2014 was my first year of travel blogging and I never expected such a positive feedback! I met so many awesome people and friends, I had such amazing opportunities, worked with some great companies and I think I found my true passion.
Travel blogging is something I never expected to end up doing. But the last few months prove me that Travelling Buzz has a big future and I’m ready for it.
During my travel blogging experience I found some amazing travel blogs which I love reading on a daily basis. They insipire me, they make my days more interesting and my Facebook wall brighter. In other words, these are my top 10 favourite rising travel blogs of 2014.
1. Give for Granted
Jenna is such an amazing and positive person! She’s a Canadian expat settling in in Germany. I love reading her stories on her Give For Granted travel blog where she shares useful information about travel and various destinations. She even gives her readers a free e-book that she wrote – How to travel on a budget: Cut your expenses in half. Check it out! She also makes super interesting and funny vlogs on YouTube. She’s not new to blogging but I’m sure you would want to check it out if you haven’t already.
2. Girl vs Globe
Sabina from Girl vs Globe is share her stories in such an interesting way and I always find myself reading her blog for hours. I love her unique style and her posts about female empowerment. Sabina has been in many countries in Africa, Asia and Europe and you can find a lot of useful travel tips and info about many destinations. She is also a great singer 😉
3. Travelling Weasels
Laura was my travel blogging buddy since I started Travelling Buzz. Along with her boyfriend Tanbay she shares amazing tips for House sitting. She even wrote an e-book about it. On their blog Travelling Weasels you can also find useful info about many destinations such as Australia, Spain, Germany, China, etc.

Raza is from Bosnia & Herzegovina but now she lives in the US. She started blogging recently but I feel she has a lot to tell the world.

She’s a full time student with a job and trying to fit travel into her busy schedule.

The blog offers great travel tips for various European destinations, part time travelling solutions and a lot of information about Bulgaria.
