I spent July settling into my new apartment in Revere, MA, watching Orange is the New Black, and attempting to take my writing career seriously. The rumors are true: freelancing isn’t easy.
The one trip I took in July was to a lakeside cabin in New Hampshire where I spent a few days with some of my oldest friends.
What were you up to last month? Did you happen to read any of these awesome travel articles?
Shannon O’Donnell of A Little Adrift shares with Vagabondish readers: 5 Ways to Connect More Deeply on Your Travels. Her advice is intelligent and culturally sensitive, and, as someone who keeps a journal in addition to her blog, I particularly liked suggestion #5.
Stephanie Yoder of Twenty-Something Travel often writes concise, informative travel articles, so, it was interesting to read her piece on Boston’s North End, which has a more narrative arc and focuses on her Italian heritage.
Dalene and Pete Heck of Hecktic Travels have spent the last 5 weeks in Poland, and I’ve been adoring all of their content, but this post on milk bars was especially good. I agree with Dalene, this is a Polish food experience that’s not to be missed.
The New York Times ran a much-shared-amongst-travel-bloggers story, which serves as an excellent primer to this industry. If you’re at all interested in what travel bloggers do or how they make a living, you should definitely read this article.
And, finally, while I usually try to keep the links in these round-ups limited to current content, I had never seen this video by Black Sheep Films before, and decided to throw it into the mix. It’s not specifically travel-related, but has some lovely shots of Buenos Aires. Plus, the concept is sort of surreal and absurdist. Just watch.
