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!

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?
