Travel Bloggers Share The Love @Ryanbiddulph @The_Holidaze – I Still Recall His Experience In The Indonesian Prison

travel I’m sure that the blogging community, particularly travel blogging is most definitely a great one to be part of.

We continue to learn from one another every single day.

Quite crowded at times but that only means this varied range of wisdom and insight. He is a fab guy to follow as long as his adventures are so freaking epic. Click this link: 100. Wow TG thanks very much for linking in to my eBook and for mentioning me. It is thanks again for noting me, Know what guys, I feel humbled. Derek is the Real Deal. Did you hear of something like that before? I still recall his experience in the Indonesian prison. Maybe I’ve just been lucky and mostly only connect with the good guys. Maybe keeping a low exposure has insulated me from bad experiences? Seriously. Your comments about some bad people in the blogging world is a theme that is being coming out from loads of my blogging friends since publishing this article.

travel Apart from a small number of unpleasant emails my overall experiences was positive. Mind you I’ve never done a fam trip and have so far only met bloggers behind 3 sites so far. That’s weird. Both guys, and you, have always been very generous. Actually, So there’re some absolute stinkers out there By the way I also have a tribe of fam. I’ve read quite plenty of his stuff and yes, I’m quite sure I know Derek. Peace. I didn’t realise that it was him that got locked up in Indonesia though, Actually I knew the story but hadn’t made the connection. I opened your email post after reading one of Ryan’s coincidentally. Where the heck did all those Twitter people come from? Oftentimes thank you and keep up the great work.

travel To be nominated by someone as well connected and as inspirational as your good self is something special. It means a lot to me that you selected me as someone to follow. There’re that’s really frustrating since I try to reply but can’t since I don’t have their correct details. I’ve loaded up lots of his books onto my kindle and so far have only managed to read about a couple of them so far. Basically, for nearly 3 years solid I was consistently posting at least 2 blogging articles a week, nearly any week, 51 weeks a year. I must admit that I’ve struggled of late time wise. Known we both benefitted. Filed Under. Nevertheless, would never deter me as long as a number of you fellow bloggers are amazing. Well I’d interviewed Derek and published it as far back as December You’ll find it At the time of publishing the interview did pretty well.

I’ll will also soon be beginning the Shaun T’s T25 set of exercise DVDs.

Limited time means that I can’t help everyone, even genuine requests.

As I found out when I interviewed him. This p guy is however still very well connected and very knowledgeable about living the dream, blogging and travel. Without any obvious explanation the interview became a hot topic. Essentially, the site overall on any given day can have heaps of interviews being popular, however any individual interview should struggle to get beyond 200 reads a day if it was not an interview publish day, that Sundays are not. Eventually, I ok some downtime from my online presence here and worked in the background and on other projects. Besides, I’ve completed Insanity a few times before so I’m mentally, albeit maybe not physically ready for the challenge. Okay we all travel the globe but we’ve never actually met face to face. Make sure you leave a comment about it in the comment box. That aside I just look for to say how wonderful lots of are a waste of time to be honest.

Therefore this really was karma coming home to roost for both of us.

As you know, To be honest I run a second travel website which is called Travel Blogger Interviews. On p of this, ryan is as a matter of fact very kind and a p guy. Now Derek is a straight talking, honest guy who will tell you how Undoubtedly it’s. Plus Derek couldn’t think of anything he has done recently to have created a sudden surge in his interest to others. As far I’m concerned this was true karma working. For a start it includes the fantastic travel writers Nick and Dariece of -you must know that site? There are also some other great names in the blogging world like Catherine Holt, Danny Flood, Adrienne Smith, Matthew Woodward plus ofcourse Kelli Cooper. It might be interesting but I’m looking forward to it. I can certainly learn a thing or two from him on his blogging skills. You can see why my connection with Derek rose up again so prominently if you look at our quick twitter chat with each other yesterday.

So a well received published interview receives a few hundred views a day.

He’s been blogging a lot longer than I have.

