LandLopers Picks of the Week

Road Forks
1. Uncornered Market

Lots of travel terms get bandied about without a lot of thought about what they actually mean; especially the term sustainable. Sustainable travel is about a lot more than just being green or eco-friendly, it’s a holistic approach to travel and living the mantra ‘Do No Harm.’ That’s why I love this post detailing some easy and simple ways we can all be better travelers and work to sustain the world around us in the best sense of the word.

2. The Road Forks

I can always count on the great folks at The Road Forks for great information and even better food photos, both of which this post has in abundance. I learned a lot about Budapest after reading this and now more than ever can’t wait to visit someday. In the meantime this post will have to do, even though it makes me hungry just to read it.

I’ve never been to Berlin, but I, like many others, have certain preconceived notions. Gritty, modern and dynamic all come to mind, which is generally well reflected in these stunning photos from Cheryl. More than just some travel photos, these images really tell a story and mirror real emotion and soul. Go take a look and see what I mean.

4. A Little Adrift

If you want to know what’s it’s really like to experience Luang Prabang in Laos, look no further than this post. A combination of beautiful prose and stunning photos transport the reader to this remote locale. I especially love it because in just a couple of weeks I’ll be in Luang Prabang, enjoying the same experiences.

    Very nice selection; glad you included Uncornered Market’s post on sustainability which is a term that’s becoming an empty shell, nothing more than a marketing buzzword.

    Thanks so much for including our sustainable travel post in this round up. The point that you made about sustainable travel being more than just environmental is so important to us. We hope that we can continue to get the message across on our blog, as well as through GSTC channels, the people and economic aspects as well. And, as Bob mentioned, we also hope we may help bring some meat to what sustainable travel is *really* about instead of it being used as a buzzword (happens too often).
