Tā kā esmu sākusi rakstīt ceļojumu blogu, tad šķita, ka šī man man būs ļoti noderīga grāmata. Nevarētu teikt, ka guvu kādas negaidītas atklāsmes, taču kopumā tā bija diezgan noderīga lasāmviela, kas palīdzēja šo to salikt pa plauktiņiem, guvu arī pa kādai labai atziņai vai ieteikumam.

3. There's information on how to set up a private/professional travel blog.
4. And last but not least there's a great ma

Wanderlust now on high alert

If my travel yearnings get much worse I may just have throw a few things in my beat up duffel bag and head to the Greyhound bus station.

A great book, full of relevant advice, whilst not sugar coating the life of a travel writer.
