With an education in accounting, management and international business, Alex Hoskinson discovered doing tax returns for a large company was – simply put – dreadful. It was his turning point to follow up on recommendations to teach English in foreign countries. He chose Hungary. The descriptions of his experiences are genuinely enlightening, plus you get a Hungarian word of the day!

500 Places With Kids

‘Turning kids into travelers, one experience at a time.’ is a great lead-in for Anne Patrone’s site. Finding Frommer’s 500 Places to Take Your Kids Before They Grow Up (first edition) on a bookstore shelf set the wheels in motion and the explorations began in earnest. She and her husband, destination lists in hand, are now checking them off as they expand their children’s travel horizons.

Fun As We Go…

Ashley Curtin is a transplanted New Englander now living in California. She is also a self-proclaimed seafood junkie. Whether seeking out shrimp or oysters on the half shell, her travels take her where she can satisfy her addiction and partake of those edible gems of the emerald oceans.

Go, See, Write: Tales of Overland Adventure

Try covering 44 countries on 6 continents without ever having an airline boarding pass in hand at some point. This is exactly what Michael Hodson accomplished over a 16 month period. He may be a lawyer by trade but he’s a traveler at heart. After a stint back home, he’s “On the Road Again” and no doubt has Willy Nelson playing on his (mental) jukebox.

Follow My Trail

Kelly Austria does have a day job (or two) but mountaineering fills her free time. What fills her soul – helping the children who live in those mountains by supplying aid to them. If there is a mountain to be trekked, there will be children along the journey in need of help. You’ll find Kelly there, doing both.


“It is a time to reconnect with my spirit, nourish my soul, take care of my overall health and live freely.” That is how Despina Meris describes her latest travels as the hummingbird who’s favorite color is blue. She also admits to falling down stairs – something hummingbirds rarely experience… Regardless, her site is lyrical and rich with non-stair-related narratives.

SeattleFlyerGuy’s All-Purpose Travel Blog

Planes, trains and automobiles… Oh wait, just make that planes when it comes to Nicholas and his mode of transportation preferences. This is a man who is very serious about his air travel. From terminals to in-flight meals to tips/tricks on bookings, Nicholas covers it all. He even takes time to comment on his destinations when he’s actually on the ground.

The Khalerias

To quote: “Just in case you stumbled here by accident and dont have the first clue what a khaleria is….”, then let me explain. It is one part Sabeena Khan mixed with one part Ryan Galeria. Throw in a couple of backpacks, a camera (or two), give a quick stir and you have a photojournalistic adventure in the making.

The Feral Scribe: Chronicles of a Wayfaring Journalist

Nathan Comp is not your ‘ordinary’ travel blogger. Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, he moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for career reasons. He then became bored with a “prolonged period of profound tedium”. (Tedium tends to do that to people.) He is now traveling around America and possibly other places of the world. Regardless, his blog is enlightening, insightful and full of great stuff.

Dear Lonely Planet… Because there’s no perfect guidebook to life

To call Eric Feldman’s site a bit eccentric would be an understatement. He gave up a life as an attorney to travel and become an activist for human rights. But, it is his view of the world and writing style that make this blog what it is – exceptionally entertaining. His words: “Eric purposefully throws himself into awkward situations in the hopes of having something interesting to later share with strangers at cocktail parties.” Cheers to that!

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

    • Kiwi Blog Bus

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country.
