It’s been a while since I’ve let out a little blog love to others in the community. I’m implementing a plan to ensure that it is not months before I do this again. The premise is this. Each week I’ll select my five favorite articles from the Twitter and blogsherpa communities and I’ll post them here on freewheelings.com each Friday. Henceforth to be known as the Freewheelings’ Five on Friday. In addition to posting the articles here and passing a little link love to their marvalous creators I’ll be tweeting each article individually and hooking you up with a stumble as well. So let’s get started.
This post is from the blog La Tortuga Viajera (Traveling Turtle). @TortugaViajera comes to terms with the difficulty of living abroad for extended periods of time and still manages to be in love with the little things. There’s a brutal honesty in this article that really underscored for me what living outside of the box is all about.
Here’s some great Johnny on the spot work from @theplanetd AKA Canada’s Adventure Couple. The photos in this post are wonderful. This goes to show you that you don’t have to depend on mainstream media. You can get the real, unfiltered scoop from your friendly local travel bloggers.
Don’t Shit on the Pavement
… and other travel tips. This post is extremely entertaining while providing some of the best advice for travelers that I’ve seen yet. The travel tips are learned by @Pharaonick from one “wonder dog” Nesma. @Pharaonick is a new find and I’m looking forward to what he comes up with next.
Trip to Antartica
This one comes from the husband of @museumchick as a guest post. I’m really into the idea of Antartica and visiting the crueler places of the world. Check out the amazing photos. I bet that’s the last time he’ll take a bet and jump into the Antarctic Ocean.
This article gives some down to Earth insight on travel as more than a hobby, but an addiction. I wonder myself sometimes why it is exactly that I just keep moving. @everthenomad does pin it down for her part in a way that you’ll just have to read for yourself.
