A lot of people may have dreams of traveling to exotic destinations and beautiful places, but become hesitant due to many factors. Here are some of the reasons why people are afraid to travel:
- Cost: Going to another country may incur sky-high expenses, leaving you with empty pockets and credit card payment dues when you return home.
- Unfamiliarity with language: The difficulty in understanding the language of your destination country may leave you either shortchanged, lost, and in danger.
- Safety: Being in a foreign country – or even an undiscovered neighboring town – may be dangerous for visitors, especially if they aren’t familiar with local culture.
Although a number of cases may confirm the truth of these fears, these are just few and far between. In a general perspective, there’s really nothing to be afraid of in going to some place outside your home. For one, people of this generation are more interconnected with each other – especially with the rise of social media – and the tourism industry has become a lot more welcoming and affordable.
Besides, are you really going to miss out on what the world has to offer for travelers? Here are some of the best reasons why you should start packing for your next holiday:
- Food: Who doesn’t like to try out a different kind of cuisine?
- Views: Some of the places outside your home city may have astoundingly spectacular landscapes waiting to be discovered.
- Culture: Get to know more about how other people live their lives in their local setting.

I’m not an avid reader of blogs actually, as it seems lots of people seem to go to the same places as everyone else on repeat (Chiang Mai, Australia, Western Europe), all amazing regions, with awesome things to see, but there’s only so many “Coffee shops in Chiang Mai” or “Best beaches in Australia” posts that I can read! In that respect, I really like expertvagabond.com, Matt creates cool content, and he really travels and does cool things. Janet from journalistontherun.com is great too, it’s nice to see women really traveling, and not just maintaining the standard status quo of travel bloggers, she’s a great writer too! Finally, I’d say Mark from migrationology.com, he’s a great guy, knows his niche and nails it regularly. Those 3 are authentic, professional and interesting. Great blogs!

http://uncorneredmarket.com/ – if there were more travelers like the bloggers behind Uncornered Market, who are so mindful and culturally empathetic, tourism would be in a much better state.
Anna Phipps – Global Gallivanting
It’s so hard to choose as there are so many great blogs but the kind of things that I love to read about are off beat and adventurous places and one of my favourite blogs is Nomadasaurus http://www.nomadasaurus.com/ – the tales of Lesh and Jazza, an Australian couple who get up to all sorts of adventurous including some pretty epic overlanding trips.
I also really love reading about feisty solo female travellers and love reading about the adventures of Alice at Teacake Travels http://www.teacaketravels.com/ Alice has loads of tips on funding your travels through teaching English abroad and tips for solo female travellers in some more unusual destinations – I especially loved reading about her solo trip to Bangladesh.
I also love reading about Joao Leitao’s adventures on his blog Nomadic Revelations http://www.joaoleitao.com/motivation/best-travel-experiences/ There isn’t much Joao hasn’t done from attending a triple Berber marriage in the Sahara Desert to exploring Antarctica to living with tribes in the Amazon and loads of epic road trips and crazy rallies through less travelled countries.

Hecktic Travels is another great blog. They won the National Geographic Traveler of the Year award a few year’s back – and do an amazing job covering off the housesitting market around the world – http://www.hecktictravels.com.
Travels with Baggage is another favourite – part lifestyle, part travel – and always with an edge and a dash of humour – http://www.jodyrobbins.com.

