The past week was truncated here in the United States due to Thanksgiving. Because of the holiday, I have not had a chance to spend a couple of quiet hours perusing my usual online travel haunts. Nevertheless, these posts and even a new site all came to my attention this week. I hope you take a few minutes to learn more about the picks of the week, November 21-27.
The fine folks over at Got Saga are pros when it comes to engaging travelers around the world. Their site is unique and honestly interesting, an increasingly hard feat to achieve. This week they asked several travelers the question: If you had one week to live and could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? The answers are fascinating.
Bessie and Kyle have been traveling the world for more than two years and their blog never fails to both educate and entertain. Since I was in Thanksgiving mode this week, Bessie’s honest post on dealing with the holiday while away from home really struck a chord with me.
Once again this week, one of my favorite posts was on Go, See, Write, the site of Mr. Michael Hodson. I love this post, and his site in general, for Michael’s fierce sense of humor and ability to really take the reader on a journey to places many will never visit. This week’s focus was a witty and informative introduction to a fascinating spit of land in the Caribbean.
My last pick of the week isn’t a specific post, it’s an entire web site. It seems that everyone lately is quitting their job and traveling the world. (at least in the insular world of the travel blogosphere) But once in a while there is someone who is embarking on a journey that is truly remarkable. Such is the case with the self-described Windwalker Duo.
The Dad is a single parent and hospice chaplain who had a simple dream – to raise his child as a citizen of the world, experiencing new peoples and cultures. After years of working in intensive care and trauma, he decided to “Live a Life Without Regrets,” as he puts it.
I intend to follow their adventures as they meander around the world before setting up a new home in Thailand and I encourage you all to do the same.Add to Flipboard Magazine.
