The “Best of” for Week 1
Every week we’ll be gathering some of our favorite posts from the 30 Days of Indie Travel Project. The submissions this past week have been fantastic, and we’re excited and ecstatic to see all the enthusiasm. Without further ado, here are some of our favorite posts from the first 6 days of the Indie 30 Project.
- Katie from Katie Going Global had some massive goals for 2011 and 2012. Find out how her life has changed in this past year because of travel.
- Brooke, who writes for the site Roots and Wings, talks about her travel goals for this past year and moving forward in 2012.
- Jade of Vagabond 3 looks within herself to find the balance between her multiple travel personalities.
- In one of the most honest posts I’ve read so far, Christina of She Wears Short Shorts talks about how travel not only changed her life, but saved it.
- Erin combines music and travel often when on the road, but a recent trip to Ireland tops her list of musical travel memories.
- Mary reflects on the mistake of not traveling when she had the chance. Regret of not traveling seemed to be a key theme in this prompt.
- Kirstie and Stewart’s family, along with a local, tried to one up each other in the kindness department while at a bus stop in Latvia.
- Sometimes kindness comes when you’re at your lowest point. After being robbed in Barcelona, the folks at Spark Punk found kindness from all over the place.
- Hitchhiking across Patagonia should certainly qualify as a scary travel endeavor.
- Fear comes along quite often when you’re a newbie traveler, as Jessica found out during her solo travels in Paris.
30 Days of Indie Travel Project: How to Participate
We’re inviting bloggers from around the world (that means you, too!) to join us in a daily blogging effort designed to reflect on how our travel experiences over the last year – or whenever – have shaped us and our view of the world. Bloggers can follow the prompts as strictly or loosely as they like, interpreting them in various ways and responding via text, photos or video posted on their own blogs.
We’ll share some of our favorites via Twitter and Facebook throughout November, as well as a round-up article at the end of the month, so if you’re playing along make sure to let us know – use the #indie30 hashtag on Twitter, and link to the 30 Days of Indie Travel page in your post so we’ll be able to find it.
