Being a newbie blogger, I have been reading heaps and heaps of other travel blogs over the past few months to learn the tricks of the trade I guess you’d say, and to gather some inspiration. So I thought I would start this month with sharing my favourite articles from September.
I only just recently discovered Amanda’s blog (don’t hate on me) but I really enjoy her posts as I feel like she is writing them for me, or other young females like me. I especially like the bit about drunk shoppping. Drunk online shopping I have done, but walking around a mall with an alcoholic beverage in hand, now that sounds like fun to me!
I have really loved reading all of Melissa’s Nomad Adventure posts, but I particularly liked this review and round-up. It sounds like she had an amazing time over there (how could you not) and Nomad Adventure Tours looks like a great company to go with.
I haven’t been to Dublin yet but I think this weekend away post would be the perfect way for me to start my time off there when I eventually make it to the Emerald Isle. And seeing Lady Gaga wouldn’t be too awful either.
Christine is the Queen of happy, inspirational posts in my opinion. I read her writing and I always seem to feel better. She can put a smile on my dial even when I am having a shocking day. I am so happy for her that she has found her place in New York – I wish her the best of luck!
These photos just blew my mind, they are pure perfection. This post is a summing up of the couple’s time in Europe – looking at these photos you may think they had a pretty great time there.

This is another blog I have only just discovered but I really loved reading this post, inspired by The Planet D at TBU last month. The main point that resonated with me is overcoming fear. I am a bit of a chicken, but travel is the one thing in life that helps me/forces me to step out from inside my bubble and comfort zone and conquer my fears. I congratulate Victoria on conquering her fear and I know she won’t regret pursuing her dream of becoming a professional travel blogger. I will be reading along that is for sure.
I am a bit of a fan of Amanda’s blog, pretty much because she is like me in her travelling ways and mixes group travel with solo travel. I enjoyed reading about her time with Intrepid in Eastern Europe as I haven’t done a tour with Intrepid as of yet, but this post was different. It showed how much Amanda changed over her two month trip, and I think this exact experience will happen to me when I take three months off next year to visit the Americas. And it excites me!
Even though I am not on this list (sad face) I think it is great and it helped me discover some great new blogs, who I am sure will feature in my wrap-up next month. It was an awesome idea of Simon to showcase not the best blogs but the nicest people. And I agree with him 100% – the people in the travel world I have shared 140 characters with over the past few months have been so nice, warm, inviting and friendly. So kudos to you Simon. Just next time, remember me okay?
