Everything Everywhere. Gary Arndt sold his house, threw all his stuff in storage and hit the road armed with his laptop, camera and a few changes of clothing. He has one goal in mind, to travel around the world and, well, see everything, everywhere. He hasn’t looked back since March 2007. With a new photo posted every day, podcasts and Gary’s personal list of “Wonders of the World,” current travelers and cube monkeys alike are living vicariously through his adventures.
Nomadic Matt. A self described twenty-something vagabond, Matt has been on the road regularly since 2005. His travel tips range from a five part series on teaching English overseas to finding cheap accommodations. Travel photos, video, guest posts and travel philosophy ramblings like his “Of Backpackers and Tourists” post keep his readers engaged and interested.
Almost Fearless. Currently traveling in Central America, Christine Gilbert’s philosophy is “Quit your job. Travel the World.” Formerly a bored and unsatisfied manager in a large Fortune 500 Company, she’s taken travel writing and photography by storm and shares her tips and experiences with readers. She also blogs about budget travel in Europe at Europe Shoestring.
Nerd’s Eye View. Seattle-based writer, Pam Mandel writes about travel topics from her love of Hawaii (she even plays the ukulele) to Austria (her husband is Austrian) to goings-on in Seattle. She’s got a unique voice and sense of humor and is philanthropic to boot. (See our post on Passports with Purpose.) She also blogs weekly about travel for Blogher as well as for World Hum.
Travel Rants. Darren Cronian began writing Travel Rants in 2005 after a disappointing experience with a travel agency. He’s been contributing controversial rants on all facets of the travel industry ever since. Check out his blog for some of the latest consumer travel content on the web.
