8 travel blogs you should be following

All bloggers have a list of other blogs they follow – whether it’s for writing and photography tips, travel inspiration, or just because these bloggers seem like cool people.

8 travel blogs to follow

We have our own list, and so we thought it was about time that we told you who our favourite bloggers are. We love blogs that feature fantastic travel photography, interesting stories, and posts that make you just want to pack your bags and go!

travel blogs to follow

Young Adventuress

Liz isn’t afraid of what people think of her, and it really comes out in her blog posts. Her writing is ballsy and hilarious, and we love keeping up to date with where she is in the world, as well as her ever improving photography – her Instagram feed is one of the best around, we think. We love that Liz has decided to call Wanaka, New Zealand home for the next few years – it’s awesome kudos for such a big travel blogger to want to make a nest (for now) in little old NZ!

Alex in Wanderland

Alex’s blog was the first travel blog we discovered when we were planning our Southeast Asia trip in 2013. Her blog actually gave us the information needed to start The Global Couple! Alex in Wanderland is all about great photos (and especially fantastic underwater photography) and stories while Alex is travelling the world. Her coverage on SCUBA diving in Koh Tao, Thailand was what made us head there to do our Open Water qualification. Since then, we’ve followed Alex through Southeast Asia, Europe, Central and South America, and her home country of the USA.

Hecktic Travels

Dalene and Pete are Canadian globetrotters who have recently wowed us with images from the Faroe Islands, South Africa, and Tanzania. They’re currently in New Zealand on their first trip here (lucky them have a house-sit in Wanaka). Their funny, charming, and interesting stories, as well as great photography make us tune in frequently to see what they’ve been up to. We also love their website design!


Lesh and Jazza are two awesome Aussies. They are travelling overland from Southeast Asia to South Africa over the period of a couple of years, and they’re currently in Mongolia. What a cool adventure! Their photography just keeps getting better and better, but it surely helps with them visiting crazy amazing destinations – they have visited some of the biggest caves in the world in Vietnam, and have done the ‘most dangerous hike in the world’ in China. We love following their journey and getting inspiration to rough it a bit more on our next trip!

This American Girl

Camille’s blog is a more recent acquisition to our ‘must-reads’ list. She writes truly inspirational posts about how travel changed her life – and how it can change yours too. Camille has a simple lifestyle and makes you realise what you really don’t need. Her posts are well worth reading if you’re thinking of travelling more and potentially making travel a full time thing!

Legal Nomads

Jodi was a lawyer, and is now a nomad – hence the name Legal Nomads. She loves food and most of her posts are about the different food she eats on her travels around the world. Some of our favourite content is from when she was in Vietnam – the street food there looks amazing!

Stoked for Saturday

Jenna and Jordan are Canadians currently residing in Wellington, New Zealand. They are always ‘stoked for Saturday’ and really make the most of their weekends, heading away from Wellington for hikes and mountain climbing. Their photography is insanely awesome and they have a drone (swoon) that makes for some epic videos. We love discovering new places in our home country to visit through their blog, as well as beautiful landscapes in other countries (their posts about Tasmania got us to put it on our bucket list!).

Never Ending Footsteps

Lauren’s blog is a hilarious compilation of her travel stories – she seems to have incredibly bad luck but writes about it in a light hearted way that makes you laugh out loud. We’re quite glad we don’t seem to have as bad luck as she does! We love her recent posts about Myanmar, one of our favourite countries.


So there we go! We hope you liked our list of our favourite bloggers, and maybe you’ve found some new ones to follow.
