One of my favorite blogs is “Art of Traveling.” It is written by Emile, who is from the Netherlands. He travels with his wife and two children everywhere. The last I heard they were headed to New York. I’m dying to know what they thought of New York. Did they like it? Not like it? Being from New York, I’m hoping he and his family enjoyed New York. Emile, I’m sure, will be his usual self and not say anything that will insult anybody.
I love the traveling part because I love to travel, but what I like most about Emile’s post is his humanity. It comes through in his blog. He takes his children traveling everywhere because he wants them to be world citizens. He doesn’t want them to grow up being afraid of different races. And he’s recently began to take his Spanish seriously because he wants to be able to communicate with people who speak Spanish and really know what they’re about. He not only wants his children to be world citizens, but be humane. His children are lucky to have Emile as an example of what it is to be a world citizen and humane.
If I’ve had a bad day and feel that humanity is not worth a damn, reading one of Emile’s blogs always set me on the right path of giving humanity another chance.
His photos of the places he visits are usually outstanding. He seems to be able to show exactly what being in the place he’s visiting feels like. His photos usually leave me wanting to pack my bags and take off to the place he just visited.
So visit his blog (http://vandenboomen.WordPress.com) and read “Act of Traveling” for yourself. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
I also love, love reading “Freshly Pressed” by WordPress. It is the page that features different bloggers with a variety of topics. I guess you have to log in to http://WordPress.com to get it.

good idea to feature blogs of other writers!
I wish it had been my idea. It was a suggestion by WordPress. One of the best ideas they’ve had. Thanks for your comment anyway.
