Continuing with our series showcasing our favourite travel bloggers, we have selected three blogs that we recommend this month based upon their depth of content, quality of posts and knowledgeable insight into the world of travelling.
This month’s recommendations include a travelling duo who offer advice for those travelling on Indian passports, a solo female traveller who likes to take things slow and fully explore her destinations, and an informative American bloggers who has travelled to six continents in as many years.
Angie set off on her travels in 2010, originally with the plan of spending a year adventuring abroad. Six years later, she is still discovering new places and sharing them with the readers of her blog. In that time, she has travelled to six of the seven continents (excluding Antarctica), visiting destinations including Laos, Kenya, Bolivia and Australia.
Alongside diary-style posts documenting her adventures around the world, Angie also shares a variety of lifestyle posts. If you’re looking for beauty tips for travellers, travel recipes, hotel recommendations or tips on volunteering abroad, head straight to Angie’s blog.
Blogging duo Ashray and Zara have visited over 40 countries since first embarking on their round-the-world travels in 2011. The pair present a very unique perspective on travelling, drawing on their Indian and Portuguese backgrounds to share their travelling stories from the perspective of both Eastern and Western heritage. In particular, their articles detailing the issues involved with travelling on an Indian passport are incredibly useful and insightful.
Appealing to fellow travellers, those considering travel themselves, and others who are content sat at home reading about the travel of others, Backpack Me shares tips, suggestions and important ‘how to’ guides alongside entertaining diary posts guaranteed to incite wanderlust.
High Heels & A Backpack
Originally from the UK, Melissa of High Heels & A Backpack has been travelling solo and writing about her adventures for over five years. Describing herself as a ‘slow traveller’, she prefers to fully immerse herself in the destinations that she visits, rather than hopping from country to tick off places on a list. So far, she has spent time in California, South Korea, Hong Kong, Italy and Japan, documenting her travel tips and favourite places on her blog.
Part of the allure of Melissa’s blog is that she is a dedicated solo traveller and is keen to encourage more women to travel the world on their own. Posts such as 16 Tips for the Solo Female Traveller and 8 Ways Travel Makes you a Better Person make great reading for women considering their own round the world adventures.
