(Note: This blog was updated in January 2019)

When planning to go around the world, make sure you read at least some of the top 21 blogs for planning your RTW (Round the World) trip.

Yellowstone 2015 037 I subscribed to most of these blogs for almost a year before actually planning my trip. Then, in April 2014, we jetted off for a month’s trip round the world. These bloggers really helped me think through logistics, packing, and traveling with children. I hope they can help you as well.

After reading many blogs about RTW travel, I felt I had enough of a background to start planning my trip. Granted, you don’t have to read all of these blogs, but the more you read, the more you’ll be prepared.
