Hoping someone here can help me out...

I'm really in need of reading something good! I need to live a little through someone else till I canget travelling again and well, I need some tips on some good travel blogs. Looking especially for something that perhaps is just on the go.

I've searched around aimlessly looking at blogs and there just seem to be so many badly written, dull as hell, "for friends and family" crap out there that finding something worth actually reading is like finding a needle in a haystack..

So I ask you, good peeople of BnA...please, oh please, point me in teh direction of something good that can keep me entertained!!!

I've been looking for this too. I need something to read at work when I want to look like I'm working!

I haven't been up on my reading so much lately, but one blog I like is Daniel Wallace's Suitcasing. Daniel started out with a BNA blog years ago. Tracked his trip through China, I believe. That's a separate blog (also worth reading, and linked on his current blog).

He ended up settling in Taiwan, and has recently moved to Syria. He's not one of these verbal diarrhea types who posts just to post. He'll give you maybe one or two posts per week. But he's usually good and thought-provoking. He's also got tons of links on his site (all of which look promising -- but I've barely begun to delve into them).
