8 Travel Websites for you to explore.

To celebrate my pending overseas trip, I thought I would highlight some of the cool travel websites I have discovered.

I have to say, there are so many wonderful travel websites available, it’s hard to highlight only a few!

I’ve tried to include a bit of everything – family travel, solo travel, couples, people who have finished there latest trip, people currently still on the road and those that have taken up expat life living in one spot. Enjoy!

The Grounded Traveller

The Grounded Traveller is written by Andrew Couch, an American living and working in Germany.

Y Travel Blog

This blog is written by Caz and Craig, a married couple who collectively have been traveling and working overseas since 1997.  They both traveled prior to meeting each other, traveled together as a couple and now take their 2 daughters on their adventures. Amazing!

Alpaca Suitcase

The tagline for this blog says it best – California family abandons suburbia for a year to volunteer, travel and homeschool their kids: 6 months in South America and 6 months in the Mediterranean.

 Solo Friendly

Being a solo traveler myself, I loved this blog straight away.  The writer Gray Cargill from Vermont offers great tips and advice for solo travelers.

As Gray mentions in her tagline – All you need to travel is YOU. I couldn’t agree more!

Bacon is Magic

Bacon is magic is written by Ayngelina, a thirty-something woman traveling through Latin America. At the time of reading, she was on day 344.

This blog has an impressive Press/PR page   Definitely worth a look.

Exploring Alaska by RV

I have a personal connection to this blog. It is written by Graham, aka my big brother. My brother and his family (wife and two teenagers)  have been to Alaska twice, most recently in 2010 and this site documents what they have learned and experienced. If you are thinking of traveling around Alaska in an RV, this would be a great place to start.

American in France

Another blog which I have a personal interest in is American in France.  This blog is run by my friend Cynthia.  We originally met in La Spezia on the Cinque Terre in 1998. We hit it off straight away and spent my 33rd birthday together celebrating in the beautiful town of Vernazza. Cynthia was then kind enough to invite me to stay in her lovely cottage, about an hour out of Rome.  It was a wonderful experience and one that I am truly grateful for.

I have not seen Cynthia for a long time, but who knows what travel adventures are just around the corner?

Just so you know, the 7 pictures in this post are personal photos from my travels and not connected to any of the featured websites.

Bon Voyage and Happy Travels! Enjoy the websites.

Note: In case you are questioning my counting skills, I have had to remove one of the travel websites due to it becoming unstable. I will update with another site shortly.
