With the global economy headed down a murky-looking road, it's unlikely that travel is on the top of a lot of people's lists this year when it comes to spending cash. But if you're among the fortunate who can swing a trip, The Independent published an article last year called the The Complete Guide to Retro Travel. It's a compilation of vacation ideas and places to see and do that remind you of another era. For example, you can embark on a vintage tour of Paris, rent a 1970s VW Bus for a drive around the Isle of Wight in the UK, or get your retro kicks on Route 66 in the States. For more inspiration, check out the article here.
