Let’s face it, I’m addicted to traveling the world and experiencing as many new places as I can. I’m addicted to transitions, to change, to compelling stories told over beer…well maybe its the beer I’m addicted to. Amazingly there is a whole group of travel bloggers who feel the same way about world travel (and hopefully about beer too). A few months back many of you probably noticed that I was accepted into Lonely Planet’s Blogsherpa Program where everything I write is syndicated on the Lonely Planet’s website. Very cool, right?
What’s even better than being syndicated on Lonely Planet? Getting to know all the other bloggers who have been accepted. Recently we have begun to exercise our collective creativity and have come together on a number of projects, including a possible anthology of our travel stories and a photo book (don’t worry you’ll hear more about these later).
This week our creative and talented group of world travelers launched a World Travel Squidoo lens (a website that features all the world travel articles that we write in one place). Any traveler, the active or the armchair type, can sit back (maybe with a beer?) and see different parts of the world through the eyes of some of the web’s top travel bloggers.
Lonely Planet has selected the cream of the travel blogger crop to take part in their blogsherpa Beta program. All of the bloggers below syndicate their content live to the Lonely Planet website so that you can view their articles by location as you research travel destinations. The LP bloggers have banded together to bring you a complete, up to date view of the world by syndicating their content live to this squidoo lens. Sit back and take a trip.
Stop by and check out the collective musings of some incredibly talented travelers who love sharing their world with others. You’re guaranteed to find something new each time you visit the Lonely Planet Blogger’s World Travel lens. Oh and a tweet, e-mail or just an old fashioned verbal recommendation to your friends would be greatly appreciated.
