Around the World
Can you feel it? This ebook represents the love and passion for travel that bind together
Lonely Planet’s amazing travel community.
From an experiment born of our Innovation team, the Lonely Planet Blogger program
has grown to encompass some of the most experienced travel writers around the globe.
The original concept was simple: get the best travel bloggers out there to share their
thoughts and ideas with as large an audience as possible. Lonely Planet had the audience
and some stunning content, but by inviting in great bloggers we broadened our content
offering while exposing these writers and photographers to a new audience. Our mission
was to shine a light on the best travel writing and images on the planet.
Although conceived as a concept for the Lonely Planet website, this project has left its
confines. Our blogging community has taken the concept of the best in travel blogging
and run with it, producing an impressive piece of work. It’s been written, designed and
distributed by the bloggers themselves. We have been genuinely inspired by their drive,
ambition and spirit.
We’ve loved seeing this book take shape, and we’re excited to be part of a community
that is so united and passionate. We hope you enjoy the ride.
The Lonely Planet Editorial Team
Around the World with 40 Lonely Planet Bloggers
There are so many people to thank for this project, including Lonely Planet and the Bloggers themselves.
However, a few deserve to be recognized by name. Thank you to Todd Wassel of Todd’s Wanderings for
project managing, editing, and not sleeping much. Managing 40 bloggers perpetually travelling in and out
of jungles, cafes, monuments and ruins, and internet free zones (gasp!) could not have been easy. Also, a
special thanks to the editors who took time out of their busy travel schedules:
Jennifer Hattam of The Turkish Life
Katya Marinova of Great Places in Bulgaria
Dave Bouskill and Debra Corbeil of The Planet D
