I was first attracted to this post because I thought it sounded interesting, but that’s not why I love it. I love this post for the incredible sense of humor evidenced in every line. Is it informative? Yes, no question. But it’s delivered in a smart and brilliantly funny way that makes it a true pleasure to read.
This post wasn’t what I thought it’d be. Reading the title I’m not sure exactly what I anticipated, but it certainly wasn’t the well written, insightful commentary I found. This opened my eyes in a lot of ways and made me think about travel, politics, economics, social parity, etc. If you haven’t read this yet, you should and I guarantee that you too will be surprised by the point of view shared in this enlightening post.
I chose this post because it’s a great example of how powerful a blog can be. Yes, we talk about destinations and offer advice, but ultimately the blogs are about us – our personalities. Katie not only paints a beautiful picture of Armenia, but reveals a lot about herself. I’m sure it was a cathartic experience, but it’s also intimidating to be so open to the world. Well done Katie and thank you for sharing.
Love of travel does not exist without influences from other areas of interest, including an oft overlooked one, art. Art and travel go hand in hand and it’s difficult to be a tourist without being influenced by art at some point during the adventure. I love this post because 1) it’s about Scotland and 2) it talks about an interesting activity that many people might not consider, but which they certainly should.
