    I tried this and found it difficult so changed to running a personal brand and me and my girlfriend go travelling for 3/4 nights of every month and get the most above of photos we can get, which will then be posted through the month mixed up with other photos from other trips. We wear different clothes etc

    Totally fine, and you don't really have to even write about your own experiences of travel either. You can simply compile/comment on other peoples, or just re-write other peoples experiences and use free/royalty free images for support

    Yes, you can!
    But you have to write it with the expressions like you were enjoyed it.

    Yes you can..but be sure to do more research on the topics before writing. It is all about conveying interesting and useful information in the best quality to people for easy understanding. So do your homework. All the best!!!

    A few years back, one BuzzFeed writer wrote about Malta without actually going there. She got regarded as a "hero" of that country. Think about that.

    I think this would be hard to do. There are so many travel blogs and you need to be authentic or be lost in the crowd.

    I sometimes read them but I only like the ones who are really doing it and giving me real insight and experience.

    you can find related information and compile it into a better article. I've seen many sites doing this.

    It's fine to write about somewhere you haven't been, but I wouldn't pretend you've visited a place if you haven't. Just share information -- or better yet, share a roundup of other people's experiences. "Top Ten Tips for Paris" and link to 10 travel blog posts by other people. If you've done a good job, they'll link back and share it.
