After receiving a great response on 24 Feminist Blogs You Need to Follow and Travel India, I was inspired to write an overlapping blog post. Here I list my favorite travel blogger names that motivate me to see the world and give me the best travel advice. I am sharing a variety of Travel Bloggers, from Solo Travelers to couples traveling and even families with children traveling and blogging about it. So gear up your backpacks. I will start with the blog of my very good friend and blogger buddy Sabrina and then move on with others.
1. The In-Between Traveler
“The In-Between Traveller should act as an inspiration for people to travel the world and enjoy amazing individual adventures, even while working a regular 9-5 full-time job and only getting a limited amount of paid leave (paid holidays/annual leave”,
says Sabrina. She encourages others to take time off their routine lives and explore the world.
‘Getting some time off is important for your soul, but having only a few paid days per year can make it difficult to step out of your comfort zone and leave the sofa. That’s why many people don’t even try doing something different.’
She further shares:
‘Sharing stories about previous holidays and itineraries that work for „short“ visits up to a maximum of 2 weeks, hopefully, inspires more to do the same. Taking myself as an example, I want to show that it is possible and you can do much more in a 10-day break than you would ever imagine.’
She acknowledges that taking time out from everyday commitments is hard but emphasizes that it is doable. She said,
“However, becoming an adult brings a lot of commitments into your life, such as job, family, pets, etc.; these can sometimes hold people back from a holiday, but in the end, I believe you just have to plan it right and can make it happen. Therefore I’m also sharing some planning tricks & travel tips on the blog that can help solve some of the most common issues.”
“I’m just a „girl next door“ with the vision to visit as many places as I can in my life, I have to work to reach this goal, and this is the biggest difference to a lot of blogs from all nomad travel blogs. The name is supposed to show exactly this – THE IN BETWEEN TRAVELLER – stands for traveling while life happens.”
