We always wanted to make a rank-up of travel blogs geared to students. Sadly, we could not find blogs specific enough to fulfil this criterion.
So we decided to use our text mining software to filter out the ones that write about all things relevant to students. You may ask what could those be? Travel on a budget, learning while travelling, etc. How did we made this list? We checked tons of travel blogs and did text mining of their content: text terms, collocates, text themes, relevance to topics.
