Friday Five: Travel Bloggers You Need to Know

Share It:

It doesn't matter if I'm going on a quick weekender, cross-country road trip, or semester abroad - travel blogs have always been my go-to for advice and tips about the journey and my destination.

The worst part of a trip is when it ends - because when you're traveling, all you ever want is to keep going, keep planning, and keep moving. Or at least that's how I usually feel.

I recently came up with a list of weekend trips and excursions I want to take now that I'm in Richmond - in fact, my goal is to get out of RVA one weekend (at least) per month. I'll share my list with you in another post, and you can follow along on the blog and on my Instagram as I work through it.

Meanwhile, I created a #FridayFive list of travel blogs that either really inspire me or have really helped me - check them out for yourself, and enjoy the travel bug when it bites!!

  1. Brunette Jetset. Basically, this chick is a badass - she's been just about everywhere, we agree that Vienna is one of the most livable cities we've visited, and she takes most of her trips solo.
  2. Hepburn and Handbags. Ashley has a great list of weekend trips in her travel section (including Waco, TX, home to everyone's fave HGTV show) and also some really down-to-earth musings about study abroad. Read this article if you've ever been frustrated with a friend who came back from their year or semester in Europe.
  3. Positive Publicity Blog. Camille at Positive Publicity has a ton of quick tip-type articles about visiting various cities - specifically London neighborhoods. Check her out before your next visit across the pond!
  4. Girl x Departure. This one actually might be my fave of today's Friday Five. Laura lives in Berlin and has been across the globe and back - to big cities and small, tried all the foods you can try, curated amazing travel advice, and has the most GORGEOUS photos and website design. Go look - you'll be on an airline website less than 10 minutes later.
  5. Sea Salt Secrets. Go read Shane's About page and try to tell me you aren't inspired. End of story.
