free WordPress Theme

Being a traveller myself, I found it hard to pick a perfectly matching WordPress theme, offering an ambience to my blog, which I was looking for. During my research, I looked at hundreds of options, and finally noted down dozens of them.

Out of those dozens, I’m sharing the best travel WordPress themes right here. This compilation is hand-picked, and I’m sure you’ll find it hard to pick a single one out of these.

There are few prime factors I was looking at the time of selecting the perfect theme. Like, it should handle the images perfectly, it should have fewer distractions in the UI, and it should load fast (considering I’ll be uploading tons of videos and images).

Most importantly, it should deliver an ambience matching the travel niche, which is hard to define in words.

I hope you got the point here, so let’s begin with the compilation now.
