Two of my latest articles…

Check out my feature story and photography from the Yangmingshan Flower Festival on Culture Taiwan Portal.

Don’t forget to check out Unearthing Asia’s free online issue of Unearthing Asia travel magazine, Issue 2, and keep an eye out for my articles and photography on Taipei, Taiwan night markets, and Sydney, Australia.

In Travel News…

Josh Summers, freelance writer and author of Xinjiang Far West China (one of my favorite Asian travel blogs) has been hard at work this month producing guest articles in an effort to promote his FREE ebook entitled Travel to Turpan. Josh was recently featured here on My Several Worlds (Five Dirty Cities in China You’ll WANT to Visit). You can also catch his story, A Tired Traveler in Turpan on Asian Ramblings.

Matt Gibson interviews Rolf Potts, Gary Arndt, and Nomadic Matt all in the same month! Read his primary interviews with these world famous nomads on Transitions Abroad and then drop in to Matt’s travel and photography site for a few extra (and thought-provoking) questions and answers.

Two new Canadian lady bloggers are on my radar this month…

Spunky Girl Monologues is written by Pamela MacNaughtan, a blogger, traveler, amateur photographer and rambler getting ready to embark on a RTW trip beginning in Asia next year. Pam shares stories about her past trips, travel tips, and oodles of great travel photos. Pam has been working overtime this month in honor of Earth Day. She’s devoted her entire blog to traveling green this month.

In Taiwan News…

Alitaworld is officially up and running. Alita Rickards, writer, traveler, burlesque dancer, singer, and student of Mandarin Chinese lends insight into life in Taiwan.

Cheers to my friend James Baron, who from now on will be known as The Writing Baron. I helped James get set up with his own WordPress blog a few weeks ago and he’s been writing furiously since then. It’s obvious he has every intention of living up to his nickname. Anyway, stop in and say hello if you have a moment. I know he’ll be happy to hear from you.

In ESL News…

An interesting post here on 20 Social Networking Vocabulary Words for teaching social media terms in the ESL classroom.

In Travel Photography…

Craig Ferguson has an excellent photo essay on Travel + Leisure Asia from his travels to the Thaipusam Festival at Batu Caves in Malaysia. His recent Lightroom series is also a must read for aspiring photographers.

Adventurocity has a great surfing story from Taiwan and some stunning galleries on display. My favorite collection of photos is the Burma (Myanmar) gallery.

    Thanks for the list and ESPECIALLY the amazing Burma/Myanmar gallery. I teach high school World Geography near Houston, TX, so I’ll be using this gallery in my class soon.

    In August, I’ll be heading to Taiwan to teach English for a year. Thanks for the links to browse!
