Women are kicking ass in the travel blogging world. There’s no doubt about this. In honour of International Women’s Day we are presenting you with – 2017’s Most Amazing 17 Female Travel Bloggers.

The women listed below are all fantastic influencers and are great to connect with on those all important social medias- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc. To make it on this most illustrious list the women are generally nice lady travellers with a decent side serve of sass. Just the way I like it! You’ll find that the lady bloggers listed are honest and transparent in their writings and actions. Nearly all of the female travellers we’ve meet along the road in the past 12 months.

There is no way to buy yourself into this list. This isn’t a list in which we have asked people to nominate themselves. No these are ladies that are amazing on their own merits! This isn’t a “sexiest” list. We’re not here to objectify these women based on theri age or perceived sexuality.

Each of the women listed below is an incredibly sexy. sassy, kick ass travel blogger in her own right.

The first time I met Sheila was at a VIP event in Manila. From the first moment I met her and we laughed over her being a Sheila in Australia I knew that this was a wonderful woman I needed in my life. Sheila is a fantastic photographer with her little lego lady. More fascinating and fun though is the podcast, This One Time, that she allows her husband Evo to be apart of. Ok maybe I made that bit up. These two are a dynamic duo.

And we’re done. So there it is for another year. A list of wonderful woman that you really should be checking out right about now. I do just want to say that this list in no way is a comprehensive list. It’s merely a peek into the travel community and a small recognition of some wonderful women doing some wonderful work. There are so many more ladies out there who are rocking this globe. However I did have to stop at 17 as well it’s a 2017 list. Symmetry my friends.Symmetry.

This is a list of ladies that I love. They are strong, powerful, independent travellers who are out there rocking the world. There really is no way to have your name listed here. It’s based on a secret and complex algorithm that is more secure than the next Instagram change. So do yourself a favour, save yourself the heartbreak and don’t ask to be included.
