Fighting Couple Named Tops by USA Today

We love to travel!  More than our love of travel, we love the chance to encourage other couples to travel together.  Our little blog gives us the chance to share and encourage other couples to get out and see the world together.   When we were notified a few weeks ago that our blog had been named one of twenty best travel blogs by USA Today and we were floored.

What happened next amazed us.

Our friends, family and Fighting Couple followers rallied and drove us to the top of the pack!  We were amazed and humbled.  The list of nominees included a number of outstanding bloggers.  Many of who we call virtual friends.  We received many words of encouragement from fellow nominees.  The travel blogging community is filled with kind and caring wanderers.  We had a fun and enlightening conversation with our friends Gordon and Paula of Contented Traveler.

Thanks for putting us on top!

Thanks for putting us on top!

On the morning of the announcement, we kept hitting refresh to see the results.  We were sooo nervous!  The texts and messages flooded in once it was announced that we had won!  We were shocked.  Our local newspaper asked for an interview, and we end up on the front page of the Idaho Statesman.  We don’t have the most twitter or facebook followers.  We don’t do the whole blogging thing full time.   That said, our readers and friends are rabid!  They were on a mission to keep us on top, and we couldn’t be more thankful.

Needless to say, our hearts are full of gratitude to the many friends and followers who voted for us.   We offer our congrats to the top couple bloggers!  Little things like this remind us why we write.  From both us:  Thank You!

Keep Fighting!

    Congratulations to Mike and Luci for this big win. They are both generous as writers and also to we fellow travel bloggers. I think the conversation went something like, ‘wtf were we nominated’. Mike and Luci are always there to ask such questions and this is why we are so happy for them. Great people and a great blog.
