About

Gadling is the world’s top travel blog, written and edited by passionate travelers and writers. Covering fun, interesting, and relevant travel, Gadling is the premiere source for everything from general travel news to highly specific travel tips, from budget travel to adventure travel – and for everything in between.

Gadling was launched in 2004 and was later acquired by AOL as part of a larger acquisition of parent Weblogs Inc. Over the years, it has grown to be a trusted source for everything from general travel news to highly specific travel tips, from budget travel to adventure travel — and for everything in between. As AOL has decided to focus on MapQuest as the center of its travel strategy, it wanted to find a good home for Gadling.

In June 2014, it sold Gadling to Skift, the leading news site for the travel industry.

Skift gave Gadling a small refresh in July 2014, and will be updating the site and adding new voices throughout the year. As long time readers of — as well as contributors to — the site, we’re excited about experiencing travel to the fullest, and sharing it with you along the way.
