50 travel blogs I can’t live without

Last year at about this time, I profiled the most influential and inspiring travel blogs of 2007. This year, I’ve combined them into a single list of blogs I can’t live without.

My methodology is simple. I looked at every travel blog I follow from my RSS reader and identified the ones I read the most. Here are the results:

    Did you ever get my question? I just returned from a long trip and frankly don’t remember the particular problem l was writing about. My email address is lbromb@gmail.com

    I have a suggestion that may prove helpful You may already have it ,but l can’t find it.
    Have a space, at the start, for people to look-up problems by catagory, i.e.
    car rental problems, hotel problems, etc. Theses can also be cross referenced with type of, such as, baggage, seating. agent problems, etc.

  • Contemplating

    I really enjoy http://www.MeAndFrenchie.com.  It’s filled with lots of inspirational pictures that has me contemplating to take off as well.  When I see the prices of some countries, I think I’m overpaying for a weekend in Las Vegas; I should take off for 6 months in another country instead.

    I would like to introduce a special travel blog. The goal of this website is to provide tools to share and remember travel experiences (maps, articles, picture albums, atlas,  gps data viewer ,…) but also to collect money for charity.
    Some features need to be bought (only 1$ a month) and the money is given to action against hunger (an organization that fights the lack of food and water in some regions of the world).
    It is just starting so I think it needs a bit of help. It is not everyday that that a travel blog is here to help people in need.

    So the website is http://www.mylifemytrips.com
    for example some articles : about uluru : http://www.mylifemytrips.com/particle/?id=36
    about Israel : http://www.mylifemytrips.com/particle/?id=34
    Some pictures : http://www.mylifemytrips.com/slider/?pid=2247

    A bit of blatent self-promotion here. My blog http://wwwbeejay4016travel.blogspot.com is fairly new but already getting heaps of views of my time in Paris, and – just started today – a slow, leisurely week on a canal boat in Burgundy. I’ll be following this French holiday with travel to Norfolk Island, Tasmania, Hong Kong, Singapore, and four more trips to France. I’d love you to check out my blog.

    This is a top site, and I am so glad I found it.
