If by any strange reason you are searching for some blogs to read allow me to make a suggestion. Via NyTimes I found this site called TravelBlog for people blogging while traveling. From the site :"Travel Blog is a collection of travel journals, diaries, stories and photos from all around the world, ordinary people doing extraordinary things. For travellers, this site includes lots of features that help keep family and friends back home up to date with your adventure."
I would not put any of these in my usual reads but maybe I will check back to this page before my next long holidays ... umm .. sometime after I finish my phd.