Anneliese Delgado – Abroad in Colombia
Charles McCool – McCool Travel
Pizza in Motion is one of my favorites. Unlike most (or all) of the other points blogs, Ed is not constantly shilling credit card offers as the latest, greatest, must have card to get. He lists current travel deals, points opportunities, his own trip reports (enough donut pictures, JK), and more.
Blonde Brunette Travel is fun to read. Yes, these sisters seem to always be somewhere (jealous) but they are playfully informative and I love that.
Duke Stewart Writes is a new favorite. His writing is sincere and thoughtful, and the photography is appealing.
Miguel – Travelsauro
Those are great adventure travel blogs. 🙂
.Hi, I’m Miguel, adventure traveler, diver and hiking lover. I have been traveling the world for the last five years, always trying to explore and hike some of the most remote regions.
Jolene and Andrzej – Wanderlust Storytellers
World Of Wanderlust – Brooke and her inspiring story of her travelling lifestyle is what encouraged us to change our own patterns of living from a pretty routine work oriented life to one of part time travel! We bought her book and decided to start following our own dream.
The Blonde Abroad – Kiersten is one of my favourite bloggers and instagrammers as I love her fun loving personality that shines through her photos and videos.
Travel with Bender – The Benders is also family travellers, originally from Australia (like us). They now manage to live a nomadic lifestyle and have travelled to well over 60 countries. Whilst their children are still young and not in school yet (unlike our two eldest daughters), we find it very inspiring to watch and read about their journey.
We are a crazy fun-loving family of 5. Andrzej, the Dad of the family was born and bred in Poland.
Fabio Virgi – Fab Meets World
Vagabrothers.com: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCa1WbVCkTqd5ecG6G2adIow – I love the way two brothers have gone on a travel adventure; it’s something I wish I could do with my siblings! The quality of their videos is fantastic and the way they find interesting/quirky things to do everywhere they go makes it super interesting to watch.
Eight Miles from Home: https://www.youtube.com/user/8milesfromhome/featured –
I’ve been following this couple since they were bouncing around Thailand with their dog Eden last year. They create these awesome cinematic videos (in vlog format) so that you get a real glimpse into their day-to-day experience in the country. Now, they’ve decided to relocate to the north of Portugal which is exciting for me considering I’m both Portuguese and contemplating the move there myself! Watching their content feels authentic and very useful, since you get to see what it’s really like to be there.
Psychotraveller.com: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfBczdzN3Rf86e7liQYbZRg – As the name suggests, Ali is a little bit psycho (I joke). She’s got a very fun and quirky camera personality which makes for great watching, and I love the way she can make the most mundane subject that little bit more fun with her personality. She’s now travelling in south east Asia while writing her book which is really cool.
Karolina & Patryk – KarolinaPatryk
Jacqui Cooks – The Jax Blog
My first 2, I’m sure everyone has heard of:
Mr Scott Eddy – he is not really a travel blogger but more of an entrepreneur, and digital nomad like myself who happens to travel and blog about it. He is super friendly and responsive on social media. He is inspiring and someone to aspire to, for myself.
Nomadic Matt – This is another American blogger, famed for his NY bestelling book “How to travel the world on $50 dollars a day”. What I love about Matt is his practical down to earth FREE travel advice and ton of resources on his website to travel like he did. He shows travelers that you don’t need to be rich to see the world.
Lastly, I’m quite fond of fellow South African, Anje Rautenbach’s “Going Somewhere Slowly” blog. It’s all about slow travel and her time in Korea. I have never been to Korea so reading about a completely different culture is fascinating to me. I love her sense of humour and easy-to-read writing style. One you start reading her blog you’ll immediately fall in love with her.
Facebook | Twitter | Instagram
Steve Biggs – Biggsy Travels
The Travelhack – http://thetravelhack.com
Sound, sensible advice with an easy to digest layout.
Vicky Flip Flop Travels – http://vickyflipfloptravels.com

