Despite being, y’know, a travel blogger of sorts, I’m ashamed to say I do sort of suck at reading other people’s travel blogs. Except when I’m researching destinations, then I’ll be all over your travel tales and listicles like a mosquito to an un-sprayed leg (seriously though, get down with the DEET).
There are, however, travel blogs out there I’ll come back to time and time again, even if I’m not dreaming up my latest adventure. To me, those blogs offer more than wanderlust and ideas – but stories I’m fascinated to read. Images that I want to hang up on my wall. A person (okay, or, multiple people) behind the blog, which means where they are is quite irrelevant – I’m just curious about what they’re up to.
Some are useful, some are inspirational, some are just bloody good fun – and although this is by no means all of them, these are six travel blogs that you might just fall in love with in 2018.
After a wine-fuelled (by me, at least) chat with Andrew and Emily at Traverse last year, I can confirm they’re actually two of the loveliest travel bloggers around. Their blog combines glossy magazine quality travel photography with a personal and friendly writing style, and this combo really makes Along Dusty Roads stand out.

I couldn’t leave Charlie off this list, because as well as a wonderful friend, she’s also a fantastic travel blogger. We have similar interests in things we like to see and do (including eating, of course), so she’s someone I’ll always look to for ideas when I’m planning an adventure.

Despite having never met in person (which needs to change this year!), Sam is just the loveliest! Her posts are an awesome mix of travel inspiration and helpful advice, with a real curious outlook on life – something that always makes for fantastic reading and never fails to raise a smile.
An Awesome Post: I went travelling alone for the first time – here’s how it went down
I still remember the first time I read Kara’s ‘About Me’ section and just knew that she was the kinda person who’d be right up my street. Having spent a week and a half on the road with her back in May, I can confirm this is totally true. Her writing style is so fun and like chatting to a mate, she’s not afraid of being completely honest about her experiences, and her posts are always a joy to read.

Real talk. Luxury travel isn’t usually my style. Although, like many of us, I’d like it to be. So luxe travel blogs don’t really hit my reading agenda that often. However, I’m completely addicted to Angie’s blog, and love reading along with every post. She’s basically like that really cool friend who does awesome stuff that you can’t help find fascinating, and the way she presents her travel is so enjoyable, I just love hearing about what she’s up to. Plus, she also has some great London restaurant recommendations!
