See Simi Travel Blog

Setting personal goals is something many of us do – Simi has been no different. About 10 years ago, she decided to cover 30 countries by the time she turned 30 years of age. She’s almost there. Sleeping (well, sort of) with baby alligators, participating in volunteer projects and contracting Dengue Fever have not crimped [...]

Go Big or Go Home

Traci Suppa and her family may live in a ‘small’ town (no Starbucks coffee shop) but that does not stop them from thinking BIG. BIG as in road trips and the attractions found off those all-too-often-traveled beaten paths. Have you been to the “World’s Largest Dairy Store” or seen the “World’s Second Largest Garden Gnome”?

Something says he doesn’t spend much time in either place when looking at his travel map. His site’s subtitle – Life of a Traveling Programmer – definitely strikes hammer [...]

urban pilgrim

Lindsay Holmwood left the US for Bangkok as an Associated Press journalist in 2008. As does happen more often than not – life got in the way and she’s been living in Stockholm since 2009. (A move made in the name of love.) Her blog is a compilation of her North American, Asian and Swedish [...]

Jasmine Wanders

A single visit to a WalMart in Mesa, Arizona turned Jasmine Stephenson’s life around. As with many who choose to travel, the “white picket fence” lifestyle of home was not appealing so she sold her possessions and headed to New Zealand. Her blog is a mix of narrative writing, video diaries and photographs detailing her [...]

LandLopers: Experiencing the World On a Budget

Though some may argue the point, “travel” does not revolve solely around backpacking. On the contrary, and Matt Long has proof. He enjoys hotels, resorts, not making his own bed, lounging by the pool and a few other “cushy” amenities. He also does it on a budget. LandLopers is a great place for “how it’s [...]

off-track backpacking

In 2005, while backpacking through Europe, Tanya and Nara met. In the “blink of a cosmic eye”, they became instant friends and now both contribute to off-track backpacking. Their site is a journal of their travels, both together and separately. The entries and two distinctively different writing styles definitely make this blog worthwhile.

The World is my Jungle Gym

From bungee jumping in Acapulco to riding the roller coasters at Great America (Gurnee, Illinois), Brendan van Son accommodates his “adrenalin junky” alter ego. He also taps into his more serious side – the one which finds true wonder in this great big universe or ours.

Vagobond: World Travel, World Citizen, World Vagabond

Vago has hitchhiked across Canada, has lounged on the beaches of Tahiti and has (almost) been robbed by a tricky Macaque on Gibraltar. Most recently, he has experienced an Saharan Nomad Wedding – his own! Now the big question is “Where do they go from here?”

    • 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.
