How to Travel Europe
Traveling opens up a lot of new opportunities and experiences, but actually planning and going on a trip to an unfamiliar place can be overwhelming. Fortunately, experienced travelers from all walks of life are sharing their stories online to inspire and help others, and here, in no particular order, are some travel and lifestyle blogs that feature a lot of useful advice.
First up, at #1, we have Dobbernationloves. Launched in 2006, it is an award-winning lifestyle publication by Toronto-based writer and photographer Andrew John Virtue Dobson. Originally created with a goal to inspire solo travelers to eat around the globe, it's committed to sharing travel itineraries and tours of the world's most luxurious hotels and resorts.

The team writes helpful articles that offer various tech-related tips, such as how to create fun travel videos on an iPhone, how to run one's own blog, or even an entire guide on how to start vlogging.

For every place Arestis and Chaneac visit, they like to make local friends to experience the culture and gay scene from their perspective. This inspired the website's Gay Stories section, which features interviews with members of the LGBTQ community from all around the world, safety tips for travelers, and more.
