I was curious about what others wrote in travel blogs, besides the guidebook sorts of things like where to stay that’s cheap and doesn’t have bedbugs or cockroaches. Here are a couple that I found (just highlight the links and copy and paste into your browser):
http://fathomaway.com/slideshow/fathom-2014-best-travel-blogs-and-websites/ I included the details of the link for the photo of tents in Antarctica, which I don’t think is OK for me to include here even with the appropriate citation. So here’s a totally different photo from one of my trips.
I enjoyed this one by a woman who visited France with her sister and niece. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/pam-townsend/french-idyll-one-visit-three-voices_b_5849426.html?utm_hp_ref=travel-blogs. She’s definitely a woman after my own heart as she comments a lot on the food (who wouldn’t in France). If you have a chance to read my book, Voice of a Voyage: Rediscovering the World During a Ten-year Circumnavigation (available on Amazon.com or order from your favorite independent bookstore) you will find I talk a lot about food from around the world from boiled viper to . . . . Hopefully, you’ll take a look and find out for yourself.
I love Mediterranean food, but also Cambodian, Japanese, Indian, Thai, and the poisson cru in French Polynesia is to swoon over, as well as most other cuisines from around the world. Sometimes what we caught ourselves and ate on our beautiful sailboat, S/V Bali Ha’i III, was pretty good too!
Here I’m enjoying fresh lobster and a nice French wine in the cockpit of Bali Ha’i.
What are your favorite travel blogs? Leave me a comment as I’d like to hear about them.
