    Everybody loves to travel and explore places that they have never been to before and before booking their trip people like to try and find out as much information about a place that they can.
    Who knows more about a destination than the people who actually live there,?
    That is where the challenge comes in.
    Travel The World On A Hub
    The challenge involves writing Hubs about where you live or about places that you have been to and know really well and the secret places that tourists wouldn't normally get to see simply because they have never heard of them. you could review your local eateries, hotels and aminities such as swimming pools, museums, hidden wonders or local festivals that take place.
    If you are interested in taking part join us on the Facebook page set up for this challenge where you can share those links to your travel Hubs and find more information about the challenge.
    Just type into facebook search hubber challenge and you will find us, the more the merrier.....jimmy

      Can you include old hubs or is it for only new hubs? Sadly where I live now isn't particularly interesting big_smile

        Hi Simey, If you have some old Hubs related to travel I don't see why they couldn't be included after all they are all pertaining to travel and places in the Hub Categories.....jimmy

          Cool - I'll check it out later. Might be a good time to revisit these hubs and update them anyway!

    Something similar was done a few years ago.  Did you participate with the Hub Trails hubs?  Marisa Wright made a separate website for posting links to our travel/destination hubs, then she turned it over to someone else.  I think I even have the Hub Trails logo on some of my travel hubs. 
    I think it's a great idea to write about the areas we know best.  A few of my travel hubs are linked on Frommer's website.  I was just getting ready to update my Florida hubs since vacation time is near.

    This was one of the images we placed on our hubs.

    Thanks for letting us know about it, jtj.

      Hi rebekahELLE, thanks for showing interest maybe if we get enough people to participate we could in reality travel the world from Hub to Hub could be an interesting challenge.....jimmy

        For that challenge, there were actually THREE websites set up, each providing links to the Hubs.   HubPages joined in with a map on which every Hub was pinned. 

        The Hubs in Hubtrails were very good quality.  Sadly it never really did as well as I expected, and when Google started penalizing websites which were "just a list of links", I decided there was no point in paying to renew the domain name.

          It did have very good hubs which I'm sure many of them are still here.  A lot of time and effort was put into those hubs, and I know it must have required more time than you expected keeping the site up.

      HubTrails has been utterly defunct for a long time, and I found my travel Hubs got better performance when I went back over my Hubs and deleted all the tags and links related to that project.

        Hi Relache, I missed out on Hub trails because of work commitments and wish I had taken part at the time.
        There are a lot of new writers here on Hubpages who also missed out and can have the chance to participate now.
        Hubpages have made improvements to the standard of Hubs since Hub Trails and hopefully that will be reflected in this new challenge.
        Tagging has been taken out of our hands and if the writers stick to the rules there will only be one link in each Hub to another Hub in the series.
        Thank you Relache for your response, I hope that you will join in.....jimmy

        I just noticed this post.  That's interesting.  I think I removed most of the links, but I'll have to double check my hubs that had those links/logos.

    I have been gathering my research after I posted on your Facebook TimeLine Jimmy! I am getting ready! I was a bit disappointed this morning though, HP made me delete direct quotes by two politicians on Earth Day because it had been used somewhere else!  Duh! Of course it has been used somewhere else. Everyone concerned about the planet plan to hold them to their word.  Simone needs to improve on that rule. Direct quotes should be allowed to be used more than once.  Oh, Well....

    Off to start writing my Michigan Travel Hubs!
