Top travel blogs to watch in 2015

As a gap year and travel specialist organisation we enjoying writing daily blogs…but we also enjoy reading travel blogs!

Here is a list of 16 travel blogs that we think are the ones to watch for 2015…

 

#1 Time Travel Turtle

“My name’s Michael Turtle and you’re invited to come along as I explore the world until the money runs out, I get bored or I fall off the back of a motorbike (my biggest travel fear, by the way!). This blog isn’t a diary or a list of places to visit- it goes deeper to look at the people, the culture and the stories behind the brochures.”
