My Favourite Blog Posts of 2017

After another epic year where I published 75 blog posts, which ones made my favourite travel blog posts of 2017?

I can’t say this enough, but what an incredible year 2017 was! Hopefully some of these travel blog posts will show you why!

If you haven’t seen it yet, I’ve already detailed some of my favourite moments of the year in The Best Travel Instagrams of 2017 (make sure you check it out!) In this post though, I wanted to go through some of my favourite blog posts of 2017.

Last year I wrote 75 different blog posts. Usually I write at least 1,000 words per blog post, so I reckon that’s more than 75,000 words by my calculations – that’s more than I ever wrote for my book Your Round the World Trip Planner, that’s for sure!

With blog posts on Barbados, Canada, Croatia, Iceland, Jordan, Mauritius, Turkey, and a fair few other countries in-between, it’s fair to say I covered a good amount of the world in 2017 (don’t worry, I plant trees to off-set my carbon footprint!)

So, which ones made my favourite blog posts of 2017 though? Take a look at these for some inspiration on where to travel to this year and let me know which one is your favourite!
