There are so many creative and hardworking bloggers out there who have turned travelling into their full-time job. They have a fascinating perspective on life, travelling and writing, and produce inspiring content that encourages us to get out of our comfort zone, pack our bags, and embark on a new adventure. Currently, we are following those three bloggers wherever they go:
Hang Luggage Only is one of our favourite blogs because of their beautiful website design, the inspirational content that they are constantly producing, their professionalism and their outlook on travelling. In 2017, they travelled with Evaneos to Sri Lanka and in their first blog post about the trip they said: “The thing about Sri Lanka is that although there are 4 of us visiting together, none of us has been here before so planning would have been something of an arduous task without the folks over at Evaneos Travel who connect you with locals on ground. It’s different from a travel concierge service as they don’t personally handle any of your travel plans for you – it’s more like Airbnb for the travel industry – they connect you with local people, offering your authentic experiences at local prices too.” They talk in detail about their first day in Sri Lanka here, and about Anuradhapura here. We were so glad to read that if it was not for their itinerary with Evaneos Travel they would not have known to visit Polonnaruwa because it’s not a place that many people hear about. If you want to keep up with Hang Luggage Only and be swamped with amazing photos and a lot of inspiration, check out their Instagram here.
2. Nomadic Matt
New York Times best-selling author of How to Travel the World on $50 a Day, Matt’s website is giving advice to over 1,000,000 people a month on how to travel better, cheaper, and longer. In 2006 when Matt visited Chiang Mai, he met five backpackers who showed him that he didn’t have to be tied down to his job and that he didn’t need to be rich in order to travel. He met five people who were living his dream of travelling full-time. After that trip, he flew home, finished his MBA, quit his job, and, in July 2006, set out on an adventure around the world that continues to this day. Did his courageous story inspire you? If yes and you want to follow Nomadic Matt‘s adventures, you can follow his Instagram here.
