Travel Bloggers of the Month: February “Small but Mighty” Edition

Travel Bloggers of the month February 2013

Written by Isabel Clift

February’s the shortest month of the year but has loads going on – it’s small but mighty, you might say. So while we’ve been covering the horse meat scandal, Valentine’s Day and the Oscars, what’s been going down in the world of travel blogging?

Blogger of the month

Nicole - Bitten by the Travel BugNicole from Bitten by the Travel Bug

Nicole began her blog when she couldn’t find any good info on what it’s like to work in US summer camps. She’s still going strong, living between London and Melbourne, working in radio and TV, studying for a degree and running a collection of blogs – while still finding time to travel the world. Nicole, we salute you!

Why we love her…