Borders of Adventure – http://www.bordersofadventure.com
I seek out her more “out of the ordinary” posts which give me unique ideas for future travelling escapades.
Di and Ade – All Abroad
There are so many great travel blogs out there; so often we’re blown away by the quality of sites and the time and dedication people put into their blogs, not to mention the adventures these bloggers are having! We generally tend to follow quite a few different bloggers on social media and click on links to stories that we find interesting – maybe we’ve been there, maybe we’re planning to go there, or maybe it’s just a location for our bucket list! But the following sites stand out.
Thedropoutdiaries.com – This is one of the very first blogs we started following. We knew Barbara Adam before she dropped out of the rat race so she’s been inspiring us for years now! She has a great way of combing travel stories with regular life stories. Her writing is lovely as are her photos and she gets to do some really interesting stuff. We don’t normally follow family travel blogs, but this site has a bit of everything thrown in.
Mel365.com – Ok, so this site is a little Melbourne centric, but that’s not why we love it – promise! I find the site provides great advice on travel photography and equipment. Even though Ade is a photographer, it’s always interesting to get other views, plus the site contains some really helpful reviews on equipment. At the moment we’re in the market for a compact camera that takes awesome pics (I want to do away with the DSLR when I’m travelling without Ade, but don’t want to sacrifice too much image quality) and I’ve found this site really useful with my decision making process. And the photos are beautiful – they make us want to explore more of our own backyard, as well as the wider world, with a good camera of course!
Di and Ade, travel bloggers at AllAbroadAU and part time international tour hosts.
Erika Bisbocci – Erika’s Travels
Jett and Kathryn – The Nomadic Tribes
Always difficult to limit our selection of favourite travel bloggers, but here are three individuals who never fail to inspire or entertain.
Stephanie Be a.k.a. Travel Break (http://www.travel-break.net/) –
While there are a lot of great travel & lifestyle bloggers in the world, Stephanie’s star continues to shine brightly as being one of a favourites. Highly informative and entertaining, her website provides great content infused with Stephanie’s infectiously honest personality. She’s a vibrant Latino and proud of it. We simply love her work and authenticity.
Anna Lysakowska a.k.a. Anna Everywhere (http://annaeverywhere.com/) –
Anna was among the first travel bloggers we connected with when we started our blog, The Nomadic Tribes – Travel & Living The Life Fantastic, in late July 2015. Anna writes from the heart and we were immediately struck by her courage to write about personal matters with intelligence and grace. She also does seems to be everywhere which makes her travel blog one to follow.
Geraldine DeRuiter, a.k.a. The Everywhereist (http://www.everywhereist.com/) –
Geraldine is hands down the funniest, wittiest, intelligent and socially conscious travel blogger on the planet. Her quips and erudite observations about herself and the human condition always brings a smile with a punch in your gut chuckle. She tells it as she sees it. Absolute brilliance!
Sabine Krestel – Kungfuprincess On The Road
There are many great Blogs out there, but my 3 Favorites are:
http://chinaslostpanda.com This one is not your typical Travel Blog, Anna is strictly focusing on China. But if you need to know anything about China, that’s where you will find it. From Etiquette to weird situations. I love it because nothing is more entertaining then cultural diffrences^^
http://theblondeabroad.com/ Can’t help it…she is doing all the cool things I want to try. So if I need some inspirations, that is the place where I will check. Kiersten is amazingly bubbly and it’s fun to read her Blog. And she takes amazing Pictures. Like I said perfect Inspirations.
http://youngadventuress.com Well darn she just writes it how it is and I love Liz for it. It’s not always just Sunshine and Flowers and she writes about those things too. Plus she has a bit of a Nerdy Streak in some of her Posts, which I really enjoy=)
Kungfuprincess on the Road is all about Adventure, Martial Arts and Travel.
Simon Heyes – Simon’s Jam Jar
Anna Parker – Travel With Penelope and Parker
My go to blogs, and great ladies to lunch with too are…
Around the world in 80 pairs of shoes – part way through visiting all the counties in England in one year, there’s always a UK or overseas idea on Kelly’s blog.
Adventures of a London Kiwi – great selection of posts and I love Emma’s writing and sense of humour.
Silverspoon London – if you need luxury advice the world around Angie will have a great suggestion.
Penelope and Parker is all about luxury and unique retreats with vitamin sea.
Ashlee Tuck – Will Drink For Travel
Kristin Luna – Camels and Chocolate
Alex in Wanderland because she’s one of the best writers out there in the blogosphere, she’s an excellent photographer, and she is always off doing something exciting—like snorkeling with beluga whales—in a country I’ve likely never visited.
Angie Away because I’ve known her for a decade and, like me, she’s transitioned from single NYC career gal to married freelancer with a bad-ass career, a husband and a permanent home base in the Deep South.
Vagabond3 because she shows that having kids doesn’t mean you have to do away with your dreams. She and her husband, Bob, still have careers in content marketing and destination branding and have incorporated their one-year-old Augustine into the fold quite seamlessly.
Kristin Luna is a Nashville-based magazine journalist and senior citizen in blogging years.
Candice Walsh – Free Candie
Candice Walsh is a freelance writer, blogger, and copywriter living between Newfoundland, Canada and Berlin, Germany.

