The top 13 travel bloggers of 2013

Which travel bloggers are worth following in 2013?

After narrowing your nominations down to 26 finalists, I put it to a vote.

Here are the top 13 in alphabetical order:

Camels and Chocolate
Classe Tourist
Digital Nomad
The Flying Pinto
Go Big or Go Home
Go Visit Hawaii
Johnny Jet
My View From The Middle Seat
The Perrin Post
Solo Traveler
Wandering Earl

As usual, the polling wasn’t without a little drama. About a day before the poll closed, we had a suspicious surge of votes and there were multiple allegations of ballot-box stuffing. It led to the disqualification of one of the candidates, unfortunately.

All of these travel blogs are worthy of being bookmarked in 2013, and I hope you’ll read every one.

My sincerest congratulation to the top 13 vote-getters.

    I’ll bookmark and reference this list when needed. I definitely like the variety of travel blogs with some that emphasize photography and others that tend to gravitate more toward a text heavy and journalistic format. Unique and a variety of ways to present content always adds an added layer of texture to the travel blogosphere.

    Always bring a personal set of earplugs. Whether it is a child crying two rows ahead of you or an annoying person sitting next to you who wants to discuss his dream from last night of the plane crashing, it always helps to have a way to drown out that extraneous noise.
