  • Torre – Fearful Adventurer  says:

    Ha ha! Love the summary. Thanks for the mention.

    • The Working Traveller  says:

      You’re welcome. And I had no idea Dorothy had a thing for the Tin Man.

  • Natalie  says:

    I have missed half of these posts and the headlines are so alluring. Thanks for the mention!

    • The Working Traveller  says:

      No problem. I enjoyed the insight into those accomplished and intimidating Turkish women. I’ve long held a theory that Turkish men only spend lots of time at tea houses because they are chased out of the home for making it look untidy.

  • Jeff  says:

    Thanks for including my post. It’s one of my favs too.

    • The Working Traveller  says:

      I am usually on the other end of the camera and have often wondered how my shots turned out. I suspect I now have the answer.

  • Si  says:

    I never thought I would see Sri Lankan gangsters, The Turkish Housewives Club and soiling your passport all in the same post.

    As always some great reads, something to aspire to being included in the list!

    Love the blog, regards


    • The Working Traveller  says:

      I’ve just taken a look at your site and like what you are doing on The Departure Board. I am sure you will be included here sooner or later and have subscribed to your RSS feed to increase the chance.

      I’m thinking of shaking this feature up a little by requesting readers nominate their own selections. At the moment I must miss hundreds of good blog posts each month because I’m not subscribed to their RSS feed or following them on Twitter.

      • Si @ thedepartureboard  says:

        Thanks for the follow. That sounds like a great feature as you can’t read them all!

  • Lisa @chickybus  says:

    Thanks so much for including me on this list! I’m happy that more people will now be exposed to the story re: the wonderful woman/family I met in Panama and her/their generosity. It’s what I love most about traveling!

    • The Working Traveller  says:

      I couldn’t agree more (though the food gives people a run for their money).

      Thinking about it, I like nice people that give me food.

  • Todd @ Todd's Wanderings  says:

    Thanks for including my story! Although the way you describe it maybe it is better if it doesn’t get spread around the internet too much ;)

    • The Working Traveller  says:

      Too late, it’s out there now and you only have yourself to blame. :)
