As a travel blogger myself, The Social Girl Traveler, there are several travel bloggers I admire for their amazing creativity, talent, and sense of adventure.

These travel bloggers literally influenced me to ‘get out and travel’. 

Whether it was through their writing or creative media, they've inspired me to travel the world. 

Here are the top 10 travel bloggers you should already be following.

1. Dan Flying Solo

Daniel is a British bloke who works with Skyscanner and LonelyPlanet on the regular. 

He’s an amazing writer with tons of useful tips, and is an even better photographer. I had the privilege of traveling with Daniel and working with him in India. There was never a dull moment! 

His photography has also been published in Beautiful Destination, Travel & Leisure, National Geographic, Travel Channel and Matador Network.

2. A Broken Backpack

Melissa is a Canadian doll. She has no filter and is such a warm hearted individual. 

YOU MUST catch her on Snapchat or Youtube. She's either hitchhiking though SE Asia or sharing her travel shenanigans.
