Best of the Rest (Week Ending 2/4/11)

by Tony · 2 comments

Every week we collect our favorite travel articles from around the web and post them for you to enjoy… So enjoy!

  • Fascinating look at how Kristy at Nerdy Nomad is making money from her travel blog… Kind of an inspiration.
  • “It’s unreasonable to walk away from a good gig in today’s economy, even if you want to do something brave and original…” -Seth Godin being sarcastic.  I think he would like LandingStanding’s plan.
  • Just the kind of post to read if you are starting to doubt why you are doing this blogging thing… Extra inspiration for us as we are working hard to start a business to help fund our RTW trip!
  • Interesting memory from Steph about her visit to Vietnam’s “American War” museum.  Made me wonder how America’s museums might be affected by the old “only victors write history” adage.  I don’t think that was her point…
  • OK OK twist my arm…  I guess I might have to check out Australia.  Backpacking Matt sure makes Australia look great, not that it needed much help.
  • Excited.  Nervous.  Anxious.  But should I also be feeling scared?
  • Interesting… and I get what Julien is saying… but I think travelling the world might open you up to a few more serious injuries than normal.  No?
  • “The poorest 5% of Americans are among the richest people in the world (richer than nearly 70% of other people in the world). The poorest 5% of Americans, for example, are richer than the richest 5% of Indians.” Fascinating chart on world income inequality.
  • I love these breakdowns of the ins-and-outs of travel.  Gives a great sense of what we might experience out on the road.

What a crazy story! Definitely a situation that seems pretty easy to get into though…. we better be careful! Would love to hear more stories.
