Happy Birthday, Rambling Traveler!

It was one year ago today that I started Rambling Traveler. A place to share my thoughts about travel, it has also introduced me to an incredible community of travelers, including other bloggers. That community has provided more travel stories, tips, and other resources that I can share with my readers. It just keeps growing!

In the past year, over 57,000 visitors from all over the world have visited RT. After the United States, the top 5 countries that visited were:
1. Canada
2. United Kingdom
3. Australia
4. Netherlands
5. Germany

There have been over 98,000 page views. The most popular travel posts were:
1. Wall Murals of Quebec City
2. 10 Tricks to Meeting People While Traveling
3. Respectful Travel
4. View from the Bridge of Sighs
5. Glendalough Monastic Site
You came to RT by typing in or by referral from another site. The top referring sites were:
1. StumbleUpon
2. Google, Yahoo, and other internet search engines
3. Rambling Puzzles
4. MyBlogLog
5. Other Travel Blogs that have linked to RT

I'm looking forward to another year just as wonderful as the last one and I'm hoping you will be a part of it. If you have any comments or suggestions for Rambling Traveler, please let me know by commenting below or sending me an email.

Thank you!


*according to jek in the box, that cupcake came from Trader Joe's. We have a Trader Joe's near us, I wonder if they have those cupcakes? I should probably get some to celebrate such a big day.
