IgoUgo has registered a slew of fantastic new members these last couple of months, and what better way to welcome them than by spotlighting some of their travels? Join us in cheering these 14 notable newcomers, and in stealing their trip ideas (we’ve been doing it for weeks).

TianjinPaul
A UK native and recent transplant from China to Turkey, there’s no shortage of travel stories for TianjinPaul; find them among his growing list of excellent trip journals.

Niiko
Niiko, too, imparts advice from various posts around the world with reviews both salty and sweet.

soulcougher
Born in England, living in Philadelphia, and breathing Celtic football, this fan is frank about his weirdest travel habit: “If Celtic is playing I have to find a place or club that shows the games. My travel plans stand still for those two hours and then maybe a few pints after.”

Anne Patrone
This mom’s color-coded systems for traveling with her family have paid off with trips like a great escape to Cooperstown, NY.

Fotorunn
This Norway-based traveler has a sharp eye for (sometimes quirky) photos.

ShariV
Unique among IgoUgo members, ShariV always travels with lemon juice and is the proud parent of Ohio State University’s mascot, Brutus. Her first post describes her unique perspective on game day.

henrik_rrb
Also keen on game days? This Swede, who shares a review of Italy’s biggest football stadium and some wild fan photos.

rb24
Judging by rb24’s favorite travel quote--“It’s five o’clock somewhere”--we think the Nashville denizen found a way to keep warm during a trip to frozen Chicago.

lousyfocus
Northeast Pennsylvania is lousyfocus’ focus; we particularly fell for his fall foliage photos.

sganus
“Corpus Christi and Padre Island in the winter? That’s what we thought.” So begins an sganus family adventure that includes New Year’s Eve horseback riding, the USS Lexington, the Texas State Aquarium, and the South Texas Botanical Gardens. We can’t wait to see what summer will bring!

graciej311
Goal-oriented graciej311 makes her IgoUgo debut with a great tip for finding amazing views in San Francisco.

AussielivinginJapan
This former English teacher is currently sharing fabulous photos of Japan’s cities, nature, and businessmen playing with Legos in the street.

Parisienne-in-ny
There are a lot of lines in this former (or forever?) Parisienne’s profile that make us smile, but we especially like this travel tip: “I use the cold bottles or cans from the minibar on my eyes to reduce the puffiness when I first awake...it really works! It’s free and efficient and many people I have shared a room with think it’s weird!”

jwonder
We have to say “wow” at jwonder’s first photos, taken in Mexico. And a little birdie told us that she’s heading south again soon; we can’t wait to hear about it!
