About a week ago, I posted an entry in which I listed my top 5 favorite travel vloggers and I thought why not do the same for travel blogs? Depending on the blogger, many of them have much more information out there and can be just as helpful, if not more helpful. In no particular order…
World Travlr. It’s not exactly a secret how much I love Breezy’s photography and seeing pictures of her travels and reading about her adventures. Her blog is the first I came across that REALLY educated me and made me realize that travel doesn’t have to be for the rich. I have heard that a million times, but it never really registered until I read this post about how she does it for (almost) free. It was ultimately that post that pushed me into actually saving for the future I want. This blog is easily the one I go to time and time again, even if it’s just to reread old posts and admire her work.
Nomadic Matt. I know I mentioned Matt Kepnes in the last list, but I feel this list would really lack something if I didn’t include him as well. Matt is probably THE most popular travel blogger, he teaches travelers how to budget their expenses. He has a book out called “How to Travel the World on $50 A Day” which I actually just got today and am in the process of reading it. I’m only about 50 pages in, but I can already say it is a must read for ANYONE who wants to travel more but don’t think they have the time or money. He has also written a bunch of travel guides, along with other books. On his blog, he covers basically anything and everything you would want to know about travel, giving tips and tricks to finding a good travel credit card, finding good flights, buying good insurance, and much, much more. He truly wants to help others find the means to do as he’s doing, which is such an awesome thing.
True Nomads. This blog is really interesting. Justin’s niche is not only traveling, but also scuba diving and underwater photography. As someone who aspires to travel and is obsessed with the idea of scuba diving. (Literally, it’s like #1 on my bucket list and I think I might try to find a way to actually live under the sea once I actually do learn…) His underwater photography is simply beautiful. He’s also got a lot of lists of places to go/dive, reviews on travel gear, accommodations and travel sites, and more. All in all, he’s a cool dude.
Expert Vagabond. Matthew Karsten is an adventurer and travel photographer. He loves to take all the risks. I actually think it was his blog where I first learned about El Caminito Del Rey in Spain, noted for being the world’s most dangerous hike. Of course, as soon as I learned about it, I knew it was so crazy that I just had to add it to mu bucket list. On his blog, you get to read all about his adventures, along with photos, and a bunch of really helpful resources.
Hopscotch The Globe. Kristen Sarah is another blogger I know I mentioned in the list of vloggers, but she really is good at what she does and extremely helpful. On her blog, you will find the same things she makes videos about, but sometimes way more in depth. She aims to inspire and teach her readers/viewers about the places she goes and the things she sees and so much more.
