Bringing travel journalism to your fingertips.


In the industry of travel journalism, it is important to try and connect and keep informed about what other writers are talking about in the travel community. If you can stay aware of trending topics and influencers in your field then you can maximise your content and write in a knowledgable and educated fashion.

To help with this, I have created a list of my favourite travel blogs of 2022 so that my fellow writers can check them out and discover what the industry is talking about this year.

The List
