Thanks to HD pictures and these blogs, it’s almost like going along with the writer. I tend to read a lot of travel blogs so I can plan my next trip better. Among many travel blogs from UK, I also happen to like the blog section of Dream World Travel. Of course, it’s more of a travel agency so I can’t add them here but their content is very interesting. I even got inspired to book flights from London to Thailand after reading an interesting blog post. Of course, I had to search more about the city on other travel blogs I follow, like follow the universe had wonderful posts about Thailand as well.
