1. The Quirky Traveller

I was first attracted to this post because I had never before heard of Puerto Pollensa. I, incorrectly, assumed it was in South America, but I soon learned that it is another great destination in one of the most beautiful areas of the world.

2. Bacon is Magic

I love dogs, a lot, and apparently so does Ayngelina. I have rescued three dogs, two of which are Siberian Huskies, so any mention of dog sledding instantly draws my attention. I’m usually very skeptical about the activity as a tourist experience, but I love this post for the positive spin Ayngelina puts on the sport.

3. Being Koy

I have to admit, this is a new site for me, but I already really enjoy it. I loved this post in particular because it’s about a part of the world I love (Turkey) and is a beautifully written argument for the importance of slow travel, something I rarely have the opportunity to do myself.

Choosing the slow path

4. Trans-Americas Journey

I love the story behind this travel site and been following their adventure for a long time. One thing I don’t think travel bloggers do enough is to detail some of the annoying, confusing and bizarre experiences that necessarily occur on any trip. This story about a failed border crossing highlights the fact that travel is unpredictable and sometimes difficult, but that’s what makes it such a great experience.
