Travel blogs you'll love... top 2008 travel blog lists

While the media is publishing its 'places you must go in 2009' lists, travel bloggers have been busy posting their 'top travel blogs' lists. I place a lot more value on these lists, created by people who are widely traveled, well-read, and often well-published (many travel bloggers are also professional travel writers) than I do some of the more formal blog awards. So, if you're looking to increase your daily dose of vicarious travel, then check out these travel blogger's top travel blog lists:
* At Journeys Near and Far, Melody has posted her list of top 5 travel blogs you'll love, including my own (thank you, Melody).
* Melody was inspired by a top 15 list of blogs at Viscape that is also worth checking out, although I personally wouldn't include the LA Times travel deals blog.
* If you're still hungry for more, visit Hobo Traveller, where Andy has put together
a comprehensive list of the lists of best blogs.
* Also check out
The Best of Travel Blogs in 2008, which isn't really a list of great travel blogs, but rather the best content from, a wonderful supporter of travel blogs. Eric has posted interviews with travel bloggers and fantastic posts where travel bloggers have responded to issues as diverse as loneliness on the road.
And do take a look at my own travel blog roll - there are so many very inspiring travel blogs out there.
The pic? Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory, which topped my list of places you must go in 2009.

Thanks for the helpful links, Lara. This is an exciting time of year for travelers and travel writers. There is an optimism about the opportunities for the coming year. Let's hope it's a lot of travels and few "staycation."

Hi Melody - why thank you! Thanks for visiting.

Hi Matt - Happy New Year to you too!

Hi Gennaro - no problem. I agree. I think it's going to be a very exciting year for travel actually. I really think a transformation of a kind will take place and people will start to travel rather differently.
