50 Kick-Ass Female Travel Blogs to Follow in 2014

You want to travel, but don’t know where to start. You want to start reading blogs for inspiration, but are overwhelmed by the options. New travel blogs are being started everyday; how on earth can you keep up?!

You can’t. So I’m here to help. Since I’m constantly being impressed by my peers (and am online, um, a lot), I thought I’d make it easy for you and share the 50 female travel blogs that inspire me the most.

Best Female Travel Blogs 2014

Hover over me to pin!

Some notes about the list:

  • There are a lot of amazing travel blogs out there. I focused on solo females leading lives of adventure (often on a budget!), because I figured that’s who you’d identify with best.
  • Also, I chose blogs that have personal stories of growth and inspiration (and not just “5 things to do in”), because I like to pretend these ladies are my friends!
  • They’re organized alphabetically under seven categories. Not to pigeonhole any of the blogs — most of them could surely fall under many — but hopefully they’ll help you narrow down which ones you want to follow.
  • If you’re looking for a way to follow multiple blogs, I recommend Feedly, which is a free RSS feed manager.
  • Or, follow this Twitter list that Brigid of Becoming the B Boss was kind enough to create!

Some of these blogs are hugely popular, while others are still growing. I hope you’ll find a few you haven’t read before, and that they’ll inspire you to travel in 2014. I know each and every one of them inspires me!

Top 50 Female

Travel Blogs for 2014



A Dangerous Business

I love Amanda Williams’ blog because she always tells it like it is. She’s not worried about what others think; she shares honest feelings on balancing real life and travel.

Adventurous Kate

Kate McCulley is pretty much THE solo female traveler. She writes tons of real and funny posts that encourage ladies everywhere to travel. I was lucky enough to meet her at TBDItaly earlier this year!

Post you’ll love: Dear Ladies: This Can Be Your Life, Too.

Anywhere But Home

Naomi Alyssa was one of my roomies at TBEX Dublin, and though I was sick, I could tell she knew how to have fun. She’s a great writer and shares fantastic adventures over on her blog.

Fleeting Life

Traveler, dancer, writer, goofball? Christina Gmyr is a girl after my own heart. Her blog has a little bit of everything, which is why I like it.

Helen in Wonderlust

There aren’t enough people writing about Africa, but no matter, because we’ve got Helen Davies! She writes about everything from volunteering to gorilla trekking.

Post you’ll love: Is it Safe to Travel to Africa as a Solo Woman?

Monkeys & Mountains

Laurel Robbins is a kindred spirit: a lover of animals and the outdoors. Her blog has a unique layout you’re sure to enjoy.

That Backpacker

The Young Adventuress

I was tempted to put Liz Carlson under “Photography” because her Instagram photos are so bomb, but I decided to go with adventure instead — because she has so many of them! In the following post, she defines what “adventure travel” means to her.

Post you’ll love: 5 Myths about Adventure Travel

Twenty-Something Travel

Though Stephanie Yoder’s blog may be about adventure, my favorite posts are her reflections on dreams, goals, and female travel.

Post you’ll love: Female Solo Travel is NOT the Problem



Candice Does the World

Candice Walsh is hysterical, so I’ll let her say it herself: “My life is a tangled mess of unfortunate coincidences, bizarre experiences, and shady characters. You will find no grandiose exclamations of life lessons here, nor any ‘Top 5 beaches to get in touch with your inner yogi’ shit.”

Post you’ll love: How I learned to love Anne of Green Gables

Suzy Guese

Suzy Guese has a fun, honest way of talking about travel (writing with a red-headed temperament?) that makes her seem like a real person. Clearly, she’s also wise: “Even for long trips, don’t ever bring more bags than you have hands.”

Post you’ll love: Packing Errors: Mistake That Nearly Cost Me a Few Arms

The Everywhereist

This was one of the first travel blogs I started reading, and it still reigns as one of my faves. It’s not your standard “travel advice” blog — it’s more just Geraldine DeRuiter being freaking hilarious and eating cupcakes. (Plus adorbs photos with her hubby.)

Post you’ll love: WTF Weds: Harem Pants

Travel Yourself

This is the only video blog on the list, because I don’t generally have a lot of patience for videos. But Cailin O’Neil’s videos are short, informative, and funny as hell. Also, SLOTHS.

Post you’ll love: Facts About Sloths! Cute, Adorable, and Fascinating!

yes and yes

It was incredibly difficult to put Sarah Von Bargen’s blog into a category, because it belongs in all of them! (Which is kind of why she started the blog.) I went with funny, because I totally jive with her personality. She shares travel tips, fun jobs, and general awesomeness.

Post you’ll love: How Do I Become a Grown-Up?



