There are many travel websites and blogs out there on the internet but it can all be a bit overwhelming with all the details and personal experiences from each. I have somehow whittled it down to several blogs that I visit on a regular basis. I have found that each blogger is unique and has let their own personality shine through in their blog posts.
Let me indulge you in your own wanderlust as I share some of my favorite travel blogs. :)
1. WORLD OF WANDERLUST
Brooke Saward, the girl behind World of Wanderlust, is a solo female traveller who hails from Australia. She has been to practically every country that I've longed to visit (plus more!). Her posts are always informative and practical. PLUS: She has tips for all types of travel and she talks about the ups and downs of solo female travelling!
2. THE OVERSEAS ESCAPE
Margo, along with her husband Dan, have been travelling and touring Europe for a couple of years now. Their destinations, which involve picturesque views and charming towns, are enough to set my Europe-starved heart into a skipping beat. Going through her entries are always a treat, plus Margo is so sweet and down-to-earth!
3. THE LONDONER
Rosie of The Londoner fills her blog not only with tales of her travels to exotic locations (she's a water baby!), but also of her own delicious-looking recipes and restaurant/shopping discoveries. All her photos look amazing and her dog Custard, a Maltese cross Yorkie, is the cutest!
4. RUE RODIER
Marissa is a Londoner who moved to Paris in 2013 and has documented her life in Paris through her food and lifestyle posts. I especially love that she travelled to the Banaue Rice Terraces here in the Philippines just last month!
5. GRANDEUR TRAVELER
Dr. Amadeus Baraan (yes, he is a doctor!) is the man behind Grandeur Traveler. He is a Filipino, a doctor who specializes in dermatology, and an avid traveler. I love his blog because he features local destinations as well as iconic landmarks abroad. One question that I would like answered though, is how he manages to travel so much despite his line of work! This guy is living the life that I want!
6. THE POOR TRAVELER
The Poor Traveler was created by two guys who are Philippine-based and who wanted to do more in life than just their 8-5 office jobs. Their blog entries pack a punch of info and humor that makes it an enjoyable read. They have been featured on several magazines and websites, so you know they're legit.
7. THE TRAVEL HACK
This is probably one of the most useful travel websites out there. Looking for tips on how to pack? How to survive a particular city? How to save money AND get the best out of traveling? Wondering what are the best luggage and gadgets to bring while on the road? Look no further! Luxury travel meets budget travel in The Travel Hack!
So there goes my list of Top 7 travel blogs! I hope I have inspired you to travel more!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
