As ever tell us about the best bloggers!

I read a lot of blogs - not as many as I'd like - and no where near as many as are on travelblog.org - so who are you reading?

Why are you reading?

Would the rest of the world be interested?

Nominate and link (if you can) here - look for the little code [blogger=1234] on the homepage of your favorite bloggers. Reply to this

Anyone who's about to or, indeed has been to Bangkok, really must check out Introducing the Bangkok And Southern Thailand Academy of Rip-offโ€™s, Deviousness and Scams from Occasionally Bob A gem of the highest order!

I love Vietna mum's....

they nearly always make me cry, and more determined to do something in the world. She just started doing stuff for people in Hoi An on her holidays and now goes back regularly making a big difference in peoples lives. It goes to show that one person can make a difference!!
click here for her inspiring blogs

I also love We Be Sailing about their adventures in Haiti as not many travellers go there

There are so many, I will think of some more...

of course there is also mine 😉 travellingmum

oh and Ali I think it would be good to put any good ones you find on the front page, even if they are a couple months old, sometimes some good ones are missed 😉 and there are so many travelblogs, who could ever have time to find them all?

I'll nominate Lush, even if he has already nominated himself. Fact is, his tales kept me here all day while I put off a slew of articles that were behind deadline for a client, so I'd say they were pretty engrossing.

I'd also recommend reading Kinga Freespirit's tale. I won't tell you the whole story, simply that hers can teach us all some very valuable lessons, and she'll always have a special place in my heart.

Lush, you drunkard, are you caught up from jetlag yet?! Reply to this

Well Im interested in everything about Peru so I try to read every blog about it. The blogs about Israel, especially Eilat where some of my best friends live now and sometimes I read blogs about Romania, trying to understand how foreign people see my country and culture.
One of the blogs that made me laugh in tears was one about Korea: Korean Toilet Story Korean Toilet Story by Kuno.
There is also Mad Greek's adventures with his lovely Chelly if I recall .. anyways its to early in the morning to remember them all.. keep in touch.. have fun!

I just read all of Kuno's in one hit tonight.... We often have korean students live with us, so I found it interesting... His blogs were hilarious, and he seems to have a talent for writing!

I also read Mad Greek too

I'm reading The Nomad's diaries at the moment, from eastern and southern Europe. His writing style is fantastic, it's the little things about each journey that really inspire you. And there are some good photos too.

Then of course my own, Campo's Russia Highlights and Videos.

Enjoying John McCabe's blogs on Cambodia a lot It's so sad but it happened in this town. I'm really getting a feel for what to expect next week when we leave Thailand to start to blog Cambodia and then Vietnam. Good work fella.

Mr or Mrs Hobo,
Well thank you, I guess, for nominating my blog and doubly thanks for then telling me about it. I was too absorbed in another forum to notice, arguing the case for 29 being way too old to travel.
I'm not sure how to take the "sideways perspective", but its a full 90 degrees better than being "backward".
It's great to hear you're preparing for a RTW trip. As I was not entirely certain what RTW stood for, I asked my friend Jeeves, and after some searching he told me it was either Ready To Wear or Rottweiler. So whether your trip involves fashion or kid-eating dogs I hope its a barking success. I can't see what useful advice you'd get from my rantings though.
Anyway my littlest hobo friend, maybe tomorrow you'll wanna settle down, but until then keep moving on.
PS. I had a quick look at your profile and it says you're in London with itchy feet. I've been there, so let me lend you this advice - if you can't wait for travelling to sooth it, try Lamisil. It worked for me. Give it 5 to 7 days, but if nothing happens consult your doctor. Reply to this

Why new blogs from very popular (and good) bloggers such as bedreddin or Stayloose don't appear anymore in the main page?

Hi Marco - they need to have photos included to be included on the main page. Stayloose's malaria blog did appear a number of weeks ago. Reply to this
