Travel Blog of the Day: Drop Me Anywhere
The internet is laden with blogs about travel. You don’t have time to read them all, you have to get out there and do yard work for the first time this year. This column will allow you to sift through the schlock and get back to mowing and blowing! Check us out on twitter at #travelblogoftheday.
Most travel that anyone does begin with a planning stage. It may not be terribly elaborate, but there is still a, “hey I want to go here, and how much is the airfare?” Well not today. Our blogger today has a ton of faith. So much faith in fact that she leaves the planning and the destination up to her loyal readers. I am getting scared just thinking about it.
Carole Rosenblat has been in the travel business for the last 20 years. She has so much experience that she has even lectured on the subject. However, the part of traveling that she hates the most is the planning.
So she just doesn’t do it.
This blog, one of three that she has started, is the result of that. Carole actually polls her readers, giving them a theme and some parameters each time, to find out where she is going to go next. Normally within two weeks of the close of the poll, she will be on her way, documenting her journey, experiences and even charting her spending so you have an idea of what it would cost to travel by the seat of your pants.
So what you’re getting here is a truly interactive blog written by a real writer who is having the time of her life doing what you tell her to do. She has her posts broken down by destination and gives you the lowdown on cuisine, activities, events, and lodgings.
The real story about Carole is that she is a true philanthropist. She supports no less than six different organizations and makes sure to give at least one day of each trip to a different charity every where she goes. Then she blogs about it at one of her other sites – Rebel with a Cause.
So check her out when you get a chance, vote on Carole’s next destination and then check back in to see how she did at the place that you sent her to. Chances are, even with very little planning, the experience is going to be awesome.
