From the moment the page loads on wanderingtrader.com, you are face with and overwhelming amount of travel information. Everything from photos, travel tips through to posts and video uploads are covered on the site along with current information for day traders. But the best part of the website is Marcello himself and the way his personally comes through his posts and entertains you as you read. He definitely has his own distinct style of writing and living and from what I can see, he is enjoying every part of it!

When I first visited philintheblank.net I was immediately intrigued by the mention of drawing camels. As a lover of animals, I am well aware of how hard they are to draw so was curious about Phil who claims to know about camel drawing than anyone else. As I read more, I discovered that he was using this unique skill of his to raise money for social enterprises in West Africa and that the full100% of sales from his How to draw camels ebook is donated. This is a clever, innovative and is possibly the coolest thing I have heard in a long time. The other articles on the blog are about life in West Africa and perfectly move from covering serious topics to highlighting the daily joys seen among the people and cultures of West Africa. The website is honest, witty and a joy to read and definitely a new favourite of mine.
James from Nomadic Notes manages to fuse humour, knowledge and readability into his posts that help built a really enjoyable website. The different pages on Nomadic Notes include, travel blog, travel photos, travel thoughts, travel tips and flight review. The flight review section is a great way for travel information regarding airlines and special offers that are sometimes are hard to find to be shared amongst travellers and I think more travel writers should have think section. My favourite is the travel thoughts section. It includes passing thoughts that travellers get described and questioned in a very funny and enjoyable way. Like I said its a great website filled with gems, so go give it a read!
Uncornedmarket.com archives are absolutely overflowing with past travel destinations ranging from Asia to Africa, South America to Europe and the States to the Middle East. They have been nearly everywhere (well it feels like it when you read their blog) but they are still travelling, exploring and experiencing everything that crosses their path. Their website also features great information regarding food, travel tips, technology. amazing photos and my favourite, the humor section. You can easily watch time speed by as you jump from one entertaining article to the next. Also I hope that Audrey and Dan are enjoying the lovely Berlin Summer.
The question normally goes a little like this, “What countries have you been to?”, but with Deb and Dave from The PlanetD the question should more correctly look like this, “What countries haven’t you been to?” These two have been married for 20 years and travelled over 50 countries, which both deserve a solid round of applause. Their website reflects their friendly, fun hearted nature with great posts containing intriguing content and stunning photos. Their back log of posts will inform both new and old travellers of unknown tips, tricks and sights throughout the world and each time the post layout is new and interesting keeping the reader entertained.
Nora has managed to make herself location independent and is loving the freedom that comes with it. Sometimes she stays in a new country for an extended amount of time and sometimes she just travels through, experiencing the new culture, then moving through to the next. She tends to choose her destinations from the opportunities that arise, which has had her trotting the globe since 2006. As a professional writer her posts flow easily and are exciting to read. There is a mixture of informative and helpful posts, up to date news posts and friendly, fun posts on other tavellers and bloggers. The Professional Hobo is a great site with plenty of aspects to keep you entertained for hours.
No, notaballerina.com is not a blog informing you how to become a ballerina or any sort of ballerina related information, it is a great travel blog written by Amanda, who from a young age was positive she was ‘not going to be a ballerina’ but a writer! Her blog articles are fluid, fun and great to read, providing you with information from her past travels, current situation and helpful tips. Amanda comes across as a super friendly person in her blog that after reading a few posts, you can’t help but like her and want to read more.
A Little Adrift is packed full of useful and informative knowledge revolving around travel. I just stumbled upon her RTW travel tips section and my goodness, if I knew some of these things before leaving on my travels, it would have been helpful! It is a must read for anyone planning to travel and also for those out on the road who need a solution to their travel woes. Shannon’s other blogs are just as great, talking about experiences and perspectives, open and honestly. A lovely blog to read and become absorbed in.
Jeannie’s blog if filled to the brim with easy to read information articles. Headings divide up the information into easy to find category’s, from trip planning to destinations, location free to travel scoop, covering all aspects of travel. This makes nomadicchick.com a one stop shop for travelers, where we can come and gather the latest information and tips. Also she has this great category for the summer months, where she is inviting other female writers to share their funny, strange and unique ‘summer chick tales’, which I think is an awesome idea and makes for great writing.
Sally is a writer, so there is no wonder her blog, unbravegirl.com is very well written with easy enjoyable posts. I struggle to believe she is as big of a scaredy cat as she says she is, because it is not an easy thing to get up and move to a foreign country let alone walk in rice fields with pythons eyeing up your ankles! Sally covers all aspects of her daily life, sometimes strongly travel related, sometimes everyday things, but all of them are great reads!
2 Nomads, 1 Narrative is a blog filled to the brim with extremely useful information, interesting blog posts and extremely user friendly. Nicky and Rhys, bring two distinctly different writing styles to their blog keeping it fresh and appealing. If anyone is thinking of heading to Asia to teach, live or travel, I highly recommend you read what they have to say, because they know all the ins and outs, do’s and don’ts, and are still their learning more ready to tell us all.
