Welcome to your weekly travel digest. Just like a young chap in the early 1900’s, I will be playing the role of town cryer telling you all of the best travel articles hot of the (word)press.
Each week I will be posting up my favorite blog reads that catch my terribly low attention span. No, I will not be in overalls and a golf cap like this dapper young lad on the left.
When I’m not wandering around the world, I’m reading about it, so I want to collect some entertainment to light that travel spirit under your ass!
There will be no “Top 10” posts here, no “Best Beaches” bullshit, just straight up travel adventures and motivation.

The connection between walking lions and canned lion hunting
by Green Global Travel
This was a shocker to read and an eye opener. Though I’ve never “walked a lion” and that I refuse to go to the tiger shows in Thailand, a lion conservation would make me think sanctuary. Apparently not. This is a must read about how lions are being raised by tourism dollars for the chance to walk them, only to have them hunted down the road for game and money.
