See The World
Seek Adventure Travel Happy
Hey Happy Travelers! I've posted in the past about the difficult realities of blogging full time and how hard it is to make blogging your day job. These are all still true, but one of the great things about being a travel blogger is the great people that you get to network with all over the world. There are a few blogs that I've been stalking a bit because they're great inspiration and the people writing them seem to be normal cool people who just want to get you out there seeing the world.
That's why I put together this list of travel bloggers that I think you should definitely check out. They'll help fuel your wanderlust and give you some great tips about making travel a part of your life. So, without further ado and in no particular order:
Happy Traveler's Top 10 Travel Bloggers that you should be following!
1. Will Hatton @ The Broke Backpacker
Seriously, I don't know how this guy does it. He's putting out really cool content on a regular basis and writing about it in a way that keeps you entertained. He's boarding down volcanoes, and repelling down waterfalls. Oh yeah, and he's helping you do it on a budget!
2. Petra & Shaun @ The Global Couple
This cool couple is from New Zealand, and you all know I have a soft spot in my heart for Kiwis! I love this blog because they're not only seeing amazing places all over the world, but they're not afraid to let you know about the the not so great things that happen along the way . Anyone can tell you that travel is awesome, but having a blog tell you when things don't go right is valuable when you're a travel newbie. They've also got some great road tips for starting out on the road.
3. Tea @ Tea Was Here
I love people who love food. For me travel is half about trying new interesting food and Tea gets that. She's sharing beautiful pictures of destinations and never forgets to let you know what's tasty there as well. She's funny and out to inspire you food and travel addiction.
3. The Nomadic Chica
The Nomadic Chica is a solo traveler from Chile who is inspiring people and women to get out there and travel. I love that she encourages women to travel solo. Why wait to have someone travel with you, when you're all you need! She's also got great tips for staying healthy on the road, which is so helpful!
4. Gemma and Craig @ Two Scots Abroad
If I had to guess, these two are probably the life of the party wherever they go. Which is good news for you because you can join them on some of their adventures to places like Machu Picchu or SXSW. They're taking a career break to travel and have some great tips to save up money so you can do it too.
5. Andrea Ata @ No Money, Will Travel
As her blog title might suggest, she's got some great budget travel tips. And at only 18, she blows my mind with what a great blogger she is. She's your average poor student with a case of wanderlust and she wants to help those of you that might still be grappling with the high cost of tuition also see the world and live life. Traveling=the best education!
6. Ashlea @ A Globe Well Traveled
I love Ashlea's posts because she gets real with you about some of the sacrifices you have to make to travel. And truth be known if you really want to travel, they're not sacrifices at all. She's telling you how to sell all your stuff and hit the road, and you can always tell it's Ashlea by her signature red coat...which I love!
7. Sarah @ Journey to Design
One of my favorite parts of visiting a new city is the architecture and art that you find in sometimes unexpected places. And that's why I love Journey to Design because it's travel from a design perspective. It's a look at the cultural influences on space and it creates a richer look at travel.
8. Sabina @ Girl vs Globe
Sabina is seriously fun to follow. She's fun, funny, and out to have a good time. She's a London based blogger and is sharing her journey around the world and through life with honesty that is truly refreshing. She's posting beautiful photos of destinations, delicious food, and inspiration to get you out there!
9. Bailey & Mark @ Let Birds Fly
Bailey and Mark's blog is great for a lot of reasons, but one if them is that many of their destinations are easily accessible by road trip...and they love dogs so you know they're good people. Some of their recent posts are to places like the Oregon Coast (what what!), Moab, New Orleans and other really cool places that you can definitely see in the near future. This is a great blog to follow if you want to start breaking in your travel shoes with some awesome road trips!
10. Mike & Anne @ HoneyTrek
Mike and Anne set out on an epic 675 day honeymoon around the world visiting 6 continents and 33 countries. So, besides the fact that that's an awesome idea, and that I'm pretty sure we should be best friends, their blog is full of amazing destinations, great tips, and inspirations for how to set out on your own epic adventure. Life is about living now, and they're a great example of that!

Hi there! I'm Skeeter. I grew up moving a lot and that makes me a bit restless for travel and exploration. I started this blog with my husband Pat when we decided to backpack New Zealand for a year. We are always looking for the next adventure and are loving life. We're just your average couple with two sassy dogs and a love for travel. We're sharing our travels and the tips we pick up along the way.
Hello! I'm Liz. Blogging is very new to me, but I'm so excited to finally write as much as I talk!
