If you are looking for the best up and coming travel bloggers on the planet, you have come to the right place! With this list there's a slight twist, however, as it concentrates on the best female rising stars of the travel blogging world. Be ready to get lost in hours of reading and for a strong desire to travel the world!
11. My Life's A Movie
Alyssa Ramos, of My Life's a Movie, is definitely a fast-rising star of the blogging world. Her Instagram account is one you won't be able to tear your eyes from, and her blog itself is breath of fresh air. From glamping in South Africa to somehow managing to get to 8 different islands in The Bahamas in less than 24 hours, Alyssa's blog is sure to fill anyone with wanderlust!
10. A Broken Backpack
Mel Giroux, the awesome lady behind A Broken Backpack is very much a newbie on the travel blogging scene but is fast becoming pretty well-known. Originally from Quebec in Canada, Mel now blogs about her adventures in Australia working, travelling, hitchhiking and even farming!
9. Teacake Travels
With a name like Teacake Travels, this blog could only be written by awesome English lady! Alice Nettleingham is the mastermind behind this absolutely beautiful travel blog about her adventures in Asia. Alice has an ever-growing follower base of over 10,000 across various social media channels and is definitely one to watch in 2016!
8. The Tourist Of Life
When someone is as young as 20 and has traveled to the same number of countries, you know their love for travel must have started from a young age! Yvonne Derksen, the wonderful writer behind 'The Tourist of Life', took her first trip to Paris with her parents when she was just 12 years old and has been in love with travelling the globe (and blogging about her adventures) ever since.
7. Flirting With The Globe
Despite the fact that Karisa Klee only set up Flirting With The Globe just over one year ago, and is one busy lady working full-time as an attorney in Atlanta, her blog is one of the best out there. What makes this blog special is the way she shows people that just because you work a 9-5 job doesn't mean you can't travel the world!
6. My Quarter Life Epiphany
Stephanie Kempker has introduced her readers to what she likes to call her 'Quarter Life Epiphany'. She was on holiday in Thailand three years ago, her very first trip abroad, and one day before she was due to fly home she had a mini epiphany about the way she was living her life and decided to cancel her ticket home and to live in Thailand for a while. A while turned to two years and was followed by a move to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil where she now lives and blogs about expat life.
5. Where is Tara?
Where is Tara? is a pretty appropriate name for this site as Tara travels so much it can be near on impossible to keep track of where she is!! This is an excellent blog to follow if you are an adventurous soul as there are plenty of adrenaline-fueled posts about kite-surfing, surfing, white water rafting and even free diving!
4. The Blog Abroad
Gloria Atanmo's travel blog is brilliant, with much of her travel writing getting widely shared across many online publications. Gloria isn't afraid to blog about topics other people wouldn't dare to touch, and she also leads the most adventurous life, making her blogs one of the most interesting sites out there.
3. I Am Aileen
Aileen is such a likable character that you can't help but keep returning to her site to see what she's up to every few days. Originally from the Philippines, she gave up a corporate job in a bank at the tender of age of 21 to chase her dreams and travel the world. Aileen is living proof that just because you are from a developing nation, or do not come from a rich family, does not mean you can break away and achieve your goal of travelling the world.
2. In A Faraway Land
When a girl with a serious passion for photography and an incurable addiction to travel starts a blog, In A Faraway Land is the fabulous outcome. Written by Marta Kulesza, who is originally from Poland but is currently photographing her way around the wonders of New Zealand, this is most certainly what many like to call Earth Porn and would encourage even arm-chair travelers to hop out of their chairs and get active!
1. Girl Vs Globe
Sabina Trojanova, the owner of GirlvsGlobe, describes herself as "...a girl with a passion for fashion, someone who revels in her travels and is always in the mood for food". Sabina is an inspiration for many young travel bloggers starting out and proves that even someone in her early twenties can make a seriously successful blog in a short period of time.
