I love road trips and travel blogs. We have a family blog that we started a few years ago, adding new daily posts for summer vacations with the kids and other trips. A blog is a great way to combine text and photos to remember a trip, with the flexibility to keep it for yourself or share it on social media.
For the 6th day of the 12 days of microblogging series, we wanted to highlight 2 travel blogs using Micro.blog. Mary Hatfield writes on her microblog with incredible photos of trips across the United States and even to Antarctica:
When we woke up this morning we were in the Neumayers Channel (below Anvers) located on the western side of Wiki Island ready to take the zodiacs onshore. The weather was quite perfect this morning and it was our turn […] We walked across the fresh blanket of snow to the Damoy Hut, which was built in 1975 and kept in use until 1995. It has now been restored to its original form and is used as a museum. The land here was an airstrip that enabled personnel and stores arriving by ship to be flown on to Rothera Station in early summer when sea ice prevents dirt access to the station by ship
Arin Mearig kept a daily blog for a 3-month trip to Switzerland, posting photos every day with captions for people she’s met and places she’s visited. From day 34:
quick recap - left the house at 5am, went to 4 cities, hitchhiked for the first time, went on buses, trains, cable cars, and a funicular, ate a delicious burger, saw some of the greatest views ever, and just walked in the door at 10:45pm
I’m inspired by these blogs to write more while traveling. Consider capturing some of your next trip on an existing blog or new microblog.
