Abstract

Travel blogs can be considered as alternative literature. Travel blogs are the digitised version of travelogues or travel narratives. The blogs give impressive, cost effective and immediate impressions of travel. Earlier, the traveller prepares notes during the travel and writes it after reaching his native place. It involves revisualising the entire trip and jotting down the entire memories. The narration adds the real and the images he visualized. The narration will be a mix of myths and personal perspectives. The blogs are live reports of the travel. The rationale of the study understands the digital space and the awareness of “truth”.  In the post truth era frontiers are blurred between truth and lie, honesty and dishonesty, fiction and non fiction.
