Before I began my own blog, I spent hours upon hours scrolling through other’s collections of travel tips, stunning photographs and worldly journals. Unlike a guide book or internet research, a blog has the unique ability to allow you to see the world from an insider. Nothing sparks one’s wanderlust quite like being sucked into another’s exciting, scary and inspiring adventure. Personally, my favorite blogs are the ones where it’s difficult to tell where the story telling ends, and trip advice begins. The strangers you might meet, the secret cafes you stumble upon or the last minute expedition up a mountain are all part of the behind-the-scenes look you can get out of a blog. Although there are millions of travel blogs in the world, and that might even be on the low end, these are the bloggers I’ve been following for years (years!). Not only have they sparked me to drop everything and see the world, but find the courage to create a blog in order to inspire others the way they’ve inspired me.
