For McCool Travel’s 122nd travel profile, I am happy to introduce you to Mike Ragsdale, the founder of 30A. Have you heard of 30A? 30A celebrates small-town ...
I am by no means a luxury travel expert. Sure, I have dabbled a bit with luxury travel but I am strictly an amateur. Many amazing luxury travel bloggers inspire me and here are a few. I have included links to their websites and social media channels so that you can follow them.
Luxury Travel Bloggers to Follow
Boston based Tiffany Dowd (Luxe Tiffany) advises luxury travel and luxury brands on social media marketing and online strategy through Luxe Social Media. She regularly appear on top Luxury Travel lists, including, now, mine—perhaps her biggest honor. Also, today is Tiffany’s birthday (Happy Birthday, Tiffany!).
A Luxury Travel Blog
UK based Paul Johnson was one of my first travel interview subjects, 5 years ago. His website, A Luxury Travel Blog, focuses on the finer aspects of travel and serves as a gateway for the discerning traveller, providing information on the most luxurious hotels and resorts, the finest restaurants and news from within the luxury travel industry.
We Blog the World
California based Renee Blodgett is the only person on this list I have actually met (so, Hello, Renee!). Her website, We Blog the World, focuses on Transformative Travel—at the juncture of where luxury travel, adventure, and wellness meet—and covers unique experiences, events, food/wine, and transformative experiences across luxury, family, romantic getaways, and other categories. Renee is prolific on all social media platforms, her favorite being Instagram, and she has over a million Twitter followers (wow!).
Spa Travel Gal
South Carolina based Ava Roxanne Stritt is the go-to source for anything related to spa travel. Spa treatments are an essential component of luxury travel, right? However, on her website, Spa Travel Gal, Ava says Spa, Travel and Skincare Experiences are not a Luxury, but Essential to a Healthy Body and Mind! — but I will still include her on my list.
Always 5 Star
California based Pam Rossi exploded onto the Twitter scene this year with her amazing Always 5 Star lifestyle photos and messages with a signature theme of champagne and world luxury resorts. I love her focus of experiencing travel on a five star level without having to pay a five star price. Pam probably has the smallest network of anyone on this list but has become one of my favorite online personalities.
Luxury Travel Mom
NYC based Kim-Marie Evans founded Luxury Travel Mom when she realized moms really only trust other moms, whether it’s the best car to buy or hotel to visit. Only a mom traveling with children can really attest to a hotel’s child friendliness. Along with Ana Silva O’Reilly (Mrs. O Around the World), she hosts the fun and informative #LuxTravelChat travel chat on Twitter. Kim-Marie is quirky and honest, as evidenced by her disclaimer: You can buy her champagne, but you can’t buy her opinion.
Do you have other suggestions for my luxury travel bloggers to follow list? How about other guys? Are there any other male luxury travel bloggers to follow?
