24 Best Travel Blogs and Websites: First Edition

by Team Fathom

This is what it looks like when we plan a trip at Fathom HQ.

Traveling can be exhilarating and exhausting, inspiring and intimidating all at once. But with every personal connection the world gets smaller and more navigable. All it takes is one compelling tale about Ouagandougou, and going there suddenly seems easy.

At Fathom, we have three missions. One: To help you indulge your love of travel whether you're on the road or staying home. Two: To narrow down the endless options (hotels, sites, destinations) to those that feel really special. And three: To seek out the best travel stories from our network of trusted sources as well as the world at large. With all of these in mind, we present the 24 bloggers and websites that most inspire us to pack our bags and see the world.

We asked them the same thing we ask everyone: What do you travel for? And we invite you to tell us what you travel for on Twitter (use #itravelforthe) and Facebook.

You'll be seeing more of these amazing writers and travelers on Fathom. We're thrilled to get to know them better. Stay tuned.

We make every effort to ensure the information in our articles is accurate at the time of publication. But the world moves fast, and even we double-check important details before hitting the road.
