While international travel isn’t in the cards for us in 2020, it doesn’t stop us from dreaming about greener pastures. You can’t blame us for being optimistic, we do run a travel blog after all. And if these past months had taught us anything its that to never take what we have for granted.
It has also taught us compassion for our fellow travel bloggers (hang in there!). This week we’d like to introduce you to travel bloggers Victoria and Steve from Bridges and Balloons. Fans of road trips, cakes, cabins, and bookshops their website and accompanying Instagram page offer travel recommendations and unique itineraries, filled with beautifully designed places to stay and ways to experience life like a local.
Rather than treating your vacation as a long to-do list filled with “must-sees”, Bridges and Balloons offers a way of travel that stresses the importance of soaking up the atmosphere and experiencing local life. “We favor independents over chains, and while we’re vegetarian, we tend to eat in restaurants that are known to be good for all food rather than just veggie stuff,” writes Victoria. “We love places that have a story behind them, and we prioritise the experience over the price, featuring both budget and luxury styles.”
Having traveled around the world (sometimes regularly, sometimes full-time) for the past two decades, Victoria is here top show you the ropes. “I’m that friend you always ask for travel tips,” she writes, “who you can rely on to have done all the research and sought out the places that make a trip unique. I’m an 100% travel geek – and a certified cake and book fiend.”
