How exactly does one pick just five posts to highlight out of a week’s worth of post bounty? Impossible, I say. Particularly since we have one more blogger on our team who has been a writing fiend ever since he started posting on Monday. Blogger Grant Martin has an eye and ear out for cheap travel and the bizarre story like Delta Requires Two Seats for Conjoined Twins.
Then there is Leif Pettersen’s last post on his hilarious series My Bloody Romania. He’s back in Minnesota thinking that everywhere he goes smells like french fries. I’ll miss Leif’s missives here, but more can be found at his blog Killing Batteries.
We’ve had a week of dabbling into science and technology with posts on a man-made island (Neil), space travel (me), and forays into the mysterious like the Loch Ness Monster (Catherine). Kelly’s travel read picks have also started again now that she’s back from Australia. There are five new One for the Road gems.
Here are my five posts if I must pick five–and I must. It’s “gadling TAKE FIVE,” that’s why.
Matthew’s post on vending machines in Japan brought back my own memories of why I was never thirsty for very long when I traveled there.
Martha has recommendations for cheap alcoholic beverages.
Neil has found the upside of global warming.
And Justin continues to find people whose packing abilities make me jealous.
This coming week, watch for another Where on Earth post. Brett’s wild about Gozo, Malta, the place he featured for this go round.
