Blogs to enhance your travels

I've come late to this whole blogging thing - I'm of the generation that can still remember when computers took up a whole room. So I decided to take a peep at what other travel bloggers might be up to and shamelessly steal their best ideas to improve my own posts.

Being nothing if not methodical I started off with a few blogs, checked out their blog lists, then checked out their blog lists, then.... you get the picture. The whole process was pretty tedious to tell you the truth and once I got going the lists seemed never-ending.

But then it dawned on me that it could be fun to use these blogs like a friendly resident who can guide you on their home turf, and take you to the places most tourists would miss. So now I've spent hours wading through all those blogs and hand-picked this list of my favorites to help us all when we go travelling.

This post has now moved to my new travel blog at Heatheronhertravels.com
