This blog and my travel Instagram have been very casual and fun. However, I have started to see the traffic pick up, especially on Instagram. With that some unique opportunities and relationships have been made.
Lots of connecting with other “instafamilies” looking for home swaps, travel inspiration and ideas for traveling with kids. This has been fun for me because, many people feel that once you have kids all bets are off and you’re stuck going to Disney for 18 years (no offense Disney). A lot of the people I’ve encountered love “world-schooling” their kids or taking them for the adventure, which has been comforting. As I write this my kids are scheduled to visit 11 countries over the next two years, and I can’t believe we’ve been able to do some of the things we have.
Another thing I’ve learned a lot about is how much fun it is to network and help other people. I’ve met a few small flat hosts, BNBs and various hostel owners offering stays for photos and word of mouth. One day I hope to be able to take them up on some offers but I’m more than ecstatic about the connections and take off this has had for me.
I have also met a lot of awesome lady bloggers and entrepreneurs that are killing it. I interviewed with Modern Refined Jewelry based out of Denver, CO about what I am passionate about (see link below). I’ve also had the chance to collaborate with, and help some of my favorite Instagram folks plan miles redemptions and nerd out with them as they take off on once in a lifetime trips. It’s been a fun ride and I can’t wait to see what the next few weeks bring.
If you know me, you know I love all things Jewelry- especially earrings. When you check out Modern Refined below use my code travelbeeut25 for 25% off your purchase.
