Monday Muse: Introducing Armchair Backpacker!

Hi everyone! Monday Muse is here, bringing you cheerfulness to (hopefully) help lightening up your Monday! :)

First of all, I'm very excited for today's Monday Muse! SQUEAL! SCREAM! SWOON! Hilda proudly brings you...


Armchair Backpacker is an event where bloggers from all around the world doing guest post every Monday about daily lives in their country. Just like a backpacker, we'll explore the world they live in! You might think that your daily life is boring, but to others, it might look very exotic and beautiful! We're going to learn about the food, the transportation, the dress... basically, anything you would like others to see about your country! Reading guest posts from bloggers all around the world would feel like exploring the land yourself. We all will be backpacker, only for now, we'll be doing it in our comfortable armchair!


Starting next week, every Monday I will bring you different bloggers from different countries. Armchair Backpacker will last until the the last week of summer, where I'll do a giveaway with one choice of road-trip books you can pick! :)


In this blog, Catch the Lune, of course. ;)


Bloggers from all around the world! (YAY for internet who make this possible! :P)


I figured out that summer (or winter for Australians! Don't worry, I haven't forgotten you guys! ♥) is supposed to be fun! But I know that not everyone is in summer break right now and you may feel utterly tired right now, so I'm going to bring holiday to you! ♥ Armchair Backpacker will be fun posts that I hope can cure your wanderlust for now! Who knows, one day you might visit the country featured in this event for real? At least the guest post from the amazing bloggers will help you plan your visit! ;)

The last word...

I hope you'll take a journey with me! I can't promise you to be the best companion ever, but you can always count on me to have your back! Challenge the road. Open your soul. Let's get lost! :)

PS: This is random, but here's Pusheen to cheer up your day! :D

  7. Love those little cats. Too funny.

    But this is such a great idea!! I know I love seeing where different bloggers are from so it should be cool to see what it's actually LIKE to be there! I know I don't find where I love all that interesting, but I suppose it might be for someone in another country.
