Trail of Ants

Trail of Ants is the witty blog of Ant, a young Englishman who set off on a round-the-world backpacking trip in mid-2007. Over the past year, his travels have taken him through eight of Asia’s most inspiring countries and brought him to Melbourne, where he’ll spend the next few months living and working.

Road Trip from New Zealand to New York: Interview with Steve Shoppman

From New Zealand to New York in two Toyota 4x4s. That's exactly what Steve Shoppman, his friend Steve Bouey, and a changing crew of extras are attempting, living out their dreams while raising awareness of the world's diversity.

After setting out from Auckland in February 2007, Steve, Steve and the rest of the crew made their way through Australia, Asia and far north Europe before turning south and driving through Europe into Africa.

TravelBlogs caught up with Steve via email while they were in the Congo.

Euros Ate My Dollars

Euros Ate My Dollars: Interview with Ben and Brittany

Occasionally, I receive an email from a reader suggesting I check out a new blog. A while ago, one reader strongly recommended Euros Ate My Dollars, the entertaining travel blog of Ben and Brittany, a couple from the United States on an 8-month trip through Europe and Southeast Asia. Ben and Brittany have just arrived in Thailand after spending the past six months working their way through Greece, Italy, France, Spain and Portugal.

They were happy to tell me a bit more about their trip so far, why they decided to do it in the first place, and what it's like travelling as a couple.

Gone Backpacking: Interview with Dave Lee

Dave Lee is the blogger behind Go Backpacking, a website encouraging people to do exactly that. Since late 2007, he has taken his own advice and set out on a 'round the world backpacking trip, which has so far taken him through New Zealand, the Pacific, Australia and Indonesia.

In this interview with TravelBlogs, Dave talks about why he believes it's important for people to travel, as well as some of the highlights of his trip so far.

    • 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.
