Are you dreaming of traveling around the world? Some say that you have to be a trailblazer to get to follow your dream. We say, seek for the ones who have done it and follow what they did. Staying true with this belief, we gathered the blogs that made it to TheExpeditioner.com’s Top 50 Travel Blogs Around the World. We followed them, checked what they are writing about, and how do they keep traveling and exploring the world. In our list, you will find Expeditioner’s Top 50 Travel Blogs and Why You Should or Should Not be following them.
Why not follow all of them? Because you just can’t. Simple as that. This doesn’t mean that you need to hate the other bloggers. Not at all. This is to say that there are a wide variety of travelers around the world – heavy backpackers, backpackers who decide to bring only 40 liters of baggage, travelers who walk from Sweden to New York, travelers who spend as extravagant as they can be, travelers who brag staying only in hostels, travelers who bike their way around the world – these are just a few of thousands. As a traveler, you will need to surround yourself with the best guidance you can get, based on the type of travel that you are doing. Don’t get sidetracked.
We have done the research for you. Well, The Expeditioner did the outreach to all the bloggers and asked them to submit their quarterly number of visitors so they can put them in a list from the most visited to the least visited. We did the following and research to see what these travelers are up to. Find out about the detailed criteria and process The Expeditioner used to rank these 50 travel blogs.
1. Nomadic Matt
Matt is an American guy who has been traveling around the world since 2006. He writes about how to save money for your trip and how to travel with a low budget. He travels for as low as $50/day. He writes about how to get money during your trips. My favorite part in his blog is the Travel Guides. Here, he writes about traveling around the country, his detailed budget, and the activities you can do with that amount. He has very interesting articles. However, if you have a lower travel budget than his, this might not be the perfect travel blog for you. I personally love the detailed traveled content and find it useful, however a $50 daily travel budget for me is still luxury budget.
