Sunday, November 21, 2010 names the 50 most inspirational travelers on Twitter

Online travel community recently named the Top 50 People on Twitter who Inspire the Travel Industry.

I was pleased to discover I made the cut! "LeslieTravel" is listed alongside such travel luminaries as Evelyn Hannon, the editor of, and JD Andrews of Evelyn has over 9,000 Twitter followers while 40,000+ people follow JD.

I'm honored to appear alongside these writers and the other bloggers on GotSaga's list. Many of the featured blogs have personally inspired me, including (for its high quality photography and design) and Jeremy Branham's column on (for his ability to produce interesting, well researched travel posts every day).

I began travel blogging during my round the world trip in 2008 and haven't looked back since. I love sharing my experiences, mishaps and tips with other travelers. I'm pleased to discover that my pieces have inspired people to live their dreams and travel the world!
