Blogging and Travelling
Travel blogs never get out of style. People from various walks of life continue to consult this category for both information and entertainment.
Basically, a blog is a category of a website which primarily focuses, however not limited, to written content. Your blog can be customized in an almost unlimited possibility; while your blog post may also contain various media aside from text, such as: pictures, videos, among others.
These features enable blogging to be one of the best vehicles to convey travel experiences. Interestingly, many lose themselves reading travel blogs as it allows them to imagine and feel the journey themselves.
Contrary to common perspective, travel blog posts referring to the same travel destination do not have the same content. People are created uniquely in their own way. Surely, they perceive the world differently from another.
