Blog – My favourite travel stories of the week
Forty, twenty-seven, five… it’s an unusual countdown, but it does no harm to have a theme.
And the theme to this week’s top blog posts seems to be numbers.
From forty amazing pictures of Peru, to 27 rules to be a ‘master traveler’ to five fantastic destinations in Taiwan.
Here are my favourite travel blog posts from the last week….
Peru is a beautiful country and my trip to Machu Picchu earlier this year certainly provided plenty of photographic opportunities.
But this Matador Network post by Hal Amen shows some truly inspirational images – as well as revealing how much more there is to Peru than simply The Inca Trial and Lake Titicaca.
I was also particularly fascinated to see the ocean scenes from Miraflores in Lima, as when I visited the view offered nothing but clouds.
Love these travel tips from Nomadic Matt – particularly the last one…
My personal favourites from his list: Get lost in places, it’s the best way to see what the locals do. Travel alone; you’ll grow up overnight and learn skills that will last you a lifetime. Be adventurous; if you can’t live a little when you’re travelling, when can you?
Not everything Made In Taiwan comes with a label attached to its plastic bottom – as this wonderful post from Dan and Casey from A Cruising Couple shows.
It’s actually a guest post on the Nomadic Samuel blog, and reveals five fantastic places to go in the east Asian state.

One of our own to go alongside Matador Network’s fantastic forty.
