Here is the second installment of ‘Most excellent travel blog posts‘ where I share with you the words I most enjoyed reading this month. I hope you’ll like them too.
The one that made me laugh
Sally’s blog posts are always hilarious but this one stood out in particular, perhaps because Steve and I were under the weather too so the “hallucinations” tickled us. Read on for tales of dragon-fruit pizza and peppermint prunes.
The reflective ones
I’ve been following Kyle and Bessie’s journey in Asia for some time and was interested to know how they’d cope with the transition back to Chicago. This is the first post of two, which answers that question ‘How does it feel to be home?’.
I love these ‘what I’ve learned’ posts and this one is a brilliant example. Steph doesn’t normally blog about her work and this is a great insight into her life as a travel blogger. As a newbie, it was a wonderfully inspiring read, and so much of it rang true even in these early days.
The ones that inspired me
I know I included the Globetrotter Girls last month but this post was so spot-on that I couldn’t resist it. It even kicked me into gear and got me practising yoga again, which is no mean feat. It looks as the challenge of staying healthy on the road and has prompted some excellent discussion in the comments.
I discovered Nathan’s site in the comments of the Globetrotter Girls’ article and instantly signed up to his email series ’5 ways to awesome days’, which includes 5 tips on how to stay healthy wherever you are. I’ve only had two so far but I’m already finding them useful. This is a great site for anyone looking to stay healthy on the road.
The beautiful ones
Last month I featured Torre’s plans for her $5 bungalow in Thailand. These are the results and they’re even more stunning then originally imagined.
We’re really enjoying all the Capture the Color blog posts, and this is one of our favourite entries so far. Overyonderlust is full of heat photos and this is an awesome selection.
The one that taught me something
This isn’t a blog post but it’s an incredibly powerful article from The Guardian that I wanted to include. The content is deeply saddening but it’s an important read. Despite having worked in development for three years, I am continually shocked by the way people treat each other in this world.
The useful one
This blog wasn’t posted in July but it was so useful to me that I’m including it anyway. It gives step-by-step instructions for renewing your visa in Salta, Argentina. It’s incredibly useful but didn’t stop me from signing the form in the wrong place and becoming the laughing stock of the office!
