3 Resources for Travel Inspiration
Today’s Guest Curator, Greta Iori, lives a life that most of us could only dream of. Greta, a 21 year old Tourism and Leisure student, travels around the world and documents her amazing journey through her travel blog Chronicles of an Italiopian. The word “Italiopian” is a combination of her Italian and Ethiopian heritage. For Part II of our Little Black Blog Series, Great shares her top 3 online travel resources that she turns to for inspiration and trip planning advice.

This has got to be the most famous of all my choices, constantly showing the world the most amazing destinations, changes and discoveries of the planet. I could roam this site all day and not want to leave! Amazing photography, great travel advice, adventure trips and environmental awareness!
Travelloger features beautiful places and how to get there with the help of pictures and maps. There is also some added humor with stories of travelers misadventures told through personal blogs. You can comment on blogs, and ask for directions from locals. It’s one of my favorite sites to get the inside scoop on whats happening in various cities around the world!
Editors Note: Greta’s blog has only been on the blogosphere for 6 months, yet she has managed to build a continuous and steady following . With her amazing photography showcasing places she’s visited from Monaco to Mexico and in between, we immediately fell in love with the site as well as Greta’s spontaneous personality. Recently, Greta embarked on a ‘Conquer Your Fears Campaign’ where she is working towards getting rid of her fears like Heights (she bungee jumped a few days ago!), Snakes and Horse Back riding.

“The essence of travel is not about how many places you visit,
but the meaning and impact of each destination upon your outlook on life.”
