Lifelong traveler here! I’ve lived on 4 different continents and I am about to call my 6th country home. Early on, I knew I was more than just a tourist. I wanted to be a part of the industry, but wasn’t really sure where I fit in. Recently, I’ve combined my two main passions by working as a content writer for the travel industry.
The travel industry is a great place to be. It’s exciting as a writer because it reaches every corner of the world and has ties to many industries. Not only in tourism sub-markets like airlines, hotels and museums, but also for industries like electronics, beauty products, insurance, clothing and more, travel has a sales impact.
Travel Writing – What I’ve Been Up To
As a travel writer I have experience with businesses from around the world, large and small. Luxury, mid-range or budget, every traveler needs to find information to get where they’re going, and help them make the most of their time there.
Luxury Travel Property Descriptions
I was commissioned to create website content such as Company Story and property descriptions for a luxury real estate development in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. These five star luxury residences and vacation homes deserve five-star descriptions that dazzle, impress, and entice.
Neighborhood Guides for Hotels
I love helping travelers discover local activities, food, and experiences near their hotel. As a freelance writer for Arrivedo, I work directly with hotels to create neighborhood guides that attract new guests and improve the experience for current guests.
Blog Posts & Online Articles
Sometimes I do ghostwriting, which means I don’t always get to publish work under my own name. However, working as a ghostwriter (or “ghostblogger”, as the case may be) for The World’s Most Popular Cruise Line® has certainly been a fun project!
I love writing travel articles like these about exotic destinations including what to expect, best foods to try and souvenirs to look out for – because who doesn’t love looking forward to a vacation? I enjoy getting people excited about their travels and describing all the fun adventures they can get into while on their trip. I learn something along the way and get ideas for my own travels. Win-win!
On occasion, I’m available to contribute a guest post. In the past, I’ve collaborated with other travel sites and communities to share my experience as a digital nomad and long-term traveler. Areas of expertise include financial planning for travel, solo travel, teaching English abroad, moving abroad, running a business while on the move, making the transition to self-employed or remote work, packing and travel tips, and travel inspiration!
This post for SheHitRefresh.com (a travel community of women over 30 who want to break free and live a life of travel) covers volunteering abroad using Workaway.
