LandLopers Picks of the Week

The online travel world has been busy lately. Lots of people are traveling, which in turn means a lot of great stories and photos. It’s never easy, but here are just a few of my favorites from November 7, 2010 – November 13, 2010.

The Brooklyn Nomad

While I enjoy articles by travel writers when they discuss far flung locales, I secretly love it when they describe their hometown. There is nothing better than reading a well written essay that describes an area with real passion. Such is the case with this post by Andrew, the Brooklyn Nomad. Lest you think his enthusiasm is false, I met him this summer in NYC and I can assure you that it is real.

Reasons to Fall in Love with Brooklyn

Wild About Travel

Simon brings a unique voice to the travel blogosphere; one which I enjoy reading a great deal. This week though he amazed me with one of his photos, taken while visiting a small town in the UK. I think you’ll love this unconventional look at the Cathedral as much as I did.

Otts World

Simply said, Sherry is an amazing individual. Not only did she have the guts to take a career break and travel the world, but she is now one of the leaders of the career break movement in the United States. I always enjoy visiting her site, relishing in my daily fix of travel porn, but this post struck a chord with me. I discussed a similar topic a few months ago and it is a discussion that I think is both important and timely.

When is Travel Too Dangerous?

My Beautiful Adventures

Andi is just a cool person – enough said. She is incredibly engaging and has been on some amazing adventures. I have loved her Cuba series, and this installment did not disappoint.

    What a wonderful surprise, Matt!

    I feel honored and… I’m blushing! So glad you like to read my stories and you enjoying my photos. I’m just putting so much passion in blogging and it’s nice to know that at least a bit of it is ‘contagious’ 🙂

    Thanks so much for including my post this week – what a fun recap! Gave me some more things to read this week!
    Hoping to gather up a lot of support for the Mongol Rally this summer in our lovely online travel community to help me forget about my fears!
