Gen Y Travel Blog Carnival: 9th Edition

I started the Gen Y Travel Blog Carnival as a way to share some of the best posts each month from 20something and 30something travel bloggers. For the last few months, other great travel bloggers hosted it, but I’m happy to bring it back this month!

How does it work? Travel bloggers submit their favorite blog post they have written in the past month. At the end of that month, the host goes through the submitted entries and selects their favorite entries. At the start of the next month, a post like this presents the best submissions.

Here are my selections for the best entries from April!

  • Matt Gibson features a sweet photo essay of a day of snowboarding with his brother on a Canadian ski hill.
  • Jasmine Wanders interviews a student in Colombia to learn first-hand about the education reform happening there.
  • Plus Ultra reflects on the Great Mosque of Córdoba, a Spanish architectural wonder, in addition to displaying many gorgeous photos.
  • 1,000 Places to Fight Before You Die reveals some of the most romantic things to do on a trip to the United Kingdom.
  • Adventures of the Directionally Challenged shares some of her favorite memories and experiences from her visit to Russia.
