3 Travel Bloggers with an Eye for the Amazing!

Aliwan Fiesta 2012 by Robi Jiz

When I am not traveling, I am dreaming of traveling which means that I am on the constant search for visual inspiration.

I thought I’d share 3 fellow bloggers that always deliver the visual goods. The photography of Sherry Ott, Alison Cornford-Matheson, and Robi Jiz makes me wanna grab my luggage and run screaming towards the nearest TSA security check.

Sherry Ott of Ottsworld:

Mongolian Gers by Sherry Ott

Sherry describes herself as:

… a corporate cube dweller turned nomadic traveler. … travel[ing] to off-the-beaten-path destinations to bring you travel experiences and photography from parts of the world seldom seen. But it’s not just about travel. It’s also about life experiences of a middle age wanderer.

A full-time travel photographer/blogger since 2006, Sherry is the person first ever to win the guest blogger contest at Go with Oh, a great vacation rental site. She is also the co-founder of Meet, Plan, Go, a web service dedicated to helping you get your career-break-travel plans out of your dreams and into real action.

Robi Jiz of Ka-byahe:

Sinulog by Robi Jiz

I have only been following Robi Jiz for a short time and his photos are in a word; breath-taking. He focuses mainly on documenting cultural festivals in his home, the Philippines.

It’s hard to believe that Robi is so young and still only a student studying art and music at the University of San Carlos in Cebu City. According to his blog he is just 18. I think that makes him a photo-blogger to keep an eye on and with over eight-thousand followers, I am definitely not alone in that sentiment!
