      I think it’s the most important one of all, since in a way, it’s part of everything that inspires me or anyone else. My list is in no particular order, I just kept going with whatever came to mind. Thank you for the comment and for reading!

      Out of all the bloggers I regularly visit/keep in touch with on WordPress, I always felt that we’re very similar/you’re easy to relate to.

    I love travel writers, as well. My favorite is Bill Bryson (“A Walk in the Woods” is my favorite). Oh, and he is funny. Very funny.

      Great. I’ve heard of him but I’ve never read any of his stuff, but being funny just makes it better!
