Say what you want about Twitter, but it really can be a great resource -- especially for those who travel often (or often dream of travel). The Twittersphere is teeming with travel junkies sharing tips, tricks, and treats -- from helpful packing lists to funny on-the-road tales. So we sorted through our massive rolodex and found six travel Twitter accounts that you're probably not following, but should be. And fear not -- we've got one for every style, so no matter your travel tendencies, there's an account that will speak, er, tweet to you.


1. If you need a laugh: @LunaticAtLarge


Kristin Luna’s twitter account reminds you that even super-cool travel and food writers who circle the globe visiting amazing countries and attending fabulous industry events aren’t immune to travel woes; at least she can laugh about it — and let’s you laugh about it, too! Luna does also tweet drool-worthy pics of her foodie adventures and celebrity meetings.

2. If you dig vids: @JacobTomsky


New York Times best-selling author of “Heads in Beds,” Tomsky is a former hotel employee whose book detailed crazy insider stories — as well as helpful insider tips. But his Twitter feed consists largely of video vignettes from his travels. Most recently, he took an interesting trip to Disneyland in Hong Kong.
