A 1000 Voices (well, over 370.)

I’ve been hopping over at one of my other blogs, the Perceptive Travel Blog, where I’m a co-author.

Dynamic Australian blogger Darren Rowse, who runs the ProBlogger site, has a Group Writing Project going on — I’m one of , oh, over 370 submissions so far on the topic “Top 5.” It can be “Top 5” of anything, which is great because that means an enormous variety of blogs can participate. 

My own post was Top Five Travel Blogs You Gotta Read, featuring the Perrin Post by Conde Nast Traveler magazine’s Consumer Travel Editor Wendy Perrin, hilarious travel writer Leif Pettersen’s Killing Batteries, Budget Travel Online‘s useful blog  This Just In…., New Zealand writer Liz Lewis’ My year of getting published and three blogs at CHOW, the online food magazine. 

For Day One and Day Two of the Project, I looked for posts that were travel-related, but since there were so many interesting ones, I got rather distracted.  For your reading pleasure, here are my faves:
