Traveling is a passion for many, a job for others, and somewhere in between for most. As I’ve started my own journey into the world of travel blogs, I’ve been amazed, awed and inspired by some of the great travel blogs out there. I don’t really view them as competition, but rather as inspiration and I want to share some of the best ones with you.

Best Travel Blogs 2019 Edition

Drum roll…and here they are:

3 (overall) Best Travel Blogs

I have spent a LOT of time looking at travel blogs. Asking questions like how do they do cover a certain topic, or use images in their posts or what social channels seem to be working. Even what kinds of products they might be offering to their readers. I’ve looked at personal travel blogs, tourism blogs, adventure blogs, solo female blogs, family travel blogs – and of course business travel blogs. SO. MANY. TRAVEL. BLOGS. LOL…

During that time, I’ve discovered 3 travel blogs that everyone should be following. These travel blogs, in my opinion anyway, are the best of of the best travel blogs. They are the tip of the spear, the creme de la creme. I think you will like them too.

Here are the 3 (overall) Best Travel Blogs:

  1. Nomadic Matt. Matt, in my opinion, sets the standard for all travel blogs on the internet. He meets all the criteria: Useful content, attractive website, highly popular, and his authenticity comes through. Plus, he’s a fan of Pinky & the Brain, which honestly is all that was really needed here. He is also one of the most successful travel blogs out today. His blog is literally one of the most read travel blogs around.
  2. YTravelBlog: I found the YTravelBlog by accident, while searching for ideas on how to structure my blog and boy am I glad I did. Their travel blog is more of a general travel blog, that’s a bit more focused on family travel blogging. Their site is clean, well organized, and they offer well written, engaging, and authentic content. My family has used their site when planning family vacations! #MustFollow. If I was building a Top 10 Family Travel Blogs list…they’d be #1.
  3. Everywhereist. Geraldine DeRuiter is an acclaimed author, world-renowned public speaker, and the voice behind the award-winning Everywhereist blog. She writes about dessert, feminism, and Jeff Goldblum’s entire filmography (which honestly should be enough to lure you in at this point). Her personal travel blog has a unique and fun design that is both clean and visually appealing and the stories are rich and descriptive. These are all of the reasons why I consider her to be one of the best travel blogs to follow and on the top travel bloggers in the world.

Honorable Mention:

  • A Dangerous Business Travel Blog. Despite the name, this is NOT a business travel blog. It is, however, a wonderful collection of wonderful spun travel tales told by Amanda. They are full of vibrant pictures and an earnest voice.
  • On The Grid: This is an interesting choice for the best travel blogs list, because it’s really a collection of hundreds of localized travel bloggers providing their feedback and reviews of local eateries and neighborhoods. But the content is stellar, and written from a local perspective which is always best. You need to check these guys out.
  • HandLuggageOnly. We just recently discovered these guys and their awesome travel blog. Here are two buddies from college who travel the world. Their blog is clean and well organized, and highly visual. Great stories, hacks and more. They also have a MASSIVE following on Social Media. Worth adding these fellas to your regular reading list.
  • Expert Vagabond. Matt Karsten runs a beautiful travel blog with a heavy emphasis on photography and adventure. He’s an American Expat living in Italy – but still traveling all over this beautiful planet.

Keep reading, because we’ve only just scratched the surface on the best travel blogs around. There are more great and popular travel blogs ahead!

Best Business Travel Blogs

As noted in the intro, there are not a lot of business travel blogs out there today.

I don’t know why that is, because there are certainly a lot of us business travelers out there every day. Believe me, I sit next to them every week on my Southwest flight.

With that said, here’s a list of the best business travel blogs in the game today (IMO!):

  1. The Boarding Area is really a suite of business travel blogs (and other good frequent traveler blogs, in general). It is a platform that houses somewhere (at last count) around 40+ best travel blog sites around – some good, some great, some not so much. Lots of experienced travelers here though and lots of great content. [March 2019 update: We just joined the network of great travel blogs and are very excited about it!]
  2. Business Travel Life: Business Travel Life offers competent biz travel information. They feature a clean, simple site, loaded with useful practical information that every business traveler can benefit from – with particular focus on healthy travel.
  3. Road Warriorette: The Road Warriorette is run by a serious business professional, Sarah, and she knows what she’s talking about. She offers great tips, practical advice, and excellent dining ideas for those who spend more nights in the next Hampton Inn than they do in their own bed.
  4. (me!): I am including my new blog in this list, because, well…it’s my blog directory. Haha! But also, there are really not that many business travel blogs. I’d like to think that my focus on topics like Travel Hacks, Travel Tips, Healthy Business Travel and of course Gifts for Business Travelers are actually useful for my fellow business travel brethren. Time will tell though. LOL!
  5. Stuck at the Airport. This business travel blog is probably my favorite in terms of aesthetic appeal. Harriet Baskas has done a tremendous job with her sight. It’s like Pinterest, but a travel blog. Pretty sweet looking. It’s also, FULL of wonderful content that the business traveler can use on their daily grind.

