I love reading, I always have. In the last few months, my blog link list has grown steadily and for the last weeks, I also started following the #blogpostsaturday on Facebook. Many awesome travel blogger share their posts each Saturday and people read and comment on each others posts. I love the commitment to eachother and the knowledge that spread between eachother. Which is why I decided to create a (hopefully) weekly traveler’s reading list in which I can share the blog posts that I have read each Saturday.
We can probably all agree that this week has been intense with media and especially social media overflowing with articles on the US election – whether it was people mourning or gloating. I myself was too surprised or shocked this week to keep up reading my blog feed. It took me quite some time to catch up and I’m still not done with #blogpostsaturday.
Here is what I read this week:
Nika published a post on her visit to the concentration camp in Dachau and whether it was worth the visit in comparison to Auschwitz, also in regards of how emotional prepared one has to be to do so. I was a bit careful at first when I saw Laura’s post on how to stay in Europe for $2.80 per day, because it sounded too good to be true. The secret is house-/ pet-sitting and I’ll need to look into that now! I really loved this post on Amsterdam in the fall, especially her pictures are wonderful and make me want to head there immediately! Taylor’s gift guide with ideas for backpackers is inspirational, I have planned a post in ideas myself, but it is good to see, that each one of us has different ideas! I loved Alice’s reflections on the concept of home, it’s something I have thought about a lot myself lately. Daphne from girlswanderlust collected 10 possible jobs that one could do while traveling the world! Brigitte reflects in her post on Remembrance Day in Germany. I’m a bit torn on that subject, but I also always question the concept of heros in general. Cristina shared a sample one week itinerary for Italy, it would be too short for me, but for someone coming to Italy for the first time and with only a week-long vacation it might be great! If you are looking for a winter getaway, you should check this post on winter in Romania. I always rather dreamed about Christmas in the sun, but I get that people like the fluffy white snow! Stacey shared her adventures in London for one day and Sarah the perfect 16 hours in Bristol! Maybe I really need to do more of those shorter trips! Katie’s guide of things to do in Talinn was a good read, I always like these guides, they give you an overview of things to do! And I wholeheartedly agree with Carly that Rothenburg ob der Tauber deserves more than one day – I’d say that almost every city deserves that! I found this post on what to bring in your hand luggage on a long flight quite helpful! Have you heard about the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) that opened a while ago in DC? Marissa shares her first visit there!

Great that you have read our post on 10 possible travel jobs! Thank you =)
I’m so glad you liked the NMAAHC post! Thanks for the link and have a great week!
Hi Marissa! I really did, I love museums and DC is a great place for museum-lovers. There should be more blog posts in general on the different museums, in my opinion.
Love that you checked out my London post! As for sunshine Christmas you can always check my home country of Barbados!
Hi Stacey! I actually did 😛 I’d love to go to Barbados one day (even if it’s not for Christmas). It’s just so far away… But I guess this is why we have bucket lists.
This is really cool of you to share these posts! I might have to look into house/pet sitting now too! Thank you for sharing!
You’re welcome. I figured with the amount of posts I actually read each week(end), I can at least share some links I liked. I plan to do it every Sunday as a review of some sort.
Thanks for reading and sharing my post about home 🙂 This reading list is an excellent idea, I’ll check it out as well as your posts !
