Today I decided to compile a list of the top travel bloggers. These people have helped inspire my travel journey and really showcase that you can make a living out of doing something you love. Each and every one of them have their own unique philosophy on life and travel. Whether it is the backpacker, flash packer or leisure traveler; there is not one correct way to travel. They all vary in age, background and writing styles but all share one thing in common. Which is they are in my opinion the best online travel blogs. Check out the list and find some inspiration for your next trip!
Nomadic Matt– This is one of the first travel blogs I started reading and continue to read regularly. Matt provides a ton of great travel tips for backpackers of all ages. He writes to inspire people to travel better, longer and cheaper! According to Matt. “I’m here to show you that it’s possible to travel without a lot of money. People always tell me how they wished they could do what I do and travel more. I’m here to tell you that you can.”
Go, See, Write– The writer for this site, Michael, circumnavigated the entire globe without ever stepping foot on a plane. He has some great stories from this adventure and inspiring tales from his current travels. I had the chance to interview him about his travels which you can read here.
Nomadic Samuel– Sam started his Nomad life right after finishing University and is still going strong while wandering the globe. He has worked as English teacher, model, photographer, freelance writer and “as a wandering nomadic soul completely infatuated by all the splendor and woe longterm travel has to offer an individual.”
Solo Traveler– The majority of my travel has been done solo as well, it is hard to convince your friends to travel long term. Traveling by yourself might seem hard at first, but it is a really great rewarding experience. Solo Traveler is run by two great writers, both of who are seasoned travelers. They provide great tips for all travelers, but are from an older generation than most bloggers which provides a great contrasting perspective than normal.
Lee Abbamonte– At age 32 he became the youngest American to travel to every country in the world. He has been to 312 countries and is one of the world’s most traveled people. “I believe in globalization of everything including people. I believe that I am a citizen of Earth. I believe that people around the world are at their core, basically good and the same. I believe that more people should experience the world and the way traveling can open their eyes and minds to different and exciting things. I believe in just being myself. I believe in life.” – Lee Abbamonte
