On this day of love, what better way to celebrate V-Day than thanking you… our tremendous readers, tweeters, and commenters.

Just in January, we climbed mountains in Patagonia, traipsed all over Santiago hunting for the best food, and even stared in awe at a 150 foot wall of ice.

We have been fortunate to meet so many interesting people through LandingStanding that have all made our travels much more entertaining. We have even connected with other travel bloggers on the road, such as Emily in Chile, that we have been able to share experiences with and learn from. Having been on the road for a month, we are now fully aware of how complex (yet rewarding) world travel can be so we appreciate all the guidance we have received from those who have been in our shoes.

One such example would be our coffee date with Adventurous Kate prior to our RTW trip.  Kate is another Bostonian who is living our dream life… Traveling the world as a full-time job!  During our meet up with her, Kate helped answer all of our questions and calm our anxieties about travelling the globe. She even provided us with helpful tips on how to expand our blog in the backpacker community – Something she is a pro at!

Kate has a massive following of devoted readers through her website and was kind enough to highlight LandingStanding in her monthly newsletter. Check out what she said (and sign up for her great newsletter while you’re at it):

I am loving the posts from Tony and Meg of LandingStanding!  These two, an American married couple, are relatively new travel bloggers who just set off on their round-the-world trip.  I met them at home in Massachusetts just days before they left, and they are currently in Chile.  Check out Why You Must Shave Your Head For RTW TravelMeg Has a Foodgasm at Aqui Esta Coco, and The Best Damn Sandwich. Seriously.

There are three things that make this blog great: Tony and Meg both have a great sense of humor, they shine as individuals rather than a “we we we” couple, and they don’t take themselves seriously whatsoever.  Their blog is a joy to read, and I look forward to following them around the world.

Because of your support, willingness to share our adventures with friends, and referrals from other travel bloggers like Kate, our audience has grown to over 1,800 monthly readers! Because of the great feedback you give us about our latest misadventures, we will hopefully continue to entertain not just Kate, but as many people as possible!

Additionally, your continued support means that we can continue to take advantage of some great sponsorship opportunities. You will soon be reading about a mind-meltingly good food tour we just went on in Buenos Aires and the tremendous apartment we are staying at in Palermo… all thanks to you!

So thank you again for everything you have done to share our story with friends and to join in the discussion through the comments section. We always look forward to hearing from you and desperately need all of the advice we can get. Traveling the world is hard!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

You guys do have some great stuff, and I’m glad you’re getting noticed! Our travel blog is fairly new as well, and doesn’t it feel so great to be welcomed by some of the more established bloggers? It sure makes this blogging thing less intimidating! Looking forward to reading and sharing more of your stuff, happy V day!

Thanks so much! More than getting noticed, it is just how much we love having a great network of people to talk to about travel. We need so much help and advice and people are always so willing to give it!

People have been so great to share our site with others… we just felt like saying thanks!

Looking forward to many more posts from you two. Yes go to Iguaza Falls!

Ahhhh Iguazo! I don’t think we’ll make it this trip! Just might have to on another RTW adventure in the near-future…
