The Longest Way Home - travel blog
REVIEWED BY: Ms. Cairo
MY RECOMMENDATION: YES
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: The Longest Way Home
WEB ADDRESS: http://www.thelongestwayhome.com/blog/
BLOG DESCRIPTION: An overland journey around the world, now in its 5th year. From a rough upbringing this is the fascinating story of a guy breaking travel boundaries and pushing his limits to find something many are looking for. A place that truly feels like home.
Includes stories about people most tourists never get to see nor meet, stunning photography and a great ongoing real life travel journal from a remarkable journey.
This inspirational travel blog contains an overland journal from travels through Europe to Iran and Pakistan during emergency rule. Across India and high into the mountains of Nepal; before emerging into the riots of Lhasa in Tibet and going overland across China.
Now in Asia this live and current journey continues with an attempt at living in The Philippines. How easy is it to live on beautiful island? The answers informative, surprising; and things are about to change dramatically on this incredible quest ...
MY REVIEW: I absolutely recommend this blog. It's not my idea of travel - I prefer to be a tourist and travel the well-trod tourist byways. This author gets into the heart and soul of the countries he visits - at the moment he's in the Philippines.
Check it out.
