Editor’s Pick

This week’s Editor’s Pick was submitted by Mike & Luci from 1000 Places to Fight Before you Die.  Their post Why I Love a Traveling Girl definitely struck a cord with me and likely will with other solo travelers.  Long-term travelers are a different breed and finding someone to live that life with can be incredibly challenging.  Mike and Luci said about this post: [It is] one of our fave posts. It explains the real reasons why we travel together. Happy travels!
