A North African Odyssey has been on the agenda for many a month now, and I’m delighted to announce that the wheels are in motion and the subject matter of my current dream is soon to become a reality. Yep, I’m off to Morocco. Read more
Just recently, Richard, from A Month in Venice, wrote a post detailing a few of his favourite Travel Blogs. He also invited other bloggers to add to this list with their own favourites from the travesphere.
Being indecisive, I couldn’t narrow it down to just one addition so I just had to say what the hell and add a couple from my rather long list of regular reads. Go on, say it – I just don’t care, do I?
My first addition is leaveamerica.info – Worldwide Travel on a Budget, run by the very amiable Nia. Now, I find this particular travel blog appealing as, although it has the dependable theme of travel on the cheap, you never really know what you are going to get next. It’s random. And I like random.
And my second addition? Well, it has to be Stacey’s Rambling Traveler. If you haven’t seen or read it yet, I thoroughly recommend paying a visit to the rambler and enjoy all that is on offer.
As always, I enjoy discovering new travel blogs. One great method of uncovering new reads is by following recommends and learning of other readers favourites. So, if you run a blog and would like to join the party by sharing your favourite travel blogs then why not knock up a similar post, add your favourites to the list, and post it encouraging others to do the same? Not only can we all benefit from a modicum of link love from sharing the one list and the blogs therein, but, more importantly, with so many travel blogs and travel bloggers out there the chances of highlighting some previously unheard of blogs are high.
If you want to share your favourites, all you need do is write a quick blurb on your recommended reads, add them to this list, and then put the new list below like this.

Groovy. Now let’s see what else we can come up with!
With the internet running head on into its Web 2.0 phase, we’re seeing social networks popping up all over the shop. A little while ago I even flirted with the idea of jumping on the bandwagon and creating a community aspect on ubertramp.com. But, after seeing just what else was already on offer among the other social networking sites (especially those focussing more on backpacking and travel), I decided that my time would be better spent reading Strunk & White’s ‘Elements of Style’, improving me grammer n spelling, and attempting to polish my writing skills. Although some of you may find this hard to accept, I feel there is still room for further improvement… Read more
