best travel blog 2017

Which one of the thousands of travel blogs on the web are the best travel blogs, in your opinion?

I secretly hope you’ll answer: Easy Planet Travel! I also honestly think that there are incredible and talented bloggers around the world expressing their love for traveling so wonderfully that we can’t keep ourselves from following their footsteps!

So it is that time of the year again, where I list my greatest travel blog discoveries of the last months. This year, I thought I wouldn’t list the best travel blogs by categories. I want to help you notice travelers that maybe are starting in the blogging industry, but offer the most valuable content to you, are entertaining and engaging! And I also list the best of the best, the big names that are still real, still answer your emails when you write to them and comment their posts, and don’t think too much of themselves.

Please take the time to look at these 50 best travel blogs of 2017, pick the one you prefer, and comment below why! And also take note that they aren’t listed in any particular order: #1 is as good for me then #50! (wait to see who is last!)

And for this year’s winners, please feel free to add this badge to your website (and link back to mine, if you understand the effort I put into this list lol).
