Remember Best Of? If you aren’t my mom (aka, you have’t been following since the very beginning of this blog just over one year ago – whoa), Best Of was a Sunday round up of my favourite travel, food, photography, and design posts on the web. It sort of fizzled in April, and while I’ve got no plans to bring it back, I am going to spend the next couple of days while I’m in Antarctica (unless something has gone horribly wrong and I’m stranded on an iceberg somewhere) introducing you to some of my favourite things on the ‘net. (PS – why don’t we call it the ‘net anymore?).
Today, Travel Tuesday, I’m going to introduce you to three of my favourite travel blogs. The thread between these three blogs? The excellent, excellent writing.
I only recently started following So Many Places. I love Kim’s writing, and I find her totally inspirational and totally honest. The perfect mix! There aren’t yet a lot of travel posts (they are currently finishing up saving before leaving on a RTW), but there are so many “quit your job to follow your dream” posts. In fact, Kim’s post (link below) is what inspired my recent Something More post.

Sally (Unbrave Girl) is hilarious. And self-deprecating. And currently living and teaching in China. And despite self-identifying as “unbrave” is actually pretty brave. If you’ve been around since before April, you’ll know how much I love her (she was often my “Best Of” travel post, and if not then she was a special shout out). Sally’s blog posts aren’t short but they make me laugh out loud. Every. Single. Time.

Jodi (the Legal Nomad) has my favourite series on the entire internet, Thrillable Hours. Jodi is an escaped (hmm…. word choice?) corporate lawyer who left on her round-the-world trip around the same time we left on our 2008 RTW. The difference between her and us? Jodi has been travelling since. Her blog is a mix of information, travel essays, food, culture, thrillable hours, bird crap counter (for serious) and more.
