More and more of us are following blogs, immersing ourselves in them to soak up everything from film reviews to make up tips. So it’s only natural that we’ll have a look to see what the blogosphere says about holidays. Whether it’s potential destinations, things to do or great travel deals, the travel blogging community seem to have all of the answers. Here are a few of our favourite travel blogs.
The National Geographic
The National Geographic travel blog is probably the most well-known on our list – thanks to the prestige of the magazine and the great content that the blog delivers. From articles inspired by Twitter interaction with readers to the regular Trip of the Week feature, it’s wide-ranging and engaging. Being part of The National Geographic empire also means that the photography is stunning.
If you’re as much a foodie as you are a keen traveller, then Flamboyant Eats should provide you with plenty of inspiration. Run by Bren Herrera, a fashion, art and food professional, it’s a mixture of travel stories, recipes and restaurant reviews. From Melbourne to Paris, dishes from all over the world are discussed. These articles are all accompanied by beautiful images that will make your mouth water!

Blogging isn’t just for the young. Silver Travel Advisor is a travel blog aimed at mature travellers. After all, age is no barrier to having fun! Featuring reviews, offers and travel tips, it’s a must-read for any older people heading off on a big trip. It picked up a British Travel Award in 2014 too, showing that it’s one of the best online resources out there.
Part of the huge Yahoo Internal business, the Yahoo travel blog provides a mix of insightful information, personal travel stories and celebrity travel news. With articles as wide ranging as the best Star Wars film locations to the most dangerous mountain walks in the world, there really is something for everybody, and well worth reading daily.
