It’s that time again! If you’re new to this, the Gen Y Travel Blog carnival celebrates the best content from travel blogs in the past month. Here are the best entries from the month of September!
How does it work? Travel bloggers submit their favorite post they wrote in that month. I go through and weed out spam, irrelevant, or poorly-written entries and then present this list of the best. Here are the guidelines. Travel bloggers, submit your post for October here by the end of the month.
