#FollowFriday

This weeks #FollowFriday follows the trajectory of a traveler with one backpacker just about to head out on an RTW trip, one couple at the 6 month mark of their travels, and another couple who takes long term travel to a whole other level!

Jaime is just about beside himself as he prepares to leave on his RTW on 01Mar2011…that’s in just 4 days! I love Jaime’s writing as he is just so full of enthusiasm and excitement; it comes through in every post he writes. He has a compelling backstory that includes him screwing up pretty badly but then taking full responsibility for it and even using it as a lesson and a driving force to move him forward. I can’t wait to hear his stories from the road as I’m sure they will be adventure filled and honest. Congratulations Jaime!!

Poi and Kirsty just posted their 6 month on the road post…already. These kids are having a romping good time as they wander through China and South East Asia. They got hung up in Chiang Mai for two months…as many travelers do…but are back on the road now hitting Laos, Cambodia, and then back to Thailand. I love them; they are fun and light and such a cute couple too!

Canada’s Adventure Couple more than live up to their name and show us what long term travel can really look like.  They have been traveling all over the world for 13 years as they chase down adventure and fun at every turn. They are dedicated to seeing the world, giving back as they go and reporting their story truthfully. Their next big adventure is to take part in the Mongol Rally in July; driving from London, England to Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia while raising money for the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation. You can follow this adventure, and meet other memebers of the team, at TheSocialMediaSyndicate. Good luck guys…I’ll be following along for sure!
