But as much as it sucks for someone like me who is trying to get a leg up in the travel blog world, I have to admit that there are a lot of good travel blogs out there. And I love reading them. The travel stories they tell, the tips they give. The good ones keep me motivated.
With that, here are some of my favorites:
When it comes to travel hacking, Gary Leff, the man behind View From the Wing, is second to none. Not only is he an expert at playing the miles and points game, but his site also provides all the news headlines you really need to know in the travel industry. Really a one-stop shop.
The Points Guy
With the team this guy has amassed, there’s no shortage of expert knowledge on Brian Kelly’s site. Want to know the best credit card deals on the market today? Want to know what each and every point you have is probably worth? This site has the answers.
If you've got a family, and you're interested in saving some money while traveling, Summer Hull’s blog is the place to go. I can only imagine how difficult it is, but she somehow makes it seem easy. She’s also been featured on ABC News and Travel Channel. Although her blog isn’t really geared towards me, there is a ton of useful information on it that I love reading about.
The husband and wife team are about as good as anyone when it comes to traveling with their kids on (almost) nothing but miles and points. If you’re interested in budget travel, family travel, or the thrifty lifestyle, you’ll wanna bookmark this site.
Travel is Free
I love the detail Drew Macomber includes in his travel blog. He rarely leaves anything out. I can tell, he's also an aviation geek, which makes it even better. If I want to know anything about stopovers, you’ll probably find it here.
My Life’s a Movie
Starting her blog from the ground up with nothing but hard work and determination, Alyssa has got quite the following today. She calls herself a “full time solo traveler.” If you’re interested in traveling somewhere on your own, she’s got great tips.
Not only does she have a good blog, but Nadine’s real bread and butter is YouTube, where she has a very large audience. Her video blogs (or vlogs) are extremely entertaining. If you’re tired of reading, check out her channel. You won’t be disappointed.
These are my favorites right now, but by no means are they the only ones. There are a ton of travel blogs out there. You should definitely add some of them to your reading list… after mine of course.
