Travelling can be hugely exciting but it can also be pretty daunting. Travel blogs offer an in-depth and real look at the highs and lows of travel without actually having to go out there and experience it yourself. Of course, it might also be the thing that motivates you to get out there and get travelling too. The people behind the blogs are just as interesting for various reasons like their stories, character, and even travel advice. Here are some travel bloggers who are worth a follow!

1. Liz Cleere

Liz Cleere of FollowTheBoat hosts a great site that’s viewed as a resource for men and women travellers to train their skills as travel writers. It’s informal and informative, and definitely, one which you ought to check out when you get a chance.

2. Emily Luxton

Emily Luxton’s is the founder of eponymous blog EmilyLuxton. She shares personal travel tales via her blog articles and lends advice on things as diverse as what to see when visiting Asia all the way to cottages in the English countryside.

➡️ Swipe for a final set to round off this virtual IG trip to Italy, from glamorous Milano ???? Who let this potato-tourist in here? Why am I all Edward Fister-hands in an attempt to look ‘natural’? Anyway… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These photos are from a previous trip to Milan back in November, because my most recent visit was a hot sweaty mess of me trying to check off all the remaining things on my Milan bucket list. Did you know for instance that Milan has all of the following: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1️⃣ A really epic Chinatown, with stalls that sell Chinese “ravioli”, AKA dumplings ? I went to a ‘Ravioleria’ that had the most bangin’ dumplings and it felt like such a fun collision of my favourite things. 2️⃣ THE Last Supper. THAT one. The one you know, by Leonardo Da Vinci. It’s pretty huge and in the dining room of a monastery. You need to book months in advance or buy an expensive tour like I did, and then you only get 15 min to stare at it until a very small and aggressive Italian woman emerges from nowhere and shoos you out. It’s pretty great. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyways, now you know. Missing Milano a little extra today, but excited to take you on a virtual trip somewhere else tomorrow with the ten million unposted photos I have! Where should we head next? ? #Milan #Italy
