As you may have noticed, not all posts on this blog are related to travel. In fact, around half of the blog posts document the things I have learned and want to share about blogging itself. In this post, I want to review the most popular travel posts of 2020 on this blog, as it is quite interesting to see what people wanted to read last year.
Because last year was bad for the travel industry.
And wit “bad” I mean really terrible.
As travel has been restricted for the majority of the year, the majority of content that we could write about was something from the past, or something for the inspiration.
But from the most popular posts, I would think that some people actually got to see some new places. Many of the popular posts are really actionable and about a specific place. See for yourself below!
Hiking Mount Ida In Crete, Greece
The most popular travel blog post was about the hike to the highest mountain in Crete, Greece. This is quite a specific thing to look for, as the guide includes the description of the hike as well as the best parking space.
Visiting Samaria Gorge With A Rental Car
My second most popular blog post this year was a destination in Crete as well. In this guide, you can find out how you can hike Samaria gorge by going there in your own car, and not paying quite a high amount to the tour operators.
65 Travel Blog Ideas
Even though this year has been slow for travel blogging, people are still searching for ideas on what to write on a travel blog. Blogging is a great hobby to have as a creative outlet for writing. And as a bonus, it may even earn you some money for the next trip.

Kasprowy Wierch Hike In Zakopane, Poland
No surprise here, another popular post about a hike. This one is in Poland and leads to green mountains and blue lakes. Kasprowy Wierch is great also due to it being accessible by a cable car.
