17 Travel Bloggers to Follow in 2017

2017 is here and life is starting to get back into the normal routine. The New Year is all about making resolutions and a ‘new year, new me’ attitude. Inspiration is what keeps our resolutions and dreams alive. One of my New Year resolutions is to travel more, so to help me with this resolution I have compiled a list of the top 17 travel bloggers to watch in 2017. These guys are the ones that have inspired me to travel overseas and to explore my own backyard. I must also note that there are so many more amazing travel bloggers out there than just the 17 below.

Drum roll please! In no particular order….

Nomadic Boys

Stefan and Sebastien are a gay couple that have been travelling and conquering the world since 2014. These two are all about showing different gay scenes from around the world. Not only are they absolute gems in supporting the LGBT community but they do it all with a delightful sense of humour. These two have  journeyed on the Trans Siberian railway, Europe, Latin American and are now heading north through the Americas.

What to expect –gay travel destinations ,resources, reviews, romantic travel, adventure travel and food from around the world.

Feet Do Travel

Angie and Simon are the masterminds behind the amazingly inspirational Feet Do Travel, which is both a blog and an online travel community. Both Angie and Simon feel in love with travelling before they met and fell for each other.  After having a “conventional” start to married life together, they still wanted to explore the globe so they did just that! Angie and Simon run a Facebook group (also called Feet Do Travel), that is about bringing both travel bloggers and people who love to travel together to talk about travel advice and inspire them to travel.

What to expect – adventure travel, scuba diving, travel advice, wildlife, and destination advice.

Two Scots Abroad

Gemma and Craig are a dynamic duo from Scotland. These two are all about adventures and bringing it to you with their quick wit.  They have managed amazing feats and love a good gig. Gemma has even trekked 96 miles (yes, miles!!) of the West Highland Way in Scotland. I just find that so insanely cool! These two have just arrived back after 17 months of travelling that included 16 countries. These two definitely make travel happen.

What to expect – humour, destinations that expand the globe, travel resources (including gear, planning and packing) and guides to festivals/gigs.

Creative Travel Guide

Katie and Calum have been exploring the globe since 2011. These two are the perfect pair when it comes to tacking their blog; with Calum being the mastermind behind their social media and photography and Katie accompanying it all with her perfect words. These two are all about helping everyone from the newbie to well seasoned travellers. Why? Because it is all about passing on the knowledge they have accumulated. I know I have been to places and then realised I missed stuff when I left; this is what these guys want to avoid for you!

What to expect – destinations (Asia, Europe, North America), working abroad, Youtube channel, free e-book and food.

Our 3 Kids v the World

Sally and Craig and their 3 kids are one of the best family travel bloggers around. Both Sally and Craig explored the world before their adorable little ones were born, including honeymooning in Vietnam, Thailand and Singapore. When they fell pregnant with the kids, they took a little break from taking on the world. Being fellow Aussies, I love watching them camp around Australia. They highlight Australia’s natural beauty and why we love to call Australia home.

What to expect – family travel, destinations (Australia, Asia, New Zealand) and cost saving tips.

Chasa Travels

Where do I start with Chasa? I have actually known Chasa for many years through penpalling and we actually met a few years ago when I went over to Alabama, USA. I am very lucky as I do consider her a good friend- even though she lives on the other side of the world to me. Chasa Travels is all about getting out and about. With her Get Out and Drive series she does what a lot of us forget to do, explore our own backyard. It is amazing that we forget we have some amazing things just outside our own neighbourhood.

What to expect – destinations (Alabama, USA, Europe, North America) and tips.

Travelsewhere

David is a travel addict. As a kid, David’s family moved overseas twice temporarily to both Belgium and Sweden from Australia. While overseas, he was able to explore different parts of Europe at a young age. This is something that Australians struggle with. It isn’t easy for Aussies to go overseas to a different country just for the weekend. Once back in Australia, David came across the ultimate traveller decision – buy a house or travel the world. After quitting his job, he packed up his bags and hit the road and created Travelsewhere.

What to expect – destinations (Europe, South and North America, Asia), budgeting and photography.

Aussie on the Road

Most travel bloggers will say to you that they were born to travel but Chris was slightly different. After finishing uni and working a standard 9-5 job, Chris was battling clinical depression. After being offered an opportunity to teach in South Korea he was basically pushed there by family and friends. This is where his love of travelling started. I give great props to anyone that can go outside of their comfort zone to try something new. From here the great humour that is Aussie on the Road was born.

