Posted on 26/05/2015 by Michael Arthur

Guidebooks are essential for travel but an even better way of getting top travel advice is to enter into the world of travel blogs. The travelling blogosphere allows us to get real, honest encounters from real people, just like us. Yes they’re just like us lot here at Spaceship Rentals. Except they’ve probably been to more places, seen more things, and are probably 100% more awesome that we are. ;)

Here are the awesome top 10 UK travel blogger you should be following:
