I love reading other travel blogs in my free time. Here are some of my favourites:
Stop Having a Boring Life -Rob is a great story-teller. His daily updates, sense of humour and ability to tell it like it is create a fantastic blog.
Legal Nomads -Jodi was one of the first travel blogs that I started reading. She goes to many of the places I love (like Mongolia) and is a great resource (like when I asked about gluten-free food).
Katie Going Global - Katie is a great person on an incredibly unique adventure. If you love the former USSR (and I kind of do after being in Mongolia), check out her trip to all of the former Soviet republics.
Further Bound – I just recently found Hannah’s blog. I love following people who haven’t gone on their trip yet. I love that time before I trip that’s full of excitement and anticipation.
My Beautiful Adventures – I adore Andi! She is one of the sweetest people and I normally find that very hard to convey online. I love her blog but she is also a genuinely fantastic person, who is a great addition to the travel blogging community.
That Backpacker - Audrey and I have a lot in common. Recent university grads, and a general wanderlust. She has some great quirky stories about traveling South America, and loves engaging with the travel community.
Daniel Baylis – Daniel and I are from the same town in Canada. I was fortunate enough to meet up with him in Laos. He has a great sense of humour, and wonderful story-telling skills. If you like travel with a greater purpose, read about his year long RTW adventure travelling and volunteering.
See You Soon – I travelled with Arienne and Tristan throughout Laos and will be in Thailand with them in the future. They are pretty much experts on Korea after living there and teaching English for two years. They are currently on an extended trip throughout South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
OverYonderlust - Erica and Shaun are currently traveling in Latin America. They’ve been on the road for over 200 days now. Erica is a standout photographer and they are able to provide some great commentary on places I’m desperate to go, like Cuba.
The Planet D – Deb and Dave are a couple making a name for themselves in the greater travel community. Their site provides ample information on adventure travel, and they are expanding outside of just writing to other media.
Nomadic Samuel – Great guy and compatriot. If you love travel photography, check out his site. He’s also pretty much THE expert on teaching English abroad.
Nomadic Chick – Jeannie has a great sense of humour that shines through in her writing. I love that she is always out on some new adventure, most recently the Ultimate Train Challenge with some other awesome bloggers. I also appreciate that she is constantly addressing issues about women and travel.
Traveling Canucks - I have a certain appreciation for my fellow country(wo)men travelling the globe. Cam and Nicole are avid travellers who went on an extended RTW trip. They are settled back in Canada now, but their travel stories are timeless.
Twenty Something Travel - Steph is an all-round good writer. She is able to combine her writing skills with travel to create articles that tell both a story and provide information. She completed an RTW trip and is now exploring South America.
Dangerous Business – Amanda originally went on a long RTW trip. Recently, she’s been travelling around home.
Aussie on the Road – Check out Chris’ blog for a great sense of humour and some advice on teaching English. He also likes to claim he’s ginger, because of the beard. So we gingers must stick together!
Go Backpacking – Dave is pretty much the original travel blogger. His site evolved from personal blog, to one of the best travel resources on the web. He is a great resource and has helped to grow the travel blogging community through great initiatives like Travel Blog Success (of which I am of course a member)
Bacon is Magic – Ayngelina spent many months traveling Latin America. Her travels were comprehensive and so are her stories. She’s currently in Europe.
Beers and Beans - This is likely my favourite travel photography site. Beth and Randy are professionals and it really shows through. There are some very informative articles but I read for the photograhy.
The Lost Girls – Amanda, Holly and Jen helped get RTW travel on the map. Women in particular should check out their site, as they have female-oriented information. If you want a hard copy of their adventures, pick up a copy of their book.
Candice does the World – Let me just start by saying that Candice is a Newfie. This automatically means she has a great sense of humour. She’s often based out of Canada but she’s a writer (and a really good one at that), so the articles are always great.
Suzy Guese – Suzy travels mainly to Europe. Europe was the first place I ever traveled to, so there is a certain amount of love there. She is another person that I would quality as an unbelievable writer and storyteller. She’s also a fellow redhead, with a similar temperament and sense of humour.
Adventurous Kate - I loved reading Kate’s posts about her trip in South East Asia when I was preparing for mine. She’s now in Europe. If you love to laugh, follow Kate!
Tourism and Travel Guide – They’ve a great site together that still in the beginning stages. It’s a great resource on a variety of destinations.
The Longest Way Home - Check it out for some great photography and if you love overland travel (like I do).
Around the World in 80 Jobs - Follow Turner as he travels around, doing exactly what the title implies.
