At the risk of embracing a total cliché, “wanderlust” is the “strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world.”
Sure, it’s become a bit of a trope, but the idea still serves to explain the current era of travel culture. Never in the history of mankind has transportation been so efficient and so affordable. And in the Age of Information, it’s never been easier to learn and dream about distant places we want to experience. And since life doesn’t always allow us to see, taste, and hear all of these places in person, it’s awesome that social media lets us live vicariously through some of our favorite travel photographers.
There are many great travel bloggers making a living off of their beautiful travels, but there is also a wealth of “undiscovered” travelers roaming the globe and documenting the cool things they find. Here are a few we think you should be following:
