Luxury Travel Blogs You Must Read This April

The sun might be shining here in Edinburgh finally for Easter weekend, but in the world of luxury travel the sun always shines, thanks to some of the amazing blogs that we love to read each month.

Our mission is to curate the best content in the luxury travel sector and that includes highlighting luxury blog content too. If you are new to blogging, the following are essential viewing, so make sure you put them on you reading list.

Mrs O Around the World


Mrs O probably needs no introduction, but just in case, here goes. Mrs O, aka Ana Silva O’Riley is certainly the queen of luxury blogging in the UK! Ana’s blog is all about her experiences traveling and exploring the finer establishments the world has to offer. And Ana certainly has stayed at some of the worlds best establishments so her blog is a great read for getting the lowdown on where to stay when.

April is Ana’s birthday and she has a stackful of goodies on her blog that she is giving away, so now is a great time to start reading!

A Luxury Travel Blog


Not so much a blog as more of an institution in the luxury travel sector. Run by Dr Paul Johnson this website is a travel blog publishing machine. If a luxury topic hasn’t been written about on Paul’s website then it probably doesn’t exist.

The content on the website is a mix of interviews, guides, luxury innovation and technology reports. So ideal for anyone wanting to keep their finger on the pulse in this sector.

The Culturer
