With countries from Argentina to Vietnam under her belt, she tells it like it is when traveling and delves into health and wellness with a chronic illness with sincerity.
Lessons Learned Abroad — Chris
I first stumbled on Chris and Lessons Learned Abroad from a very real, self-snarky but funny post about the signs that you’re a disappointing nomad. If that doesn’t give you an idea of how fun, real, and inspiring Chris (and Christine) are in their travels, from traversing the Banana Pancake Trail to climbing Mount Fuji.
Drink Tea Travel — Oksana and Max
Oksana and Max from Drink Tea Travel pretty much committed to the dream— quitting the 9-5, selling their stuff, and just going for it. They’re mission is to travel with a sustainable and conscious lifestyle, doing that old adage of taking photos and simply leaving footprints.

With 10 years under her belt of exploring the world, Carolin of Breathingtravel is what I’d call a seasoned adventurer (and skilled surfer). Her site is full of posts to get you started on your journey and photos to make you want to leave your desk and buy the first ticket out of the country ASAP.

Mike and Oshin are the two wander-ful wizards behind Hobo with a Laptop.

Traveling Petite Girl — Jojo
I’m all about Jojo’s Traveling Petite Girl blog. Like a seasoned travel blogger, she’s a great photographer and videographer and writes about doing what she loves, but she also wants to share her experience to inspire other badass women to do the same. I appreciate her harsh truths to travel bloggers in their first year— it’s honest but encouraging you to keep going. It pays off!

Amy from My Kids in Tow shows that kids don’t mean you can’t travel, have adventures, and have that enriched life. She shows by doing how you can bike Rotterdam with the kids where to go in Barcelona with a 10 or 5-year-old. As she says, research is always important for any parent before a trip or a visit, and her site is rife with great info.

If you’re a seasoned blogger or freelance writer or if you’re starting out, I think you need to see Lizzie from Wanderful World. Her site’s full of great content for booking clients, myths on freelancing, and plenty of other guides. It’s all of those things you’re probably thinking or worrying about and not sure where to even start with questions. Start here!
