Two Monkeys Travel was created by husband and wife Kach and Jonathan Howe in 2013. Launched as a resource to store memories and experiences after the pair met while travelling, the blog has opened new opportunities, allowing Kach and Jonathan to establish their own travel group. The couple post about their exploits, offering advice to travellers in the form of posts, itineraries, and travel guides, pointing out the best things to do and see while exploring. Together, the pair have ventured to over 70 countries so far, and all 7 continents.
A new addition to our ranking is Hand Luggage Only, a blog that was conceived by Yaya and Lloyd in 2014 while studying at university. In a bid to connect with other like-minded travellers, the pair started to write about all the places they had travelled. Creating their own travel journal and destination guide, Hand Luggage Only provides breakdowns with eye-catching photography to bring them to life.

Travelling the world extensively for over ten years, visiting over 75 countries and hundreds of cities, Savi and her husband Vid decided to enter the world of travel blogging a few years ago. The aim of the blog is not just to tell readers about the places to go, but to encourage ‘looking at the world through rose-tinted glasses’. Working as a travel writer and photographer duo, the pair write about the best places to explore and what to wear while doing it. Some of their adventures have taken them to Slovenia, Seychelles, Japan, Europe, and Mauritius.
After leaving home around 10 years ago, Anna started travelling and exploring the world. With the aim to show the different perspectives of adventure, Anna can be found in a luxury hotel on one day and on another, be seen hanging from aerial silks in the woods. Having lived in LA, London, Amsterdam and Cape Town (to name a few), Anna is still exploring the world (and has even completed an MA degree along the way). As a seasoned traveller and expat, Anna uses her experience to show others how they can improve their life through adventure.
