This is a list of websites that I like, and think you should check out too:
An American Girl in Transit – Leora’s travels around the world in search of fashion, food, art, culture, and design.
Be My Travel Muse – Kristin is a former investment banker who sold all of her belongings and bid the life she knew goodbye in favor of becoming a solo nomad in search of off-the-beaten-path adventures.
Dromomaniac – A good read and take on the world, as well as tons of info about saving money on travel and getting the most out of airlines.
East is Relative – Katie has followed a similar path to me, starting as a teacher in China and then moving on to travel a bit. Read her stuff for another take on living in the Middle Kingdom!
Famsterdam Life - A travel, lifestyle and bicycle blog. Fabio mixes up all three with Amsterdam as his headquarters.
FoxNomad – High tech travel and journeys through destinations far from the usual.
Gin and Tacos - Really smart political commentary that restores my faith in (at least a small slice of) America a little bit each time I read it.
Go Power Kick – Mike writes about travel, food, and… power kick? Ok, you’ve lost me there. The travel and food, though? Totally.
Holes in My Soles – A New Zealand shoemaker’s travel blog, and an idea I can totally empathize with: traveling so much that you’ve worn out your shoes.
Jessie on a Journey – Native New Yorker backpacking and volunteering around the world, with an independent/outdoorsy/budget ethos that I like a lot.
Kate’s Footprints – Kate is currently leaving footprints all over South Korea while teaching English and preparing to walk through even more of the world.
Nomadic Samuel – A self-proclaimed man of many hats, permanently on the move and constantly writing it up with dripping sarcasm.
ThePale - Brilliant web-comic featuring great art and a unique presentation. Start at the beginning and read the whole story, and you’ll thank me.
Running Through This World – Travel blog with a heavy emphasis on somewhere I particularly identify with traveling in: China!
Smoke Me a Kipper – Erik is a great writer travelling through really interesting parts of the world.
Travel Junkette – Beautifully designed site from an American girl I traveled with for a bit in Mongolia. Definitely check this link out.
Travel Land Graphs - Ryan’s site brings travel and informative graphics together into one whole. Those are just two of my favorite things!
Travels of Adam - Bostonian travel blogger who saw the light and started his own world journey.
Travel Wkly – World Travel Blog sites covering destinations all around the world.
Also, my Philosophy department in college remembered me fondly enough to put up a short profile of what I’ve done since graduation. Check that out here.
