What's so amazing about the Internet is that there's an opportunity for everyone to start something (a business, a website, a blog) and if you put something good out there, it has a good chance of sticking! The two-month old travel site ThisWeekInTravel.com is doing just that. It's been created by three popular travel bloggers: Jen Leo from the LA Times, Chris Christensen, the host of the online show Amateur Travel and Gary Arndt, who's been traveling the world since 2007 and runs the blog Everything- Everywhere.com.
ThisWeekInTravel.com offers a weekly podcast, covering news and topics and trends in the travel industry. I learned about it when they invited me to be their guest of the week. Unfortunately, my schedule has been crazy and whenever they tape their weekly podcast (recorded over Skype every Wednesday between 7:15am and 8:15am), I seem to be on a plane or at a conference.
I've listened to a few of their podcasts and I'm impressed. The hosts and their guests chat about the travel news of the week for an hour and give a useful tip at the end of the show. If you're interested in travel (obviously you are!), I'm sure you'll like it.
