Getting to Machu Picchu, if one doesn't want to spend a fortune on the train or isn't able to do a 3-4 day trek, can be challenging. An 8-hour van ride across 12,000ft/4000m mountain passes and along dirt tracks on the edge of valley cliffs, followed by a 2-hour hike along the side of the railway track, finally brought me within striking distance of this world-wonder. A very early morning (more like middle of night) wake up, and finally I was able to capture some of what I had been dreaming about, before the hordes arrived.

Hi all! I’m new to the group and excited to be a part of it. My husband and I have just started our first long term trip (six months) and are documenting our travels on our blog and through Instagram. We’re new to blogging, so we’re learning as we go, but are excited to share our experiences and tips. Travel is baked into our relationship since we met in Paris and dated long-distance for over three years. Please check us out and give us a follow if you’re interested in seeing more!
There’s more to Far North #Queensland, #Australia than just the Great Barrier Reef, though that is a part of it, of course. On a road trip we take you from the reef, to the rainforests, from #Aboriginal culture to little villages and a lot more.
Hi all! Was added in a couple of weeks ago, and couldn't be more grateful (thanks again, Penny!). Been meaning to introduce myself since. I have been a student of Economics, Data Science, and Sociology in the past, with a stint as a Management Consultant somewhere in between... This might make me sound indecisive, but I like to think of myself as trying to be a Polymath - a quality that is sadly undervalued or even disregarded and disdained in today's specialist-seeking world. I am a sensitive being, looking to primarily learn and grow, and find the toxicities that come with the need to make money too heavy on me. Travel to me is more than just a fad or an opportunity to flood my Instagram - it's my panacea for the otherwise inevitable depression I'd fall into...
But that's enough ranting for now! I'd like to introduce my fledgling blog, 'Eccentric and Anachronistic', where I have been writing for some months, and where there's a couple of travel stories up already - mostly from Russia, where I spent the last couple of years doing a Masters Programme. I honestly feel this part of the world has been maligned and unfairly received a lot of bad press - part of the bigger agenda to build a biased global narrative, but that's a debate for another day perhaps. Since it's the start of winter, the first story I share here is from Murmansk in the Russian Arctic, where I was last winter, and where I witnessed the spectacular Aurora Borealis for the first time in my life! For those who haven't seen them yet, I hope this inspires you to go try see them soon (from Russia, Canada, Alaska, upper Scotland, the Nordics - whichever part of the Frigid Zone is closest to you).
Thank you for enduring such a long intro (if you did), and I would love and appreciate your feedback right here. I have been hoping to turn this innocuous hobby of storytelling through writing & photography into something bigger, and it would be wonderful to get your help and support towards that end 😊 ...

In order to practice, I made a list of all of Oahu's "top sunrise & sunset spots", and I'm now going to each to practice photography. In order to expedite my learning, I first interviewed all of the best photographers I could find and made two lists- 1. Photography Tip's & Tricks and 2. Habits of Good Photographers. I'm hoping that some of you in this group can add or critique these two lists and we can build even better lists. Thanks so much, I look forward to sharing Hawaii photos and learning photography in this group. If any of you ever come to Hawaii let me know in advance, I'll block work, and we'll go shoot at all da best places my treat. Aloha! ... See MoreSee Less

First of all, a hearty thanks to the admins and the rest for letting me be a part of the group.
I’m Raghav from India and although I have my own business, I am also a travel/food blogger and content writer. I have now been traveling for the better half of three decades and have managed to cover a very small part of the world (lots of repeat places thanks to Business travel).
Over the years I’ve traveled solo, with friends and family, on work, and of course on vacation. Last year I had a three week holiday in Switzerland which was just the best time ever.
Hope to connect with you all soon via the group. If interested you can find me on the following social media platforms; Twitter/instagram - @raghavmodi Facebook - TickerEatsTheWorld

Travel Writers - 4 Strategiies for Simultaneous Submissions.
Sharing this post by Roy Stevenson - Pitchtravelwrite. "Anyone who follows my rigorous marketing approach to freelance writing knows that I’m a strong advocate of simultaneous submissions. Many freelance writers shun the practice of submitting their queries simultaneously. Their big concern is, “What do I do if more than one editor wants to buy my story?” This article answers this burning question. Here are four strategies to use when you do strike it rich. These strategies have worked nicely for me when more than one editor clamors
It's hard to see the terrorist attacks around Europe, UK, and USA lately. My husband and I were in Barcelona during the August Attack! I was flabbergasted at how quick and seamless the city came together!
As we approach our move to Europe, I am filled with hesitations but cannot let fear dictate my dreams.
Well I'll just tell you a little about myself. Im a traveling Sea Gypsy. My husband is the sailor and I am the gypsy. We left the comforts of the United States in 2014 to sail the Caribbean. We fell in love with the Western side and have decided to roam around there during sailing season and travel everywhere else during hurricane season, be it by plane or land.
I started a blog when we left for fun and to also encourage other to breakout of their comfort zone and live their dreams. I planned to find a NGO to work with but that just hasnt happened yet. Last year we returned to the states to fill up the cruising kitty and we return home to our boat, Saga Sea, in less than two months. We are so excited
We both want to find remote work that we can do from the boat. I have never been much of a writter but this year I was asked to write about our life and our future plans for a housesitting magazine. I was very honored and it proved that even dyslexic people can write, well with a good editor. 😊

It’s a coworking space that operates on an exchange basis. Writers can stay here for free in exchange for creating everything from travel to social media content. It is a really innovative concept, especially for new travel writers who are breaking into the field or digital nomads wanting to ‘travel the world for free’.
