Around the World with 40 Lonely Planet Bloggers
Today, 40 Lonely Planet travel bloggers release their first photo eBook. I’m very excited to be one of them.
Around the World with 40 Lonely Planet Bloggers takes readers on a world tour of almost 70 countries and introduces the world of professional travel blogging. Each blogger, hand picked by Lonely Planet, shares a collection of stunning photos that capture the essence of their travel. The eBook is free and you can download it directly from Lonely Planet here.
“The gathering of this eclectic group of travel experts was born out of Lonely Planet’s effort to broaden content for their audience. Lonely Planet wanted to shine a light on the very best travel writing and photography on the planet”.
Uniting from across the globe, the BlogSherpas, as they are called, share their adventures through the photo ebook. “Managing 40 bloggers perpetually traveling in and out of jungles, cafes, monuments and ruins, and internet free zones (gasp!) was not an easy task” says project manager and blogger Todd Wassel of Todd’s Wanderings.
In addition to an eye-popping collection of photographs, the book is a rich resource for anyone with a passion for travel who wants to learn from the experts. “The 40 BlogSherpas showcased in the ebook specialize in travel modes ranging from solo to couples to family travel, road trips, budget travel, expat living, voluntourism and even perpetually traveling digital nomads,” explains blogger Karen Catchpole of Trans-Americas Journey.
An accomplished group, the BlogSherpas have reached beyond their own blogs, having been published in the likes of National Geographic Traveler, Huffington Post, Travel + Leisure, AFAR and more.
Here’s more on the project from Lonely Planet.
Finally, a special thanks also to Erin Ridley of La Tortuga Viajera, our most excellent PR-sherpa.
