This idea would definitely be suited for those who are kids at heart and wouldn’t mind talking endlessly about silly and or wacky teen travel topics.

2. Female Travelers – a HUGE market in and of itself, female travelers. When women travel by themselves it’s a production, everything from the clothing we wear to the shoes we plan to bring is given a great deal of thought.

Some hate planes, others loathe a long train ride and yet others would rather walk than hop on board a bus. Yet, they still have to commute somehow for their journey. A blog dedicated to travel phobes would be quite a resource, not too mention a fun property for those who like to deliver “outside the box” content.
