Welcome to our inaugural weekly update! Each Sunday, we’ll write a quick update on what happened in the past week along with some of our favorite posts from around the travel blogosphere. So grab a cup of sugary, yet strong Vietnamese coffee (or your favorite Sunday morning beverage) and read on!
We’ve been spending the past few weeks traveling through Vietnam, from Saigon to Hanoi. It’s been an interesting experience, in some ways exactly what we expected, but surprising in others.
This week we updated our RTW Itinerary and RTW pages, which was long overdue. Our guest post was featured on The Planet D, and Josh wrote a detailed article on how to travel the world for $346. You may have noticed there are now advertisements on the site. With our goal of location independence, we are searching out ways to support our travels, and this is a start. Please contact us if you are offended in any way.
Some of our favorite reads of the week:
- Ryan at Just Chuckin’ It wrote a candid post about his impending decision to head home or stay in New Zealand. As travel bloggers, it’s easy to only write about the positive experiences, and we really appreciate his honesty and look forward to seeing him back on the road.
- We can’t WAIT to get back to Bangkok in just under a week. Wild Junket made it hard to stop thinking about it, by staying in Lub d, our favorite Bangkok hostel.
- As much as we miss Chicago, we’re glad to not be there this week, due to all the craziness of the NATO summit. Spreading Hearts is hoping to spread a heart to president Obama at the summit. We support Jeanne and her big dreams!
- I couldn’t stop laughing at The Time I Was Blind and Naked in Public on Jack and Jill Travel the World. It reminds me of the hilarious Kazakhstan episode of Anthony Bourdain. I might have to give this a try when we visit the Middle East (but I’ll wear my contact lenses).
