5 Travel Blogs that I Love Reading.IMG_6976-0.JPG

A fellow wanderluster myself, reading others’ travel blogs / travel reviews have been a huge part of my everyday lifestyle.

The other day I was with Sarah, a beautiful Danish-Malaysian good friend of mine (I should probably write another post on how we met and became good friends!) at a cafe in Sloane Square and were just casually updating each other on what’s going on in our lives.  Naturally, I mentioned about this blog I’m doing for my uni assignment (yes, this one!) and she asked a rather interesting question,

‘Do you get inspiration from other blogs?’

I thought for a while and replied,

“Yes actually!  But I prefer the blogs that aren’t mainstream, because the people who write them are more down-to-earth, more approachable, and their experiences are more ‘real’.  The big blogs that get loads of attention usually just turns into another platform for commercials and ads!”

So I got the inspiration for this post from this short catch-up session and decided to introduce 5 travel blogs that I love reading.

 

1. Creating Wanderlust

Creating Wanderlust is an exquisite travel blog by Tiffany (sorry if I seem like I’m stalking you Tiffany!), where she expresses her love for travel and documenting her memoirs and experiences through her travels.  Its not only about recording your travels, but the emotions and experiences that come with it.  I love her attitude towards travelling, plus she’s a genuine and pleasant person (thanks for replying to my comment on your post!) and heres a lovely quote from her ‘about’ page that really tells you about her beautiful personality:

‘Wanderlust is not just about travel. Wanderlust is about dreams. It’s about adventure, creativity and exploration. Most of all, wanderlust is about freedom. Freedom of the body, mind and soul…  You don’t need to be travelling to capture wanderlust. You just have to be willing to create it.’

 

2. Part Time Backpacker

This Part-Time Backpacker’s blog name caught my eye almost instantly!  Curious about why one names herself a ‘part time backpacker’, I clicked into her about page and there I discovered a super relatable situation that most Londoners are probably in – chained to a 9-5 office job / commitment plus catching ‘The Beige’.  

‘The Beige is what I call the terrifying epidemic spreading across dimly lit offices around the world. It is a vicious disease, characterised by alarming rates of monotony and drudgery, and is thought to be caused by the dangerous habit of working a mind-numbing, Mon-Fri job in a stifling environment.’ – What a brilliant way of illustrating what we’re experiencing at a day-to-day basis!

This blog has great ideas for budget trips, and is very inspiring for those who are looking for that short getaway from the busy city life.

 

3. Travel Geek UK

I simply love reading Travel Geek UK as the blog does not only reflect on Travel Geek‘s travel experience / budget / where he went, but its also quite comprehensive on that city / country’s information.  The light and conversational tone makes its posts unbelievably easy to read and follow – plus the facts of the country would definitely NOT bore you to sleep!  I guess by now people will know that I have a thing for reading other people’s about me page – plus its the most significant factor that leads me to love someone’s blog!  So here’s another quote!

‘I often find sometimes the media can throw things out of all proportion, therefore when I travel I aim to inspire and show people there are some amazing and undiscovered destinations still out there.’

Such an insightful thought, yet so genuine and down to earth!  Way to go Travel Geek! and super looking forward to more posts from you!

 

4. Blue Skies Smiling Blog

A beautiful and authentic experience of a girl who started this blog during her 3-month trip to Paris.  The friendly tone and light-heartedness of this blog simply allows me to indulge in her experiences without feeling like reading a pitch from a travel advert.  Not to mention, LOVING the originality in her photos as well!

 

5. Jude Tsang

Last but never the least, how could I forget my twin!? Well, we’re not really twins, but people say we do look like twins! We were on a vacation to Croatia together for 6 days, and we were asked 3 times whether we were: related, sisters or twins?  Well I guess that’s self explanatory!

This girl’s travel wonders are simply sensational, her photos are impeccable plus her writing is so thought-provoking, you just wish you were in her shoes to travel around the world!  Just go to her blog and see for yourself!

Give yourself a few hours to relax, and indulge in their travel experiences!  I do hope you would enjoy as much as I did while reading their travel blogs :)

  6. Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
    has some overlapping.
