The Story of this Blog
Launched in 2015, Traverse is a Germany-based travel blog focused on empowering millennial travelers to maximize their food and travel adventures through actually useful travel planning resources. Traverse is not one of those fluffy content corners of the internet — don’t expect to find any posts about the “15 photos to inspire a trip to _____” kind of crap.
I write detailed, comprehensive travel guides so that my readers can have a one-stop shop for their trip planning needs. This blog highlights stories of travel with a strong emphasis on city breaks, sustainable consumption, socially responsible activities, and delicious culinary adventures for career-focused travelers with limited time-off.
Writing a mixture of practical how-to’s, honest + intentional guides, and expectation-setting advice from over 15 years of international travel experience, Traverse Blog is an informative and kind brand of travel empowerment. Traverse Blog focuses on visual storytelling through captivating photos and videos to pair with high quality written content.
