5 Travel Bloggers that Inspire Me

I follow so many blogs, some for their detailed travel guides, travel hacks, impressive photography and others just for pure entertainment. But among those many blogs, a handful stand out as extraordinary in my eyes. The ones I read religiously, stalk on social media, feel like I know personally, those are my truly inspiring travel bloggers.

I like them all for varying reason but I have noticed a common theme that runs through my favourites. The writers and creators are all very relatable, their personalities radiate through every word they write and every picture they post. I also prefer travel blogs where they share their personal travel tales, recount their experiences – good and bad.

Breaking all the Rules, a Picnic and Scarborough Bluffs

Scarborough Bluffs is a picturesque part of the city. On the far east side of Toronto, hugging the shoreline lies the stark white cliffs that set the scene for the city’s most attractive beach. All a mere 30-minute drive from downtown Toronto (or an exceptionally long journey via public transit).
