When you’re wanderlust like me, you spend a lot of time trawling the interwebs for travel related reading material. I’ve recently found a blog called I’m a traveller not a tourist and I’m addicted to it.

The posts are filled with cute infographics like this one.



And this. I’ve only been to 10 of these attractions. Clearly I nearly to spend more time exploring the world!


And relatedly, there’s a few other great travel posts I’ve read lately. Including:

– This piece on travelling alone. I know it’s easy to say this when you’re in a comfortable relationship and therefore have a built in travel partner, but I really think I could travel alone quite easily. It’s certainly a fun thing to do with other people but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s easier than being by yourself!

These travel tips for Japanese people who visit the USA made me laugh. I don’t think we realise how strange our everyday behaviour is until we see it through the eyes of others.

– These NYC travel tips also made me laugh. Anyone who has ever lived in a city will be able to relate to these!

– And then there’s this fab post! This guy lists 20 things he learnt while travelling. My favourite is him pointing out that nobody but Americans care about America.

And now it’s time to head to TripAdvisor so I can start planning my next adventure…..

  1. I have to say I have no real desire to travel. Anywhere! (I’m off to Sydney for 2 days next week and am spending the minimal time possible there – though that’s also for financial reasons!) I worked overseas for a bit and did a little travel then and travelled for work, so perhaps that left me a bit #meh about travelling. However, I’ve not been to many non-developing countries and would like to go to Italy one day.

    1. You’ve obviously travelled yourself out! I can’t imagine that but I think living overseas would be something that would eventually make me feel happy to just be home!
