Since Go Green Travel Green is somewhat of a Niche Green Travel Blog (although we think sustainable travel is something that should be pervasive and not a niche), I love the personal stories that get told in travel blogs. Just as relationships with family and friends change when you quit your job and spending several months traveling, so too do digital relationships.
We aren’t the best at keeping up with our followers when we are traveling. So, in an effort to make up for lost time, we read and follow hundreds of travel and environmental blogs.
Encourage our readers check out a variety of travel blogs and websites. There are tons of travel blogs out there with travel tips (this one included).

Go Green Travel Green Travel Blogs You Should Be Reading
Discovering countless new (to me) blogs has been a lot of fun. I hope readers have enjoyed checking out these websites as well. One of my favorite things while reading blogs is when the author reveals something about himself/herself that leaves you wanting to learn just a little bit more about them.
You get a true sense of the author’s voice. Here are some great travel blogs where the author’s voice really comes through:

21 Travel Podcasts and Travel TV Shows
Of the travel sites I’ve checked out, the biggest surprise has been in the world of podcasts and .tv sites. Honestly, I had listened to or watched very few travel podcasts and videos up until this week. And I had no idea what a wide range there were out there.
So, if you’re looking for a new type of media to watch while taking a break at your office desk or checking your email at a coffee shop in Amsterdam or listen to on your ipod while boarding a plane to Perth or enduring a chicken bus ride in Guatemala, I encourage you to visit the sites below:
My number one favorite Travel Podcast is hosted by Mike Siegel (maybe a little bias because we attend High School together) Travel Tales Podcast. You can follow Mike on his FaceBook Page and @TravelTalesPod…@FunnyMike
Indie Travel Podcast (Podcasts and Video)
Slow Travel Podcasts
A Year in Europe (no podcasts since 7/08)
