5 Blogs every traveler should follow

Written by Brendan Ihmig

Over the last few years I have been blessed with being able to travel to various countries for both work and pleasure. This has meant packing and unpacking luggage, spending countless hours waiting in airports, even more hours in-flight, seeing wonderful places, meeting amazing people trying new things and tasting new dishes. I have experiencing a whole host of pros and cons of traveling and yet, every time before I begin preparing for a another trip, I tend to feel like I need to learn more or pick up some extra tips.

There are many travel blogs to find all sorts of travel information, travel hacks and tips for travelers and then you can Google for just about anything and everything. Here are a few travel blogs which I highly recommend and these are five I am following at the moment and think you should too.

Please note that these blogs listed below are in no particular order

Nomadic Matt

It will be a tough search to find a more informative and helpful blog about traveling on a budget than Matt Kepnes's blog called 'Nomadic Matt'. He is an experienced traveler and a best-seller author, and his book 'How to Travel the World on $50 a Day' (BBC Travel calls it “the bible for budget travelers”) is a must read for any budget traveler.

On the website you will find travel tips, destination guides, travel hacks and resources useful for planning a trip. The travel blog features great guides, destination lists, travel insights, answers to important questions and loads of general advice for traveling on a budget.

Jetlag & Mayhem

From what equipment to pack to trip ideas, Jetlag & Mayhem has got it covered. Jetlag & Mayhem was a winner in the 2014 Blogger Awards and ranked in the top 15 UK Family Traveler Blogger.
