Now Tzuo Hann has finished his RTW tour I need another good weblog of an ongoing tour to read.

Anyone reading one at the moment they could recommend. In a similar style to Tzuo's, funny and well written.

cheers

Jeff Kruys journal is pretty good. Maybe not as much humor as Tzuo but good reading.

Another one I'm following is Victor Weinreber's 3 year trip around the world.

I second Jeff Kruys' journal. If you want humourous and well written, try I want to be Joy's toy-boy by Leo Woodland. http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/2993 . For my money he's the best writer on CGoaB.

Jill is a cool cat. I've met her a few times up here and I always enjoy reading her blog.
