Traveling can be exhilarating and exhausting, inspiring and intimidating all at once. But with every personal connection the world gets smaller and more navigable. All it takes is one compelling tale about Ouagandougou, and going there suddenly seems easy.
At Fathom, we have three missions. One: To help you indulge your love of travel whether you're on the road or staying home. Two: To narrow down the endless options (hotels, sites, destinations) to those that feel really special. And three: To seek out the best travel stories from our network of trusted sources as well as the world at large. With all of these in mind, we present the 24 bloggers and websites that most inspire us to pack our bags and see the world.
We asked them the same thing we ask everyone: What do you travel for? And we invite you to tell us what you travel for on Twitter (use #itravelforthe) and Facebook.
FATHOM'S 24 FAVORITE TRAVEL BLOGS AND WEBSITESAlex Robertson Textor
What We Love: We met when he wrote one of the first stories about us last summer for Gadling. (Thanks, Alex!) Ever since, whenever we hear about a trip he's taking, we have to consult an atlas. Total. Passport. Envy.
He travels for the opportunity to glimpse different ways of living.
What We Love: Clean, sophisticated, well-appointed highlights in travel, culture, and style. Beautiful, crisp photographs are paired with unique, interesting, and digestible bits of information that assume its readers to be smart and savvy.
Last seen scouting Chilean designers at Milan Design Week.
What We Love: A website that stays true to its mission to be a growing compendium of the world's wonders, curiosities, and esoterica. Joshua Foer's work is irreverent, bizarre, and utterly charming.
He travels for the little museums that are only open two days a week.
What We Love: Three friends — Courtney Adamo in London, Emilie Walmsley in Paris, and Esther van de Paal in Amsterdam — celebrate family fun around the world.
Esther travels for the love of the unexpected. Courtney travels for the sunshine.
