Condé Nast Traveller
Of course, with Condé Nast Traveller you’re guaranteed nothing short of fabulous. Glossy pages filled with the globe’s most travelled high-flyers sharing their favourite luxury breaks.

Luxury is one thing. Adrenaline-fuelled hyper-travel is quite another. Adventure Journal is the go-to for our less faint-hearted travellers. Packed with bucket list destinations and the bold and daring side of travel that would leave some of our most seasoned thrill seekers gasping. The photography is nothing short of awesome, and the odd paradise beach makes it into the Weekend Cabin Series.

Those who fancy themselves worldly and cultured - this is one for you. Destination tips, top cuisine and cultural insights in the form of personal musings make this site well worth a look. The customary dos and don’ts lists are interesting reads if you’re off to unfamiliar lands. What’s truly impressive is that the blog is by one extremely well-travelled writer – from Latin America to the Arctic – with her mantra ‘An American mademoiselle caught between continents and cultures.’

Bear with me here. Aside from the images of stunning mountain landscapes and photographs of polar bears, National Geographic is a great place to release those globetrotter impulses. The travel blog from NG is a quirky alternative if you need getaway ideas and is a good place to start if you’re lacking awe-inspiration. You can also come back to it for some really practical advice once you know where you’re headed, while amateur photographers can get some amazing ideas here too.
