Some travel inspiration
I wasn’t going to blog at all today, I am trying to restrict myself to five posts a week although at the moment it’s six, when I finally start working (it’s coming!) then I think five will be about the maximum I can manage. But I have a free afternoon and I thought a quick post was in order. I wanted to share a bit of love and point my readers to a couple of travel blogs that have inspired me of late.
I’ve been discovering over the last two months a big network out there of travel blogs, people that read and support each other, and it’s helped me connect and get a few more hits on my blog and I’ve got to say – whatever you’ve seen and done in your life, whatever countries you’ve managed to visit, there’s always those out there who stun you by what they’ve seen, achieved and the way they’ve gone about it.
So I thought I’d turn your attention to a few posts, and encourage you to have a look and if you like them, look further around their website.
Agness and Cez are truly inspirational bloggers. They appear to have done it all! This post below is about a short stay in Singapore and how they were able to get away with spending hardly any money at all. It’s a great post!
2. Fractions of the World
I just love this blog. It’s so amazingly inspiration, with amazing photos and often simple posts, like the one below. Sometimes a photo says it all, and is much easier to digest than my 1500-word ramblings. Tine inspires with every post, and sends a bit through on Google +, and everything is worth a few minutes of your day.
3. Life to my Fullest
Sha hails from Singapore, and writes a lot about travelling solo. She writes pretty regularly, and she writes about the experiences of travelling. It’s often very reflective and Sha was also pretty much the first person who commented on my blog when I moved it to Word Press. THANKS! Here’s a great post from Sha –
4. Diary of a Traveller
Film-maker, a brilliant photographer, and traveller on a bike, Zahariz hails from Malaysia and is presently in China. I have followed his adventures through Mongolia to China, and perhaps he is the most inspiring of all blogs I have read. His photos are always stunning, his portraits moving, and his destinations seem out of this world. I LOVE this blog.
The following post is from Mongolia, just before he entered China, and is truly moving. The photos are incredible and the sentiment is clear.
5. Turquoise Compass
Jessica is someone I discovered around a month ago, and she makes me feel okay about posting nearly every day because somehow she manages too! She’s recently been down to Australia, and I’ve been reading a lot of posts about my home state of Victoria, which I returned to just over two weeks ago now, but she has been so many other places as well it’s mind boggling. Tomorrow there is going to be a great guest post from her here on my blog, highlighting Guyana – making it the first post post (excluding my bucket list) on South America!
And that’s just a start! There are many more out there, I easily could have listed 20! and I will come back in a few weeks and point you, dear reader :), in the direction of some more. Please come back tomorrow for Jessica’s guest post on Guyana! Until then – may the journey never end!
