Since I have been moving around so much the last 15 months, I haven't kept abreast of blog awards and incoming links to this site, however I was happy to see my blog listed amongst the 100 Best Travel Journal Blogs on Travel Answer Man this past Friday.
GoBackpacking was listed under the Advice section, which fits it perfectly as I always wanted this site to be a way to help encourage and support others interested in traveling abroad.
I recommend checking out the list, as it didn't take me long to find a new blog to start reading – Corporate American Runaway – about a mid-thirties career woman who left her IT job in New York City to travel around the world for a year, and then decided to stay in Vietnam and teach English while working on her photography and writing. Hmmm…sounds familiar! I love the before and after pages she posted about herself. The transformation you see between the pictures and what she writes is something special! Something I know I too have experienced, but have yet to fully realize.
And her blog design is already giving me A LOT of ideas for the redesign of this site!
