My Favourite Travel Bloggers of 2015

I spend most of my days either reading about travel or writing about it. I’ve come to realize there are an astounding amount of travel bloggers out there! Full time workers, people who have quit their jobs to travel, people who travel with kids and people who just loveto travel – whatever your situation, I can guarantee there is a travel blogger in a similar situation.

When I started Travel Pray Love, I had no idea that there were so many people in my same situation. Traveling across the world, immigrating to a new country to be closer to their spouse or boyfriend. I began to get emails and messages about how inspiring my big move (Canada to Belgium) was and how excited people were to be reading my posts about our immigration process.

Inspiring other people is an amazing feeling – and I wanted to share with you where I get some of my inspiration from!
Here are my top 10 travel bloggers (in no particular order) for the month of September.

Love & Road

I LOVE this blog for many reasons, but mainly because they do things in both English and Portuguese. Compiling posts, statuses and photos in two different languages is a tough task – and these two definitely pull it off!

Flirting With the Globe

This blog is a huge inspiration to people who want to travel the world but are still working 9-5s. Karisa, a full time attorney – still finds time to road trip in Ireland and spend a whirlwind 48 hours in Dubai. Talk about impressive.

Nomadic Mat

Following Mat’s posts has been something I have done for years – and I am always in awe of his writing style and his stunning photos. Along with his blog, he has a few books and guides about travel, including my favourite…
“How to Travel the World on $50 a Day.”
Seriously, if you’re looking for inspiration – check out his journey!

Adventurous Kate

This was the very first travel blog I ever subscribed to, and I will always be inspired by Kate’s adventures. Kate travels mostly solo which can be pretty scary sometimes. You hear all these stories about female travelers being taken advantage of and being lonely while they travel – but Kate proves that it’s not only possible, but so much fun!

The Poor Traveler

These two guys crack me up nonstop. K and I have had our fair share of mishaps while traveling (like that one time he ended up in a Canadian emergency room during his first visit to Canada…)
No matter what life throws at these two travelers, they make it happen and continue on their way.
Traveling at any cost – these two are real inspirations.

Trip & Travel Blog

You definitely need to follow this blog if you’re looking for ideas for your next trips. Trip & Travel share and post amazing ideas, stunning photos and great tips for your next getaway.

Two Drifters

This is the ultimate wanderer’s love story – and it just keeps getting more adorable. Recently celebrating their engagement, these two have been drifting together for years – and it’s just so inspirational to follow their journey.

Wife With Baggage

This blog is inspiring because it’s written by two people who work 9-5s and actually love their jobs, but also love to travel.
So often you hear the “I quit my job to travel and I realized how unhappy I was…”
It’s really nice to hear about career-minded, family-oriented people who ALSO have a passion for travel. These two have traveled just as much (or more) then some other full time bloggers I know – proving that you don’t have to choose between your career and your wanderlust.

A Girl Who Travels

Why should you follow Marta from A Girl Who Travels?
I took bucket showers in Laos, swam in the Arabian sea at midnight, I was an extra in a Bollywood film, lived like a local in Jordan, got nearly kidnapped in Istanbul, lived out my childhood dream in Tokyo, had my heart broken in NYC and fell in love in Italy.

Because her life sounds incredible and will definitely serve as your wanderlust inspiration.

Traveling Canucks

Not only does this couple love to travel, they make it a priority even as new parents! You hear a lot about people who travel in their 20s because everyone thinks that having children somehow puts an end to your travel dreams.
This couple proves that starting a family and maintaining your passion for travel is possible.
They have had amazing adventures both before and after they had children. AND they’re Canadian.

  1. OMG!!!
    Such a great list and I still can’t believe you mentioned us! It’s a pleasure to be part of it, and thanks for recognize our double work blogging in in two different languages… I already thought about giving up Portuguese, but it´s my mother tongue and not everybody in Brazil speaks English. So we decided to keep it as it connects us with our roots.
    All the best and keep travelling!

    Love and Road

    1. Definitely keep it up! I can’t imagine how hard it is, I have debated posting both in English and Dutch (my boyfriend’s native language) because we’re living in Belgium right now. So I may be messaging you for some advice in the near future, Nat! 🙂 <3

  2. Thanks for this, I’ll enjoy working my way through that list. Although, between travellling with our kids in tow and attempting to keep a vaguely up-to-date blog myself, it doesn’t always leave the time I’d like to read all the other great travel stories out there. Those blogs of solo and couple travel make me nostalgic for a simpler time when I could just sit and watch the world go by for hours from a table in a cafe of some far flung place. These days, with the kids, I’m lucky if I get two minutes to soak up the wonderful places we go. They do help me see it all from a fresh perspective though. Thanks again!

    1. I totally feel the same, Selina! Even without kids, my life just sometimes gets too “in the way” of the things I love to do – but I hope the list will inspire you to take the time you need to travel! 😀

  3. Wow, this is so sweet!! Thanks so much for including the Two Drifters. It’s definitely an honor to be listed alongside some other amazing bloggers (Adventurous Kate is certainly my personal fave!) PS: Loving your site, and I totally want that same tattoo hahaha. Keep up the beautiful work! x

  5. This is a great list! Just like you, when I’m not writing about travel – I am reading about it! I always enjoy finding new blogs to follow, so thank you!

    1. Wow! I definitely have to agree with you, I just checked it out and their photography pages are stunning! Thanks!
