Adventure Travel Blog
Mansi, when did you start your blog?
Walk me through how or why you started?
Since pursuing my digital marketing career, it has been a lot easier to start a blog or website and maintain it further. Though there's one question floating around in my head, how do I accumulate all my travel experiences, adventure activities to share with my friends and global audiences to inspire them to step outside of their comfort zone? So first, I started sharing short-form content on my Instagram channel. I switched my personal account to a business account. After a few years, I finally decided to take the leap and use my 10+ years of digital marketing experience available to build a professional blog for a wider audience and help travel brands. That is how I launched my blog. It's a comprehensive blog sharing all significant destinations and attainable activities-based adventures.
Do you feature a specific type of travel or area?
Adventure travel mainly in North America and Europe.
What is your favorite part about being a blogger?
Trying to inspire people to do the things that inspire them through travel and sharing educational and fun, fresh content.
What is your favorite or dream destination?
My favorite destinations are Costa Rica and Sydney, Australia.
What is your favorite travel tip?
Now more than ever, Travel insurance is everything!
What other suggestions do you have for travelers?
Get more diverse experiences from food to culture to adventure and whatever it takes in between, not just collecting stamps on the passport.
What suggestions do you have for bloggers, or what has been the biggest obstacle you have overcome with your blog?
The biggest obstacle is not being a one-dimensional blogger. Keep writing/promoting content while finding other ways to monetize your travel brand, update and maintain a blog regularly, focus on building community, global reach, and ways to collaborate beyond just an affiliate platform as a publisher.
How can our readers follow your travels?
They can connect with me on Instagram and/or on my blog, podcast. I have been documenting everything on my blog and social channels. I can also plan their trips directly or discuss any travel hacking or future travel to heighten their experiences.
Anything else you would like to share?
Sure! Don't travel just for the heck of it. Learn from your travel experiences, find happiness and connect with locals where you go.
