    http://www.everything-everywhere.com Gary (the writer) takes me to places all over the world that I’ve never heard of and would never experience otherwise. No other travel blog engages me like this one, and it’s the first site I check every morning.

  16. DJ Says:

    I humbly would like to nominate my own blog –

    I’m about two years into what is supposed to be a four year trip that has so far taken me from the Middle East, from top to bottom in Africa, and currently through the Indian Sub-continent.

    I think my writing has improved over the course of the blog, and for about seven months had a monthly column in a Canadian newspaper, the Halifax Daily News (now defunct. Not my fault!)

    Thank you.
