Traveling is a great way to learn about the world. It teaches you about economy, politics, history, geography, sociology and more in a hands-on, immersive way that no classroom ever could. But with so many places in the world to see, it can be hard to decide where to start.
Fortunately, there are an endless supply of travel bloggers and websites to help you narrow down your options. These travel writers share their adventures through written and visual storytelling to inspire you to embark on your own journey around the globe.
These travel blogs are a mix of independent travelers, professional writers and experienced travel professionals. They include stories from the field, destination guides and recommendations, personal experiences and more. Some of these travel bloggers and websites are a bit more casual, while others take their writing very seriously.
Some of these travel bloggers and websites are based in the United States while others are scattered across the globe. The majority of these travel blogs and websites feature some type of photography and/or video, which adds to their appeal.
The 2022 Covid season is finally letting up, and travel is coming back to life in earnest. The easing of restrictions on destinations worldwide and pent up demand for those far-flung vacations have combined to fuel an unprecedented boom in travel. But, with the resumption of normal travel comes new risks and concerns that you should be aware of as you plan your next trip.
This month Germany is a popular destination as Oktoberfest is in full swing. Over six million people attend the festival each year, where they enjoy beer, traditional food and German culture in the city of Munich. Argentina, Chile and Turkey are also good choices as they offer warm weather without the southern hemisphere summer crowds.
In June, Africa and India should be avoided as the continent experiences recurring heat waves. The Caribbean is still a great option, but you’ll want to avoid the island of Jamaica as it’s experiencing heavy hurricane activity. Europe is at its peak in terms of tourism, so expect large crowds. Fortunately, the northern countries of Iceland, Sweden and Norway are a good alternative because they’re experiencing beautiful midsummer weather.
