I love seeing the rise to fame of travel bloggers and vloggers. These guys and gals start with nothing more than a passion for traveling outside their comfort zone, then after gaining a following have tons of hotels, airlines, resorts, etc., lining up to give them free stuff in exchange for promotion to followers. Man, what a life.
This vid goes over some of the good times and bad that Brooke Saward, founder of Worldofwanderlust.com has experienced during her largely “free” travel adventures over the last year:
The life of a travel hungry mover-and-shaker. Wow!
Obviously this girl has had some ups and downs. She started out funding her own travels, worked her buns off documenting her experiences and posting them to a blog, and now travels — seemingly — in the lap of luxury.
Not a bad way to get around and see parts of the world that many will never experience…
(Such a shame such a pretty lady feels the need to cut alcohol and men out of her life at such an early age, am I right?)
What do you think: Is creating a travel blog to fund your travels easier said than done in this day and age?
Anyone out there considering doing this sort of thing?
Happy and safe travels!