What to expect – destinations from all around the world, good humour and travel resources.

Tracy’s Travel in Time

Tracy has been travelling for over 30 years; which included solo trips, as a single parent and with her husband.  Tracy has lived in 6 countries on 3 different continents; with moving to Australia on the horizon (adding another one to the list!). Tracy’s Grandmother gave her a pack of 52 cards with beautiful places from around the world when she was a girl. This is what really inspired her to pack her bags and take on the world.

What to expect – destinations (Europe, Oceania, Africa, Asia, North America), trains and resources (tips and inspiration).

Wander with Jo

Jo is one of the most passionate travel bloggers that I have ever come across and you can see it in the way she writes. Wander with Jo is all about the adventures, specifically hiking, biking, wildlife and anything to do with the water. Jo really does have a knack of capturing the inner beauties of animals, including the animals found on safari. Her blog is the perfect one to kick back with a beer and have a good read!

What to expect – destinations (Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, North America), adventures (hiking, biking, water activities, wildlife), tips, food and photography.

Passions and Places

Jen and Ryan are an American couple that live to see the world. This lovely couple concentrate on ethical travel, exploring the outdoors and healthy living. Jen was serving in the Peace Corps Volunteer in Rwanda when the travel blog bug attacked.  Passions and Places came to be when they went for a hike in Maine and discussed goals and what they really wanted from life. This is how this fantastic blog came to be. They have concerns over portrayals over certain people and places and they want to break those stereotypes. These guys want to bring you an honest and accurate blog.

What to expect – destinations (Africa, Asia, North America, Europe), activities, accommodation and packing.

Nomadic Hippie 2.0

The Nomadic Hippie 2.0 is about being a travel blogger (digital nomad) and an animal rights activist. With the normal 9-5 life being given up on, this blog was started in 2015 but when Cecile went vegan in 2016 and really started to actively participate in protests and demonstrations where her travels take her it really took off.  Cecile’s main goal is to spread the message of compassion through activism and to use her words to help animal rights organisations reach on a world wide scale and to get better known.

What to expect – destinations, videos, veganism and activism.

Momentum Travels

Maria is fairly new to the travelling world and I have only really just discovered her beautiful photography on her blog.  Maria took on the world by travelling down to Singapore, Fiji, New Zealand, Australia and Singapore for 3.5 months with a friend and this opened her eyes to the world of travel. With books and beer also being a big part of Maria’s life, she has included lists of inspirational travel books and beer from around the world on her blog.

What to expect – beer and books and destinations (Europe, North America, Oceania, Southeast Asia).

Eat Sleep Breathe Travel

Hannah is another self confessed travel addict and blames Indiana Jones for it.  Like a lot of travel bloggers, Hannah finished uni and didn’t want to go with the 9-5 job. So she packed her bags and moved halfway around the world on her own– now that takes guts. She made a promise to herself, go somewhere new at least twice a year. This is a goal I live by myself.  With 42 countries under her belt and only 5 of them was with another person. Now that is truly epic.

What to expect – destinations (Europe, Asia, Caribbean, North America), girls getaways, inspiration, trip planning, reviews, scuba diving and solo travel.

Travel Lexx

Lexx was bitten by the travel bug back when he went to visit some mates in Australia a couple of years back.  During his trip he realised that he wanted to travel the world and would make it his priority. He has travelled to over 41 countries and has a wealth of knowledge that a lot of people draw upon. I have even created my upcoming Japan itinerary from his adventures there last year.

What to expect – destinations (Asia, Africa, Europe, North America), cultural experiences, active travel and travel tips.

Travel. Experience. Live.

Bram was born and raised in Belgium, lives in Virginia, USA with his wife that he met in Australia – now that is a multi cultural life! Bram’s first ever solo trip was over to Australia where he worked on fruit farms and drove from coast to coast in Australia (that is one heck of a trip!). Along with that mammoth drive, he has hiked across England and has visited almost every old city within Belgium.

What to expect – national parks, the great outdoors, urban travel, photography, books and gear.

    So many travel bloggers out there, everyone ‘on their trip’. When I started my blogging career, I used to find it very overwhelming even trying to figure out how one was different from the other. Now its much easier.
