Last year I faced one of my biggest problems – overpacking. With the help of Scottevest, I took the light baggage challenge and spent a week traveling around New Zealand with only my vest and a small, very small, duffel bag. Since then I’ve become a much more judicious packer and I love the freedom it gives me. That’s why this post appealed to me so much as it provides practical advice so that anyone can travel without bringing along a steamer trunk.
I meant to highlight this post last week but, well, I forgot. Sorry about that. Anyway, Bhutan is one of those travel mysteries since so few people actually get to visit this mountain nation. Instead of the photo posts I so often see though, this one tackles the food of Bhutan in a fun and engaging way. So go learn all about the culinary side to one of the least visited countries in the world.
Today is St. Patrick’s Day and I couldn’t think of a better blog, or post for that matter, than this one. I love Irish Fireside every day of the year, but visiting the site on St. Patrick’s Day just seems so right. Erin Go Braugh!
I’m very pleased to share this for a couple of reasons. One, it’s a newish site by a good friend of mine and I think it looks great and the posts are interesting and engaging. Second, this post in particular is about a remarkably tragic event and Erin shares with us all her very personal connection with that all too sad day.
