Our Favorite Adventure Travel Blogs
For those of us in the adventure travel world, there is nothing like getting on a plane and landing in a foreign land: somewhere new and unknown, ripe for exploration. It’s what we all live for at Boundless Journeys. But at the same time, each of us at the office has a life here in Vermont, sometimes keeping us grounded for longer than we’d intended. When that happens, the next best thing is to take a short, virtual sabbatical to check in with the adventurers who inspire us, make us laugh, and make us think. From thoughtful travelers who explore where few others have been before, to writers specializing in capturing the magic and frustrations of living abroad – from the high profile to the obscure – these are just a few of the adventure travel blogs we love. Our favorite all-around travel blog: Carry On The in-house blog of Travel + Leisure magazine contains archives of information covering nearly every destination and subject the adventure traveler can think up. Our favorite adventure travel blog for the mature (but still adventurous!) traveler: The Adventure Geezer Don Mankin is an award-winning travel writer whose humorous and insightful reports on adventure travel for the 50+ set remind us that it’s never too late to embrace a lifetime of exploration. Our favorite high-adventure blog: Beyond the Edge National Geographic’s high-adventure blog captures stories from the field as writers, photographers and crew research the magazine’s compelling destination pieces. Posts in November, 2014 feature a team in Myanmar during a seven-week attempt to identify Southeast Asia’s highest peak. Our favorite destination-specific travel blog: 2 Summers This whimsical and informative blog is written by an American living in Johannesburg, South Africa, providing commentary on a city and country that can be both charming and frustrating by turns.
