With so many forms of media available these days, it can be difficult to cut through the noise, especially in the crowded blogosphere where just about every amateur has a Tumblr page or Pinterest account. These 10 vloggers have gone above and beyond – creating a large following through sweat, tears, and a heck of a lot of talent. Their videos take you all over the world, on a tour of many FlipKey vacation rentals, and right down to street level so you can experience the cultures, foods, and adventures right alongside them. So next year we highly recommend you follow this group on their blogs and YouTube pages for daily entertainment that really makes a lasting impression.
Booker Travels is an original web video series about global travel through the eyes of a teenager. Through my interests in history, music, food, and sports—and my particular passions for surfing and skateboarding—I explore and interact with local cultures around the world. My work on the show led me to be named “Traveler of the Year” by National Geographic Traveler in 2012. – Booker, Booker Travels, @bookertravels, YouTube

There is simply no better way to understand a place than being able to see what it, that’s why I decided to focus on video content. We strive to not only show places and things to do, but rather the essence of where we are. What it feels like to be there. And we compliment our destination content with useful tangible tips that help you out when you are planning your trip: what to pack, which apps to download, how to score the best price. The smartest traveler is the most prepared one. – Sonia, Sonia Travels @sonia_gil, YouTube
Moving forward you can expect to see a lot more emphasis on our YouTube channel. Making videos is the heart of everything we do and it’s the most fun we have.
