Matt Long describes himself as “an average person” who just loves to travel. His blog substantiates this claim. It is a refreshing change from the many travel blogs that are written solely from a young backpacker’s perspective. There is something for every traveler in Landlopers. His acerbic post about the Meridien N’Fis Hotel in Marracech in “Bad Hotel! Bad, Bad Hotel” is a case in point. We loved the way he managed to make his point so forcefully without losing his sense of humor. His article, “How Not to Get Arrested in Bangkok” is one that should be read by everyone who travels to that country, not just those who have read Alex Garland’s novel, “The Beach.” We also liked the neat, easy-to-navigate magazine style template he uses.
