I’ve recently begun following The Backpackers, a blog published via the Sydney Morning Herald. It’s definitely good for a giggle. For example, check out the most recent posts:
The Bug: This entry addresses how to spot those bitten by the travel bug. It’s quite charming.
Meet locals, get laid: This entry talks about CouchSurfing, “a worldwide network for making connections between travelers and the local communities they visit.” Apparently for the singletons out there, it’s a good way to… hm… meet a mate.
The Heathrow Spread: Here the blogger talks about visiting the UK and how “it’s usually only the diet conscious among us who manage to return from there without adding a few pounds to our personal carry-on.”
