Need Another Holiday
Here’s one from Manchester-based blogger, Clare. When traveling all around the world, she sees a lot of places not like her humble home, but unlike a lot of jetsetters, she a fulltime mum with a fulltime job. She always needs another holiday, and her blog has gone through a lot of changes over the past year. The new arrival of “Holiday Baby” is the latest. Even so, she always manages to include insightful advice for parents and musings on motherhood, alongside recommendations for city breaks in Europe.
One thing to be aware of, especially for busy and cash-strapped parents, if you have to be on the lookout for delays on your trip. According to Bottonline.co.uk, airlines don’t always give passengers what they’re due — namely financial compensation for bumped seats, and delayed flights.
“always on lookout for delays” – maybe review?
So, keep that in mind when traversing the EU, or the world. Just because you’re a parent, doesn’t mean you don’t have the right to fair travel with your child.
Eff It I’m On Holiday
This relatively new travel blog is from Vlad. He’s a young and enthusiastic traveler who explores the best of what Europe has to offer. He also manages to hold down a full-time job. That in and of itself is amazing. His trips take him all over Europe, and he’s got some great posts on Malta, Barcelona, and Portugal. What sets him apart though is his excellent photography. Make sure you check out his guides to improving your holidays.
A Lady in London
Want more travel in your life? Want to get to London more often? Then, Julie’s blog might be for you. Despite its namesake, it doesn’t cover just the capital. She goes all over the world, from Kosovo to Kenya.
On The Luce
When it comes to traveling, Lucy is an expert. Her blog on travel is excellent proof of that. After traveling for more than 20 years, you might think she’s seen it all. But, she hasn’t. She continues to explore Western Canada and other obscure areas of the world. And, because she’s been doing this so long, she’s developed something she called ‘budget-luxe’ — which many newbie travelers will find refreshing.
No matter where you want to go or what you want to see while there, you can find the facts you need in an online travel blog. Aside from the inside scoop, these bloggers keep their readers on top of the latest updates on traveling to their favorite destinations.