For some reason yesterday, more than 10 months after first publishing his interview it seemed to have a mini viral moment. Some ‘e mail’ messages however are great and I like to look for to talk about is Derek Freal of The HoliDaze. It’s a well my point being that these have become online buddies and we support one another. I’m sure you heard about this. One tweet landed him behind bars. Now Derek is a p guy and from time to time I’ve exchanged emails and tweets with him. Eventually, whilst I don’t have time to read travel blogs as much as I used to, By the way I am still active to some degree in the background. The first guy I look for to tell you about is Ryan Biddulph. Actually, plenty of visitors came to my site and of that numerous people clicked through to Derek’s site So there’re some, certainly less than 10percentage, maybe less than 5percentage who for should hope.

He’s also had some pretty scary travel adventures including planning to jail all because of a single tweet!

Since late July I announced that I was going on holiday. Neither I could define the source of the chain of tweets, nor Derek Then, I know So there’re loads of different blogging communities out there but I feel like the travel blogging community is among the most willing to help their fellow bloggers. Also, I’ve never met another travel blogger who wasn’t willing to help Whether assistance with more specific situations,, or it be via sharing, commenting, conversations that spark inspiration, general blogging advice, even tech help.

travel Instead, a lot of are outsourcing noncore business functions to ‘thirdparty’ firms. Even when they need help, a bunch of companies cut back on support staff throughout the recession, and many are reluctant to rehire. Weather is the single factor most possibly to affect your trip positively or negatively, and the things many people most take for granted.

Most of us know that there are always exceptions to prevailing weather patterns, especially during transitional seasons.

It’s will be warm in Spain in the course of the spring right? Now look, a weather forecast can guide your packing strategy, and failure to check the weather can result in unprepared, unhappy and very soggy travelers. Call your bank or mastercard company and let them know about your travel plans. On p of that, most banks and bank card companies keep track of spending patterns and may interpret an unexpected overseas purchase as debit card fraud. Your account may be locked if you use your card in another country without notifying your bank.

Reader Alan wrote in with the following recommendation.

Unpacking your luggage at the arrivals area is no fun.

Plan your LAST day! Although, look, there’s one modern item that has become an essential packing item. Bluetooth device that lets you keep both hands on the wheel. Oftentimes local laws governing cell phone use while driving vary considerably, sometimes from one municipality to the next. Pack your ‘hands free’ device in your carry on bag and you shall not find yourself on the side of the road with a dark red siren whirling in your rearview mirror. Click this link: 100. I know that the first day of your trip is often lost to logistics and unfamiliar surroundings. Anyway, you have to haul yourself and your stuff to a resting place. Oftentimes planning ahead will define exactly where you are, that attractions are nearby and how best to use your limited time. Sounds familiarright? Nailing down these facts of your vacation is only the initial stage of the trip planning process, Airfare, hotel accommodations and rental cars should be the holy trinity of travel preparation.

We were visiting Anuradhapura in Sri Lanka, surrounded by hundreds of pilgrims all dressed in white. Suddenly wenoticed a buddhist monk staying silently close to a Stupa. Now look, the bus is far away -„No, thanks, Actually I can walk -„no, I’ll wait, you can’t stay here. I arrived at Siarliai, a small Lithuanian wn by bus to look at to„hill of crosses. Whenever spending far more than I had planned, ok a taxi, I had just missed connecting bus that was supposed to take me there. Let me tell you something. We drove through tofields, far away from tocity. Wait? Oftentimes no. When we reached hill driver looked at me. Whenever hoping I would find my way back, I got out of car and walked wards tohill. That was moment I fell in love with Lithuania. Notice, when I came back few minutes later driver was still there.

I will take you to city -no money.

When we returned to school it felt are on so many adventures gether throughout first semester of school. We were all brought gether by sheer luck, none of us knew ourselves before coming to college. Our first weekend back we decided to take a trip to Santa Monica, that is about few minutes away from Fullerton. We found a parking spot, and strolled to pier to find florescent lights and ocean smells.

travel I am a videographer so naturally I filmed quite a few fun moments with my friends and later turned it into this video.

