The GoodWe were initially suspicious, thinking it was going to be another boring backpacker’s brag list of places he has been to. Instead, we found a sensitively written travelogue by a guy who really seems to be searching for a place to call “home.” He shares our prejudices with regards to arrogant up-market tourists, “sex-pats” and party-backpackers, so we admit to a strong bias in his favor from the beginning. However, he also finds the beauty in every place he visits and records it all eloquently in his blog, stories and photographs and videos. We came away from this website inspired to travel and explore.
The BadIf we have one complaint about The Longest Way Home, it would be that it suffers from information overload. The author has been traveling for over 5 years and it is all there on his website. This can keep armchair travelers occupied for nearly the length of time he’s been traveling. Surprisingly, this is one site where we would have liked to have seen more advertising. After he inspired us to visit the Philippines, for example, we had to leave his site in order to find the best travel deals to that country.
