One of my first steps in planning my next adventure starts with figuring out where to go next! In the past, I have literally spun a globe and jetted off to where my finger landed, in fact, that experience led me on a solo trip to Turkey which to date is still my richest and most memorable travel expedition! These days though I am a little more strategic in my planning process! Being a travel blogger I often read other travel blogs to get not only great and helpful tips but initial inspiration! My lovely friend Aubrey from The Love Assembly has inspired my next trip to the Philippines and my main man Daniel from Dan flying Solo has prompted me to book flights next year to Sri Lanka!
Below are a list of my favourite travel blogs and personal inspirations for both travelling and living a life outside of our comfort zones and daily routines! I hope they inspire you too :)!
