Top 15 Travel Blogs To Follow in 2015!

I am an avid reader of travel blogs, especially over the last few years since I’ve been travelling around the world more often. I enjoy reading them to hear about interesting and unique travel stories, to admire beautiful photography of incredible places and, of course, to get new ideas for my next trip and to add adventures to my ever-growing bucket list.

There are millions of travel blogs out there – with a good majority of them saved to my bookmarks or sending me emails daily. To help you out, I’ve put together a list of my favourite travel blogs that I read on a regular basis and those that I think you should consider and will enjoy reading in 2015. If you’re not following these blogs already, I guarantee that you’ll be subscribing and adding them straight into your bookmarks!

Some of these blogs are popular and quite well-known, where as others are new, up-and-coming blogs that have already caught my attention! I hope that you find some new faces on this list to inspire you and your travels.

Here is my list of top 15 travel blogs to follow in 2015!

Warning: These  blogs are highly addictive reads and I will bear no responsibility for the countless hours of your time that you will inevitably spend flicking through their amazing travel stories and tips!

    Hey Kelly!

    Great list. I read many of these and there are definitely a few new ones on here too. It doesn’t matter how many times I read a post about Paris, it’s always different through someone else’s eyes and lens. That’s what’s so great about travel blogs. The best ones really transport you.

    I’ve had the good fortune to do a lot of wonderful adventures around the world and love to post stories and photos on my blog although I consider it more of a lifestyle blog most days. Hope you’ll stop by sometime. I reckon we probably share some os the same bucket list items!

    “Travel is like love, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.” — Pico Iyer
