Looking for a photo roll of amazing pics from France, Italy, Iceland, Netherlands, Turkey and so many more countries then you need to stop by and take a look at Beers and Beans.  If you're looking for some great content, inspiration and the travel style of going slow with a 10 pound hound named Chachy - then this is the crew you need to spend time following!  It's not just about travel but the journey along the way.  I love their breakdown of the killer culinary tour of Boston's North End.  You have to stop by and continue to follow them on their journey of life.

The Travelling Fool

Bob's unique approach to travel and his love for history, cigars and his approach of 'traveling off the tourist path' got him on this list!  I also love how he created a section called The Man Cave that breaks down some pretty awesome gear, topics and of course cigars.  I also found his recent ultimate list of the best jobs for travel to be pretty enlightening.  Go check out his site or follow him @thetravelfool.

Lash World Tour

Lash has done a fantastic job of putting together monthly summaries of her travels.  I am working on building a wonderful blog just like her!  It's inspiring to see a Nomadic world traveler like Lash and I really love her 10 Reasons I'm Itching to Visit Iceland post.  If you want follow her fantastic travels, make sure to follow her @LashWorldTour

Mai Travel Site

One of the biggest challenges of being a travel blogger is putting together consistently great content.  A great way of accomplishing that is creating Travel Guides.  I love the breakdown of Mexico and the history behind each city to visit.  It's incredibly powerful to have a guide like this and it reads like a magazine.   Thank you so much for pulling this together @Federico

Two Bad Tourists

If you're looking for the best Gay City Guides site or the best way of planning a trip, you need to check out the Two Bad Tourists blog.  They've quickly been growing their site and have 30,000+ followers on Twitter and 8000+ Facebook fans.  They've also put together the 11 Must-Have Resources For Long Term Travelers which includes services for mail forwarding.  If you're looking for a fantastic well rounded resource, make sure to follow them @twobadtourists

World Travel Destination Guide

The guides continue to be a theme and that holds true for Suki who has created a fantastic guide to destinations across the globe.  His most recent post about the 5 fun activities to try in Tuscany, Italy was inspiring to me because I just got back from Rome.  As he states, many people are there looking at the lovely architecture but it's the food you can't miss!  Anyway,  the layout by country and detailed posts are a must read if you're looking for a fantastic way to spend an afternoon.  Thanks @TravelGuides2

The Travelling Feet

Some of the best blogs come where you don't expect to find them.  I stumbled upon The Travelling Feet and have been intrigued by the travels, Friday Foodies and love reading stories of random thoughts and meeting of strangers on the road.  If you're looking for some fantastic tips, tricks and detailed travel stories about Cambodia, Japan or Thailand, I would highly recommend stopping by or following Doi @travelling_feet.  You can also find her great Tips and Hints for Travelling Around Southeast Asia if you're interested. 

STRUXTRAVEL

Michael has compiled a fantastic guide and the Five Fascinating Facts About...French Polynesia which I never knew before.  It's a great way to educate yourself because just as Michael - it's on my bucket list to get there too.  Tahiti is one of those places that is so expensive but seems like a once in a lifetime experience.  I appreciate how Michael puts his thoughts together and makes it easy to understand through his destinations, gallery and tips of travel.  Thanks @StruxTravel

How To Travel With Pets

Anil has taken a unique approach to how he has become a digital nomad traveler.  I always see people on planes or traveling that are stressed out about their pet - whether that's a dog, cat or goldfish!  I love his post about the Basic Tips on Pet Travel and will continue to follow him as the tips continue to roll in.  Nice work @foxnomad!

All Colores

Ayelet put together a blog that hit me because of the Winter Wonderland section.  Sometimes I feel like I've been living in a Winter Wonderland and I love it too!  It's great to see someone dedicate a section of their blog to put together a fantastic breakdown of the locations they can travel to for an adventure in the winter vs. a Caribbean summer.  I love reading your work @AyeletWeisz

Aspiring Backpacker

Seb has done an amazing job with the format of this blog.  The blog posts, format and overall nature of this is incredible.  I love the post about The Best Beach Resorts in Mexico because I just got back and he breaks down some of the top places I could have stayed if I did the trip all over again.  I wish I would have read this before taking off!  Thanks @Aspiringbpacker

Sick On The Road

Trip planning, information about a specific illness or disease outbreak or just trying to find travel insurance.  This is the place for you to send some time with.  There are also travel health products on there too.  In a time when you want to go skydiving or some type of extreme sport, it's time to make sure you have the resources needed to survive whatever adventure you're on.  Be safe out there @sickontheroad

Venga, Vale, Vamos

With such a positive attitude and a love for travel, you'd fall in love with Kirstie's blog as soon as you click on the link above.  Her latest post (at the time of publishing) is the 16 Reasons 2016 Was the Best Year Ever.  Who can argue with that and since she has reviews of Vegas and Madrid, you must go say hi.  Enjoy the reading from @KirstieTravels 

Man vs. World

Following Simon throughout the world has been an adventure!  I love that he's taken the initaitive to put together an ebook about London's Best Riverside Pubs.  It's fantastic to see this and comparing Living in London vs. Life in New Zealand.  Follow Simon @themanvsworld for more adventures.  Keep it up Simon.

Backpacking Man

Jonny's focus on travel photography, blogging and just overall being an adventure junkie is seen through his entire section of Adventure Travel.  The most recent (as of time of posting this) was the 30 Photos of Hiking The Afghanistan Pamir.  What an adventure that must have been.  I can't wait to see the next adventure he goes on because I'm jealous of the adventures he's been able to take.  Go say hi @backpackingman

Wanderlust Storytellers

Jolene & Andrzej have put together a very unique approach to travel blogging with Family Holidays, Parent Escapes and Destinations.  Being a new parent, going through and getting inspiration from the Rome Italy section of this brought me back to our trip to Rome earlier this year.  It's fantastic to see reviews of the Recommended Luxurious Places to Stay in Italy.  Thank you @Wanderluststory

Ah Trini Travelogue

Rishi has put together a framework for reviewing continents in his blog full of adventure and we can't miss out on his 'wandering tours' like the latest one about Wandering Philadelphia.  Come on by to take a look a the creation that has fantastic intel for you!  Also go connect with @rishiray

Wrapping Up!

One of the most fantastic things about blogging is that everyone has an opinion of their trip, gear or just telling you amazing stories.  I for one am always on the lookout for the best travel backpack so my stories will revolve around backpacks. I highly recommend adding these bloggers to your list in 2017 and make sure to follow them on Twitter.  It's important to stay connected in the community and I would only hope for the best!  If you're looking for a front loading backpack, make sure to check out what I put together.
