Travel Blogs I Read
This is my little travel blog directory, a list of my favorite bloggers whose adventures I enjoy reading. Living vicariously through other bloggers is a habit of mine when budget and time restrictions don’t allow for travels of our own!
General Travel Blogs
The Everywhereist– Geraldine is a hilarious writer and together she and her husband Rand travel the world.
Nomadic Samuel-Sam is an experienced world traveler and this is his blog. His wife writes on her own blog as well, That Backpacker. Sam also has an extensive travel blog directory under his “Contact” page, if you’re looking for more travel blogs to read!
Roaming Nanny– Retha the roaming nanny writes about adventure travel and mostly solo travel. I met her while hiking to Everest Base Camp and she and I quickly became friends. In March 2019 we’re going to climb Mount Kilimanjaro together!
That Backpacker– Audrey, wife of Sam from Nomadic Samuel, writes about their world travels on her blog
Travel Morgan Travel– Morgan, a gal in her early 20’s from Georgia, spent a year living abroad in Ireland and is now back home and traveling the US.

Suitcases and Sippy Cups– Jessica, a mom of 4 boys, is the main writer on this blog but recently introduced a new contributor too

Unlocking Kiki– Kaelene is an American expat who’s been living in Iceland for 4 years with her partner and son
Plus Size Travel Blogs
Bianca Karina– Biana is a plus size writer who covers topics from food to fashion to travel, sometimes all at once!
Kate McHugh Westfall– Kate is a plus size travel blogger from the US. She writes about international travel and body positivity.
Voyaging Vagabond– Chantel is a world traveler who writes tips about traveling as a plus-size girl
The Plus-Size Backpacker– This is a French/English blog that focuses exclusively on plus-size travel. A great resource!
Travel with Curves– Jen is a fellow curvy gal who has PCOS like me. She often features other plus-size bloggers on her website so she’s definitely worth following if you’re looking to find more plus-sized travelers.
Useful Travel Websites
Expatisan Cost of Living Calculator– Compare the cost of living between 2 cities and contribute information about the city you’re currently living in.
Longest Way Home– Andrew is probably one of the more extreme long-term travelers and it’s really admiring. I love his blog but he has so many great resources on his website too.
Unearth the World– A new volunteer travel organization started in 2012 by Kathryn and Mike Pisco that focuses on ethical travel. Really they are the middle man in setting up travelers with reputable organizations in select countries and much of your fees go directly to the organization, not Unearth the World.
WHOA Travel– Women High on Adventure perfectly sums up WHOA Travel’s mission. They’re an adventure company that organizes tours for women such as hiking the Inca Trail or climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. At the end of every adventure is a day that’s dedicated to helping the local community.
