15 Inspiring Female Travel Blogs That You'd Want To Read

One of the reasons why I started travel blogging was because I LOVE reading other people’s travel blogs. Whether it’s to gather information for an upcoming trip or simply for fun, I could spend hours reading articles on Bloglovin.

“8 Tips For Camping In Sahara Desert”? Yes please! “How to Spend 24 Hours in Hong Kong”? I love it!


*If you don’t know what Bloglovin is, it’s a site that lets you read, discover, organize and stay updated with your favorite blogs. It’s a great tool! See The Blessing Bucket on Bloglovin here.


Travel blogs have always been a great source of inspiration for me, and a way to escape to another place while I was sitting at my desk job dreaming about a vacation. In particular, I love blogs written by female travellers. As a female myself, I looked up to these amazing ladies who are trotting all over the world. Today, I share some of my favorite travel blogs written by some of the industry’s most bad ass girl bosses. Follow their journeys and get ready to be inspired!

It had been a bright, sunny day in Monterosso when we hopped on the train to colourful Vernazza, one of my favourite Ligurian villages. Without warning, dark clouds rolled in and heavy rain fell, a quick storm that drenched Cinque Terre's cobblestoned streets and caused all of us, locals and tourists alike, to dash under awnings and into shops. We sat at a seaside restaurant drinking sparkling wine and eating pesto gnocchi until it was clear enough to brave the streets again, the reds and pinks and yellows of the buildings now shining brighter than ever. And still, despite the grey sky and the new chill in the air, my love for Italy remained, as always, forever true. 🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹📷 by @zholeman ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#loveitaly #beautifulitaly #prettylittleitaly #tlpicks #traveldeeper #instatravel #iamatraveler #instapassport #cinqueterre #igitalia #igitaly #bellaitalia #5terre #passionpassport #liguria #liguriansea #darlingescapes #prettylittletrips #theprettycities #italytrip #italylove #italy_ig #visititalia #visititaly #ig_italia #italyiloveyou #italygram #discoveritaly #cinqueterreitaly #vernazza