Honorable Mentions:

  • Frequent Business Traveler: This is an established business travel blog with excellent and consistent content. But it’s in need of a paint job. Looks aside, it has wonderful, useful content, which frankly is more important. Let me be clear. This is a great travel blog.
  • The Military Frequent Flier. The Military Frequent Flier is run by a couple of vets who know how to travel. While they are no longer actively serving, their years of travel during their service have given them unique perspective on travel. Definitely worth a follow.
  • Travel After Five. A fellow business travel blogger I discovered that puts out great content about life on the road. Clean site. Good pics…and great guides for what to do AFTER 5pm…which is a real problem for us regular business travelers. She also has a Road Warrior Handbook you might want to check out.
  • Business Travel News: These guys should be the gold standard for business travel blogs and I would have named them so, if they were not SO polished. In my view, a travel blog is run by 1 or 2 people and it’s a side hustle, not the main squeeze. BTN is a great site, don’t get me wrong. SOLID advice, business travel news, ideas on points programs, etc. But it’s also a full blown business. Still, add it to your business travel blog feed.
  • Travelling for Work. Another work travel blog that shares ideas on how to step up your travel game while on the road.
  • The Points Guy. This is a travel blog that’s all about points and miles. Really good stuff here!

Did I miss your business travel blog? Do you belong on this list? You probably do, so hit me up on Twitter and let me know!

Other Great & Interesting Travel Blogs you NEED to follow (aka the Best of the Rest in multiple travel blog categories)

Here is a fun list of some of the best and most interesting travel blogs worth following. Some are just personal travel blogs, others are more lifestyle blogs with a travel angle, some focus on food blogging while traveling. Think of this section as a giant “honorable mention” list! Check em out! These are great travel blogs!

Note: the list is not in order. 

  • Diana’s Healthy Living. Diana’s Healthy Living blog is a balanced lifestyle blog that covers everything from travel, to food, to healthy lifestyle. She has a huge following and that’s probably because she puts out great content – stuff worth reading! For example, the Top 5 Things To Do in Tempe, Arizona contains solid suggestions on what to do in this interesting town (and I know Tempe, my in-laws live there). Most compelling though, are her pictures which are I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E.
  • Bald Thoughts. These fellas show readers how to take amazing vacations using noting more than points and miles. Use their travel hacks and tricks as you plan your next trip! For example, their post 11 IMMEDIATE steps you must take when getting a new credit card is contains solid advice on how to get the most out of a credit card rewards system.
  • Tim Foolery. A super great name for a travel blog if you ask me! Been around a long time (since 2011) and is consistently pumping out solid content. And except for the fact he’s a United guy (ugh!) he’s pretty swell. 🙂 Check him out!
  • The Down Lo. Cool name and logo but better content. Lauren has a massive blog with a huge social media following and it’s justified given all of the exciting places she’s been and solid content
  • Stuck in Customs. An insanely visual photo blog from a world renowned photographer with accolades from folks like JJ Abrams and Hans Zimmer, Trey is one of (if not THE) best photo blog sites in the world. If you are looking for tips on photography, cameras and gear it’s all here. Or if you just want to look at some beautiful travel photos, he’s got that too.
  • View from the Wing. Gary Leff is a travel expert who’s been in the points, miles and travel hacking game for a long time. Excellent advice, well written and organized. People refer to him as the Air Genius and regularly appears on TV, etc.
  • Luxury Columnist. Major players in the high-end travel blogging sphere. Suze and Paul are more than just travel bloggers though…they drop some luxe fashion on you too. But the travel content is really the good stuff here. For example, they have an entire section on hidden gems (which I’ve been poring over).
  • Rolandomio Travel. Try saying that 3 times fast! While I have no idea how to pronounce the name of his website, there is really good content destination related travel content here. But, what I like most about the Rolandomio Travel folks is they are super engaging with their audience. Leave them a comment? You will get a response.
  • Nerd Nomads. I love this couple because they are in the IT industry which is my background and they love travel. Really nicely done site and they often focus on movie ties in (e.g. where something was filmed, etc) during their travels.
  • The Unusual Traveler. What I like most about Christian’s blog (aside from his funny blog title) is that he blogs about beer (I mean, who doesn’t love that!). He also has an extensive live of travel tips and tricks about life as a backpacker!
  • The Creative Travel Guide. The Creative Travel Guide is a vivid travel blog with exceptional pictures and great advice (like their article Do you know what is really covered by your travel insurance?)
  • Live & Let’s Fly. Long term travel pro and blogger Matt shares travel news, frequent flyer programs/updates and travel tips and tricks.
  • Hopping Feet. First off, I love the name of this blog. Very creative. But more importantly, they have great travel content. She notes: “My itineraries are usually activity-heavy and my ideas are best suited for those looking to maximise their limited time.” And that’s exactly the case with articles like 8 places in Oahu, Hawaii that’ll make your jaw drop which is full of great suggestions on what to do on that fun island.
  • Trip and Trail. A great backpacking focused travel blog written by Chris. Follow him on each adventure as he mixes the trail with the journey!
  • Cranky Flier. A great name, first of all! But also, great content. The Cranky Flier is run by a gentleman who’s been in and around the airline industry for years. His unique perspective on the industry with a healthy dose of “crank” (which is hilarious). Check out his section on the “worst airline ever” and watch him lambaste some bonehead moves by some big name airlines.
  • It’s all Bee. Bianca, or Bee, as she goes by, is a London-based IT consultant that loves to travel. She writes destination guides and shares great travel tips – including some packing tips worth checking out!
  • Continents and Condiments. Cedric is a freelance journalist from Canada blogging about food and travel. But it’s his food blogging that is out of this world!
  • Orange Wayfarer. A culturally immersive and responsible travel focused blog. Learn tips on how to integrate into the local culture for a better travel experience!
  • Career Gappers. Learn how to refocus your life for a travel focused career Gap. Alex and Lisa teach you how to intentionally take time for travel in their career break advice section.
  • Gastrotravelogue. A blog about foodies and for foodies who travel. Yum! This is on the top rated travel blogs around – check it out and you will see why.
  • Wanderous Affair. The Wanderous Affair is a travel magazine and blog that provides vivid pictures and accounts of some of the most fascinating places in the world, book reviews. For example, their article on All-Inclusive Caribbean Trips is full of useful advice for the warm-water bound vacationer!
  • Fill My Passport. First off…we love, love, love, their logo. Pretty sweet! Secondly, really solid blog here. Strong content!
  • CKanani. I have no idea how to pronounce this, but this is a great travel blog that’s been around for a while. They focus on luxury travel and adventure all over the world. Oh…and lots of pictures.
  • Jones Around the World. Bam…visually brilliant. The imagery smacks you in the face (in a good way) when  you land here. Clearly Dave knows what he’s doing! Also a bit of a party guy…so lots of fun being had all around on his adventures.
  • Traveling Honeybird. An Australian based adventure blog with great content. They’ve been doing this for 6 years!
  • Extreme Nomads. Another fantastic adventure blog worth following. Grace and Jim have been doing this for a while and their blog is chock full of great photos and lots of exciting adventure ideas.
  • The Travel Bunny. I just like this name, first off, but Suzanne’s been doing this a while and has built up a solid blog with great content – and a unique focus on architecture (which is what really caught my eye)
  • The Winged Fork. This blog could have been titled Abby Eats Worms becasue that’s the first thing I saw when I visited this blog…of course Abby does more than eat worms. In fact, her blog has been in the travel blogging game for a while and has lots of compelling stories and adventures. Well worth an add to your favorite travel blog list!
  • Traveler’s Universe. This interesting blog is for post backpacking millenials who want to discover their world but do so in a responsible way without sacrificing the finer comforts of travel. They emphasize the experience over money.

