Carryoncouple climbs to a new peak


A view from our trek on the Way of St. Francis in Italy.

As the 21st century began its last year as a teenager, carryoncouple turned seven in record-setting fashion.

Our travel blog collected 8,758 views from 3,654 visitors in 2018, both eclipsing our previous record of 5,232 views by 1,561 visitors in 2013, the year we walked the Camino de Santiago.

People stopping by our blog represented 75 countries, led by the USA with 5,813 views. Canada was in second place for much of the year, but lost the No.2 title to the United Kingdom, which had 486 views, topping Canada by nine views.

Our 2012 post from Italy–Basilica Honors San Zeno–mysteriously continued to attract attention, with 91 views, but lost its 2017 top post title to another surprising choice, Coming Soon to Amazon. Was it the “coming soon” or just the word “Amazon” that attracted the clicks? Or Sue’s book cover? We remain puzzled by the record-setting (for us) 564 views of the post from many countries.

Although our numbers are humble by WordPress standards, we remain thankful to our blog followers and viewers. We hope to keep the interest going through several adventures in 2019, including another one with backpacks, to be announced.

Our favorite trip of 2018? That’s easy; see Sue’s slideshow by clicking here.

Carryoncouple thanks you for helping our blog travel to new territory in 2018. Our site has recorded nearly 5,300 views this year, surpassing our record from 2013, when we walked the Camino de Santiago. Your interest in our Way of St. Francis trek this spring exceeded all our other trips, including 181 in one day.

Since our kickoff in 2012, carryoncouple.com has recorded more than 25,000 views in 119 countries, led by the USA, the UK, Canada, Australia and Italy. We await someone in Antarctica to extend our reach to every continent.

What is our most popular post? It comes from our 2012 visit to Verona, Italy. Pictured above, our post about the Basilica di San Zeno still attracts views and has been seen nearly 700 times.

Here’s to Word Press, to nearly 400 followers, and to many more adventures!
