My dream of traveling and writing started with these bloggers and I feel a connection to them that many fellow adventure-seekers can relate to.

So if you’re looking to add a the best travel blogs to follow, I recommend these kick-ass bloggers, each who I read on the reg’:

I am so thankful that I joined the Digital Nomad Girls Facebook group in early 2016. I have connected with woman all over the world as they work and travel, mostly independently. I totally dig their in-depth Destination Guides on their blog that detail what it’s actually like to call that particular city home.

The minds behind Digital Nomad Girls often schedule meetups in various cities and retreats such as the Coboat retreat sailing around the Mediterranean Sea while exchanging ideas and building our businesses.

I absolutely adore Adventurous Kate’s blog. She’s honest and real about her travels as a solo woman and I love that she doesn’t sugarcoat the struggles of traveling like other blogs. Kate now writes about her life in Harlem and since I used to call Harlem home too, she gets all the cool points. AdventurousKate.com

Also, follow her on Snapchat (and her Instagram stories) and because this travel blogger does. it. right. You go Glen Coco.

All of my trips so far have been as close to free as you can get. And this is all because one day I stumbled upon ThePointsGuy.com and my life as a traveler was forever changed. I’m heading to Thailand in September for a grand total of $100 thanks to implementing tips from this blog.

I anticipate the first of the month every month to read TPG’s reviews of the best credit card offers for the month and how I can maximize my spending with earning more miles, and therefore, more travels!

Interested? Don’t wait to check it out!

Young Adventuress

Young Adventuress was my first-ever blog I began to follow. I event spent my lunch breaks reading about Liz’s adventures and wondering how I could do the same. And here I am, 3 years later ready to embark on a 100% Digital Nomad lifestyle traveling the world.

I can thank Young Adventuress for making me realize my “crazy” dreams of traveling the world weren’t so far-fetched at all.

I really, really, appreciate Nomadic Matt’s committment to writing honestly and speaking the truth about the hardships of not only traveling close the full-time, but also managing a massive travel webite (and growing!) while building his brand.

Nomadic Matt is less of a personal blog and more of a full-fledged guide to help travelers take the plunge, travel on a cheap budget, stay safe abroad, find cheaper flights, and a variety of useful knowledge.

Johnny FD is Chiang Mai based location-independent worker and has made a name for himself in the Thai expats and Digital Nomad circles.

If you’re considering a full-time remote lifestyle, especially in the Digital Nomad hub of Chiang Mai, Johnny FD should be the first blog to add to your bookmarks bar. His transparent income reports are also especially helpful if you need some tangible numbers to weight cost of living while building a start up or just simply making ends meet.

Okay, okay. You got me. Buzzfeed Travel is more of a content curator than an actual blog itself, HOWEVER, because it curates the most beneficial, instructional content from various writers and third-parties, you can expect a one-stop-shop for all things travel.

Hi, I’m Chelse! I am a Digital Nomad obsessed with traveling the world and seeking adventure beyond the 9-5 office life. When I turned 25 I decided that I was going to stop making excuses and do what I’ve always dreamed. I went from having 0 stamps in my passport to 7 countries in 7 months. I encourage anyone who wants to live a Digital Nomad lifestyle to just buy the ticket first, and figure out the rest later!