Legal Nomads

It was tough to decide if Jodi Ettenberg’s blog should go under photography or storytelling — because she does both so impeccably. An ex-laywer turned foodie/travel blogger, her food photos are particularly wonderful.

Runaway Juno

Juno has a positive energy I love — and her photos are just beautiful. She offers a great mix of content: inspirational, visual, and helpful.

Bacon is Magic

Food, food, food! If you like to eat it, you’ll love Ayngelina Brogan’s blog. I’ve gotten to hang out with her in person, and she’s as inspiring and real as she is in her blog.

Further Bound

Hannah Loaring has a way with words that makes everything sound like poetry. You’ll love her thoughtful essays on life, love, and travel.

  38. Susan, I want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly of your first marathon experience? At which points were you loving life? Which were you questioning why you ever would do such a thing? Which did you doubt your abilities? Which had you quiet and introspective?

    Running a marathon can often pull out a full layer of emotions. It really is a journey. Making it to the starting line is a huge feat in itself. Can you tell I’ve coached over 500 marathon runners over the years?

    If you want help planning out your training for the next one, yes, you will be doing another one as outlandish as it sounds today, reach out to me! I’d love to help.

    And on the front of 50 Kick Ass Female Travel Blogs, you just gave me far too much homework! I had other work to do. : ) I want to read and connect with them all. I want my site to be a huge help like yours and theirs are.

    A shout out to each of these authors and the great work they are doing. I look forward to sharing with each other.

    Big Congratulatory Hug to you, Susan!

    Jeff B recently posted..Don’t Be Fooled. Olympians are Multinationals.My Profile

    • JEFF! Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such a supportive comment. I’m glad you’ve found some inspirational ladies here to follow. They rock (just like you!).

      I had no idea you’d coached so many marathoners. It was definitely a journey — quite similar to a big trip, I thought. The good: pre + miles 1-15. I was loving life and so excited! The bad: miles 16-17. I’d lost the magical glow and was just tired. The ugly: miles 21 + 22. It had started pouring rain, and I was exhausted. After that, though, I realized how close I was and had a great time. Accomplished my goal of not walking and not crying! Haha.

      I’m in Ventura for the next month. We should catch up soon!

  39. Hi Susan! Thanks for this post – it can be hard to find a list of really good travel sites. I was glad to see some of my favorites listed here – The Everwhereist always brightens my mood.

    Since you seem to enjoy tales of the slightly off-the-wall traveler, I think you might like my site Year of the Durian. For the last two years I’ve been traveling in Southeast Asia with my husband using the durian fruit as an excuse to get waaay out into some pretty random places that most tourists don’t get to see. We hang out with farmers and get an inside peek at culture, political and social movements, and environmental causes related to fruit farming (gardeners in most places think squirrels are annoying. Try elephants). I’d love it if you dropped by sometime and said hello 🙂 Thanks again for a great post!
    Lindsay recently posted..Recipe | Durian Fudge Balls Vegan-styleMy Profile

    • Hey Lindsay! Thanks for stopping by. I’m glad you enjoyed the post. I just checked out your blog — what a fun concept! Though I have to be honest; I am not a fan of the durian. But those fudge balls do look interesting! xo

  78. Just found your website and this post. Love this list…all my favorites and some new ones to explore:)

  79. Hey! I love your stuff, and have just started in a blog and would like to add a link to this in my next blog. I did a bunch of R&D and would like to share that. Is that ok?

  80. Hi Susan, Great list, lots of my friends, colleagues and people I admire are on it. I’m so thrilled to see women encouraging each other to get out there and see the world. For 2015, please consider adding some female Indian bloggers, there are quite a few really good ones I know personally. Also, I founded the WeGoSolo community for female solo travellers, and though I am currently taking a break from the weekly tweetchat, the hashtag is still a good source of information, and you can find some great female solo travellers using it. Thanks so much!

    • Thanks for the great comment, Mariellen! I’ve used the #wegosolo tag before and am happy to hear it is still a good source of info. Which Indian bloggers do you recommend? I am planning on releasing a new list next month and would love to feature some of them!

  81. Susan what an incredible list! So many fab new ladies I didn’t know about and now get to check out – thank you!

  83. It’s 2015 and I’m still going through this list! I love it and it’s helped me make so many great blog discoveries.

    Also I just read Mariellen’s comment from a week ago, I’m a female travel blogger from India! Hello hello!

  84. Awesome list, Susan! It made me discover other travel bloggers! 😀 Will you have a 2015 list soon?

    I hope you could consider my blog and add an Asian woman to your list: http://iAmAileen.com

    At 21, I quit my job to travel the world and today, I am a digital nomad and entrepreneur traveling through countries 😀 Thank you Susan!
