With 17 Border Crossings just around the corner – on Wharton Center’s Pasant Theatre stage on March 26 – I wanted to take a look at some neat travel blogs. If you have the slightest interest in traveling, be sure to check out one of these before your next trip.
Want to travel but are low on cash? Kash Bhattacharya of The Budget Traveler is a seven-year traveler whose motto is “travel in style on a budget.” Named National Geographic‘s Travel Blogger of 2016, he chronicles the best and cheapest hostels in any country, along with fun and affordable things to do while you’re there. Definitely one to check out if you’re looking to explore on a budget.

Husband and wife duo Nataly and Murad Osmann have been telling their own stories of crossing borders since their first trip to Barcelona five years ago. Since then, they’ve gained an impressive Instagram following with #FollowMeTo, picturing Nataly holding Murad’s hand around the world.
This blogger moved to Paris with plans to stay for only four months — but she never left! Instead, Caris Olsson is Paris’ top photographer and is the go-to blog for aspiring Parisians like herself. Learn her style tips, where to eat, and what to eat in Paris and more cities, as she expands her blog elsewhere in Europe.
A lot of us can identify with Alice Tate of Flash Anthology. She is a London-based blogger and PR manager with a serious travel bug that oftentimes is appeased on short weekend trips. In addition to travel, she shares her tips on food, fitness and beauty. There’s something for everyone in the Flash Anthology!
Nicole Gulotta started Eat this Poem to combine her two passions: food and writing. Since then she’s explored the idea of the best book stores/book spots for even the stay-at-home explorer. Eat This Poem is a great site for any literary fiend with info on great bookie locations all over the U.S. and internationally…including a section on Ann Arbor, MI.
