The Bathroom Diaries

Move over Nanny Diaries and make room for the Bathroom Diaries. Even if everyone "went" before leaving the house, inevitably someone will have to "go" while you're out. You probably know of a few bathroom spots in your town or neighborhood that are public and clean (i.e. Barnes & Noble), but what about when you're traveling?

The Bathroom Diaries website has been around since 2000 and is the world's largest (only?) bathroom database with 12,000 reader-submitted reviews of loos around the globe. They cover over 120 countries so you should be able to find a decent bathroom whether you're in Aruba or Arkansas. Bathrooms are rated on cleanliness, safety, availability of a changing table, wheelchair access and more.

If you belong to Vindigo, you can access the Bathroom Diaries through your cell phone. If not, you might want to print out reviews in advance for the places you're visiting.

Seen an exceptional bathroom in your travels? Nominate it for a Golden Plunger award. Below is one winner: the Shoji Tabuchi Theatre in Branson, Missouri.