    Such a great list you’ve thrown together! I’m very happy to see NomadicMatt up top still as he’s always been an inspiration to me from the beginning. From doing the webinars reading his guides and doing a few of his meet ups around the globe, he never fails to inspire me to go one further

  2. Alex Trembath

    Very interesting, there are a couple here I didn’t know about so I’m checking them out. There are so many great travel blogs out there. At the moment my favourite is Adventure In You – those guys are crushing it.

  7. Robyn Lowrie

    Would love to be added to your list. My focus is pretty narrow as my blogs are mainly about France. However, these posts include history, art, culture and language acquisition. Thank you for your consideration:

      Hi Robyn – thanks for reaching out. Take a look at the rules on the bottom of the Best Travel Blogs post, and then circle back once those few things are done. I can add you (I like your site, btw).

    Thank you so much for mentioning me in the article as a solo travel 🧳 blogger! I’m super honored and excited! Cheers 🥂 to do bigger and better things in the New Year! Good luck with your blog as well!

    1. The C Boarding Group Post author

      Thanks Jane! I think most of them totally apply to both business and leisure travelers.

    1. The C Boarding Group Post author

      Yeah no doubt. Once you are invested it’s hard to make a case to switch to. My company is pressuring me to switch. And United doesn’t do status matching with Southwest. Ugh!

    Great site with a LOT of information. You should also include information for people who are SKI-ing, Spending Kids Inheritance. Retired couples who travel the world and money is no object. We have sold our cars and rented out our home in downtown Boston. We live three months in a city of our choice with fantastic 2-3 bedroom apartments in ideal locations and invite all of our friends to come visit. We have been blogging about our adventures for over a year now. We started the blogs to inspire other retirees and also to be able to relive our travels in future years.

    Hey Jeremy, Very nice list; I can see you put a lot of time and thought into it. I enjoy reading others’ travel blogs; they are so inspiring. The only problem is that every time I read a story, I end up addding a new destination to my bucket list. 😀

    My husband Dan and I run a travel blog where we share our own travel itineraries and advice. But he’s a professional photographer and sometimes i go overboard with the photos, lol. We’d love to be considered for your list someday.

    Have an amazing day.

  56. Colin Simpson

    Hi, love your exhaustive travel blog directory, how long did that take!! Could I ask you to consider including the Afaranwide blog in your next guide. My wife Sue are older than most bloggers and offer the perspectives of expats, travellers and tourists. We’re Brits who live in Hong Kong following spells in Dubai and Beijing and extended stays in Saudi Arabia, the US, France and the Seychelles. Please check it out.
    Regards, Colin
