LandLopers Picks of the Week

Quebec City

1. Engineer on the Road

While I’ve never been an expat, I’m always intrigued at learning more about the lifestyle and the initial culture shock that many times can accompany living abroad. In this post we learn about living in what is a fairly exotic location.

2. Passport and a Toothbrush

I can’t say that I have any great desire to plan a trekking trip to Nepal, but that doesn’t mean I don’t find it intriguing. While a very practical post, this is also a great insight into the realities of exploring such a remote part of the world.

3. Just Chuckin’ It

The best part of producing online content is that our only limitation is our own creativity; a fact many forget. Obviously Ryan hasn’t though, as this post featuring his favorite photos and videos from a recent trip to Canada clearly proves. I love the graphics and presentation; he has truly succeeded in making Eastern Canada look like a place everyone should visit; which I guess it probably is.

    Big thanks for sharing our post on Nepal, especially with some other really rad posts! Did I just say rad? Ugh, I blame you Ryan! Argh, we really need to get out East!

    I like the Yangon one – Anthony Bourdain has an episode about it (and Burma as a whole) in his series ‘Parts UNknown’
