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.

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.
