If you are a (travel) blogger or a brand in the travel industry, a tourism board or anyone else who works in travel, let me welcome you to my blog The Social Travel Experiment.
First of all, I would like to tell you that I do enjoy working with others. I am writing The SOCIAL Travel Experiment, after all.
On this work with me page, I will tell you how we might work together, by first introducing my blog, myself and my audience and then ways in which we might work together to the most significant benefit for my audience, you and me (in that order).
After living in Japan for over three years, I felt restless and knew I needed a new adventure. That was when I decided to make a trip around the world for one year. It seemed like a good idea to start a travel blog before beginning on this big journey, because who has time to travel full time and learn how to blog at the same time.
So, in May 2017 I set up my blog and used the year until the start of my RTW trip to write about my love for Japan, and my passion for social travel. There was a lot to learn, but eventually, my blog started to grow.
I pitched for my first brand collaboration after only a couple of months, and I was successful in securing a food tour participation. After the tour, I wrote a detailed review of the fantastic experience. The tour operators were happy, I was pleased, and my audience, looking for the best food tour in Taipei where also delighted.
Since July 2018 I am on the road, traveling around the world. In the beginning, it was hard to focus on my blog while on the road, but I have found the right balance. I collaborated with another food tour and a car rental company in August 2018.

Hello, fellow (travel) blogger. I have recently decided to open up my blog to guest posts. There are two topics I am especially interested in:
1. Your trip around the world (how much you spent, your biggest challenge, how you changed, etc.)
2. Your experience staying with locals (through Couchsurfing, Workaway or any other network)
If you are interested in writing for me, please find more information about what I expect and what you will get in return on my Guest Post Guidelines.
