What is Traverse?

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. 

Who Reads Traverse?

My readers are a lot like me — English speaking millennials between ages 25-34 largely based in North America and Europe — and they seek intentional and socially-responsible experiences abroad. They love to eat delicious food, try new things and experience different cultures!

Traverse averages roughly 10,000 monthly page views with approx. 7,000 unique visitors. Most of my readers are new visitors directed to my site via Pinterest and SEO optimized search traffic from Google.

Off the site, my content is shared to a combined 10,000+ followers on multiple platforms including Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook. The core strengths of my content are engagement and a long shelf life. Where the industry average for Instagram engagement is 1-3%, my posts regularly get 10-12% engagement rates, and my high Pinterest traffic rates guarantee that blog posts will engage readers for 6-12 months after the publish date.

What Do They Say?
"It is always nerve-wracking handing over the most visible part of our company’s brand presence to a temporary staff member. However, Megan proved herself to be considerate, thoughtful, and extremely hard-working. It was a pleasure having Megan as a member of our team, and I would recommend her for any position marketing or communications, or media relations."

Need a
Photographer?

Photography has been a passion of mine for many years. As a self-taught photographer, it has been a long journey to develop my skills and get comfortable behind the camera. I am currently shooting on a Canon 6D Mark ii with several key lenses.

My blog is an expression of both my written and photographic creativity. I specialize largely in food, interiors and landscape photography with some dabbling in wildlife and portrait work as well. 

I typically work as a photographer in collaboration with other deliverables, such as a press trip or destination campaign; but I have also worked in a freelance capacity. I am open for hire on campaigns, portrait sessions, commercial shoots and any other needs my clients request!

I’m on Instagram!
