Well, what a huge privilege. I thank you all kindly for your support over the years and it makes me happy to think that I’ve been able to entertain many a like minded folk that just so happen to have that exact same travel bug as myself! Again thank you, and well done to all the other inductees, long live travelblog.org!!! Reply to this

Amazeballs!! I'm so pleased to have been nominated. I love blogging for myself but it's always supersweet when other people enjoy them too abd makes it all the more worthwhile when I'm falling asleep at my ipad after a long day or being eaten alive by bugs in the jungle whilst looking for free wifi to upload the latest blog!

Thank you for reading and enjoying my modest but thoughtful, I hope, travel blogs. Like many of you, we write not only for ourselves, but for many who cannot travel. We are the fortunate ones, and I hope we meet up on the road.
PS: My golfing days are minimal, now it is cycling across the countryside in places like Europe, SE Asia, Africa, and best of all, our wonderful USA. Reply to this

Thanks for nominating me!
I haven't really traveled a lot compared to many bloggers on this site. But their blogging about their experiences instills an urge to explore the corners of this world. Reply to this

Wow...what an honor to be chosen for the Hall of Fame! What started out as way to communicate with my students during a sabbatical has become an integral part of my traveling. It's a way for me to reflect on my daily experiences in new places, and to document our adventures...Thanks so much, Ali, for creating this community! Reply to this

Wow thank you. We won't be blogging for a while as have hung up our backpacks for the time being, but will definitely be looking at these other blogs for inspiration for our next trip. Thanks again, Liz & Ross. Reply to this

Excited to be a part of this crowd. Some part of me is still shocked that it's not just my mom - on a good day - that follows along! Thanks for the encouragement. Reply to this
