See more of Time’s Pictures of the Week and visit Boston.com’s The Big Picture too. TBP has the most stunning images each and every time I visit, I’m never disappointed. Check out Worker resting on bales of cotton by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, one of my favourites in the set from his Earth from Above series.

Confession: I never go anywhere. Well, I do leave Toronto now and then, but as far as vacations? Never. Happens. Enter a former business colleague who has decided to get married in Mexico! Huzzah!  It’s a good excuse to finally put aside the ‘too busy’ and ‘too costly’ excuses and just GO.

The wedding is in February ’09, so there’s plenty of time to plan – and do I love to plan! (It’s somewhat of an obsession, no joke…)

Enter PlanetEye. One of Toronto’s most well known tech folks, Mark Evans, is part of the great team behind the site. PlanetEye.com is a one-stop destination for all the travel planning needs I (or you!) might have.

PlanetEye is still in beta but it’s already shaping up to be a fantastically easy-to-use planning tool with geotagged photography, some very cool mapping technology and a growing cache of travel content from a team of in-house writers and professional sources. Snazzy!

PlanetEye has a neat “Travel Pack”  feature that lets you “clip” the interesting photographs, attractions, hotels and restaurants discovered on PlanetEye when planning a trip or simply putting together travel ideas.

Congrats to Mark and the team on the launch of PlanetEye – if all goes well I’ll be off to Mexico in February for my very well planned trip!
