TRAVEL NARRATIVES
Thank you to Soloride on Stumble Upon for letting me know about The World by Road, a blog about driving around the world. Steve Shoppman and Steve Bouey started their two year trip in Denver, Colorado last February. I've just started reading the archives, but I'm already impressed. Interesting stories and great photographs make up for the awkward blog navigation (it would be great if they offered an archive search to make it easier to read the blog from the beginning). They are inviting travelers to join them for different parts of their journey. If you are interested, take a look at their time line for future countries to see where they are going next.
