My top 9 travel blogs for 2014
My 9 favorite travel bloggers of 2014!
Just like last year, I decided to make a list of my very favorite travel writers, that for a reason or another, have inspired me, made me laugh, opened my horizons and gave me new perspectives.
This is not a list based on numbers or statistics, because if there’s one thing I have learned lately within the “blogosphere” is that numbers don’t mean a thing. This is a very personal choice because of these folks talent, uniqueness and incredible personalities.
The list is organized by alphabetical order and I hope they’ll inspire you as much as they inspire me.
ANGLOITALIAN FOLLOW US
Dale and Franca, are a couple of vegan travelers with a lot of passions: Traveling (of course!), animal rights, great vegan food and art.
I was lucky enough to meet them in Spain and hand out with them for a few days. They’re amazing and I absolutely love them!
Their blog is filled with informative and original articles such as the “Tips for cheap living with housesitting” and each one of them is loaded with beautiful photos. I admit their posts about food always make me drool! Seriously!
I believe they’re really talented and passionate about what they do. Very few travel blogs have so much depth to it. I always learn something new from these 2 and I really hope our paths cross during 2015, because I’d love to meet them in person and get even more inspiration from them.
GOATS ON THE ROAD
I love their work with all my heart! Nick and Dariece are a Canadian couple, with a wanderlust bigger than life and… They’re hilarious!
I found their work through their Youtube chanel and I remember they made me laugh so hard I had to check out their website. From that day on I became a big fan. I have been following their stories for a really long time now (probably the travel blog I read the longest) and they just keep on inspiring me more and more.
They explore off the beaten path destination like Central Asia and are a true reference for unconventional travel. If you’re planing on doing the Silk Road, don’t miss: “ Goats on the Silk road“
GREEN GLOBAL TRAVEL
Bret Love and Mary are a true inspiration. Their dedication to follow their ethics, to respect the environment by taking conscious choices, is what sets them apart from basically everyone else.
They are unique nature lovers, and once you read their blog, you feel like there’s so much more to travelling than just being a tourist passing by. You want to be part of a whole new experience that combines the love for sustainability and adventure. Their professionalism and vision for the future goes beyond the established limitations.
Bret and Mary are currently starting the #JustOneRhino international campaign to help save the Rhinos in South Africa, I’ve learned a lot of facts after reading this incredible Interview with Dereck Joubert from Natgeo.
HIPPY IN HEELS
Rachel is a nurse who left everything behind to live her dream, and little did she know that India would become her home.
She runs a beautiful travel blog filled with funny stories and great photos, mostly about India. And because India never gets boring, Rachel is now a reference for travelers seeking all sorts of Info about the beautiful Indian sub-continent.
I love how original her work is, and all the anecdotes and humor around her stories. Everyone who has been to India or plans to go should definitely follow her and read; the “10 common mistakes to avoid in India”.
JUST ONE WAY TICKET
Sabrina says she’s the worst travel blogger in the world and that writing doesn’t come naturally. She writes way less than most of us, but let me tell you something: Her work is stunning and addictive!
In my opinion she’s one of the most inspiring writers out there and probably the only blog I follow religiously. Her personality shines through her posts and her uniqueness is her greatest asset. When I read her adventures around the world, I almost feel she’s telling me all her tales personally.
Her photos are to die for, and her sense of humor always makes me laugh. Apart from being an excellent and very unconventional blogger, she’s a wonderful person with a great heart.
KEEP CALM AND TRAVEL
I usually find out the travel blogs first and get to know the person behind it later on…. In this case, it was the other way around. I started chatting with Clelia and connected with her immediately. She is so friendly and generous I had to check out her work. That’s when I found out about the Keep calm and Travel, a stunning bilingual travel blog filled with very informative and up to date travel articles.
The moment I set eyes on her guide to the Sardinia beaches, I wanted to get on the very first airplane with a one way ticket. And I might!
Cody and Giselle are the queen and king of the vegan travel blogger crew. They’ll take you with them on their amazing and inspiring journeys of self discovery, as well as a deep compassion for all living beings.
They became vegans after visiting an Elephant sanctuary and decided to use their love for animals and nature to fuel their travel blog. I truly believe their work educates people to a reality most folks don’t know about: the impact we Humans have on the world, the Eco-system and animals. Their post “The truth about Elephant tourism” actually made me cry and from that day on, I kept a very close eye on their work, following their vegan adventures and love for all the living beings we share our planet with.
They’re one of a kind and I admire them deeply.
NOMAD IS BEAUTIFUL
An incredibly talented couple who loves exploring the most ecological and low impact ways of traveling.
I’ve met this incredible couple 3 times, in Greece, in Spain and in Portugal. They’re honest and down to earth, which I admire immensely.
Their love and respect for nature while traveling, has distinguished them from basically all other travel bloggers. When you read their blog, you can almost travel the world without leaving your chair. This is because Ivana is a wonderful writer while Gianni will leave you breathless with this photography.
THE CROWDED PLANET
Margherita and Nick, write what I always call: the soulmate of my Heart of a vagabond. We share such similar passions and love for the unconventional and beyond the mainstream destinations and activities.
Margherita is a very inspiring writer, that makes you lose the sense of time and place and takes you with her through her global adventures, while Nick, with his incredible photography skills will tempt you to leave everything behind and conquer the world.
They’re incredibly professional and passionate for what they do. And behind their work, are two amazing people with a great heart. Their posts offer the most interesting destinations, especially for us who love Nature life.
