Earlier this year, travel blogs around the web were abuzz with posts about something called the T-List, which was basically designed to generate exposure for blogs about travel. A novel idea, but by the time I found the list, there were already over 50 blogs on it, so sifting through them all to find the ones I liked seemed like far too daunting a task. These days, the T-List links to 184 travel blogs, so things are even more tough for the fanatic traveller trying to find a blog to feed their addiction.
What I’ve compiled below is not as expansive as the T-List, but I like to think I’ve picked some of the best. These are blogs I read or at least endeavour to read regularly, so I have no problem recommending them to you. Here they are, in reverse alphabetical order (why not?).
