One of the world's best travel blogs, according to The Telegraph

What a pleasant surprise landed in my inbox today.   A reader has kindly taken the trouble to draw my attention to this article that ran in The Telegraph yesterday, where A Luxury Travel Blog has been shortlisted as one of the top 25 travel blogs in the world. Wow – what a wonderful surprise. Selected as ‘best for luxury’ here’s what journalist Suzy Bennett has to say:

This exhaustive guide to all things sybaritic can provide hours of escapist fun. Learn how to carry home vintage wine, where to rub shoulders with the rich and famous and what you can expect to pay for the world’s most expensive dessert ( £7,160, if you’re asking). Paul Johnson updates his site daily with entries covering destinations, tours, hotels, restaurants, bars, travel gadgets, accessories, guidebooks and clothes.

    That’s great news, Paul. I visit your blog from time to time as I know you have covered such a lot and provide so much useful travel information. I must look for a post that would be of interest to my own blog readers (home exchangers and those interested in the concept of home exchange) so I can include a link to your blog.

  3. Congratulations Paul!

  10. Hi Paul,

    wow great! Congrats! Your blog is one of my “must-read” blogs that I check and always an interesting source of ideas that I like sometimes to translate a story for my german blog readers – as I concentrate on the same topics as you do on my blog.

    I hope to meet you in the future – perhaps at the PhocusWright Blogger [email protected] next year in Berlin?
