#Follow Friday 11Feb2011

10.February 2011


Happy #FollowFriday everyone!!

The theme this week seems to be food and couples with two Tweeps writing about food as they travel, and two two-stepping it together as two-some travellers. Really, I kill myself sometimes!!No?!

Have you signed up to Twitter yet to join the conversation? You can find me at @OneGiantStep. Say hello!

Ayngelina www.BaconIsMagic.com @ayngelina

It’s pretty self explanatory…the girl writes about pork products!!! She’s had Jason drooling since she started! She writes about much more than bacon and ham though, telling stories about her travels through Latin America. It’s interesting watching her evolve in the process as she struggled with leaving Central/South America to continue her RTW plans and, ultimately, decided to stay in Latin America for the duration and then revealing that, secretly, she intends to stay on the road indefinitely. She is one to watch as she transitions into a location independant life!

Kim and Clark  www.ToUncertaintyAndBeyond.com @2unb

Kim is a fellow SpunkyGirl who has had a whirlwind last couple of months. She and her husband, Clark, recently returned from an around-the-world trip and she is currently in Guatemala (sans hubby) brushing up on her Spanish and wandering the country. I’m interested to see what Clark gets up to!!

Akila and Patrick  www.TheRoadForks.com @theroadforks

Akila and Patrick have also completed their 13 months of traveling around the world. They write about their travels with a foodie focus that will keep you coming back for more. This week they started a series called The RTW Planning In Retrospect Project whereby they look at the planning they put into their trip before they left and re-evaluate how important that planning was once they were on the road. Not only are they telling of their own planning hits and misses, but they are also including a Travelers Talk Back piece asking other travelers what their hits and misses were. Brilliant help for those of you planning your escapes now! You can look for my voice in the Talk Back Tuesdays.

What about you? Who are you following this week?
