I have decided to share some blogger love with you. What does that mean? That means that I want to share some of the blogs, Instagram pictures and pinterest peeps that I follow. This week I will be focusing on Travel Bloggers that I have met at conferences or that other bloggers suggested. I hope you will drop by their blogs or feeds and follow them if you feel so inclined.
I read their content.
I look at their pictures.
I listen to their podcasts.
Social media is a world that so many are involved in and yet the amount of people that you know about is so small. So here are my picks for this week:
Travel bloggers/Travel Writer:
Without a Path – Joe Bauer – this is new to me but I was listening to his podcast interview of Girl Gone Travel. This was a great interview and I look forward to listening to more of his podcasts.
Girl Gone Travel – Carol Cain was the opening Keynote speaker at TBEX Fort Lauderdale and my friends that were there absolutely loved her.
Women on the Road – Leyla Giray Alyanak is a travel journalist and blogger. I’ve met her in Barcelona and had wonder conversations about being an Canadian expat. I loved her blog because it covers a variety of topics in depth and with a personal view. This 50+ female point of view is something that I can appreciate.
Anita’s Feast – Anita and Tom are a travel blogger and photographer couple that live in Switzerland. They write primarily on food and wine. I met Anita in Barcelona on our TBEX fam trip. She was wonderful company on our very busy tour of the city. You may want to read her take on street art in Barcelona.
30DayAdventures – I met Marc Smith last week at the VEMEX conference in Toronto. He is, however, a Vancouver based travel blogger. His entertaining barb over and funny banter with the other travel bloggers piqued my curiosity about his blog. He covers destinations for 30 days. Check out his recent trip to New Brunswick: hotel, restaurants, market and attractions all wrapped together in various posts.
Thrifty Momma’s Tips – Paula Schuck is an award winning journalist and full time blogger. Her 8 part series on World Vision in Colombia is truly a wonderful testament to what this organization’s impact is in a developing country. Her raw and gripping travel stories about her visit last year are wonderful. I am grateful that she wrote about Colombia (my native-land).
Wandertooth – Geoff and Kate are a Canadian couple that live abroad. I met Geoff at TBEX in Barcelona and watched him as he took wonderful pictures on our fam trip to Barcelona. He has a wonderful eye and I love seeing his beautiful pictures. It just makes me happy. You have to know I would pick a picture from Cartagena, Colombia to show his talents.
Hola from #Cartagena, #Colombia Located up top on Colombia’s northern Caribbean coast, Cartagena’s bright and colorful historic centre is a @unescoworldheritage site. The city is filled with eye candy galore, and when we visited, we could barely put our cameras down, taking photos of fruit vendors, kids playing football in the narrow streets, crumbling buildings, and buildings restored to their full glory.
BarcelonaBlonde – Jessica is a wonderful young American woman that lives and writes in Barcelona, Spain. I love her pictures of my new ‘favourite’ city in the world. I cannot wait to return and have a cafe cortado with her.

Family, Food and Travel – Kerrie is a blogger that cooks really well and travels with her kids. Her pinterest board is a great combination of food and travel. Her blog is pretty awesome too. The pictures of the food will make you drool.
Hecktic Travels – Dalene and Pete recently spoke at a Travel Massive event in Calgary and one of my favourite bloggers posted it in her feed. So of course I had to investigate. I fell in love with their pinterest boards because they are so ORGANIZED. You know me and organization. I love it.
Continents and Condiments – Cédric Lizotte is a young French Canadian journalist that was also on our fam Trip to Barcelona. He was fascinating (and at time amusing) to listen to because he was fairly liberal in his sharing of stories. A season food and travel blogger, I follow his ‘magazine’ on Facebook because I love reading his content both in English and in French. I like that he posts some of his articles from different publications there also.
