Travel Blog Discovery: That Backpacker

[ 5 ] July 17, 2011 |

These day’s I don’t get a lot of time to read blogs and when I do I tend to stick to the few that tell really great stories that capture my imagination, make me laugh, remind me of my own similar experience or teach me something.  Everyday the travel blogging world is being saturated with more and more blogs but hidden amongst the mass is a series of very talented writers and story tellers.  This series Travel Blog Discovery will be unearthing some of these new talents in blogging and showcasing three of their articles I really enjoyed reading.

Without further ado I’ll introduce you to the very first Travel Blog Discovery, That Backpacker


Born in Canada and raised in Argentina, this backpacker can often be found exploring some remote region of the world. Audrey’s travels have taken her through 3 continents, but it is the remote villages of Latin America that hold a special place in her heart. A firm believer in volunteering abroad, Audrey hopes to inspire travelers to step off the beaten path and get involved in local communities.



London is Flirting With Me

London was the first city I visited overseas by myself and such it holds a special place in the travel section of my heart (sorry but London was asking me to be corny!)  I loved this post because it was so honest and so relatable.  It takes you through Audrey’s journey from her first trip to London that left her with less than an affectionate view of the city to four years later when again she is in London but this time she discovers there is a whole side of London to love!

Cheating Death Thrice in One Night

When I went on my first trip to Thailand one of my biggest fears was taking a ride in a Tuk Tuk, they’re just so rickety and dangerous!  Luckily for my nerves all my trips in Tuk Tuks since have been completely uneventful.  But Audrey wasn’t so lucky! In this post Audrey re-tells the story of 30 minutes in a rickshaw in India and boy was it an adrenaline packed 30minutes!  You will not beleive all the things that could go wrong in under an hour!…

Surviving The Louvre

Normally I tend not to read any ‘travel guides’ on blogs unless I specifically need that information, why? Because they bore me, they generally don’t tell a story or contain enough personal anecdotes that will keep me engaged enough to stay and read the entire post and possibly actually learn something!  What Audrey has done in this post is create an engaging and practical guide with a hint of humor, packed full of anecdotes that give you tips on Surviving the Louvre. I’ve got to say having done the Louvre myself and emerging from it only just alive I can safely say this is a post that anyone intending to visit the Louvre needs to read!

Stay tuned for the next installment of Travel Blog Discovery! I’m not promising every week or even every two weeks but I am promising to bring you a new discovery the moment I discover someone amazing!
