Oh I forgot two of my favorite ones! (Because they don't post often so sometimes I forget they're around…)

Lateral Movements, she's been living abroad for something like 12 years. her writing is dry and sarcastic — she's the complete opposite of those fluffy ditzy bloggers who are all "I travel on unicorns and fairy dust"

Sateless Suitcase, a German historian, she doesn't travel really outside Europe but her photography is increddddible and it's cool that she actually has an actual career (in medieval history and art, which is kind of cool in itself) and doesn't really buy into the travel blogging as a job thing clap

I've been reading a lot of travel blogs recently as I plan a trip South East Asia (cliche, yes but I can't wait!) and a few I've really enjoyed are

Angie Away (found her from Alex in Wanderland but she's older and more grown up – she also used to work in travel PR so has an interesting view point);

C'est Christine – based in Brooklyn – I like the way she writes and her weekly "of the moment" posts;

Farsickness – Amanda doesn't post often but I love when she does – know she's been mentioned here before;

Paper Planes – which I'm especially enjoying because she's in Thailand right now so her posts are very timely for me and she writes about how she's moved a bit beyond "backpacker" but still is on a budget.

C'est Christine is the worst. She is obsessed with becoming "famous" on social media and even wrote a pathetic article bragging about how she ruins her own and her friends trips by taking too long getting the perfect instagram photos. 

 

She said she gets up to take pictures of sunrises just for instagram and goes back to sleep. It seems like she just wants people to think she's living some fairy tale life but doesn't actually.

Long time lurker, first time poster here.  I also love Jodi at Legal Nomads – she's a really good writer – I wish she would post more often, but I appreciate that she only posts when she has something to say.  I've been following Adventurous Kate since I discovered her blog while planning a trip to Vietnam five years ago, and while I think it would be a stretch to say she's a good writer, I find her posts easy to read and entertaining enough, and she has made me aware of places I would now love to visit – Shetland for Up Helly Aa, for example.  If I were a travel blogger I would consider that the ultimate compliment.  I also recently discovered http://lookatallthepoorpeople.com/ while planning a trip this past summer, and it is awesome.  It starts off with that hoary wearying premise of "guy and his girlfriend take 15 months off work and travel" with one significant difference – the author is in a wheelchair.  His disability isn't prominent in his blog whatsoever, but as he says himself, it's hard to escape (any photo featuring himself would also include the chair) and he only devotes one post to the realities of travelling in countries that don't really make concessions for wheelchairs.  He is a lovely writer, thoughtful, entertaining, measured.  And hilarious, which I actually think is rare in the travel blogging world.

Thank you for these! I wandered into this section because a friend of mine just recently left her job to become a full time blogger rolleyes. This person really annoys me and I couldn't figure out why, but now I know. It's this "expert" way this person talks.

Anyway the last link is refreshing– thanks!

Long-time lurker here, finally coming out of the shadows haha. I love Ashley from History in High Heels: http://historyinhighheels.blogspot.it

 

Not really a fan of her fashion posts, but her travel tips are great, especially if Italy is a location of major interest for you. She has lots of study abroad tips and "cultural" tips (idk how to phrase that haha, but posts like "How to Order Coffee Like an Italian"). She's also working on her dissertation and shares some of her research from the de Medici family archives in Florence from time-to-time.

Ooh, thanks for this recommendation! It's so rare these days to find blogs by people who have jobs, interests, and a vocabulary beyond "pop of color" and "breathtaking views". Really enjoyed flipping through Sateless Suitcase, too! 

I'm re-considering a big life transition/going back to school/moving countries, and I'm sort of timidly considering blogging about that, so I'm trying to learn some blogging best practices, if you will, to figure out how to do that in the least lame way possible. These are all really helpful :)

I would read your blog, Twizzle! As long as there are no sponsored $1000/night hotel stays and "10 best blogging practices" lists to promote Travel Blogging Success courses

I like Katie on Hope Engaged. They do an excellent job of posting budget friendly trips and they really enjoy the local culture wherever they go.
