Family travel: TRAVEL WITH BENDER Philosophy: "The ultimate guide for family travel." What we like: Travelling since their two children were only two and three years old, Erin and Josh Bender have made the impossible possible. What we love: An endless supply of family travel experiences and first-hand information on family destinations. The Benders have travelled to over 65 countries and their accounts are compelling. Global family travel has never felt so achievable.

They have been enjoying an envy-inducing nomadic lifestyle since 2015. What we love: These two are living the dream,but on a budget.

What we like: The slow, solo traveller, Trisha Velarmino wants to know what it feels like to eat, cook, speak and sleep in other cultures. What we love: Trisha is bold. She’s a die hard Barcelona FC fan, she consumes a considerable amount of burgers and tacos, and she never shies away from the grittier destinations (i.e. the not so Insta-friendly places). You're just as likely to find her in a Tel Aviv nightclub as you are a Parisian café. Our favourite blog: Did You Know?

What we like: Adam travels extensively. He’s also gay. While some might argue this is irrelevant, Adam’s blog highlights the importance of safety, comfort and politics, because they can affect the travels of a gay explorer. With topics that cover LGBTQ travel tips and gay-welcoming events, it’s both hipster cool and informative. What we love: Incredibly in-depth information with engaging topics. It's refreshingly frank and will put everyone on the right track for a great trip.
