Congratulations on winning Blogger of the Month Bellini

Michael Bellini

My blog serves two purposes: to let friends and family know what I'm up to while on trips abroad, and to give travel advice from the perspective of a fellow traveler, rather than from a guidebook writer.

I only use a smartphone for the writing and photos, so excuse any errors or blurs.

Thanks for the nomination and acknowledgement! I'm a teacher, so I always have 2-3 months to travel in the summer. My big trips always form organically, but some early options for next year include living in Ecuador or Honduras to become more fluent in Spanish, doing Southeast Asia properly, India and maybe a little Mongolia and/or Bhutan, or backpacking and camping in northern Europe.

I love this site because it allows us all to tell what we're doing or give advice simply for the purpose of exchanging data. Reply to this

All your proposed options for next year sound amazing! I look forward to seeing how your travels unfold... and now that you have five followers, your next blog (if at least 500 words with a minimum of four photos) will be featured on the front page 😊 Reply to this

Travel on!

If you need information on Bhutan let us know. We loved our time there and can recommend a guide. Reply to this
