I am trying something new on the blog. I just returned from a Nordic swing: Iceland, Faroe Islands, Finland, Aland, Sweden, Greenland and Denmark. I learned a lot, took many pictures, have ideas for numerous blog posts, and already it is drifting to the pile of trips from the past two years in my blog backlog. I’ll keep humoring/deceiving myself that I will catch up with the time-consuming elaborate travelogues.
While things are fresh I will chip out concise thoughts and tips that may help you when in the neighborhood.
The idea is to cover:
- Why I picked where I went in the destination
- How I put it together
- Tips and gotchas I learned along the way
- Do I recommend someone retrace my path?
These will not be a (pet peeve) ‘Ultimate Guide to…’ Guidebooks and the rest do not need to be replaced by me. This is about my honest take and the stuff the ‘Ultimate Guides’ missed.
I reached 205 Travelers Century Club countries this trip (119 to go!). This series might be a way to count down back through time to revisit the whole raft.
