Travel Blogger Friday 37

Travel Blogger Friday 37

Good old Friday again, it rolls around signalling escape to those that are in the 9 to 5, Monday to Friday working cycle. Unless of course your a traveller, a backpacker, a wandering spirit where every day is Friday or Tuesday or who cares really because you just chalked up another day doing something you love. Right now where was I going with all this… oh yeah now I remember.

I’ve been following Dave from for a fair old while now and figured it was time to show my appreciation by giving him a good old write up here.

Dave has seen and done a lot. Starting in London some 10 or more years ago to progressing to Africa, Asia and even America where he took what has to be one fine road trip from Seattle to California. Having grown up in the middle of know where in Australia I’ve forever been in love with a good old drive. Just the road, some tunes and nothing but time… oh how I miss driving.

Another recent post that is more entertaining than rant was his post on why top 10 post make my head explore. I’m particularly fond of the last category:

Top 10 Travel Bloggers Who Are Far More Popular Than I Am And Will Hopefully Give Me A Bunch Of Free Publicity If I Mention Them In A Post

And while this is just a Top One post I’m sure Dave will help me out with some shameless promotion of my blog to help build on my addiction to be like the totally coolest doped out travel blogger/writer/guru/expert you’ll read in the next 5 minutes. Right Dave??

    As much as I love his posts about some of the amazing places he’s visited (and have had to add to my travel list), Dave’s become extremely adept at his “get up and do it” posts. The motivational side of him keeps me energized even though I’m already out there.

      eww. this comment was way too peppy for me.

        That’s me all over. Mr. Pep.

          well, calm down. we don’t need dave’s head getting all enlarged. If he thinks he’s a good travel blogger, he’ll stop working and then who is going to fund our rock’n roll lifestyle, Joel? huh? who then?

          • DAVE February 12, 2011 at 5:43 AM #

            That’ll be more than enough about enlarged head out of you, young lady.

      Thanks for the peppy peptalk, Mr Pep! See you next month!!

    I’m fond of that last one, too! No matter how desperate I may get for traffic, I will not engage this tactic!

    I agree with Joel! DAVE ROCKS! (that’s what he was getting at, i think). Though I find it a LITTLE ironic that he mentioned “Top 10 Travel Bloggers Who Are Far More Popular Than I Am And Will Hopefully Give Me A Bunch Of Free Publicity If I Mention Them In A Post” because he DEFINITELY wrote that post and definitely put me as number one and two (something about how I’m so awesome I deserved two places in the top 10). I mean, c’mon Dave… a little consistency. I did give him like 40 @ mentions tho, so I guess it worked!

    • DAVE February 12, 2011 at 5:45 AM #

      Thank you my love. And I’m pretty sure that had I written that post, I would have put you at numbers one through ten at least, not just the top couple. Let’s be realistic, after all.

    Chris mate, you rock! Thank you so much for featuring me in this segment – and obviously the shameless promotion is just a given! 😉

    It was a very nice surprise to read as I was sitting in Melbourne Friday night traffic last night, that’s for sure. And no officer, I certainly wasn’t reading blog posts on my phone while behind the wheel. Because I’m sure that if I had been, it would have been at least a $20000000 fine.

      Dave mate I obviously made a good choice given the amount of comments from the peanut gallery above. I do applaud your dedication to blog reading though.

    There is nothing like lasting the stereo in you car and an open highway! I haven’t driven a car in a year! Thanks for introducing us to this new blogger. I will have to check Dave out.

      Anthony mate I relish the chance I get to drive here in London. When I was home in October last year I took every chance I could to get behind the wheel as well.

    The unabashed humor in the top 10 hate list totally won me over.

    How did I just come across Dave’s blog recently? I was missing out — good one!!

  8. DAVID ALGULIN February 13, 2011 at 1:30 PM #

    Cool stuff!!!!
