Best Expat Blog? You Decide!

26 February 2009 People & Interviews 22

Yucatan Living is one of five nominees in Lonely Planet's Best Expat Blog category. This is the first year Lonely Planet is doing a contest of this sort, and needless to say, being nominated is an honor, but winning would be even better!

If you think that Yucatan Living deserves this sort of acclaim (you do, don't you?), then please click here or on that blue badge on the upper left side of the page, and go to Lonely Planet's poll and vote!

There are some wonderful blogs nominated in all the categories... you could spend an hour easily (we just did...) going through them and exploring. They are all travel related, of course, and bound to make you start stroking your passport lovingly, eyes glazed over as you dream of giraffes and beignets and scuba diving and mountain roads and high speed trains and colorful saris and palm trees and... you see? There we go again. It doesn't take much, does it?

So please, take a minute from your daydreams or your work and check that little box next to "".

Gracias. Muy amable! and Vaya Bien!

DATELINE April 2 2009: Well, we didn't win. Those brilliant expats from Spain took the prize. We really are, though, happy to have been nominated. And we thank all our readers and their friends and family for their votes!

    I will be moving to Tepakan, Yucatan soon and found your site to not only give me incredible info but it has allowed me to feel as if I already have a connection with the area that would have otherwise taken me many months to make. I used to live in Cozumel many moons ago, and it would have been wonderful to have had a site like yours then.I have voted........Good luck, you deserve to win!
