Wandering Earl – Earl’s been traveling since 1999 (blogging since 2009) and avoids the vague fluffery of most travel blogging. He tends to find interesting places to visit, instead of staying in the most-visited places and repeating the same posts about the same places.
Atlas Obscura – Atlas Obscura is sort of a travel site that’s almost too hip, but covers a lot of obscure places that are more adventurous.
Falling All Over the World – Gina and I graduated together, and then she moved to Italy and got married. Which isn’t a bad way to do it. She writes about her travels around Italy and surrounding countries, as well as reflections on the Midwest.
