My Favourite Travel Blogs

Travel bloggers.
There’s an abundance of them, with more joining this little keyboard club everyday.
An abundance of stories, pictures and unique perspectives just waiting to be discovered.

I’m currently sat in bed with a bit of a headache perusing Bloglovin; catching up on where people have been in the world. It’s like my very own desktop travel. Except instead of a desktop, I’m in bed with the laptop. I should probably be planning my own adventures to be honest, because S and I have ten days off next week and we still haven’t picked a destination. Oops.

But a few days ago I wrote about why rest is so important, and tonight; I’m taking my own advice.

I’m currently sat in my pyjamas with a freshly washed and moisturised face, my hair shoved back in some semblance of a pony tail and I’m nestled underneath a duvet plus two blankets. I don’t know about you but I have a tendency to get cold whenever I’m over tired. Like my body is protesting and saying “be warm,”, “be cosy”, “GODAMNIT GO TO SLEEP”. There’s ocean music playing through the speaker to my left and a softly dimmed light to my right. I could not be comfier if I tried.

I’m chilled, and I estimate that in roughly fifteen minutes I will be asleep. But it’s day 23 of the challenge I set myself to blog everyday, and I refuse to be defeated in my self imposed challenge. But I also don’t have the energy to create the topics I want to write about today. I’m going to assume that it’s because the three cups of coffee I have had today have worn off, but who can be sure. All I know is that I’m tired and making sentences is hard right now. But regardless of where the fatigue has originated from, it’s here. So I thought I’d lay off telling my stories tonight, and introduce you to a few of my favourite story tellers instead. I’m not going to tell their stories for them, I’m just going to tell you why I enjoy reading about their adventures.

The Blog Abroad

I only recently started reading The Blog Abroad. I found Gloria’s account on Facebook a few months ago and have absolutely no idea how I came across it, but I am so glad that I did. She was one of the first travel accounts that I found online that actually told a story on social media, and not just a short caption to accompany an image – and her website is no different.

In The Frow 

Victoria Magrath is, in my eyes, a blogging superstar. I hate fangirling, because peoples are just peoples, but as far as female empowerment goes; I’m 110% rooting for her. Her blog continues to evolve as she does and whilst her niche is very much fashion, she never sticks to one topic. Sure her blog predominantly covers fashion (her style is immaculate) but it also covers thoughts on life, female empowerment and the backdrops to her outfits are always captured so beautifully.

The Londoner 

The Londoner was the first blog I ever started reading.
I found Rosie’s blog searching for a recipe back in 2012 and I’ve followed along ever since. Rosie may be a Londoner, but to be honest it appears she spends more time outside of London, than she does in it because dang that woman’s always travelling. I adore the way she writes though; no matter where she travels to she manages to write about it in a way that doesn’t preach about how you should travel, but brings you along on the journey with her.

Hand Luggage Only 

The words, the pictures, the travel. Yay and Lloyd encapsulate the beauty of places so effortlessly it’s hard not to want to jump through the screen and tag along with them.

There are so many more travel blogs that I read and love, but my eyes are starting to drop so I’m going to have to stop at four with the promise to come back and update this page with more in the future.
But until then, tell me; what are your favourite travel blogs?
