OTR in the NY Times

The humble OTR got a nice plug in Joe Sharkey’s column in today’s NY Times about travel blogs. 

If you’re landed on this page after reading the Times, I apologize for making you read about the column you just came from.  A bit circular, I know.  The good (?) stuff is below…


  1. “Some travel blogs are all attitude and no original research, seemingly typed by hung-over media manqués whose idea of reporting is to tumble out of bed late each morning and desperately scan the newspapers for items to make sarcastic comments about”

    that doesn’t at all ring a bell

  2. I was flattered to be called a Manque. Who wouldn’t be?

    And I don’t get out of bed late.
