If you haven’t noticed, travel blogs are slowly becoming all the rage in both the tourism and writing industry. For good reason too! They’re absolutely fascinating.
They offer authentic, relatable, fresh perspectives on what it’s really like to either live in or visit places around the world. They’re nothing like boring tour guides or paid promos by lodging facilities looking for their next paying tourist.
Nope, they use language everyday people can understand and discuss the things we, as travelers, actually care about. Like the top spots to visit, cheapest places to eat, outings worth the price, and activities to not waste our time on.
Travel ‘vlogs’ are great too, but they’re not as convenient for travelers on-the-go or those trying to cram as much information in the shortest time possible. Speaking from personal experience.
Lots of travel blogs typically focus on a specific region, country, or even continent. They’re the best sources for preparing well in advance for your trip out of town. They’ll remind of all the things you totally didn’t think about and they’ll mentally prep you for any culture shock.
