The Best Travel Blog of 2007*


Thank you to everyone who headed over to Performancing to vote for me. I have now officially been crowned The Best Travel Blog of 2007*!

08_01_11 performancingwinWhy the asterisk, you ask?

Well, the editors over there decided that reader votes aren’t enough. They thought they’d come up with their own winners from the list as well. So I won the reader vote, but the editors voted for Gridskipper. I didn’t even take their runner-up spot – Gadling took that honor.

But hey, who cares what editors think anyway? You guys, my readers, voted for me, and that’s all I care about. Hopefully I can keep writing things that interest you. The good news is that in case I’m unable to fulfill my duties during the upcoming year, it’s very comforting to know that Travel Rants came in second, and they could easily have won this one.

Thanks again for your vote.

  1. That’s actually my head on top of George Clooney’s body. I figured we looked so similar anyway . . .

  2. Congratulations! Looking forward to reading more of your stuff this year. I didn’t know they give away Oscars for blogs too!

    By the way, did you decide which route you’re taking to Peru? I remember you conducting a survey but not sure what your final decision was.

  3. Linguist-in-Waiting – Well, it hasn’t been booked yet, but we’re probably going to go with LAN. It’s nonstop, the times are right, and the cool connections (like AV in Bogota) would require an overnight. Just not worth it.
