Sunday reading: half-birthday edition

Tomorrow marks the blog’s six-month anniversary and I am very thankful for the support I’ve received since January. I honestly didn’t know whether anyone would read my writing, or whether travel blogging would hold my interest, but I am still 100% focused on writing, shooting, and coming up with more and more things to write about. Going into the next six months, all I can do is promise to keep working hard to post interesting, relevant content and earn your continued support. Thank you!

5 tips for taking great food photos (CNNGo) As someone who frequently takes pictures of food, this article was a great refresher. The timing couldn’t have been better, too, for I’ll be blogging from Taste of Nova Scotia’s Food Fare By the Sea as part of Tall Ships 2012.

Solo Travel: Absolute Freedom (Huffington Post Travel) Lee touches on a lot of things I love about solo travel: being forced to interact with people and “It forces you to take charge and learn about where you are, where you’re going and where you’ve been.” I couldn’t have said it better.

I Steal Hotel Pens and Other Confessions by Travel Writers (LandLopers) True Story: I steal hotel toiletries if they will pack well in a 1L liquids bag. I got some long, skinny ones at the Michigan State University conference centre that were life-changing. When I used to travel for work, I always stole hotel envelopes and stationery. I miss hotel stationery.

6 Questions to Ask Your New Travel Partner Before Your First Trip (Vagabondish) Absolutely brilliant. So much grief can be avoided by dealing with these questions up front. Brilliant.

Why I Don’t Like The Actual Act Of Travelling (Just Travelous) Yup. With the exception of train travel, I find a lot of travel tedious, boring, or excruciating. However, the outcome makes it worth it.

Finally, it blows my mind that readers all over the world (43 countries just this week!) have found Bite-sized Travel. Please say hello through the comments and let me know if you have any questions about the places I visit!
