Part of the Navigate Media Group
Navigate Media Group brings brands to life by reaching the hearts and minds of consumers through personal storytelling.
Social media is no longer just an option. Brands that continue to devote their resources solely to traditional media will be left behind. It is an excellent complement to a traditional media plan, connecting with consumers on a personal level.
We are a group of professional travel bloggers – writers, photographers, video producers, marketers and digital media experts – redesigning travel blogging by creating a powerful media platform to engage and inspire consumers to act.
All trips are written with honesty and disclosure.
