Excellent Travel Reads: Blogs, Mags and More May 01 2012, 1 Comment

Many of you ask us where to read more about travel, travel tips, travel safety, travel insurance, basically where can you read more about travel in all kinds shapes and forms. To be honest, there are probably more travel blogs and websites than any other category..there are so many adventurous people from all over the world that chronicles their journeys. Many do it for fun, and mostly for an audience of family and friends. Others do it for a living, at least temporarily to support their vagabondish lifestyles, and there are everything froms smaller one man show blogs, to large, contributor driven and advertising funded travel websites. They all have one thing in common:  a love of travel and discovering new places, inspiring things, meeting people and encountering new adventures.

Here are a few of our favorites. These are but a few, there are many, many more that we will get around to later:

So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
