This week I can say goodbye summer and hello fall all one sentence. The leaves are just starting to turn red and day light is fading. This week there are a lot of announcements to make, so let’s get the ball rolling.

This past week it was a pleasure to be included in Nora Dunn’s article 15 Airport Hacks from Professional Travelers. As my world continuously grows and we propel ourselves on-wards as professional travelers and bloggers, we are surrounded by a growing number of amazing writers. Nora is an awesome writer and if you haven’t checked out her site, The Professional Hobo, she has tons of resourceful content on there including her two books, How to Get Free Accommodation Around the World and Tales of Trains: Where the Journey is the Destination.

I am also very excited to announce that we are now also endorsing Nomadic Matt’s travel books. If you don’t know, Nomadic Matt is one of the top travel bloggers out there. The theme of his site is: Travel better, cheaper, longer. We love his site and the vibe it has. I’ve bought two of his books, The Ultimate Guide to Travel Hacking and How to Make Money with Your Blog, and they are both excellent books. Whether you are a well seasoned traveler or a newbie (hello and welcome!), check out any of Matt’s books:
- How to Build a Travel Blog
- How to Make Money and Monetize Your Blog
- How to Make Money with Your Blog
- How to Teach English Overseas
- The Ultimate Guide to Travel Hacking

And although this announcement is a bit preemptive, might as well throw it out there too. We also have and are in the process of building up on online Amazon store. (*Would like to take a moment to emphasize the page is very much under construction.*) But, the links work. So the premise behind the amazon store is if you are going to make a purchase from Amazon and you click on our link, just by that tiny click, you help support the Vagabond Way. I have so many posts and layout ideas, they are just oozing out of my head and I just can’t get them written down fast enough – both for the blog and the store link. Sometimes I feel like a cat that’s chasing the red light of a laser pointer on the wall. As soon as I can, this page will be updated, but if you are going to make a purchase from Amazon anyway, you can get a million good karma points by clicking here.

Oh yeah, and did we mention we booked out trip to Africa! More details to come later. All we’ve really done is book our overland truck tour with Intrepid Travel and order sleeping bags. So we have a lot more to do. We will be flying into Nairobi and taking two months to travel across Africa ending in Cape Town. We will be doing a lot of camping and looking for animals. This will be a whole different style of travel for us and we are excited to try it out.
