Freelance Travel Writer, Blogger and Social Media Manager
There is a sassy, globetrotting, female elite out there who have made travel a central part of what they do for a living. They are constantly on the road, sourcing hot spots and the not so hot, and sharing it with their online travel communities. I asked some of these top female bloggers to share their travel tips across a range of specialist subjects including food, health, photography and relationships.
Best piece of travel advice anyone ever gave you: Make friends with, and trust, the locals. They always know the best places to go.
Kirsten’s top tips for mobile photography:
I am currently using ProCamera as my go-to app for actually taking photos on my iPhone meanwhile I edit in VSCOcam, Snapseed, Afterlight, KitCam, or Filterstorm. Instagram is my favourite social sharing app, the Hipstamatic ‘Foodie Snap Pack’ is my favourite way to capture dining experiences as I travel, Over is my favourite way to add text to photos and I love Vine for short videos.
One place to avoid: Delhi. It’s crowded, dirty, and unpleasant and easily my least favourite travel destination.
Best piece of travel advice anyone ever gave you: Always have some tissues with you…in a sealed plastic bag.
