It’s launch day for a brilliant project: a free (yes, no cost) and stunning E-Book by the Lonely Planet bloggers from the Blogsherpa programme. Blogsherpies, as they affectionately call themselves, with generous support from LP in the design and editorial process, made this happen.
“Around the World with 40 Lonely Planet Bloggers” takes readers on a world tour featuring almost 70 countries, and introduces the world of professional travel blogging. Within it, each blogger, hand picked by Lonely Planet, shares a collection of stunning photos that capture the essence of their travel.
Gail Walter from Uncommon Travel and Dave Bouskill and Debra Corbeil of The Planet D also contributed, along with 37 others (including me!) and both these blogs are well worth a click through. In fact, each bloggers’ profile and links are included in their entry in the eBook so you can take a virtual tour of top travel bloggers sites and see how they do it.
Unfortunately, the first photo (p36) for my entry is without reference, but many here will recognise it as the central part of Elmina Castle located in the Central Region of Ghana. I took this photo way back in 2005 during my first visit to Elmina Castle and Ghana, then, as it were. You can read more about that journey here at Ghana Guide and Blog. I also co-founded an organisation called G-lish Foundation last year in the north of Ghana and you can read more about that too. What a journey. I’m sure many of the blogsherpies have similar stories of life-changing travel and adventure so be sure to sign up to G-lish to download your free copy!
