Experiential travel is one of the most recent trends in travel. It’s about participation, not observation — and in order to share these authentic experiences, you need a partner who shares something beyond cookie cutter marketing. This is even more true post-pandemic: travelers recognize what a privilege travel is and don’t want to waste their time “checking the box”.
Travelers who enjoy sightDOING are the type of people who fully discover and immerse a destination. That means longer visits, more dollars spent, a connection beyond the Instagram photo, and the possibility of falling in with somewhere so much that they’re already planning a return before they even get on a flight home.

Someone who values sightDOING often incorporates the following elements into their travels:
- Hands-on learning activities, like interactive classes or workshops
- Outdoor soft adventure, like biking tours or snorkeling
- Seeing well-known attractions but incorporating a unique twist, like behind-the-scenes tours
- Opportunities to mingle and connect with locals or try multicultural experiences
- Dining at restaurants offering local ingredients
- Staying at one-of-a-kind accommodations, whether boutique hotels or bed and breakfasts
SEO-Researched Articles: Receive continued traffic long after the initial publication targeted toward customers closer to the final stage of decision-making/purchasing.
Real Advice: The vast majority of my travel is self-planned, which means sightDOING can provide advice on real-life challenges and decisions that press trips often overlook and fill in gaps for information dead spots.
Strong Pinterest Engagement: Unlike traditional social media, Pinterest discoveries have a long shelf-life.
Freelance Contributor: In addition to blogging, I regularly contribute to Forbes Advisor and there may be opportunity to highlight your brand or destination in other relevant stories.
I currently have trips scheduled for:
- Finger Lakes, New York (August 2021)
- Sawtooth Mountains, Idaho (September 2021)
- Minnesota-Wisconsin Roadtrip (October 2021)
On personal trips, I often have time to extend my stay to explore an area more in-depth or tack on nearby regions.
I have limited time available for potential press trips/campaigns (1-2 trips per year) — please contact me at [email protected] if you think your destination or tour is a good fit.
