Imagine if we were all required to spend at least one year of our lives living overseas? How different do you think the world would be?
While there are countless travel blogs to peruse the ones that keep drawing me back are written by a unique nomadic tribe, Citizens of the World. These are people who can pick up sticks, navigate a new land, thrive doing it and wouldn’t have it any other way.
One such blog is the Cool Travel Guide penned by Dubai-based professional travel writer Lara who, with her husband, travels the globe to write guidebooks and articles. Check out her recommendations on the 10 Places You Must Go in 2008.
Another favorite read is My Marrakesh, which I have posted on before. Written by Maryam, My Marakesh chronicles the lives of an American family in Marrakesh building a guest house. It also features beautiful design. Check out her post on the beautiful treasure she found in Bamako, Mali.
These two are the inaugural entrants into Escape From New York’s blog roll. I will be adding more excellent travel blogs periodically.
