Adventures are awesome. There is no thrilling sight than watching the Black Hills loom over the horizon as you are speeding down a road. Few sights can capture the beauty of the Blue Ridge Parkway as you are riding down the motorway. But not all of us have the money or the time to take a trip. Some of us are looking to go on a trip and are doing research on the perfect trip. For both a sense of wish fulfilment and research purpose, travel blogs are the perfect source of information. Sadly, not all blogs are of equal calibre, which is why it's important to refer to the best adventurers and the most experienced travellers. Here’s a list of the top 10 adventure bloggers.
