Welcome to this week’s installment of The Friday Five, featuring five of my favorite travel blog posts for you to check out! Think of it as a great way to introduce you to some awesome new bloggers who are having some truly incredible adventures! Here are my picks for this week:
They say Karma can be a bitch, right? Well that seems to be the very lesson that Wes of Johnny Vagabond learned when his desperation for a beer drove him to violate religious traditions. Told in his usual riveting storytelling, Wes also learns that monkeys are the devil, a sentiment I can wholeheartedly agree with! A great read!
Remember that revolution Egypt had couple of months ago? I know, I know, a lot has happened since then, but its epicenter was Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Images of the hordes of protestors camped out there surrounded by troops who may or may not have been on their side are seared into recent memory. But what’s Tahrir Square like now? Leslie from Downtown Traveler found out.
If someone has told you that you’ve had your traveling fun and it’s time to get a “real” job, raise your hand! I think every traveler has experienced this in some way or another. Society just doesn’t understand those who do not wish to subscribe to societal norms of a 9-5 job. Teresa from Art of Backpacking tackles these very issues as she prepares to move to Europe.
Unless you were living under a rock, you probably heard that there was a little wedidng in London last Friday. Just a small, tiny ceremony at Westminster Abby between Prince William, 2nd in line to the British throne wed his longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton in a lavish ceremony. While we all watched the extravaganza on TV, Chris, The Aussie Nomad, saw it fold out live on the streets of London and has some awesome photos to prove it!
