5 Travel bloggers we love

01st February, 2017
Reading travel blogs is a good way to get some inside knowledge on an area before you travel there. We love catching up on the latest travel stories from travel bloggers around the web. Travel blogging is about creating and joining an online community, where writers can share their experiences, tips and stories with their readers.

Capturing experiences and spreading the knowledge of what to see and do whilst traveling, whether it is a blog, video or review. Blogging doesn’t just help the readers discover new things, but it in fact lets the bloggers remember the most cherished parts of their travelling journey.

Below we have listed five of our favourite travel bloggers:

Mapping Megan

Mapping Megan is a blog run by Megan and her husband Mike. In this blog they post numerous travel guides and tips from their trips around the world. As well as their fantastic and insightful posts, they also take some beautiful photos whilst on their travels. There are so many great posts throughout the blog, it is hard to pick a favourite!

The Travelista

The Travelista is a luxury travel blog written by Jess Gibson. Jess’s blog has tonnes of fantastic posts about her travels throughout the world, as well as reviews and a ‘shop my style’ section. We particularly love her posts about her visit to Florence, where she travelled with her boyfriend. From her experience in Florence, she created a handy travel guide for her readers, along with some lovely photos. Jess has won a number of awards for her travel blog, and rightfully so! Jess’s blog is beautifully laid out, and her posts are a real insight into what it is like to travel.

Luxury Travel Diva

Luxury Travel Diva is a luxury worldwide travel and lifestyle blog. Marie, who is from the UK and writes number of beautifully presented blog posts, reviews, tips and experiences through different parts of the world. One of our favourite posts is Venice – Live Like a Venetian, as Marie has some beautiful photos of the canals and coloured buildings.

Marie also has a little list of travel rules which she abides by:

-“Travel in style! Essential but not necessarily expensive. Luxury does not necessarily involve money a moonlit walk along a beach is the ultimate in luxury for most city dwellers and is FREE.”

”Stress-free. Life is too short – make everything as uncomplicated as possible. We all feel stressed by different things in life, make sure you address the issues that affect you while travelling. For me, this means flying business or first class (I’m too old for budget flights, unless they are very short!). Splurge on the most extravagant hotel or villa that you can afford, it will be worth every penny.”

”Enjoy! The MOST important.”
