Sherry from Otts World hiked, drove and camped her way through Oman and her story is simply amazing. If you love roughing it during your travels, Oman seems to be the place for you!
Dean from The Road To Anywhere takes a road he’ll never forget. Make sure to check out the amazing ‘camping under the stars’ picture at the end of the post. Love!
At TBU I was asked to do this activity, but as I’m a chicken where as Lauren from Monkeys and Mountains is, well awesome, I have to go and read her posts about how amazing the experience was. Brave Girl!
Kate from Adventurous Kate can’t stop raving about her road trip along the Garden Route and Eastern Cape and after reading her extensive guide, you can see why. Makes you want to pack your bags and leave tonight!

I want to… Learn Something
Some great life lessons that Liz from Young Adventurous has picked up along the road. Both from a traveller as a blogger point of view. And most of them are quite hilarious, too.
Caz from yTravelblog visited a local hill tribe on the top of a mountain in the Chiang Rai province of Thailand. It was the first time ‘outsiders’ were allowed into the village, but authenticity was kept through a counsel managing it as a community based tourism project, conserving the value of the individual culture and environment. A great concept!
With my dad being a (now retired) archeologist, I couldn’t help but get attracted by this article on The Planet D. Thomas Dowson writes a great guest post about his love for this profession. And it’s a great passion to include in your travels as well.
Amy from GoGreenTravelGreen writes down some great tips of appreciating nature for those of you travelling with kids. I remember my parents always taking me out there too and have loved it ever since. And while you’re there, you might also want to read her
Sarah writes on BootnAll about her experience with travelling with her partner. Even with them both having different travel philosophies, they’ve found a way to make travel together work. Some great tips for you too!
I don’t know how I stumbled upon the stories of Theodora and her son (Escape Artistes), but I know I’m loving their stories about starting a life in China. It’s such a culture shock and Theodora’s stories really pull you into her world. Keep following them!
I want to… See Art and Design
Tom Warburton writes a guest post on Bald Hiker about the markets in Gambia. The post features stunning photos, mostly portraits. He brought a photo printer with him, so as soon as word got out, he gathered a big (BIG) crowd and had the best models you could wish for as a photographer.
Do you like to make music on your travels? Jenny and Lars from Tour in Tune do, but as they’re travelling on bike they are limited in what they can take. Read about their mission to find a small guitar in Mexico.
