LandLopers Picks of the Week

Milna, Croatia

1. Waegook Tom

A few years ago I discovered a strange thing on a bridge in Europe, a series of locks chained to a bridge with initials on them. I was intrigued and decided to learn more about them. The story of their origination is fascinating, as is how many strange places they can be found. This post is a great collection of some of the best love locks photos from around the world.

2. The Travel Bite

This is a great story of a foodie who met her match while traveling through Croatia. I don’t just love the post because I happened to be there with Rachelle, but because it shows that everyone, even a foodie, has foods that they don’t like. It makes me as a picky eater feel better about my own culinary habits. Plus this is just a really fun read.

3. Brendan’s Adventures

I followed Brendan’s extensive adventure through Africa with interest and jealousy. It was a remarkable trip, made possible by the purchase of a scooter Brendan named Anne Murray, a quirky nod to his own Canadian heritage. This is the story of saying goodbye to his loyal companion, a narrative as funny as it is heartwarming.

4. Y Travel Blog

Earlier this week I wrote about how to find and live your passion. It’s something I believe in and it’s a way in which I really want to help people. This wonderful and intensely personal post by Craig hits along similar themes in a way that is incredibly inspirational. Trust me, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and read this post in its entirety. It is heartwarming, motivating and just damn good.

I want to know your secret

    Thank you so much for including Craig’s post Matt. It was a very brave one to right and a painful experience. Even worse living through it 🙂

    We’re just so glad that something great has come from that experience and we can now share to help others.

      Those are the hardest to write, but which give the most value; not just to the reader but yourselves as well. You all are awesome and I really love what you’ve done.
