My Blog Roll: Blogs I follow and friends in blogging. I’ve finally started my list of people I’ve connected with who are doing cool stuff and blogging about it. I’ll be adding to this as these, but these are the people who sprung to mind when I started this list. I’ve clipped some little excerpts from their about us information here, too.
360 Degrees Longitude
Ever dreamed of quitting your job and traveling around the world for a year? Why not bring the family along? But watch out! You’ll find out about more than just food and culture; you’ll learn that a Chilean mall isn’t the best place to get your ears pierced, and that elephants appreciate flowers just as much as the next lady. Read the book, travel with us around the world using Google Earth, or use the information on this site to plan your own trip.
Suneé Sees The World
“I was 18 years old when I first boarded a plane for a foreign destination. Born and raised in South Africa, that first trip to Europe opened my eyes to a whole new world of beautiful scenery, astounding history and interesting people. Since then, I have tried to visit a foreign country at least once a year and have travelled through most of Europe, visited Singapore and Thailand, and braved both Mozambique and Zanzibar on my home continent. This blog serves as a repository for my travel memories and I hope to inspire more people to get off the couch and go out there and explore the world!”
Travel With Teens and Tweens
Planning resources and inspiration for families on the go.Brought to you by Mary T and her three wonderful travelling companions. The goal of this blog is to provide inspiration, reviews and resources for families traveling with teens and tweens.
The World is Calling
We’re the Bergrens, a family living in suburban Colorado, but we have a serious travel bug–and we hope our site will encourage you to travel too. So far our kids (ages 14, 11, and 6) have been to Italy, England, France, the West Indies, and many states within the USA. In 2010, we hope to go to Mexico, California, Montana, Israel and perhaps more.
By the Parton family, people from our home town who recently completed a trip around the world: Our dear family consists of two dreamers and our three children, ages 3-13. If you know us well, you know we look at life as an adventure, and we love to travel near and far. We long to learn about other cultures and traditions, and how we can become better global citizens. On a smaller scale, we hope our travels make us better parents, siblings and human beings. Our blog is dedicated to sharing what we see and learn along the way. We hope you’ll enjoy the ride….
BorderJumpers.org began in October 2009 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia — when Bernard Pollack and Danielle Nierenberg began a journey to visit nearly every country in Africa. At every stop they are meeting with farmers, community organizers, labor activists/leaders, unions, non-governmental organization (NGOs), the funding and donor communities, and local press.
With a Sony handycam, a 8-year old laptop, and sporadic internet connections – their goal is to bring stories of hope from across the region to as large an audience as possible. They will tell the stories that aren’t being told—from oil workers fighting to have a union in Nigeria to innovative ways farmers and pastoralists are coping with climate change.
Olivia, @TeenTraveler, is a high school freshman, basketball player, fledgling driver…and is gearing up to be a serious world traveler. So far she’s been to England, France, Italy, the West Indies and many of the States in the Western U.S.A. She’s looking forward to a trip to Mexico for Spring break, New York and Montana this Summer, and is dreaming about other RTW excursions. Her parents run the web site www.theworldiscalling.com, but Liv wanted her own gig, so here ’tis.
Family on Bikes
The four of us (Mom, Dad and eleven-year-old twin boys) are bicycling from Alaska to Argentina. When we reach the southernmost tip of South America, Davy and Daryl will become the new Guinness World Record holders as the youngest people to cycle the Pan-American Highway! Follow along on our blog!
Soul Travelers 3
A family of three from Santa Cruz, California. Mom and Dad are in our early 50′s and our “nina” was 5 years old when they began. An epic odyssey: open-ended, years long slow trip around the world as a family adventure, unschool, spiritual journey and lifestyle.
We are a family of three, with a passion for travel, seeking out new experiences, meeting new people, and living simply. We are striving to relocate, yes, you read correctly, as in MOVE, to Thailand. We share our stories to: 1) document travel memories for our daughter, 2) showcase that service to others and travel could be combined, 3) travel in and of itself is an educational experience for our child, 4) live with only the *necessities* without the need to overindulge in material possessions, and 5) inspire other families to get out of their comfort zone and explore (even if it means in your own backyard!). It can be done without breaking the bank!
Location Independent websites – including location independent parents –Websites with articles offering a breadcrumb trail for anyone seeking a location independent lifestyle. This might be for a set period of time, like us, or indefinitely. It was a very valuable resource for me during planning.
Falk Custom Adventures –A guide company
Falk Custom Adventures was created by Derek Falk, a resident of Southern California who has always loved traveling, exploring new destinations and immersing himself into unfamiliar cultures. After working many proud and dedicated years as a firefighter and paramedic, Derek finally decided it was time to follow his passion for adventure and start his own company.
Tashi Nyenda Adventure
We never made it to Bhutan, although I still really want to go. I met, virtually, a tour operator there and had several conversations about his amazing country. I’ll probably mae it someday and will probably track down Karma Gyeltshen when I go.
