We are making a few minor changes on The Working Traveller. One of these involves scrapping the Twitter 10. As such, and because it is the end of the year, we thought now would be a good time to list our ten favourite articles. The articles below have been chosen not just from 2011 but from when we started this column in August 2010.

We have been doing this feature for over a year now and have long noticed that often the same names crop up time and time again. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Often it is a consequence of consistent good writing and ideas that particularly appeal to us.
