Interesting Travel Blogs

I have recently come across a couple of blogs I enjoyed, and thought you might too. The first is, about the land-based travels of a former attorney from Arkansas (no, not Hilary or Bill.) He has been on the road since 2008, visiting as many places as he can reach with minimal air and sea travel. He is a big fan of rail travel, and organized a rail travel challenge for bloggers. I'm just getting into this blog, whose content seems somewhat scattered, but I am looking forward to reading more.
Another good choice if you travel alone might be, written by a woman from Toronto who is a former business owner. After suffering a personal loss she decided to pursue one of her passions, solo travel. The site contains a number of useful tips, such as starting slowly if you are new to lone travel. In other words, plan a weekend trip to somewhere close by rather than a trek on the Trans-Siberian Railway. After the weekend, go somewhere on your own for a week, then for two weeks, etc. And to minimize culture shock, concentrate on places where you can speak the language. She also includes 30 ways to minimize costs when travelling solo, an important topic since travelling alone does tend to cost more.
