Presenting my second installment of The Best New Travel Blogs You Haven’t Heard Of Yet. After the phenomenal feedback from my first article on new travel bloggers I decided to turn this into a monthly feature here at the HoliDaze. So, if you happen to be a new blogger within the last 12 months — or know of an awesome new travel blog — then feel free to submit your recommendations at the bottom of this post for consideration in the upcoming edition this April.
Now although the following blogs are listed in no particular order, that does not apply for this first one. My buddy Brad is a downright badass and currently attempting to corner the adventure travel niche with stories like no other. And let me say, he is doing a downright awesome job. I first discovered his blog back in the middle of 2013 when he had a mere half-dozen posts and have been hooked ever since, literally salivating when I see that “new post on myWanderlist” email in my inbox.
Don’t expect weekly updates from this blog but do expect each post to be like no other you have ever read. I am amazed that more people have not found this blog yet and making it a personal mission to spread the word. My only regret is that when Brad came to Indonesia I was busy staring in a tourism film and didn’t have the opportunity to travel with him on his quest for monkey brains. Although he was unable to find them, that didn’t stop him from having some amazing adventures.

Quit Your Job – Sell Your Stuff – Travel Abroad
Chris and Angela started there blog a year ago and are doing amazingly well so far — so good in fact that I guarantee that most people reading this post have already heard of their cleverly named blog. After they decided to (you guessed it) quit their jobs, sell their stuff and move abroad they picked Thailand. In fact I had the pleasure of meeting them while I was passing through Chiang Mai last year and found them to be amazingly wonderful people. I get immense joy out of reading their blog and highly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Thailand or wondering how to quit their job and move abroad.

A Travel Inspiration Blog Sharing Photos, Stories, Reviews, And Tips
Over the last month or two I’d seen various people sharing posts from Rhonda and Mike’s blog but didn’t actually getting around to reading it myself until the last couple of weeks. They had me hooked from the start! It’s a perfection combination of catchy writing, impressive photography, useful insight/advice, and of course a stylish web site as well. Plus I also find them very easy to relate to. They love culture/history, hate rushing through countries just for bragging rights (“I visited XX number of countries this year!”) and are no good at traveling light. Not to mention the fact that recently they have been visiting some amazing locations in Europe. Count me in!
Independent Female Adventure Travel
I’ll be honest, I haven’t read much of Anastasia’s blog yet — I just discovered it a couple of weeks ago — but what I have seen I love. Not only does she have a cool style of writing that is both informational and inspiring but she takes amazing photos. Some of her posts have given me great insight into places I’ve never heard of or never thought of visiting. Well done Anastasia! 🙂

Culture, Food And Photos From Around The Globe
Why do I love Beth’s blog? It’s simple: she is a recent college graduate who has decided that rather than pursue the “American Dream” (ugghh) she has instead decided to pursue her own dreams and travel the world. From this June onward she has a jam-packed travel schedule that will take her through some of the best European countries. Might as well start following her now and see what adventures she gets herself into 😉

At barely one week old (yes, seriously) Britnee and Mark’s blog is by far the newest in this edition of The Best New Travel Blogs. As such, don’t expect there to be tons of posts just yet. However after seeing it and reading all their posts I immediately wanted to include it in this list. Although they still have two months before their last day of work they certainly have some exciting adventures ahead of them. My only hope is that they do not stop after one year but rather continue on living a nomadic lifestyle. Hopefully by shining a light on them and their voyage we as readers can help give them the support to do just that 🙂
