I consider my self to be a great travel blogger, but there are so many others with unique perspectives and stories. While I’ve seen and experienced so much, I’m not an expert in all destinations and topic areas. As a 29-year old man, I don’t cover niche areas like family travel and woman travel like other travel blogs can. For these reasons, I am super excited to share my favorite travel blogger websites around the world, ranging from solo travelers and backpackers to family adventure blogs and luxury jetsetters. These trailblazers have inspired me to get out and travel, and I’m confident they will fuel your wanderlust, too!
Looking to follow some of the best travel bloggers in 2023? From mainstream vacation bloggers to digital storytellers focusing on hidden gems, here’s my list of the top 13 best blogs about travel.
1. Dan Flying Solo
Dan is one of the best travel bloggers in the world, hands down. Born and raised in the UK, he is an incredible writer and photographer whose work has been featured in many major publications, including Travel + Leisure and National Geographic. I would be remiss if I covered the best blogs on travel without mentioning him.
I had the privilege and pleasure of meeting Dan on a press trip in Aruba back in 2018, and we’ve been friends ever since. Dan covers a variety of exotic destinations on his travel blog, Dan Flying Solo, with a focus on lesser-known places. In addition to his blog, Dan is a Lonely Planet Ambassador and contributor to the company’s guidebooks.
2. Y Travel Blog
Looking to follow one of the top family and adventure travel blogs? Meet Caz and Craig Makepeace, the writers and photographer behind Y Travel Blog.
Born in the Central Coast of Australia, this Aussie couple has lived in five countries and now reside in North Carolina. They jet set all over the world with their two daughters, sharing tips and inspo from their travel adventures.
I met Caz on a press trip in Northern California a few months ago and have thoroughly enjoyed following her family’s adventurers ever since. There content isn’t just a highlight reel, either. In addition to sharing breathtaking and inspiring travel content, they also share the challenges they encounter along the way, as well as raw and authentic experiences that you don’t typically get with other vacation bloggers. I really admire their work and I think you will, too!
