This blog is about my personal travel experiences and the things I´ve learned during my 10+ year journey. I have traveled to over 100 countries on 6 continents and plan to continue exploring the world for the foreseeable future. During my travels I seek to visit traditional tourist sites, try popular activities or experiences, learn about local culture by interacting with the people, and see the remote places and destinations left off regular tourists´ itineraries.
As a photography enthusiast for over 20 years, I have developed a keen eye for capturing moments and I now often (but not always) travel with my camera gear with this purpose in mind.
I have paid for the majority of my travel myself and try to teach my readers how they can do the same. I did not become a travel blogger to make money and have spent the last 5 years developing this site with my own money. This approach has allowed me to share my real and unbiased experiences and seek out destinations and attractions for travelers on a budget.
Although I have seen a lot of the world and tried and experienced thousands of activities and products on my own, I obviously have not had a chance to see or try everything. If you think I would enjoy your destination, activity, or product, I am certainly open to trying it and sharing the experience with my readers.
I am willing to work with companies of all types and sizes provided it will be of interest to my readership. Partnership/sponsorship possibilities may include:
If you have additional ideas or proposals, please let me know as I am open to other collaborations or partnerships that may work for your brand.
Some of the services I am willing to offer include:
In addition, I have a background in business (BComm) and Law (LLM) and have been involved in several entrepreneurial ventures. Thanks to my global experiences I have gained a great deal of insight into international products, brands, marketing, and learned a great deal about what makes a product or experience successful. I have also developed a strong network of professionals in various industries and countries who are great resources for brand or product development. Beyond the online media and coverage I can offer through this blog, I am also willing to consult on the development of businesses and business plans in a variety of ways.
My readers come first and my objectivity will not be skewed by sponsorship or partnerships. This blog was built on travel I paid for myself and I am not willing to jeopardize my integrity for financial gain. All reviews and travel experiences on Baldpacker.com will be 100% truthful and include a notation in the footer explaining the nature of the sponsorship. I will not write poorly about a sponsor’s competitors, unless I genuinely dislike them, and will not post any content written by third parties. If you are an ethical business made of the same moral fabric as I am, I would love to hear from you!
If you have a proposal, please use my social media links, including the e-mail link on my home page or in the footer below, to reach out to me. Together, we can build success!
