Our 10 Favorite Travel Blogs

Subscribers often ask us what blogs we enjoy reading. The web is full of inspiration to travel better and satiate our wanderlust, but it can be difficult to wade through sponsored content and find the gems.  Cutting right to the chase, below are blogs we’ve found amusing, insightful, inspirational, and beautifully written:

Michael’s blog/website has some of the best content and design on the web.  His background in the industry allows him to feature a newspaper travel page that speaks to the masses.  His emphasis is on the writing, but the photography is eye-catching in a daring in an uninhibited nature most travelers won’t dare.

Completely bias, as we have only frequented this blog due to its parallels to our life as a construction engineer in the Foreign Service.  Greg does a great job profiling the steps of the application process and was a tremendous resource while our life was in limbo.

I’d like to hope that when I leave this earth, my family and friends believe something about me giving as fully as I could. To the people I love and to the areas of culture that excited me to build things. Then a lot of dancing, loud music and talking about what an idiot I made of myself during that process.
