We often look for inspiration for our travels on the Internet and more so for first-hand accounts. Whether it’s for what to pack, where to go or what your destination is like, someone out there will have the answer. Hence why we’ve created this list of 10 of our favourite female travel bloggers.
Kate McCulley quit her job when she was 26 and decided to make travel her profession instead. She has one of those motivating and inspiring travel stories you just can’t refuse to indulge. And since she started in South East Asia, we love it even more.
The blog itself has a whole host of personal travel stories, like getting shipwrecked in Indonesia, and more so than in the early days, quite popular destinations. But don’t worry – Adventurous Kate has a few little non-mainstream posts to keep you entertained.
Amanda from Ohio had us from the Tolkien quote on the homepage of her blog: “It’s a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and, if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no telling where you might get swept off to.”
24-year-old Brooke Saward shares travel and lifestyle tips on her blog which she and five contributors work on. After graduating from university, Brooke got a one-way ticket to London and hasn’t looked back since.
Candice Walsh is perhaps one of the most inspiring female travel bloggers on our list. She wears freedom like make-up and speaks openly about the importance of it.
One of our favourite things about Free Candie is the Culture Nerds section of the blog. There you can find her grappling with learning German and more posts including some on (yes, you guessed it) Asia.
Brenna Holeman’s blog is one of our all-time favourite travel blogs. It’s practical, fun and genuinely interesting – we just love it. We particularly like how frank and honest Brenna is about travelling as a solo female. There is no shying away from any dangers and all eventualities are discussed on the blog.
Alex, like so many female travellers, was inspired after a two-month trip to South East Asia. The night before she went, she cried and was terrified of what could happen. Now, her blog has flourished and she has left New York for the rest of this crazy world.
Kiersten’s travel blog is one of the most popular on the Internet. She was living in the rat-race before she quit her job and travelled to over 50 countries.
Now she blogs about destinations such as the Maldives and also adds in beauty hacks for those of you who never compromise on maintenance regardless. She has visited Peru, Canada and even the Galápagos Islands.
Liz Carlson’s personality makes her travel blog what it is. She is witty, sarcastic, honest and a genuinely interesting person.
Blogging about her adventures in her new home of New Zealand and her travels around the rest of the world, we just love this blog. Other posts include visiting South Africa, the Middle East and even an African safari – Liz always serves up a big plate of wanderlust.
Flora’s travel blog is something a little bit different from the rest on this list. She is not just a traveller but a volunteer too. Lots of her posts are on the fulfilling and much-needed act of volunteering, including her view on 200 hours of teaching English as a foreign language.
The blog also talks about adventure tourism a lot, including hiking in the Alps and much more.
Monica created her blog when travelling through Australia in her old camper van as well as when exploring Asia. For any of you who are mothers out there, Monica can relate as she takes her young son George on most of her adventures.
Well, we think that’s enough reading material to get you from one side of the world to the other, right? Happy reading (and travelling, of course)!
