I've been follow Andy at HoboTraveller.com  What impresses me about Andy (aside from him traveling for 8 years) is that he goes where the action is and is trying hard to go and document history using his blog, as it happens.  He was recently in Isreal for the gaza pull-out and is now trying really hard to get to Niger to document the famine there.

I have a lot of respect for that kind of travel.  Being green ourselves, I don't think we'll be looking for human suffering and newsworthy events this time around.  But, I could see myself, at some point in the future, being drawn to places on the globe where history is happening and hoping to document it in my own way. 

For now though, I'd be scared to roll into Niger during a famine.
