There are literally thousands of travel blogs to be found on the internet. And there are lists of what are considered to be the top 100 travel blogs in the world, but there has never been a list that specifies the top 100 Canadian travel blogs.
Until this morning. And the most exciting part? We're on the list!
Canada's #2 online travel booking site is FlightNetwork.com and they took it upon themselves to come up with a list of the top 100 Canadian travel blogs. Their editor Matt Gibson asked thousands of travel bloggers around the world for their favorite Canadian travel blogs, and somewhere along the line Travel with Kevin and Ruth was nominated.

Top 100 Canadian Travel Blogs
From this morning's press release...
On Monday Canadian online travel agency FlightNetwork.com released the Top 100 Canadian Travel Blogs, a list compiled through crowdsourcing on social media sites. The list can be found at FlightNetwork.com.
Bloggers were nominated for inclusion in the list by the travel blogging community. Nominees were contacted via email by FlightNetwork.com and asked to outline the details of their blog.
“There are several reasons why we needed to build this list. First, and most importantly, many Canadians don’t realize how many Canadian travel bloggers are out there, exploring the world, and offering a Canadian perspective on their experiences,” said Matt Gibson, the list’s curator and editor of FlightNetwork.com’s own travel blog Let’s Roll.
Using the list, travellers will be able to access recommended blog posts, link to the blogger’s social media pages and, most importantly, search for blogs that write about their upcoming destination. With a reputation for global backpacking, travel-blogging Canadians appear to have reached every corner of the earth.
“Considering Canada’s relatively small population, Canadians are greatly overrepresented in the travel blogging community. Something about us seems to drive us to explore.” said Gibson, who is also a founding member of the Professional Travel Bloggers Association.
The list is also an opportunity for bloggers to network amongst themselves and others in the travel industry, such as public relations professionals and marketers.
There are some really interesting people writing the blogs included in this list (besides us...lol) so I hope you go check it out and maybe find some other inspirational travel reading from a Canadian perspective.
