll find the pages filled with great ideas about some of these places, and many other destinations too. So use that armchair wisely and let us help you develop those ideas into your travel resolution for 2008.