It’s just a spontaneous action that creates memories.

Sometimes when I was on road for some time I get so used to living in tomoment, day in day out, that I don’t even realise what I am doing at totime. Basically, months of planning had gone into this four week trip around Middle East. I’m quite sure I wasn’t will be there, I always enjoyed big events. Instead, I’m almost sure I was taking an ur through Palestine. Therefore, I knew where all my mates home were could be that day, when I woke up that morning.

It wasn’t until we stopped at dividing wall between Palestine and Israel, and totour guide handed me a can of spray paint, that idea hit me, all day I had my eye out for a gift for happy couple.

I still stood back proud of what I had created, it wasn’t my best work.

travel I only had a small window of opportunity to create my own little piece of art and I finished it in a few minutes. I snapped a photo, posted it on wedded couple’s Facebook page, and was back on bus ready for next stop on totour. I got to work, without much thought. We continued reaching train station and thought that maybe it’ll be cool to take a glance at Gillette Stadium. We wandered around China Town in Boston in search of our next thing to do, after our reedom Trail tour. We didn’t put much thought into it and next thing we knew, we’re on train wards Walpole station. Then again, we failed to realize that there might be a back to back football match happening that late afternoon.

We lingered around a bit of a hassle getting to Patriot Place but we found it to be a cool spot to chill out. To thanks to Boston Police, we were back in Boston safe and sound, just in time to catch our bus to NYC. We ran up to him asking about other alternatives to rush back to Walpole for last train leaving in 10 minutes, when we saw a policeman down tostreet. I entered an international bookshop in Eixample. I bought it, went to the apartments, and started reading.

As expected, a book named „The dead alleys of Barcelona got my attention, a crime for awhile story shot.

I didn’t know this exact street, and I was curious.

I went downtown, wandered around square and saw this café with few tables on toterrace.

Until today, 5 years later, So it’s still my favorite café in Barcelona -thanks to this book! Notice that nicaragua was not kind to for a whileings were drenched with rainwater when a hostel roof collapsed, and I suffered through for a while illness. On p of that, my luggage was delayed, By the way I had a violent bout of food poisoning. Now let me ask you something. When my prized dSLR was stolen from my hostel dorm room? I had thoroughly had enough.

It’s that any single experience is valuable, So in case icaragua taught me nothing else.

I learned from those hardships and am better off because of them, Every experience shapes you.

Now when I look back on those memories, I see Nicaragua through rose colored glasses. Travel comes without guarantees except that it’ll be worth it. My chum and I got off ferry to realize our bus that was supposed to get us wasn’t there, after 6 hours on a ferry from thens to Mykonos. Confused, we walked around to no avail. 100 – visit this website in case you are looking for more read. Food!We went to Palaia Pallada and had toBEST, most authentic Greek food with sweetest waiters!

Doesn’t it sound familiar? They sent us to a nearby travel office and we were ld to take night ferry to Mykonos. What do we do? We so visited Panagia of Tinos.

Okay, consequently what do we do for toafternoon? Time to go! Accordingly the greek islands are a popular travel destination. Thanks to 5 Star Hostels in Greece, mostly there’s no compromise anymore. It’s awhenever gazing at incredible and numerous waterfalls, to aimlessly driving by tofjords, we spent some of time relaxing and exploring beautiful county of Ryfylke -from a 10 Euro/day spa overlooking tolake. Whenever accomplishing these hikes made me feel excited and liberated, I have always been scared of heights, and it had been less than a year since my foot surgery.

There I was.

I completely fell in love with toplace.

Did you know that a backpacker visiting a house transformed into a beautiful museum. Therefore, in Italy. Colors, sparkling water, calm of this hidden gem, a real happy place. In Venice. I ok it out, for first time, that said, this mystery object that everyone was talking about, with that said, this thing that is supposed to be a for awhile being that it takes your pictures to next level.
