It is no secret that I love traveling. After being abroad for 3 months, I can most definitely say that this has turned out to be true. I love exploring new places, crossing things off my bucket list, and experiencing new cultures.
But as much I wish I could travel all-day, every day, it’s just not possible. Whether it is because of a lack of time or money, I can’t be on the road all the time. So that’s why I resort to living vicariously through other people. Nowadays, thanks to the Internet, I can roam the streets of Paris, explore the Gizeh Pyramids in Egypt, or climb Mount Everest all from the comfort of my own home.
But there are are thousands of travel bloggers on the Internet, so it can be hard to find the best ones, the ones you’ll truly connect with. That’s why I rounded up my 10 favorite travel blogs that will not only allow you to fulfill your wanderlust, but that will also help you plan your next adventure!
1. Brooke Saward from World of Wanderlust
Brooke is one of the first travel blogs I’ve followed. She has traveled all around the world and even wrote her own book called World of Wanderlust! She’s a super genuine, down-to-earth kind of girl, and all of her blog posts make want to hop on a plane ASAP. If you’re looking for travel inspiration and advice, she’s your gal! She is one of my go-to resources when it comes to traveling!

2. Helene Sula from Helene in Between
I’ve mentioned Helene as one of my favorite bloggers for women in their 20s before, but I couldn’t go by without mentioning her again. Ever since she moved to Heidelberg, Germany with her husband Michael and their two dogs, I have loved following her on both her Instagram and her blog. She has been on some pretty amazing trips and has traveled around most of Europe. Her posts are incredibly well written, her pictures are absolutely gorgeous, and all of her advice is spot-on. Reading Helene’s posts feel like you’re catching up with your best friend after she’s come home from a trip! She is super relatable, and I’m sure you’ll love getting lost in her words. She also has TONS of Instagram and blogging advice, if that’s more your cup of tea. 😉

I actually find Sabina through Instagram! (Seriously, you NEED to follow her if you aren’t already! Click here to see her account.)

Later on, I realized that she also had a blog and a YouTube channel, where she goes more in-depth about her various trips and adventures. Sabina is a super inspiring person – she’s currently spending 5 months in Africa on a project with the European Commission!

If you’re looking for anything about studying abroad, I’d highly recommend you check out The College Tourist. It’s a website written for students, by students. Wherever in the world you’ll be for your semester abroad, chances are, somebody else has been there before. I spent hours perusing their website before I left for England, and they have tons of resources, travel guides, and advice not only on all things travel, but also everything that is regarding life abroad and preparing yourself for this adventure. You can even get published on their site if you feel up to it!

I found Catalina’s blog while I was prepping for my semester abroad, and I’m so glad I did! For starters, her blog is absolutely stunning! But aside from that *minor* detail, she also has some pretty awesome travel guides and study abroad advice! Catalina studied abroad herself in Florence, Italy while she was in college, and she loved it so much that she went back to work as a student travel guide! Needless to say, she’s a MUST if you’re planning to travel to Florence! Most recently, she has moved to Sevilla in Spain to work as a language and culture teaching assistant. I’ve just loved following her adventures, and I’m sure you will too! This girl is a literal ray of sunshine.
