Travel Blog Round Up — 5 Favorite Posts


Check out these five great posts I ran across this week. Good stuff!

Patrick and Akila at The Road Forks have a lovely post about how serendipity can hide in the most unexpected places (or ailments). In this case, a chest cold delayed them just long enough to stumble into a monk’s funeral in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Excellent writing and beautiful photographs. Unexpected funeral

Lillie at Around the World “L” has penned a sensitive and sobering piece about the Cape Coast slave castle in Ghana. Cape Coast Slave Castle

Answering one of my long-unanswered questions, SteveO of Asian Ramblings says “snake, please.” Snake: Does It Taste Like Chicken?

Chris at Chris Around the World has a juicy post: 5 Reasons to Visit Granada. My favorite is #3: you can hike in the rain forest in the morning and be on the beach by afternoon. 5 Reasons to Visit Granada

Ok, I’ll admit: I’m a fire freak — I consider the campfire to be the original, primal television. Growing up in the country, we always seemed to find an excuse to start a bonfire in the family fire pit. For the holidays, to this day, we still seek out the largest “Yule Log” we can possibly move and manhandle it into the pit — last year I got a hernia for Christmas. With that in mind, check out Lauren Girardin’s guest-post at The Brooklyn Nomad. Festivals for Pyromaniacs

Aw shucks. Thanks for including me and my list of Festivals for Pyromaniacs in your favorites. You’ve put me in the mood for a very-early Yule Log.
