Travel Blogs: Pack Your Bags!

This week my focus is on travel. Maybe it’s because the weather is turning, but all I can think about is hitting the open road. There are pools I should be swimming in and jukeboxes in cites I’ve never visited that I should be playing.

Truthfully, I just got back from 10 days in Texas and am already planning my next escape to California in May. And there are so many more places I hope to visit this year and beyond. Not surprisingly, there are a ton of bloggers out there who feel the way I do. So with that in mind, let’s remember to pack our toothbrushes, have a friend water our plants and enjoy this all too brief trip through some of the best travel blogs I’ve seen lately.

Go Green Travel Green is a travel blog that reminds its readers to think conscientiously when traveling. We all want to see the world. But we also need to make sure it’s still around for future generations to travel and enjoy. We don’t have to wear Birkenstock shoes everywhere we visit, but we don’t need to leave the car running either.  If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for any stories that touch on environmentally-sustainable travel.  Check out the full review here.

Trekaroo is a blog dedicated to the family vacation. If you’re looking for great discounts on all-you-can-drink spring break (!!) deals, this might not be the blog for you. But you will find the best places, deals and suggestions for the entire family. They even break it out by (most) states. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories around family vacations or kid-friendly attractions and/or resorts. Check out the full review here.

Never Stop Traveling is the travel blog for those adventure seekers over the age of 50. Though, really, this is a blog for travelers of all ages. Still, don’t expect to read about Coachella or Burning Man on here. You can expect to read a ton of great tips on how to stretch your dollar, achieve elite status and ultimately get the most out of every vacation. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories around travel and senior citizens. Check out the full review here.

Stuck at the Airport is a blog dedicated to making the most of the time spent at the airport. And I’m pretty sure anyone who has ever been on an airplane can relate to that abundance of down-time experienced at our nation’s wonderful airports. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d probably stick with stories that have to do with airline travel. Check out the full review here.

The Everywhereist is a travel blog, yes. But it’s also the story of a woman who got laid off and decided to take that opportunity to accompany her husband as his work took them around the world. So it’s that AND it’s a travel blog. It’s both. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories about travel that dive into locations beyond what is seen on a postcard. Stories of marriage and travel might also work. Check out the full review here.
