The boom of seat sales from various airline companies is also the rise of travel blogs hosted by Blogspot, WordPress and the likes. These travel blogs enumerating countless “what’s hot and what’s not?” of a certain country/province are becoming more and more useful for aspiring jetsetters around the world. Personally, I would like to thank the brilliant minds behind these blogs because they have been helpful to me and my little adventures here and abroad.
So why this is not a travel blog?
Aside from the fact that there are already enough travel blogs out there, I realized that sharing my own stories may send a message that every travel is a story worth telling, whether you label your experience a badass or a dumbass.
2 weeks ago, I met this awesome blogger who stayed in our house overnight. His name is Eric. He’s 28 and traveled more than 40 countries in his millennial year. His blog is remarkable. He’s the modern-day Into the Wild’s Christopher McCandless/Alexander Supertramp. He is not documenting the “usuals”, but the actual emotions, twists and turns (polytropos) of his travels. You can find Eric’s blog HERE but below are some of my favorites:
– I have read his “A Night on Skid Row” and it left me speechless. It’s a long post, but it’s worth your time.
and here’s my picture with the future Christopher McCandless (except the death by poison part):
I have written few of my travels here but not as good as Eric’s:
Now, it’s your time to share your stories. Pack your bag! Inspire us! Motivate us! Make us laugh!
