I love the angle on this because some people might be heading here specifically to explore Gaudi works - I know a few people like this. I think the key here is specificty.
It was very eye opening and I can relate to almost all of it, my only comment is it's length but how can one summarize all that into a shorter post?
This is perfect! I am a big fan of well thought out satire.Need to see more of this type of article it stands out from the generic stuff.
I liked this article because it gives some very basic and concise advice on finding stories all around us.Perhaps more bloggers and writers could do this - then we would have tons more content! :-)
Wasn't sure about what category to place it under though?
Great article! Like the way he held your attention until you found out what the mistake was and then you keep reading to find out what happened - that's a good story in my opinion.
It's nice because it reads like a story - grabs you straight away.
I enjoy photo essays because sometimes it is nice to relax and enjoy the images without having to read too much. Would love to go there.
The photos are magnificent and make the article worthwhile.
This article interested me because of the argument he makes about guidebooks being on their way out? This could be a interesting topic and would create plenty discussion? I personally agree that there is fantastic content out there on the internet - but sometimes when you are walking around in a city isn't it nicer to take out your guidebook rather than boot up your laptop?
Not just because it was a story of mine but because I was given a lot of praise for it and I still think it is a descriptive account of 6 hours in Singapore? I like pieces that don't always read like a guidebook.
Thanks Sonja - I found it quite extraordinary.
Astonishing images - yet such an insight into the different lives led all over the world.
Stunning images - makes me want to visit all those places? Don't you agree?
This is so true - I felt all of these things after I travelled! Especially patience. What a great insightful piece.
Matt - great article because this is exactly the type of thing you come across in South Africa all the time. Full of so much diversity and character.
Different topic for a travel article - but definitely an interesting one.
I love taking photos of food when I travel in fact it is one of the most important aspects of my journey memories. Because I love food and everything that it shares about culture and place. Great tips about flash because this is usually where I mess up. I have never experienced someone complaining about having photos taken of the food...but then again I rarely visit fancy establishments.
great article - it reads like a story and has an aspect of humour. Thisalways tops my list of content.
It is a drawback to the article I agree and nearly didn't include it but the other pictures were just too lovely not to share. I would be interested to read more articles about Uluru? I'll do some searching.
A beautifully written piece but the title is highly misleading but once I started reading was enthralled.
These look great and would no doubt provide a great travel story!
It may seem a little abstract at first but I posted this for two reasons. One it is so beautifully representative of the South Africa countryside in this area. Two as I scroll down the pictures it reads exactly like a story and I find myself filling in the words to the pictures. An excellent photo essay in my opinion.
If you are ever in Cape Town, South Africa - read this blog this will ensure you experience the full range of South African food talent and culture. Makes my mouth water.
absolutely magnificent I couldn't move in case I case I missed something. I'm booking my ticket to South America as I write. well done.
I love the long road. But sometimes it's just not possible.
Concise and easy to follow. Good advice too.
Except for the fact that I'm hungry now, it is great to get something like this out before a festival so people can get the most of it.
I had to post this because I am always so pleased to find humour out there in travel writing. And I really did laugh out loud at this ostrich pillow. Some people take travelling way too seriously and this article highlights the fact that we need to experience travel not try and make it clinical or over-organised.
