My Seven Links

My Seven Links

I was recently nominated by Steph at Twenty-Something Travel to take part in the Seven Links Project–and decided it would be a fun chance to look back at a few of my favorite posts.

The goal of the Seven Links Project is to unite bloggers in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long-gone-but-not-forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again. So without further ado, a few of my favorites:

Girl touching a bubble at Centre Pompidou, Paris, France


Most beautiful post: My list of little travel joys

I still remember just how happy I was when I wrote this post: riding a high of new places, good friends and fun times. Reading it still puts a smile on my face–as I hope it does for everyone who knows that little feeling of joy when your public  transport shows up just when you do.

Coffee in DiBella Warehouse in Melbourne, Australia

Most popular post: Skinny, strong and hot: the Melbourne coffee scene

It’s amazing what a Lonely Planet RT can do for traffic. So, thank you, Lonely Planet Twitter team and everyone else who RTed or Stumbled this post.

Most controversial: Why solo female travel also means single

I swear I’m not cynical, bitter or closing myself off to love. But I’m 23 years old and I’ve got heaps of wanderlust: I’m simply not that fussed with finding a partner or putting a ring on my finger or anything of the sort just yet.

Fish at a restaurant in Paris, France

Most helpful post: The art of dining in France

Eating in a restaurant in France is not the same as eating in a restaurant in America. I think once you wrap your head around this, dining in France automatically becomes a lot more enjoyable.

A post whose success surprised me: “French” things that aren’t really French

One of the most popular posts on my blog, and it’s sort of silly. But if just one person heads to France and doesn’t expect to order French toast at breakfast, it’ll be worth it.

Roofs of Corsica, France over the Mediterranean in summer

A post that didn’t get the success it deserved: Corsica: France’s best-kept secret

Corsica is my favorite France. Pristine beaches, rugged mountain ranges, hearty food, friendly people: what’s not to love? Go. Now.

Post you are most proud of: Sometimes, I wish I were there

I still have fixed-life envy, and working at a fabulous furniture gallery doesn’t really help much. Being surrounded by beautiful things, reading interior design blogs–I’m growing more and more keen to have a place of my own. This post still speaks to me–and honestly, I just love the term “fixed life envy” because it sums up so much of what I feel.

  • Loved your 7 Links! I already had read some of them… but really enjoyed reading the others (specially the one on the art of dining in France… !!).

    It is rather interesting what we personally hold dear in our hearts is often the blog posts that get the least attention. 

  • Love your selection! I particularly enjoyed your art of dining in France post, because French are serious about their meals! It’s funny how sometimes it’s the posts that come the most easily that get more attention.

    I love your blogs! Nice job! I write a blog too for my site http://www.WorldHomeExchanges.com and your stories are an inspiration : ) …And I’m dying to see Corsica France now!!!

    Thanks, Jen

    I’m so glad you shared links to some of your older, yet favorite, posts! I recently discovered your blog, so this will help me catch up! 🙂

  • Love seeing older posts!  Sometimes its great to go back and read posts you’ve read before or just some that you never knew existed.  SevenLinks sounds like it will be a great project.

    I struggle with fixed-life envy until I’m living a relatively fixed-life. Then, I suffer from ansty-feet. Also known as traveling-life envy. 🙂 

  • Love all of your links! What a wonderful trip down memory lane!
