Weekend Wanderlust – 7 Travel Blogs That Will Make You Want to Start Planning a Vacation!

The weather in Iceland this weekend felt like a cold, damp fall day. Conditions bounced from complete white out blowing snow blizzard, to sideways rain. The common denominator being high wind. This kind of weather makes me want to stay under a blanket on my couch with endless warm beverages. I.e. NOT being able to go about my usual plans of exploring around Iceland.

So when Iceland weather forces me to stay inside, I dream of our next vacation.  With our Switzerland trip over and Ireland still two months away, I have been having some serious wanderlust lately! And who better to help than my fellow blogging buddies?!

I think the best way to get info about a place is from bloggers. Unlike big travel websites, bloggers give you real life accounts of what places are like. They research places off the beaten path and unique restaurants, and then give their authentic opinion about those things. I love looking to blogs for travel inspiration!

So today I’ve rounded up seven of my favorite travel bloggers to help fuel your wanderlust and inspire you to plan your next vacation!

Snow in Tromso

Ok clearly I am obsessed with Iceland, but I love all Nordic countries! Van from Snow in Tromoso is blogging about living as an expat in Tromso, Norway. She posts some seriously helpful tips about travel in Greenland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark – Nordic for the win!
