Around the World with 40 Lonely Planet Travel Bloggers

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. Says project manager and blogger Todd Wassel of Todd’s Wanderings:

Managing 40 bloggers perpetually traveling in and out of jungles, cafes, monuments and ruins, and internet free zones (gasp!) was not an easy task

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. Karen Catchpole of Trans-Americas Journey explains:

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.

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.

Finally, a special thanks also to Erin Ridley of La Tortuga Viajera, our most excellent PR-sherpa.
