Time flies: This week’s best travel blogs
By Holly Cave
Jürgen and Mike have given themselves 91 days to explore Sri Lanka – and 91 days in each destination they visit henceforth. From reading their blog, it seems like they thought this would feel like a long time, but my sense is that time is going faster than they expected! Earlier this week, they were relaxing after a busy few weeks in the chilled-out village of Arugum Bay. Despite being in a surfer’s paradise, the guys were after relaxation and spent their days soaking up the sun and watching others chase waves. Sounds good to me. Follow 91 Days on Twitter.
It was also wet for Ali down in Wellington, but of the rainy kind. This port city is known for its tumultuous weather, but Ali did eventually get a chance to explore New Zealand’s capital without getting soaked. And I’m glad she did, because the resulting post is a great guide to the city, with lots of suggestions of things to see and do. I’m sorry I missed the Mount Victoria lookout while I was there – a good tip. Follow Ali’s Adventures on Twitter.
Another great city guide came from Jdomb’s Travels, as Jennifer reviewed the highlights of quaint Bruges, Belgium. With some key bits of history and suggestions of the best buildings and sights to check out, and this is a handy little guide for anyone planning to visit the city in the near future.

Jake and Leslie of Downtown Traveler were this week reviewing their Argentina road trip: The best of Tucuman, Salta and Jujuy. The intriguing photos alone would be enough to make this a fascinating blog post, but the written highlights of their two week road trip are a fantastic read, nicely summed up into the seven highlights of their journey. From blinding white salt flats to ancient ruins and multi-coloured mountains, this sounds like one hell of a trip! Follow Downtown Traveler on Twitter.
