My Favourite Travel Blogs

My Favourite Travel Blogs

I read and follow a lot of other blogs. Some because they’re written by inspiring people, others because they’re thought-provoking or visually beautiful, and others simply because I like them. I’ve been lucky enough to meet a number of these wonderful bloggers in person and I’m always looking for new blogs to discover, so please comment below with your own favourites!

  • Reporter Per Caso (in Italian) – A fellow winner of Discover Padova’s social media competition, Barbara writes about her travels


Compiling this list has made me realise that I don’t follow many male bloggers (the men I do follow haven’t made it into this list of my favourites). Male travel bloggers do exist, I know a fair few, so does this indicate a gender divide in internet content? It’s an interesting topic. Do you follow a mix of male & female, or like me do you subconsciously favour one gender in particular?

And which blogs do you follow in other languages?


  1. omg! Virginiaaaa grazie mille per avermi inclusa! 😀 Sono felicissima! Buona partenza, ho letto l’articolo sul prossimo viaggio in Asia! Prendi un po’ di sole anche per me, qui nella TUA Inghilterra non ce n’è abbastanza 😛 😛 😛


    • Certo che ti ho incluso – il tuo blog e’ fantastico! Grazie Annalisa e mi dispiace per il brutto tempo nel mio paese – ma spero che ti stia divertendo comunque!
