1. Brendan’s Adventures

This week something horrible happened to a fellow travel blogger, his livelihood was stolen. While traveling through Ecuador, a group of tricky thieves relieved Brendan of several thousand dollars worth of camera equipment. This post details the event as well as how you can help.

2. Go, See, Write

There’s been a lot of debate surrounding tourism and certain countries in the midst of internal turmoil. Michael tackles this sensitive subject as it relates specifically to Egypt in a position I whole heartedly agree with, but which many will not.

3. Career Break Secrets

When Jeff isn’t on his mission to make career breaks accepted and encouraged in the US, he’s providing us reasons to get out and see more of the world. This week he highlighted one of my favorite places, Vancouver. Go, read and be inspired to visit this great Canadian city.

4. Wandering Earl

Travel teaches us a lot about ourselves, life and the world around us. It also teaches us about the culture and politics of the places we visit, as Earl so expertly explores in this post. I learned a lot reading this, which in my opinion is the mark of any successful travel post. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    I appreciate the mention Matt and am happy to know that the post was educational. The time I spent in Bosnia overall was probably the most eye-opening of any of my previous travels! It’s basically an entire country that very few of us really know anything about…
