My Seven Links
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
