They are the women who drop everything in the middle of the week, day, or night, pack their bags in a few minutes (because they are partially pre-packed all the time) and storm out into the wild to get a glimpse of that special something that suddenly inspired them to go on a trip of a lifetime. Well, I might be exaggerating, but just a little bit. Female travel bloggers do travel a lot, sometimes even more than they should, leaving close to no time to note their discoveries and upload photographs. Yet when they do have time, we get to see and read some of the most peculiar, unusual, and wonderful experiences that come from truly brave, intelligent, and beautiful women that have seen a lot and are planning to see even more. If you’re lacking some inspiration, be it travel-related or otherwise, here are 8 awesome female bloggers that will add some colours to your day. And who knows, maybe you’ll want to become one of them?
