Hi! I'm the founder and editor of the UK based Europe a la Carte blog. I'm open to any suggestions from other travel bloggers about how we can work together to help promote our blogs.
I believe that there's a lot be gained through cooperation.

Clean, refreshed and ready for a full evening I lazily drifted from my room to the common area after a hearty nap. There, I checked my e-mail, chatted with the other hostel goers and then decided to set out for a snack. After a leisurely walk exploring the narrow, winding streets around the hostel I eventually made my way back to my favorite greasy spoon. Just up the alleyway and around the corner from the hostel...the place was a small… Continue

I want different voices for my blog and have failed recruiting guest bloggers, what is the best approach to ensure I attract guest bloggers? Have used www.wiwih.com and haven't been lucky thus far.

Where do you live?
I'm a travel journalist.
City you spend the most time in?
Okay, that makes sense. Bad question. So where do you travel to the most often?
I love New York. Everyone should visit New York at least once in their lifetime, especially… Continue

While perusing YouTube, Savvy Navigator came across this Boeing promo video for the next generation 747, the 747-8. It sure looks like Boeing’s trying desperately to compete with the inflight amenities of the Airbus A-380.
to take a look!

I've really enjoyed reading your blog. I thought I'd add a different perspective...what it's like to be the guy who is dating a flight attendant. ALL red-blooded American men dreamed for years of dating a flight attendant. My turn finally came and I was in awe. I then was rather surprised that the glamorous life we were led to believe didn't really exist. I found flight attendants have one of the toughest lives out there, and to this day I don't understand how… Continue

I'm going to kick off my first blog post with by sharing a adventure trip we took this past summer. We traveled to Wrangell, Alaska on Alaska Airlines for a multi-part adventure package with guides Jim & Wilma Leslie at Alaska Waters.
We took off from Wrangell to see the Bears of Anan! AnAn is one of Alaska’s hidden gems, which offers unparalleled bear viewing opportunities extremely unique from any other part of Alaska. Before I go on about this corner of… Continue

Well the air is hot and I am definitely as stale as the Kelsey’s meal they tried to fool me into eating on the flight over but I could care less because this trip is now on. We made it and our feet were on the ground in Madrid Spain. We collect our thingsfor under and above our seats and slowly make our way out of the Airbus. As we made it out onto the jetway it got even hotter with the kind of dry heat that you only find in the desert. I know it may… Continue

This is the story of a journey Valentine took with his brother from Kunming in China to Derge in Eastern Tibet, now part of China. Valentine was recently my guest in Bristol through Hospitality Club
and as you may gather, I never let my guests go without sharing a travel tale or two.
Valentine is half Russian,… Continue

If anyone knows how gross a hotel room is it's a flight attendant. Look what my sister found in a popular casino hotel in Louisiana. Now I've seen a few disgusting things in my life, but this takes the cake. Because that inch of dust covering the alarm clock didn't accumulate in one stay. That took time. Too much time. I know house cleaners don't always clean things that appear to be clean to unknowing guests, but how could they overlook…

Location is not yet confirmed as I need to research possible locations. Living ooop North, has it's problems when organising an event in London, so, if any kind soul… Continue

I am so very thankful to Juli Huang and Matador Travel for an article about travel health and influenza, featuring me! Juli did an awesome job on the article, making "routine" stuff for me, very interesting and useful to travelers and their health!
I'd like to think that this is what this site is about, meeting new people and exchanging information. The people I have been in contact with have been amazing and I am very proud to be a member of the travel blog community!… Continue

Normally people write a list of about 10, but over the years my list has grown and I want to share it with you.
1. That you can't get a coffee to go in most places. You must stand at the bar or sit at a table and enjoy your coffee. What a novel idea enoying the moment. Could you imagine Starbucks with no paper cups? I might go back.
2. The smell of garlic cooking at 7am while I walk to the Blu Bar for my first caffe of the day.
3. The way Italians adore… Continue

What I found most useful about the World Travel Market in November, were the free seminars I attended on subjects that were relevant to my blog. If you couldn't make it to London, don't worry, the seminars are now available on line through video, audio and powerpoint presentations… Continue

I do most of my travel writing for the online magazine, Suite101.com. I'm also an editor there.
It's fun and I've no complaints but because the articles there are written in a certain style - short, single focus, emphasis on white hat SEO (lots of keywords and very few, if any, metaphors) - I've grown accustomed to "just the facts, ma'am" writing.
In my personal reading, however, I have been swept away lately by Paul Theroux's book on Oceania from about 10 years ago. This… Continue
