FROM THE ARCHIVES: Sometimes the Old Ways are the Best Ways. San Bartolomé, Ecuador would have been unremarkable except for the sculptures. Giant guitars paraded across the plaza toward the church, hinting that something about this town was very different.

Man on the Lam just published a list of the top 100 posts by travel bloggers with the largest number social media shares. With the rising popularity of social media, I thought this was an interesting way to look at travel blog content. Some fascinating articles here: http://manonthelam.com/top-100-travel-blog-posts-of-2014-by-social-media-shares/comment-page-1/
From "listicles" to long reads, and from food to photography, the articles on this list of the most shared travel blog posts of 2014 all have one thing in common -- they'll make you want to pack your bags and go!

Story
Tagline
Connecting the World Through Storytelling
Introduction
After years of working 70 hours a week at jobs I detested, I felt like the proverbial "hole in the donut" - solid on the outside, but empty on the inside. Searching for meaning in my life, I abandoned a successful but unsatisfying career and set out on a six-month solo backpacking trip around the world, during which I pursued my true passions of travel, writing, and photography. My travel blog, http://holeinthedonut.com, was initially begun as a means to document my round-the-world trip, but by the time I returned to the States I was determined to remake myself into a travel writer, therefore I continued to travel and write about my destinations. These days I am on the road more than 60% of the time and I write about destinations, people I meet along the way, and the spiritual lessons that come from travel. It's all about being true to oneself.
