In our experience people do not follow Facebook pages, Instagramers or websites, people follow people.

A good travel blogger writes about destinations, reviews hotels, restaurants and tours, takes amazing photos, and shines on social media. But what really makes them great is when they allow their unique personality to shine through.

The fact is that you look pretty much the same as everyone else on social media, unless you can “show and tell” how you are different. That’s why we use our personalities to differentiate ourselves from other travel bloggers out there. By being open, honest and “real,” we have the ability to build relationships that go beyond stats and numbers of followers.

To make that oh-so-important impression and invaluable connection, we showcase our personalities and reach our followers on a human level. Stock photos and staid content is not our style.

We allow our personality to show, rather than tell, through our constant videos, professional photography, drone videography, coverage before, during and after an experience, and by delivering exciting blog content immediately after the experience.

Both in our mid 40’s we have raised 2 children, ran successful businesses, taught English to foreign students, renovated houses and developed wisdom. So far we have visited 11 countries on 4 continents and have a pretty solid plan for our future travels.

We have camped in the dense scrub of the Australian outback, bungee jumped in New Zealand, hiked the Great Wall of China, Kissed a Tiger in Thailand, eaten endless amounts of bugs in various countries. Swam with crocodiles, plunged into icy rivers, snorkeled through underground Cenotes in Mexico, and ridden a bull in Texas. We have stayed in the most luxurious of Hotels, are experts in BnB’s, and love to experiences the “rawness” of a hostel in a foreign country.
