Who Was the Best Travel Blogger of 2013?

The search is on for the UK’s best travel bloggers of the past year! We want to discover those laptop-wielding holiday whores who so vividly describe their travel experiences they put sand in their readers’ socks with a simple turn of phrase.

We’re looking for those worldly-wise folk who avoid palm-fringed clichés as though they were Somali pirates, who bring forth sunshine with their rattling fingertips, and who can put a smidgen of Santorini into a rainy afternoon in Manchester. Does any of this sound like you?

Meet the Perfect Travelling Companion!

We think that technology and travel bloggers go together like sunshine and margaritas. So to tempt the very best travelling keyboard warriors from their latest voyage, we have partnered with Nokia UK to giveaway the Lumia 1520 – a cutting-edge six-inch smartphone that doubles as the perfect mini-tablet for travel bloggers. We’re also giving our top prize winner £1,000 in travel vouchers so they can take their new companion away with them and document an overseas adventure.

The Nokia ‘phablet’ boasts a 1080p full HD display with superb outdoor readability. This creative canvas can be put to work with a great set of features and apps for telling stories on the go – the ideal companion for the travelling blogger!

  • Take incredible photos with the 20 megapixel, PureView camera
  • Update your blog with the WordPress for Nokia app
  • Create photoblog stories with the Nokia exclusive Storyteller app
  • Keep on top of work with the Office suite, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint
