Wander Her Way Most Popular Blog Posts of 2020

2020 sure was a strange year for travel!

And by “strange” I of course mean pretty terrible. I witnessed firsthand the damage of completely shutting down the travel and tourism industry (which employs 10% of the world’s population…)

Luckily, my travel blog is not my sole source of income, so I was not affected financially by the downturn in the travel industry. It was a bummer to see my traffic and income, which was at an all-time high in January and February take a sudden plummet, though.

Even so, here are my most popular blog posts of 2020.

It’s interesting to compare these to my most popular blog posts of 2019 and see how my most popular content shifted this year with such different circumstances.
