I enjoy reading all kind of blogs and, thanks to my iPad, I do spend a lot of time in cafes reading random blogs. However, in the last few months I started following a few of them on a regular basis and I thought you should know about these blogs too! That should also give you a sense of what my interests – other than coffee – are… Enjoy!
This blog is written by a friend that I am slowly getting to know better through her posts. If you like travels, nice photos, beautiful recipes and the occasional life advice, this blog is for you. I really enjoyed working with Emily in a previous life and her “joie de vivre” is very present throughout her blog.
There are many travel blogs out there but Cat’s blog caught my attention for at least two reasons: 1) she is doing what I wish I had done when I was 25; and 2) she is traveling to places I have been or I really want to go.
Just like Curious Cat on the Run, Marina is from Australia. She now lives in Brooklyn and I never stop being amazed by her beautiful photos of New York.
Everything that makes life better seems to have a place on this blog, including food, music and travel. And the blogger has a real talent to communicate her passions.
Jenny blogs about “past, current and future travels”. She has already been to some 45 countries, although her blog seems to focus mostly on Central America (at least for now). Jenny is from Göteborg in Sweden. She was kind enough to offer to recommend some nice cafés when I make it to her city!
Don’t get fooled by the title. This blog is full of life! Jacqueline is perfectly healthy, and she started her experiment–choosing life for life’s sake. Instead of doing “all the things she always wanted to do in an escalating crescendo previewing an ultimate finale”, she is taking 6 months at a time and goes for it. Inspiring!
Sarah has a very inspiring blog about balancing her priorities in life: family and travel. After a “short” interlude Sarah is hitting the road again, sharing her adventures, including the preparation for Nepal in April 2012.
There are many things in Elena’s blog that make me coming back on a regular basis, but the one that I appreciate the most is freedom. If I ever publish a dictionary, I will put Elena’s photo next to “freedom”.
9- Me & Beirut
The woman behind this blog says: “I looove fashion, magazines, newspapers, CAFÉS, museums, biscuits and travelling!”… well, that is quite a bit to keep me interested. And of course, she lives in Beirut, a place where I’d love to go back!
I never get tired of good blogs from Beirut. For me, it all started with her post on Beiteddine. So you can expect to get more than Beirut. From Baalbeck to Tyre, this is a nice virtual trip to Lebanon.
11- Belgrade Streets
It is always nice to meet another expat who fell in love with the White City. Here you can see some of the best photos of Beograd. I spend a lot of time on this blog when I feel “homesick”!
