Indie Traveller is aimed at travellers looking for exciting experiences around the world on a regular person’s budget.
While my blog began (as many do) with a focus on backpacking, this has gradually widened to include ecotourism, independent travel, adventure travel, and cultural travel mainly for the 20 to 40 demographic.
I’m interested in working with brands and destination marketers looking for high-quality coverage. I believe in true two-way partnerships, designed to give you valuable authentic exposure while giving my readers relevant and exciting content.
I have recently (March 2017) begun including press trips, starting with a one-week custom tailored trip to the Azores in collaboration with the Azores Tourism Board. This trip led to four in-depth articles, e-mail and social media exposure to over 15,000 followers, and permanent inclusion of the Azores in my library of destination guides.

As a long-time traveller and travel expert, I’m always happy to respond to media requests or participate in a content piece in exchange for a backlink. I’ve been quoted previously on Huffington Post, Bloomberg News, and many others. Feel free to get in touch using the form below.
I’m available for freelance writing assignments for your brand, magazine, or website. I have a prior background in journalism and am comfortable with a range of writing styles.
On Indie Traveller I mostly produce travel guide-style pieces, but I also have many examples of more narrative work. Take a look at my posts about South Africa’s Wild Coast, the island of Pico on the Azores, this trekking trip in Colombia, to name a few.
