Recommended Travel and Digital Nomad Blogs
The following list introduces digital nomad and travel blogs that I enjoy reading. I personally prefer following bloggers who discuss all aspects of travel and the digital nomad lifestyle, rather than only focusing on the travel and sightseeing part.
When deciding on which travel and digital nomad blogs enter my daily feed, those are the main ingredients I look for:
- Persistence- The ability to continue posting without disappearing.
- New Information- I want to learn something new of value, which can be either practical or inspirational.
- Fun to read- I like to be entertained while reading.
Each digital nomad blogger has their own unique characteristics and focus. To make it easier to explore, the following digital nomad blogs list will be divided to categories (e.g. Well written, Fun to read, etc.)
Johnny Vagabond– Wes Nations passed away recently. A true traveler who could think deep and write beautifully. Life…
Legal Nomads– Although the main theme of this blog is food which is something I prefer to eat instead of reading about, Jodi has outstanding writing capabilities. This blog is a well rounded example of how a travel blogger can be articulate, putting readers first, and communicating effectively via social media.
Fun to Read
Wandering Earl – Earl is a great guy who I had the privilege to meet in Romania. He has been on the move for more than 5,000 days, pretty amazing. To top it all, his posts sometimes have punch lines that can drop you to the floor. (Check out the interview I had with him)
Uncornered Market– Dan and Audrey are a couple traveling the world and writing interesting posts about their experiences. The mix of both personal stories together with high quality travel advice is much appreciated.
Making it Everywhere– I enjoy reading Mish and Rob’s posts and find them funny and informative, which also means that as marketing people, they are probably very good at their job. Mish and Rob are also creating relevant resources for nomads such as the Nomad Project map and an internal digital nomad community. Good work!
NeverEndingVoyage– Simon and Erin are one more couple of digital nomad which makes you believe nomadic relationships can be stable and successful. They don’t only create quality content, but also make the additional step and build cool apps which are helpful to Travelers. Respect for builders!
Nomadic Matt– Maybe the most popular travel blog in the world. Matt is giving great advice on saving money and sustaining constant traveling.
Adventurous Kate– Kate was one of the first bloggers I followed when I started my nomadic path. I like her posts, although her blog mainly targets solo Women travelers. Kate is doing a great job on both creating quality engaging content and marketing her blog with social media while actively leading and participating in the global travel industry.
Expert Vagabond– Matthew’s blog is a combination of interesting stories and good photography skills.
Roads and Kingdoms- An impressive travel magazine with in depth look on locations and important events taking place in the world. This is becoming one of my favorite travel reads due to high-quality of writing and a great ability to tell stories.
Matador Network– Pretty short bits of articles about Traveling and travel locations. Probably wouldn’t be on the list, but lately they are posting articles by Mary Sojourner, one of the best travel writers in the world. Maybe there is hope for the world.
MapHappy– A good resource which focuses less on travel stories and more on Practical Traveling.
Nomadic Notes– James of Nomadic notes has done something extraordinary. Other than creating another travel blog, he has gone deeper and provides useful tools for the entire global community of digital nomads. His articles and updates provide immense value, and I hope he keeps up the creating value for the community.
Almost Fearless– Christine has a talent for writing, and her blog has always been highly regarded as something different than other copy paste travel blog templates and topics out there. Her blog deals with a wide variety of topics from Travel, Remote work and Family life.
Tynan– Tynan has built an extraordinary project which has a unique voice in comparison to most travel blogs out there. The blog focuses on travel, productivity, mindset and practical tips.
Levels.Io– Pieter is one of the most prominent digital nomads out there. He builds stuff which supports digital nomads such as NomadList, Nomad forums, and Job sites. His blog deals a lot with coding (a required skill for building which you as a digital nomad should know about), in addition to articles about the future of work and travel.
New Travel Blogs I follow
Maverick Traveler– An interesting blog from James, which might not be for all (especially not for those who are fans of politically correctness). Regardless, and although some of the views there can trigger controversy, James is writing it as he sees it, and that’s definitely a quality most travel bloggers (including myself) in order to keep everyone happy. If everyone is happy, you are doing something wrong.
Dangerous Business– A recent discovery, Amanda’s blog is well written and enjoyable. We feel the same about Athens by the way.
Spartan Traveler– Interesting blog from Clayton about a variety of topics discussing Travel, Remote work and other cool topics.
TravelsofAdam– A high quality blog with some interesting articles and good city guides. Adam’s blog is also focusing on the LGBT community and the challenges they face while traveling around the world.
Camels and Chocolate– I enjoy reading Kristin’s blog, for two main reasons. Firstly, she is not a blogger, but a writer. Secondly, the concept of integrating high-quality photos while telling stories is fun, and well executed.
Goats on the Road– One more recent discovery. This Canadian couple is writing about a wide array of Travel related topics in a fun and knowledgeable way.
Tropical MBA– Dan and Ian have the best lifestyle design blog and podcast, and supply great tips on generating income while being location free. They have also created the awesome Dynamite Circle community which adds to their glamour!
Nomad Capitalist– Some interesting resources from Andrew about offshore living, wealth creation
and global citizenship.
Travel Tech Blogs
Too many Adapters– Great blog from Dave about “Technology for travelers”. Sim cards, gadgets, adapters, everything is there to prepare you well!
Fox Nomad– Anil is a cool blogger focusing on the technology of travel as well, while also discussing general travel topics.
Other Lists of Travel Blogs
JoaoLeitao Travel Blog List– I am covering only a handful of blogs in this curated and very personal preference list, so it makes a lot of sense to check Joao’s Travel blog list of more than 2,300 Blogs! This amazing number assures that even our BeocmeNomad Blog will be included there! Creating this list is a brilliant effort that should be applauded.
Here is another list, this time of influential Travel Posts which I think made a lot of impact and offer important value to the travel community.
And one more list, this time of the top travel and digital nomad podcasts, for those of you who prefer listening to reading.
As anything in life, things change. Please suggest updates and new additions to this list in the comments.
