And before we get into this month’s travel and inspirational links, I’m happy to say that this link round-up is sponsored by Bookaway.com, where you can find, compare, and book buses, trains, and boats to get you from point A to point B.
They currently work in 30 countries (with a particular focus on Southeast Asia), and the big benefit here is that they bridge the gap between local suppliers and world travelers. (If you’ve ever had trouble finding a good bus option online and then gotten to a destination and found out there were like 10 good options and they just didn’t have websites, you know what I mean.)
They offer over 2,000 routes and a 24/7 support team that works closely with the local transport companies.
If you love this blog and my travel advice has improved your life, I encourage you to check out sponsors like Bookaway. I only take on sponsors when I think they’re doing something cool and relevant, and by checking them out, you’re helping me keep this site going. Win-win-win.
And now that you’ve got your Asian bus, train, and boat travel covered, onto the links:
