If The Culture Map doesn’t have what you’re looking for, then I’m sure some of these sites will!
A Taste of Travel – Food, photography, personality – Jenny’s blog has all the ingredients to make the perfect travel blog. If I could only read one travel blog for the rest of my life, it would be this one.
Alex in Wanderland – Alex is a full-time traveller who knows how to enjoy the world. She’s also a serious scuba diver so many of her explorations venture out into the great unknown seas!
Cheryl Howard – Cheryl really knows how to find the quirky places in a city. Her blog is about European travel, expat life and aimed for women!
Etramping – Agness and Cez travel around the world on under $25 a day! Their blog is therefore jam-packed with money saving tips!
Sateless Suitcase – I LOVE this girl’s blog because she shares her passion for art and history with her readers. She is originally from Germany, but has mastered the art of English to perfection.

The World is a Book – If you have a family and want your kids to enjoy travelling as much as you do, then head over to Mary’s blog!
Wanderful World – Lizzie’s blog is interesting because she constantly questions the social norm and the places she travels through. She creates thoughtful conversation – exactly how I like travel writers to be.
Foodgawker – A round up of the best food recipes. Changes daily so you’ll always find something new and scrumdiddlyumptious.
The Skint Foodie – This guy knows all about how to make delicious meals at very affordable prices. He’s won several food blog awards and rightly so, I recommend starting with his bio page to get a good understanding of what his blog is about and why its so important to many people.
