How To Become A Travel Influencer And Get Paid To Travel

Travel Influencer

After all those Facebook ads of young travelers living amazing lives traveling the world and seamlessly making money while doing it, you have decided that you also want to have what they have. If it were only that easy, those travelers you see also happen to be incredibly hard-working, marketing masterminds and experts of their trade. Although their lives look lavish and carefree this is hardly the reality, but they do get to travel the world, receive tons of perks, and do in fact get paid to do it. I know this because, after many years of hard work, it’s paid off and I often go on paid trips around the world. It didn’t come easy though, but with dedication and a lot of passion (patience as well), it is a realistic goal that many can achieve.

Remote Destinations

When it comes to travel I can without a doubt say, that I travel a lot. Meeting new people is a common occurrence for me and I am often asked: “where is your favorite destination”. This is a hard question as I have found something I like in every country I have been to. An easier answer is my favourite places to travel are the hardest ones to get to, the most remote corners of the planet. Here life is tough, often nomadic or tribal, based on survival rather than living. The environments are extreme, it can be very technical and travel here can require a lot of planning but it is by far the most rewarding kind of travel I have ever encountered. So, if you’re ready, lace your boots up and pack your bag and let’s go to the most remote corners of the planet! Read More

Understanding Dark Tourism and What It Is?

This post is to take a look into the darker side of travel and understand why people not only enjoy it, but dedicate the entirety of their travels to it. Read More

The Truth Behind Travel Blogging – Why You Should Have a Travel Blog

Travel Blogging
Every traveler these days seems to have a travel blog. In a world that is connected in all ways imaginable we are constantly bombarded with happy couples in Paris, solo travelers backpacking in South East Asia, and Instagram stars on exotic adventures. With so many travel bloggers, and Instagram/Facebook celebrities it seems as if starting your own travel blog and traveling the world for free couldn’t be easier, this however is not the reality behind travel blogging. As one of the few online who can say I have some sort of success in the industry I can assure you that what travel blogging was created for and what it has become is a dark reality, but even though travel blogging has lost its ways there is still many out there who do it legitimately!
