Roaming Rachael

Rachael Hanley got tired of eyebrow-high snow in upstate New York, so she quit her newspaper job, threw away her shovel and headed off to Quito, Ecuador to try her hand at travel writing. She is currently on assignment in Nicaragua and plans to work her way up to Mexico by September.

Notes from the Road: Interview with Erik Gauger

Notes from the Road is a recent addition to TravelBlogs, but it's been around since 1999. The site combines Erik Gauger's stunning photography – shot on a traditional large-format film camera – with his engaging stories about ordinary places.

These days, the site is attracting quite a bit of attention, thanks in part to Erik's detailed coverage of a small Caribbean island's struggle with an American golf course developer.

TravelBlogs caught up with Erik to talk more about travel, photography and the Guana Cay conflict.

    • 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. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
