Best Travel Blogs #5
Never Ending Voyage
If you’ve ever had the fantasy of selling everything and traveling the world, this is the blog for you. After doing just that in 2010, Simon Fairbairn and Erin McNeaney took to blogging about their nomadic experiences in Never Ending Voyage.
They blog about how to experience living in — rather than traveling to — new places, and how they’ve managed to stay abroad for so long.
Best Travel Blogs #6
Roads & Kingdoms
If you’re a fan of a dash of politics with your travel, this blog is for you. Though Roads and Kingdoms features everything most other travel blogs do — including travel tips, experiences, and food — its political perspective makes it unique.
Rather than just viewing each new place as a place of relaxation and retreat for travelers, this blog talks about the political environment in different countries as well.
Best Travel Blogs #7

Best Travel Blogs #8
If you’re a parent, you know how difficult it can be to get your child to behave in your own home. When it comes to traveling, the difficulty level rises tenfold.
Thankfully, Travel Mamas is there with everything you need to know about traveling with children of all ages. Everything from products to help your kids travel better, to cruises and theme parks your kids will love, to tips and tricks for traveling as a family.
Best Travel Blogs #9
This blog is similar to other travel blogs with tips on places to go and what to do there. One difference is that it’s one of the most genuine blogs on the subject. Many blogs have sponsored posts and trips, and travels are funded through agreements and sponsorships.
With Nomadic Matt, every post is from Matt himself or one of his guest bloggers, and features content specific to the trips they take and fund themselves.
P.S.: If you’re about to take a trip soon, we can hook you up with some great tips for taking landscape-photography!
