Travelling on the Internet

Having started blogging (not too seriously) a few years back I’ve watched blogging take on a new identity through the many talented people that are willing to spend a considerable amount of time sharing their words and images about the countries, cities or passions that they love. While I don’t spend hours every day reading other’s blogs there are a few blogs that really stand out that I have discovered. If you visit these you will be inspired to travel, both locally and internationally in a peaceful and world sensitive way.

Travelin' Local

Travelin' Local

Travelin’ Local – Lisa Newton’s blog should be a model for anyone that wants to promote local tourism, shopping, culture and most importantly travelling both for recreation and work with a minimal impact on our planet. Her blogs subtitle “From Los Angeles to San Diego and everything in between” says it all. This blog covers everything. Lisa is a very talented journalist and photographer and whether you are interested in the Los Angeles area or just travelling locally in your own “backyard” she will have you motivated to enjoy life with a minimal impact. En Route is an amazing travel and photography blog by a fellow by the name of Ferdinand Decena. His writing and photography have won numerous awards during the past few years so if you enjoy travel on an international level this is a must read. Ferdinand meets the “real people” of the many countries he visits so don’t expect any information about Club Med on this blog. Highly recommended for those that love exploring other cultures with minimal impact.

People that know me well realize I have a love-hate relationship with computers. I certainly value what the modern computer can do for me; providing me with an excellent method of doing photography (the film days are gone!), letting me research both before and after a trip, keeping track of my life and the best for last, letting me explore the world through the eyes of others. These two talented individuals are what make blogging a very special way of communicating and sharing information.

    Hi Lisa and Lisa…

    It really amazes me how many well done blogs are out there. Both of you do an excellent job.

    Blogging for me has become an excellent way to “publish” and share information with a widespread audience and Travelin’ Local is a fine example of this approach. I see blogs becoming a very acceptable alternative to magazine and book publishing although I would hate to see traditional publishing become extinct.
