Blogging your trip can be a vault of ideas and memories, sharing your blog can be extremely rewarding especially if you have readers who comment and are eagerly awaiting your next entry. Readers are great to keep you going, you know you aren’t just writing and spilling your heart to an empty place in cyber space.
