As you probably know through personal experience many travelers plan their vacation based on what they can quickly find online. Most search engines including Google Search now specializes in personal data collection and aggregates the results based on your past searches and personal preferences then dishes up to you what the computer-generated algorithms think you want to see showing you the most typical results first and foremost. So unfortunately, most travelers miss the heart and soul of the places they visit and only get the well-traveled path designed towards past searches and experiences. Because of this cold impersonal vacation planning a vacationer may have the exact same vacation no matter what country of city they visit. Sad really and where’s the adventure in that?
You are a different type of Travel Junkie that choose a different path. Of course you like to travel and are a traveler that wants to get off the beaten path and find unique corners of the world? You enjoy meeting new people and engage with them. You are the one that talks to waiters or local business owners and generally engage them to learn what makes their lives unique and what interest them. You share.
When you find exceptional service or experiences do you want to pass this on and share with your friends so they can have this same exceptional experience and at the same time help the off the beaten path business grow a larger audience?

Then there’s another horizon-broadening aspect of travel, the Food and Drink. Perhaps you’ve eaten a meal that you will never forget at a cozy mom and pop spot that captures the local flavor perfectly. Or enjoyed a fine dining experience with imaginative, locally sourced cuisine and an ever-changing menu. Or even chased down a food truck with a loyal following that craves its street food. How about a relaxing wine tasting at the local winery with picnic tables overlooking the vineyard to enjoy cheese and a baguette afterward? Do you always sample the local beers when you travel, and which of the microbreweries are your favorites?
And don’t forget all the amazing activities that you want to share with your fellow travelers: for example, a bike ride route around your favorite city’s historic district. What are some of the smaller museums and attractions that don’t make every top ten article?
For many wanderers, the outdoor activities specific to a region are the main reason for going. Think Ziplines, Paddle Boarding, Skiing, Hiking, Swimming and so much more in awe-inspiring settings.
We could go on, and we know you have your own special travel experiences that engage your senses and make you want to share them with others.
We want to offer a win-win. You share your fabulous finds, the travel experience provider (business owner) gets the word spread about their offerings, and best of all you can earn money to help fund your travels!
There are several ways to monetize your travel, the most common would be to write posts. Not sales pages, but Travel Guide/Travel Tips/Travel Alerts about your travel experience and infuse the post with the experiences that you excited about. While you are traveling – experiencing – then engage the business owner and mention that you are a travel blogger and you would like to share the experience with your readers and followers. If your comfort zone and their openness permits then you can begin a dialog on you helping them spread the word about their business.
