Weekend Reading – Best Travel Blogs This Week (25-30 April)
Well today we finally have FREEDOM in the form of TWO laptops – it’s been about 12 months since my last laptop broke (somewhere in the Cook Islands) and since then we have been sharing Sofia’s cute lil’ 10 inch pink one – what a test it was sometimes, but now we finally bought another (just for me) so we can spend more quality time building this site into what we really want and more importantly more quality time with each other away from doing 2 hour daily laptop shifts – which was not fun!
Here are my personal Fav’s from this week in travel blog world:
7 Tips For Mainintaing Your Travel Blog On The Road - (Backpacking Matt) I just found Matt’s blog, and am enjoying following his trip around New Zealand. In this blog he shares 7 great tips for how you can make sure you KEEP blogging even while you are traveling (from experience, getting into this blogging routine is damn hard – but once you figure out a plan of attack while on the road – it becomes easy.)
Eventually, Everyone Stops Traveling – (Almost Fearless) Christine gives us the question *is the romance of the round-the-world trip actually burning people out on travel?* and goes in-depth into reasons why some people feel a need to *retire* from the travel lifestyle and decided to settle down again – what would you do? do you think you can travel for the rest of your life? or is this a fling for you, something which you know will come to a end? check out her blog and leave a comment.
3 Free Language Social Networks Travelers Can Use To Learn And Converse With Others – (Fox Nomad) Do you want to learn how to speak another language? Anil shares 3 websites where you can sign up, meet and practice with others online. Also he shares a bunch of other links to help you speed up your language learning – great resources!
If you can’t stick to your plans…. Don’t plan anything – (No Place To Be) Poi & Kirsty are in the process of planning their RTW trip but find themselves always changing their plans – they question – *surely a journey with no limitations is the best way to go?* – check out their blog, cos it sounds like they will be having a bunch of adventures very soon!
Things I Can’t Stand When Traveling – (A Pair Of Panties & Boxers) Monica shares with us a list of things she can’t stand while traveling, and also posed the question to her twitter friends – check out the blog to see their replies and to also leave your own. (one example: People who make travel a pissing contest over whose got more traveler cred. ugh. – can you guess who that was?)
Well… there you go, hope you enjoy reading those as much as I did, make sure you have a great weekend and we will see you all here again on Monday!
