Travel blogger: ‘Why I’m so over travelling’

With the current state of the world, it might seem like there’s never been a better time to be on the go. But for travel blogger Jenny Berkowitz, travelling has become increasingly frustrating and pointless. In this article, she shares her reasons for why she’s decided to stop travelling, and offers advice for anyone who might be thinking about embarking on a similar journey.

Why did the travel blogger decide to stop travelling?

  • It all started when she broke her leg – and that was the beginning of the end for her travel dreams.
  • She found herself too incapacitated to continue travelling, and instead turned to blogging as a way to share her experiences with other travellers.
  • But even that wasn’t enough; she slowly became disillusioned with the travel blogging community, feeling like they only recognised her as a ‘quirky’ girl who took pictures of herself in weird places.
  • In the end, it was all too much – she quit travelling altogether, and now spends her time blogging about other things.

What was the best and worst part about being a travel blogger?

The best part about being a travel blogger is getting to meet so many amazing people from all over the world! The worst part is probably having to pack and leave home so often.

What advice would you give to someone who is thinking of starting a travel blog?

The best advice I can give someone considering starting a travel blog is to start small. There is no need to start blogging about every destination you visit – start with one or two and see how things go. Also, make sure you are constantly updating your blog with new photos and stories, as this will help attract readers. Lastly, be prepared to work hard – not everyone will be interested in reading about your travels, so it takes a lot of dedication and effort to make a successful travel blog.

The blogger’s advice for aspiring travel bloggers out there.

If you’re like me, you’ve been bitten by the travel bug and can’t resist booking a new destination every few months. But before you go packing your bags, there are a few things you need to know if you want to be a successful travel blogger.

First and foremost, your blog needs to be well-written and engaging. If people aren’t interested in what you have to say, they won’t stick around for long. While your photos are important too, don’t forget to put your content first.

Make sure you have a strong social media presence. Not only will this help promote your blog (and earn you some extra money), but it will also give you an opportunity to connect with potential tour customers.

Be patient and persistent. It will take time (and a lot of hard work) to become a successful travel blogger, but the rewards are worth it.


I’ve been travelling for so long now and I’m starting to really miss my home. Yes, it’s a bit of a cliché but the truth is that there are just some places that feel more like home than anywhere else. When you’re constantly moving around, it’s hard to find those special moments where everything clicks – where you suddenly realize that this is actually where you want to be. So while I still enjoy travelling, I’m slowly starting to become over-exposed and over-stressed which has led me to making the difficult decision to stop travelling full time.

    Work hard for what you want because it won\’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.
