Thinking of taking a trip and heading away for a well-earned break? If so, then do you have any idea of where you’d like to head to? If you’re looking for inspiration on where to go and what to see, these top travel bloggers are definitely worth checking out. The bloggers we’re about to look at are amongst the best of the best. Here are 7 of the best travel bloggers you should definitely check out.
First on our list we have A Broken Backpack. This blog is by travel blogger Mel, who has been operating abroad since the summer of 2014. A Broken Backpack is the ultimate travel blog for anybody thinking of heading away on holiday, but who perhaps doesn’t quite know where to head to. Melissa Giroux is a digital nomad who travels the world, visiting some of the most spectacular places on our wonderful planet. Her blogs are detailed, yet informal and exciting at the same time. Originally from Canada, Melissa’s first foray into travel blogging began during a hitchhiking trip to the Canadian Rockies. She then spent two years in Australia before heading to Asia, the UK, and Asia once more. Her blogs are interesting because they aren’t just generic travel blogs, she covers political topics, controversial topics, and slightly more leftfield content. If this sounds good to you, be sure to look at some of her content.
Up next we have The Blog Abroad. This travel blog is perfect for those of you who are perhaps slightly more spiritual than usual, and who enjoy positive thinking and good vibes. From the welcome page of the blog, you just know reading it will lift your spirits and improve your mood. The Blog Abroad has been featured in numerous publications, including: BuzzFeed, Essence, The Huffington Post, The Oprah Magazine, and plenty more besides. It’s particularly useful if you’re planning a trip and aren’t quite sure where to begin, as the Travel Resources section will prove especially useful.
Lili’s Travel Plans is a blog that you should read if you’re not just simply thinking of a getaway, but are thinking of embarking on your own travel adventure. The work of Lili, Lili’s Travel Plans is a blog that’s fairly new. In August of 2017, she decided to book herself a one-way ticket to Tanzania. She sold everything she didn’t need, packed her cases and off she went. After years of being stuck in a rut and feeling as if something was missing, she did what most people can only dream of. Lili’s Travel Plans is her story. In this blog, you’ll learn all about her adventures, you’ll hear about and see the people she meets and you’ll see the real, unfiltered world of travel in Tanzania. Needless to say, if Tanzania is particularly interesting or appealing to you, you’ll love this blog.

Along Dusty Roads is the work of Andrew and Emily. The blog itself was conceived back in 2014 after the couple made the brave decision to book a one-way flight to Mexico.

Years later and they have established themselves as two of the best travel bloggers in the business. Along Dusty Roads has won multiple awards and is a fantastic read. It’s great because they cover so many topics. From day trips to Cartagena, to winter visits to Chernobyl, you could spend hours reading their content and still find yourself as engaged and invested as you were at the start.
