The World First Wander: the best travel writing on the internet - 17th November 2014
Here we go again with our weekly look at last week’s best and most useful travel blogs and articles from around the internet.
Let’s kick of with a funny, yet philosophical post from Elle-Rose Williams from her travel blog – The World and Then Some. If you ever thought about what travel brings you, then this will show you one side of it. Take a peek at 11 things you learn about yourself when travelling and see which of those you can relate to. Just look at that sunburn though! Ouch.
Sometimes you don’t need to travel far to experience amazing journeys. The London Eye is one of those journeys that takes you all over the city without going anywhere. It is truly fantastic!
If you have never been then you might want to read this informative post from Sunny in London about going up on the Eye. Everything you need to know – along with some nice pics – is on the post Advice on how to fly high .
If London is not your cup of tea then maybe Exmoor will be more your kind of thing. We love it, as it’s just a short hop from our Exeter office. In fact, it’s just upstream! Exmoor is the source of the River Exe, which flows through Exeter before hitting the sea at Exmouth.
Travel Candy’s latest post Exmoor: Red Stag Adventure in Doone’s Land is really inspirational. It’s simply written and illustrated by good shots that will help to put you right there among the heather! Something for the wish list!
Mind you, there are plenty more adventures to be had on these lovely islands of ours. This post from Escapisim Magazine might get your heart racing with the possibilities. How about climbing on Dartmoor, cycling the Severn Valley or kayaking in Northern Ireland? Sounds good? You need to READ THIS!
One of our favourite writers – and a regular in the World First Wander is Zoë Dawes aka The Quirky Traveller. She has put together a stunning looking list of her Top 10 Lake District Views. Lovely. Tarn Hows looks amazing doesn’t it?
Before we sign off for another week we’re going to venture further afield for a jaunt to Ko Chang , Thailand’s second largest island. Jodie from The Little Backpacker has written all about her experience of this tropical hot spot in Travel Journal – A Journey to Ko Chang.
It’s enough to set you off making travel plans isn’t it? If you haven’t yet decided where to take your next break then you might like to see Liz Jarvis’s 2015 Travel Wish List from The Mum Blog. Who wouldn’t want to go to Hawaii?
Well that rounds off another great week! Don’t forget to let us know if you have seen any great travel posts this week. Either leave the link in the comments below or send me a tweet to @wftristan. Thanks.
Until next week.
