One thing is for sure: La Carmina leaves a deep impression. Our travel blogger of the month of May doesn’t only attract attention with her extravagant Goth-inspired style, she also casts a different light on the seemingly common places she travels to. Fashion, travel, subcultures, art – whoever thinks these elements can’t be combined should definitely have a look at La Carmina’s travel blog!

Describe shortly: what is your blog about? Where are you from and where do you live?
If you’re intrigued by Harajuku girls style, Bangkok nightlife, and Berlin music festivals – then I have a feeling you’ll like my La Carmina blog. It’s a photo-packed chronicle of my eccentric travels worldwide, with a focus on alternative culture and fashion. In addition to blogging, I’m also a travel TV host and writer. Perhaps you’ve seen my book about cute-decorated food, or my appearances on Bizarre Foods, World’s Weirdest Restaurants, Taboo and more television shows. I’m from Vancouver, Canada and live out of my suitcase. Read More »

tripwolf’s travel bloggers of the month March, Lisa and her husband George from We Said Go Travel, are writers, speakers, but most of all, they are travelers. Up until now, they have visited more than one hundred countries and Lisa herself has worked on a cruise ship for 7 years. Not settling for writing for others only, they also like to inspire travelers to write about their own travels and to submit their articles in the We Said Go Travel writing contest.


What is your blog about? Where are you from and where do you live?

We Said Go Travel is a global community of writers and travelers. We have articles from every continent. During the last thirteen months, over one thousand people on our planet from seventy-four countries has shared their stories in our writing contests!

Sushi or pork roast? Sushi but my favorite is tempura. (I don’t eat pork)
Coffee or Red Bull? Neither- I don’t drink any caffeine!
Wine or beer? PROSECCO! I love the bubbles.
Suitcase or backpack? Backpack—love Eagle Creek
Night train or night bus? I like the night train and the night bus. I want a sleeper bed not a seat so sometimes depending on the country to get a full sleeper you have to go with train vs. bus!
Sleeping bag or bedding? Sleeping bag for Nepal trekking otherwise bedding.
Window or aisle? I love a window seat! I like to see where we have been and where we are going. Read More »

Travel Blogger of the Month: Josh from GoTravelYourWay

Josh Cahill does not live an entirely conventional life. Instead of choosing the regular resume of school-degree-job, he decided to go for a whole different education – the university of life itself. For a couple of years he is on the road now, couchsurfing his ways through countries other people wouldn’t even begin to consider as a travel destination.

My main focus is to inspire people to expand their horizons. I want to introduce countries which aren’t as popular as Thailand or France. I travel to countries such as Iran and Afghanistan, and participated in the Arab Spring in Egypt just to give travelers a more detailed insight into those countries. These kinds of undiscovered places deserve more credit, and I try to show the real and beautiful faces behind these amazing places.

Sushi or pork roast? I’m a meat lover and I would actually go for the pork.
Coffee or Red Bull? I have a passion for either drink but yeah, Red Bull it is!
Wine or beer? Oh I can’t deny my German-Czech heritage so definitely beer!
Suitcase or backpack? Backpack!
Night train or night bus? I love night trains and I do not enjoy bus rides at all.
Sleeping bag or bedding? I don’t care, I love everything related to sleep.
Window or aisle? If it’s a new destination then of course the window seat!
Diarrhea or constipation? Diarrhea so I get heaps of time to reply to my emails while enjoying the toilet :D
Malarone or malaria? I once participated in a medical research study for Malaria treatment so I guess it made me immune to it hehe…
Hops or grass? Hops because grass just makes me sleepy. The one you can lay on of course, I mean…

Since when does you blogpost exist? Any post you recommend to our readers? My blog is only seven months old. I have been traveling for a few years but I’ve never really made my stories public before. My friends always told me to set up a website and share all those unique stories. I can highly recommend my story about getting lost in Iran. Read More »

Bucket List Journey is a travel blog where the main focus is about traveling the world in search of bucket list worthy experiences. These ventures could be anything from eating strange traditional foods to visiting unique attractions to participating in daring adventures.

