10 Travel Vloggers to Follow in 2018
Below is a list, in no particular order, of travel vloggers that inspire us, amuse us, entertain us and make us strive to be better storytellers. We adore each and every vlogger below, so take the time to check them all out. Each one is amazing in their own right.
Kara and Nate
One of our all time favorite travel vloggers / vlogging couples, Kara and Nate are traveling to 100 countries by 2019 and they have covered an INSANE amount of territory. If you know me, you know that I love cruising, traveling with Stef and being an entrepreneur. This couple does everything that Stef and I love and we admire them for it!
This couple is on the grind. Not only do they produce a truly gorgeous vlog, but they post a weekly interview series called The Travel Hustle AND they offer weekly travel hacking tips called The Frequent Flyer blog. But wait, there’s more. #AMBITIOUS #HUSTLEISREAL Nate produced an e-book called The Mistake Fare Manual where he teaches you how to find mistake fares and short term flight deals. They also produced a course called 30 Days to Becoming a Travel Hacker. Seriously, I adore this couple. I love their entrepreneurial spirit and their desire to meet and exceed their goals. Kara and Nate are some truly fantastic human beings.
Fair Warning: If you watch their vlog, there goes your weekend. Seriously addictive show that will inspire you, make you feel good and take away your Saturday. 🙂

Loving all things Norwegian Cruise Line, we found xameliax’s first cruise vlog and thought she was amazing. xameliax is a UK Vlogger who talks about it all. Her channel covers bit of everything including travel, lifestyle, beauty, makeup, cooking, fitness, etc. Well produced and very entertaining, you’ll love her channel.

Sonia’s show is so good and looks so good it should be a headline series on the Travel Channel. Seriously, I haven’t seen a host this engaging or entertaining since Samantha Brown. Watch Sonia on Youtube now, because she’ll be on a major network soon enough.

Very Unofficial Travel Guides
Stefanie and I found the Very Unofficial Travel Guides while doing research for our upcoming Transatlantic trip. We somehow stumbled onto his NCL Epic Journey, Day 4 (Thanks Internet!) and what we were greeted with was host Morgan saying he’s on the Epic, he’s tired and drunk. LOL. His delivery and honesty is addicting. His martini flight video has been played here a few dozen times. Stefanie and I think Morgan is equal parts hilarious and awesome. We love this video so much.

We came across Solo Cruiser while doing research for a friend who wanted to join us on a trip. What we found was an amazing resource of truly thoughtful travel vlogs. Julia offers solo cruising advice, ship and port reviews as well as some really excellent cabin and ship tours. Definitely a must sub.

Jim Zimmerlin has been on every cruise ship in the universe or at least he’s really close. Jim has that smooth VO goodness that makes you wonder if he does commercials or radio. Very open and honest reviews, Jim let’s you know the good and the bad and his particular style is fun to watch.

Ben and David’s honest cruise reviews and overviews are fantastic. Very detailed, incredibly honest and all kinds of entertaining. We love these two. Warning You’ll end up watching all 60+ videos of theirs for sure.

Tips for Travellers
“Tips For Travellers helps you to make more of your precious travel time and money with travel inspiration, tips, advice and money saving ideas.” That’s putting it mildly. Host Gary has a MASSIVE library of travel video tips. This is a treasure trove of traveler tip goodness. We found Gary when looking up bad cabin types. His videos are engrossing. We came for the 10 cruise cabins to avoid and stayed for a few dozen more videos.

Host Amy and crew take you all over every cruise they visit. This channel is a must for anyone who wants to know the REAL of a cruise. Amy is always informative, talking about how long it takes to actually get on board, what she thinks of the ship (Saw the MSC vlog, UGH! Sorry Amy!) and giving us the realest look at cruising. Amy and her crew keep it fun.
