There are approximately 98,000 sober blogs out there now (give or take). I think that’s awesome! Following other peoples’ journeys when you’re teetering around on your newly sober Bambi legs is super helpful. There are even a few other sober travel blogs out there, for which I want to provide you with the links. If I haven’t covered the topic, maybe one of these fine people have. Also, I’ve included a few sober travel agencies and tour groups which may have a blog associated with them. I have zero affiliation with anybody, I’m just a master of the Google-fu and am sharing my resources for those who might be lazier. You’re welcome. 😉
