I found a new happy place this summer: Port de Pollença, Mallorca.

From the moment we got there I fell in love with the rustic beaches framed by fragrant pine trees and waves that gently reached the shore, strolled along the beautiful promenade soaking up the sunrises and sunsets, enjoyed local delicacies so delicious that there was always room for more, and truly relaxed…

It made me realise how a little escapism from time to time can do a whole world of good, even if it is from the comfort of your sofa. Since I returned from my new ‘happy place’, I have started following more and more travel bloggers on Blog Lovin’  for an imaginary break to the world’s most exotic, exciting and vibrant destinations.

Here are some of my recommendations:


  1. The Travelista


The Travelista, a.k.a Jess, adventurously journeys through Cape Town, the Maldives, Tanzania, Malaysia, Dubai, Marrakech and even across hotspots a bit closer to home. Her blog is as savvy about style as it is travel, with beautiful photography, design and fashion featured throughout.


  1. The Style Traveller


Bonnie Rakhit has worked as the fashion editor at British Elle Magazine, as well as for the Sunday Times Style supplement. On her blog, The Style Traveller, Bonnie shares her expansive knowledge of fashion, advising on what to wear whilst on holiday, what accessories to pack, and the best places to shop for new garments.


  1. Hand Luggage Only


This is a fun-filled travel blog and door-to-door travel planner, with a side of food and home inspiration. Yaya and Lloyd are two life-loving adventurers who pack their posts with insider insights, beautiful photography and an infectious enthusiasm for all things travel.

  1. World of Wanderlust


Full-time travel blogger, Brooke, created World of Wanderlust to share her adventures abroad, in the kitchen and in life. The blog is now home to a collection of the world’s best experiences, destinations, tours, hotels, restaurants and lifestyle brands.


  1. Blog Lovin’ – The Edit


Not technically a travel blog, but I had to include it here because it’s a fantastic roundup of all the best bits. It usually features a mix of destination articles, travel guidance, packing advice and aspirational holiday adventures, but the content is updated regularly so it’s always worth a read.

What’s even better, my friends over at Positive Health Wellness have provided 8 reasons why travelling is good for your mind, body and soul. It’s worth a read.

Happy travels 🙂
