LandLopers Picks of the Week

1. Hole in the Donut

Barbara has a unique ability to imbue her posts with soul and spirit, and this one is no different. In this piece she shares the story of an extremely unique mode of transportation, one that sadly may not be around much longer.

2. Waegook Tom

If you read LandLopers regularly then you know that I recently returned from an amazing trip to Cape Town, South Africa. I fell in love with the city and the country and want to encourage as many people as possible to visit so that they can fall in love too. Tom is seriously considering a visit to Cape Town, and the reasons he gives in this post are great examples of what makes Cape Town so great.

3. Over Yonderlust

A few places seem to capture everyone’s imagination, and Alaska is one of those destinations. There’s just something about this enormous yet under-explored wilderness that is so exciting, it begs for adventure. Although I’ve never been to Alaska it’s been near the top of my travel wish list for a long time, and the photos in this post prove why.

4. Jandal Road

Sometimes just when you think everything has been written about famous cities, you stumble upon something new. This piece about a beautiful and little known walking tour in London is just such a post and I’ve added this fun walk to my London to-do list.

    Hi Matt: Thanks so much for featuring my post about the Bamboo Train in Cambodia. This kind of thing would never happen in the U.S.- no guard rails, not even brakes on these rail cars that speed down an old railroad overgrown with vines and trees. It was totally unsafe and I absolutely loved every minute of it!

      Those are the best kinds of experiences, aren’t they? Thanks for sharing it with all of us!
