LandLopers Picks of the Week

Dead Sea Jordan

1. GloboTreks

I’ve always said that travel isn’t all puppies and rainbows, but Norbert’s experience in Morocco is not your average bad travel experience. This is a must read post in my opinion not just for the story, but for the lessons as well. And a huge relief that Norbert is ok!

2. Travel Yourself

Jordan is one of my favorite countries and I love reading about other people’s adventures in this remarkable place. This video is one of the best I’ve seen and after watching it you’ll feel like you’ve traveling through Jordan yourself.

3. Uncornered Market

Another favorite destination of mine is New Zealand, although for completely different reasons than Jordan. New Zealand really has it all and is perhaps the most beautiful country I’ve ever visited. New Zealand also has a rich food and wine scene as this great post shares.

4. South Africa Tourism blog

Ok, this is a little self-serving but I just want to make sure you all know about an exciting campaign starting TODAY. 15 bloggers from around the world have descended upon South Africa to Meet South Africa in our own ways and share everything in real time. There are four different itineraries (I’m on the adventure trip) so that we can all cover as much of the country as possible. So take a look at this post and be sure to follow the #MeetSouthAfrica hashtag!

It’s time for international bloggers to #MeetSouthAfrica!
