Weekend Reading – Best Travel Blogs This Week (18-23 April)

Weekend Reading – Best Travel Blogs This Week (18-23 April)

Hey guys, today it’s gonna be just a quick blog as right now I am on the bus traveling to Copenhagen for 3 days of work with another company I run.

I hope the Volcano in Iceland didn’t disturb your travel plans too much this week, and that you have had some time to relax and maybe realise how much we seem to have become reliant on flying for our daily lives… its crazy how much chaos such a simple natural thing can cause!

This week we have some awesome blogs – check them out below… also we find it HARD to read and see every new travel-related blog post so if you think you have posted an interesting, fun, informative post which you would like us to consider for this weekly feature – then please leave it in the comments below or send us a link via email!

Antarctica, Part 4: An Audio Slideshow – (Uncornered Market) oh I love this – Audrey and Daniel not only share with you a slide show with heaps of great pictures from their adventure to Antarctica, but they also guide you through each picture via AUDIO, describing everything in such detail – great photos and interesting commentary – thanks for sharing!

*Can’t* And Travel Don’t Go Together – (Suzy Guese) Suzy gets down and honest about how some people find going on a trip easier than others and she comes to the conclusion that to quote ‘… travel is all about stepping outside of your known to the unknown. If it’s not then it isn’t travel…’ I 100% agree, and know so many people who WISH and dream about going traveling,  but they always have a list of CANT’S holding them back. Let go of the can’ts and LET YOURSELF travel – then it becomes easy, and the world opens up for you.

India: Day 2 (Part 1) – (My Beautiful Adventures) Andi has just gotten back from a quick trip to India, this place has been a dream of hers for such a long time – check out her blog, follow her adventure and enjoy many amazing pictures – I am sooo jealous! :)

Why Do You Travel? – (The Aussie Nomad) Chris is just about to leave for his RTW trip (today?) and ponders the question WHY do you travel? He has been posting many prep. blogs about his up-coming trip, but I really can’t wait until he is in Europe and starts exploring on a daily basis – he is going to have such a awesome time and this blog post shares with us more insights into WHY he decided to quit everything in Australia and leave to Europe – great stuff!

HOW TO GET AROUND OZ CHEAPLY – (Nomadic Matt) Australia is an expensive place to visit, let alone travel around, and many people will only spend a few months there going up and down the east coast, simply because to expand into the outskirts just seems too hard and expensive. Matthew breaks it down for you and gives you every option out there to make the most out of your trip. Before you get to OZ make sure you check out this blog post!

Extra: I know this blog post shouldn’t be included because it was posted last week, but I just found this guys blog a few days ago, and really enjoyed reading about his adventures – check it out and see what you think:  Cheap Travel: Bangladesh – Johnny @ oneStep4ward.com

Have a great weekend, well I am off to work work work! oh well at least its a fun job! :)

    Thanks for including our audio slideshow on your list of recommended posts! Our trip to Antarctica was really incredible, so I hope a bit of that came out in the medium!
