Earlier this week, I nominated some of my favourite blog posts of 2013… for a HostelWorld Travel Story Award. Not quite big-headed enough to choose only from an assortment of my own posts, I think I broke some unspoken rule by actually nominating other people. Read on for the dazzling content I trawled my memory banks for. They will all be appearing again soon on my new ‘Recommended’ page, along with many other things.
If you could travel in one month of the year forever more, which month would you pick? My first thoughts jumped to April, when I was asked to take part in The Ultimate Year-Round Travel Guide… for the British Airways ‘High Life’ blog. In this collaborative series, twelve top bloggers will each talk about travel for a specific month of the year.
Recently, a few travel bloggers and I made a Youtube video full of great travel photography tips for beginners. Using Google Plus, we recorded a live streaming ‘Hangout On Air’ on the subject of travel photography; what camera to buy, what camera equipment is best for backpacking, and how to take the best photos in different situations.
In this episode of Room For Travel…, your hosts are Alexander Koval from Out-n-About.de, Ash Clark from TheMostAlive.com, Flavio Alagia from NonSoloTuristi.it, and myself - Peter Parkorr, from Travel Unmasked.
Dear lovely Travel Unmasked subscribers!
Welcome back, and a note of thanks.
Before I explain what I mean by ‘welcome back’, a quick thank you from here in Sicily. A thank you for letting little old me into that most private of virtual places, your personal inbox. For allowing me to send you my stories, photos and videos – from Europe, from Asia, and from the lands Down Under soon as well;
Today I am very pleased to reveal to you, exclusively, an exciting new concept in travel blogging, photography, and indeed the internet.
Without further ado,
*drum roll please*
…the year 2012!…
Yes, you may have heard of it, but you’ve almost certainly seen nothing of it from me. Just over a year ago I started my first blog, but I didn’t write much about travel or publish many photo’s, as I was too occupied with the act of travelling itself.
