Jerusalem is a very special place, not surprising since it’s the center of three major world faiths. But it’s more than that, it’s also a very personal place. My own trip there was an extremely powerful one and after reading this moving post by Angie, it seems she had a similar experience.

I’ve never been to Krakow, but posts like this one have moved it to the top of my travel list. Take a look and be amazed by the beauty in places where you may not always expect it.

Brendan is on an interesting journey through Africa, and not one many people would take. His goal is to visit every country in Africa, a feat considered to be one of the most difficult in the travel world. Lack of transportation, corruption and downright danger are the major impediments to travel in some parts of Africa and Sierra Leone is lacking in none of these. That’s why I was so interested to read Brendan’s take on tourism in that beleaguered nation.
