SOUTH DEERFIELD, MA–GoNOMAD.com, the travel website based in South Deerfield Massachusetts, has selected the top ten travel stories for 2012. The website, founded in 2000, published hundreds of travel articles last year and only the very best made it to the top ten list.
Editor Max Hartshorne said that the choices were tough again this year, since so many great stories were submitted. The selection process takes into account many elements including the quality of the descriptions, the uniqueness of the destination, the imagery of the writing and the excellence of the photography.
“Travel photos are such a key part of what GoNOMAD offers, a big part of our decisions about the top ten come down to the images, how well the writer conveys the places they are writing about. Once again we’re thrilled to be able to publish such great writing and that we continue to attract top notch writers who want to be a part of our site.”