Kach and Jonathan Howe – Two Monkey’s Travel Group
Will Tang – Going Awesome Places
Will is the Chief of Awesome over at travel blog Going Awesome Places.
Dave Anderson – Jones Around The World
Nomadasaurus – Jarryd & Alesha have given me some serious #RelationshipGoals. They travel far and wide to places I would only dream of going towards, and are always updating their social-media accounts with beautiful pictures and fun stories. They are REAL travelers, and have lived such an epic lifestyle. I’ve been following them for quite some time now, and have met them in person – and they are just incredible people!
Dan Flying Solo – If you browse through this guys Instagram feed, you’ll completely understand. Dan is a super talented photographer, and each one of his photos tells an amazing story. I’ve had the pleasure of traveling with him as well, and he’s an all-around great person. His blog is beautiful and captivating, and he has some amazing articles that are well worth a read.
The Planet D – Okay, so these two need no introduction, but they really are one of my top favorites, so I had to include them. They are genuinely two of the nicest people I’ve ever met, and capture and share their adventures in the most amazing way. Dave & Deb are travel rockstars!

Shannon O’Donnell – A Little Adrift
Trisha Velarmino – P.S. I’m On My Way

Andy McFarlane – Window Seat Preferred
Where is Tara – Not only is she an awesome fellow Irish blogger, but she’s an awesome writing style that I love reading – even if she was writing about something completely dull.
One Mile at a Time – This is definitely leaning more towards the hardcore travel hacker community, but it’s fascinating to read how some folks’ manage to travel the world in premium cabins for next to nothing.
Heart My Backpack – This blogger has sort of ‘relaxed’ slightly since moving to Norway – but even though I didn’t think I would, I continue to find her posts inspiring and stunningly put-together to the point; it’s amazing to see, because so few travel bloggers can maintain any kind of following after ‘settling’!
Andy McFarlane is an Irish World Traveller, Serial Expat, Tech Follower, Product Manager & Renowned Cheapskate who blogs at Window Seat Preferred.
Jeremy Scott Foster – Travel Freak
My favorite travel blogs are about travel hacking—I like knowing which credit cards to use, and how to use points to maximize my rewards. The Points Guy and Million Mile Secrets are great for this. I also love Secret Flying, a blog dedicated to releasing error fares, so you can book airfare for insanely low prices!
Shannon Kircher – The Wanderlust Effect

Just A Pack – Michael and Randi are two friends who have been travelling together for years now. They have a huge passion for storytelling and great photography and it shines through in everything they do.
Don’t Forget To Move – Jules and Christine are dedicated responsible travellers and seek out the best sustainable activities all around the world. They are also hilarious, so make sure you check out their Snapchat and Instagram stories.
Jennifer Miner – The Vacation Gals

Deni Verklan – The Fulltime Tourist
Happy to Wander – I stumbled across Christina Guan’s travel blog, Happy to Wander, quite recently and fell in love with how she effortlessly sprinkles her personality throughout her blog posts. Honest, witty and hopelessly normal, she follows her travel dreams while juggling conventional responsibilities like school and work.
The Tongue in Chic – Liz Stephenson’s blog, The Tongue in Chic, is quite possibly my favourite almost-travel blog. A modern day Carrie Bradshaw, Liz writes with the sass, frankness and over-sharing qualities that were popular in Sex and the City. But instead of writing exclusively about her friends’ prowess, Liz writes about travel. Highly entertaining and informative, The Tongue in Chic is my go-to for travel blogging inspiration.
Department of Wandering – Seeping with knowledge about expat travel, European getaways and Australian sunshine, Rachel Bale offers her readers a highly refined selection of travel adventures with a subtle philosophical approach to travel. Her journalism background is prevalent throughout The Department of Wandering, making her a trustworthy and fascinating writer to follow.
Deni Verklan is a 22-year-old Canadian with a passion for travel, photography, writing and gluten-free & plant-based foods.
