Over the weekend I had the great pleasure of interviewing Anthony Bianco, also known as “The Travel Tart“.
After a couple of technical glitches on my end and an error calculating the time difference between Arizona and Brisbane, Australia (which I finally worked out using an online time zone converter tool ) , I finally got an opportunity to chat with this interesting Travel Blogger.
Anthony got started in travel writing by providing some travel articles for an online Australian Family Travel Agency . Having enjoyed the experience, he decided to parlay his writing talent into his own travel blog, which has — in a short time — garnered a respectable number of readers of his blog and a sizeable Twitter following , primarily due to his uniquely humorous take on the often funny side of travel and travel destinations.
Have a listen (and maybe a few laughs)!
Meet Anthony Bianco:
The Travel Tart (sometimes known as Anthony Bianco) is a self-proclaimed travel addict who will find any feeble excuse to go traveling.
Anthony discovered he really enjoyed traveling the world when he was sent to a former war zone for work – Kosovo – as his first venture outside of
Australia and New Zealand. This created a habit of visiting places that most package tourists avoid like the plague. He has since travelled to almost 40 countries over six continents – nowhere near enough!
While travelling, he likes risking his life by utilising barely road-worthy forms of transport such as African mini-buses, suicidal Cairo cabs, and flatulent camels.
His foray into the travel writing world happened by accident – his dodgy friends thought it was a good idea to convert his humorous travel emails into something more substantial – like articles and books.
Anthony likes to write about the funny, offbeat, and downright strange aspects of world travel today, which can be seen on his website at http://www.thetraveltart.com . He also guest blogs for other sites if people are silly enough to take up his offer.
