If you have been reading the blog in the past year, you might remember a little link up I helped host called Travel Tuesday. I’m not exactly sure how I first stumbled upon the link up back in my early blogging days, but I distinctively remember that it was the first place I found other blogs and bloggers that I felt like I had something in common with.
Well, for one reason or another the link up is coming to an end this week and the current hosts asked for former hosts and participants to share their favourite memories/blog posts/bloggers as one last hurrah. I can’t list all of the blogs that I’ve found through this link up, but it’s safe to say it’s the majority of my “Expat/Travel Blogs” tab on Bloglovin’. I even met up with one of them, Christine, while I was home for the holidays.
I feel like my list of places I want to go has increased ten fold since I started linking up with Travel Tuesday almost two years ago. To name just a few…
I didn’t know a single thing about Slovenia before I discovered Isabel’s blog, and now I’m dying to go.
Kaelene has me itching to go to Iceland and I am frequently showing Travis her pictures and now he’s on board too.
Marcella had me wishing my parents were still in London and now has me wanting to get back to South America with her posts on Chile.
There are SO many more wonderful bloggers that I didn’t mention too, and luckily you can still find them on a different day of the week. Former co-hosts Marcella, Lauren, Van and Isabel started the new Wanderful Wednesday link up a few weeks ago and you can find a lot of familiar travel Tuesday participants over there.
Before I sign off I figured I would share some of my favourite Travel Tuesday posts that bring back such fond memories of all the travel we have done in the past two years…
I had to include this post because it was the first one I ever linked up and also because it still brings a lot of visitors to my neck of the woods. The photography is pretty sketchy as we had literally just gotten our camera and were a little over zealous with the filters, but it holds a soft spot.
I’m so glad that I randomly stumbled upon this link up almost two years ago and got connected with such a great community of bloggers. I often tell Travis, “oh I know someone who lives/has been there” and then he soon realizes I’m just talking about another blogger I’ve never actually met. But in all seriousness, it really is one of my favourite things about blogging and what motivates me to keep showing up here and writing. So farewell Travel Tuesday, but hello Wanderful Wednesday and all the new people we will get to “meet” and places we will get to (virtually) explore!
