About Our Brand
This site launched in early 2013 as a way to share our travels with the world. With high engagement and readers constantly asking questions, the site transitioned into the ultimate resource for other travelers.
We help people in the entirety of the travel process, adhering to our motto – Dream. Dare. Diverge. – from inspiration to planning and finally living the adventure. This is done by embracing our story and providing first-hand information that comes from experience.
And we don’t just focus on the destinations themselves. You’ll find plenty of other content that parallels travel including gear guides, product reviews, hotel reviews and more. If it’s involved in our travel process, we’re sharing it with our readers.
Why do they listen to us? We have a connection with our readers that you can’t get from traditional media; we interact with our readers. We understand what a traveler wants because we are travelers ourselves.
As a result of this transition, this site has become one of the most authoritative and popular, multi-award-winning travel blogs in the world.
Our audience is split 52% female and 48% male. They are highly educated adventure seekers that love to travel and plan their trips based on our recommendations.
