I’ve been spending the last few weeks networking within the travel blogging community, and have come across some amazing people who run some amazing blogs!  Nicole and Michael from Suitcase Stories are two such people and I am very excited to feature their photo essay on world landmarks as my first guest blog.

When we started our nomadic travels 13 months ago we had a list of natural and man made landmarks that we really wanted to see.  Along the way a few more popped up as we explored new countries.

Some travelers avoid the popular landmarks as they feel they are ‘tourist traps’.  Not me! No, I feel I would be missing out on an important part of the country if I were to miss the landmarks it is known for.

Why go to Pairs without seeing the Eiffel Tower?  How could you go to New York City and not see the Brooklyn Bridge?

Some of my best memories from the last 13 months have been our visits to famous landmarks!  Here are ten of my favorites….

Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro – This is the 5th largest Jesus statue in the world.

Nicole and Michael are an Australian couple who gave up their careers, sold their possessions and left their ‘conventional’ life behind for a life of travel. They have been living a nomadic life for 13 months and see no end in sight.

They recently launched Suitcase Stories, a website where they share their stories, travel tips and destination guides.  Their main goal for this website is to inspire others to travel and to show people how long term travel is not only possible but affordable.

You can follow their journey on FacebookTwitter and Pinterest also.