Elephants in Thailand

“After getting a handle on a serious case of anxiety, I wanted to live a life filled with excitement and adventure to make up for all that I had missed, so I began living out an advantageous bucket list. The blog was started almost five years ago as a way to record my bucket list journey. It has since evolved from a “hey, look what I did” account into traveling all over the world searching for bucket list worthy ideas that my readers can add to their own lists. My goal is to live a life I love while inspiring others to do the same.”  – Annette of Bucket List Journey

Travel Blogger of the Month: The Travel Tart

I was glad to catch Anthony who runs TheTravelTart.com – a travel writer who shares the funny, offbeat, and ‘downright weird’ (his words!) aspects of world travel today. It’s refreshing to find a successful travel blog that doesn’t take itself too seriously!

“I fell into travel blogging by accident. I met some other bloggers in a different niche and I noticed the great opportunities they were getting, so I decided to have a crack at it! No regrets, even though running a website drives me insane sometimes!”

tripwolf Blogger of the Month: Bright Continent

I found Anton and Bright Continent on a web site featuring underrated travel blogs.  If you’re looking for something pure and positive, if you’re perhaps sick of snarky travel writing, Anton’s blog is all heart.  Appropriately, the blogging started in 2010 when he went on a photographic assignment for Operation Smile in Madagascar.  “It was an incredibly positive atmosphere I wanted to share it with people so I formed Bright Continent and began writing and posting images. It grew from there. Ultimately I would like to communicate that Africa can change people, that we can learn more from this continent than we think.”

“I try to give viewers an honest impression of Africa and a sense of the wonder of traveling here. Most of all it’s about the spirit of the people I meet. I travel in a variety of ways – motorcycling, driving, hitchhiking, public transport and so on, and I aim to get among people and feel the pulse of things.”

We feature many bloggers who’ve quit their 9 – 5 to travel the world.  Besudesu Abroad is for those of us who can’t or won’t shun our careers, but who won’t compromise our dreams of traveling either.  Originally from Chicago, Beth got her first true taste of travel when she studied abroad in Japan during her final year of university.  She fell in love with Asia, so she found herself moving right back upon graduating to teach English full-time in Hong Kong.  She’s out to prove that adventurous and practical are not at odds.

tripwolf Blogger of the Month: Finding the Universe

Laurence started the travel blog in May 2010 after a year of travelling around Australia – a trip he wrote up in an actual diary. He decided he’d be better off chronicling his adventures online, which would let him add photos and share updates with friends and family.

He enjoyed it so much that he kept it going, gradually shifting the focus more and more to the photography side of it. Providing exceptional photography is now a major part of the blog – Laurence has been taking pictures since his parents gifted him a film SLR twenty years ago, and loves to experiment with the art.

“The blog is about sharing how wonderful the world is, and how many incredible experiences are out there, waiting to be found – whatever the budget. We love to inspire people – every time we hear from those we’ve inspired to get out there and chase their dreams we feel that we’ve accomplished something! We also like to entertain if we can, so we don’t take ourselves too seriously with the writing. Life is about having fun and being happy, and it’s important to us that that comes across.

After a couple of years of silently helping out in the background with editing and idea generation, Vera burst into the forefront of the blog, and now writes a good amount of the content as well, in addition to publishing the German version of the site.

Bridges and Balloons follows the personal journey of Victoria and Steve, a writer/yoga teacher and filmmaker from London, who took their careers on the road.  This inspiring blog is an exploration of living the life you want to, not the life you think you should – and the ups and downs involved in the attempt.

“We started the blog when we left London and set off for Rio in March 2012…We want to share inspiring stories and beautiful photography, which will encourage other people to live their dreams too. It’s taken a while to find our feet, but we try to publish posts we’d like to read – photo stories and personal tales of the ups and downs of trying to stay true to one’s dreams.”

Victoria and Steve

“Life is one big puzzle and we’re trying to find out the best way to put ours together. Bridges and Balloons is just as much a lifestyle blog as a travel one.”

Travel Blogger of the Month: Further Bound

I met Hannah last month in a serendipitous travel blogger’s meet-up in Patnem, Goa.  I immediately connected with Hannah’s story – and thought you would, too – partly because it’s incredibly honest.  She’s learned to write that way, the hard way, and shares stories of past deceit, debts, and do-overs.  Plus, I just love her style!  A  graphic designer as well as writer, Hannah’s branded herself beautiful and practical with her more-than-just travel blog, Further Bound.

“[Further Bound contains] tales of my personal journey dealing with issues such as debt, love, health scares, fear and chasing your dreams. I try to live honestly and wholeheartedly, and I think my blog reflects that.
