2017 saw Lonely Planet reveal their favourite seven travel blogs and launch their groundbreaking Trailblazers programme. And I’m thrilled to announce that Inside the Travel Lab is one of them!
As Deputy Editor Emma Sparks said:
“Our Trailblazers have proven themselves to be pioneers in the blogger and travel influencer sphere, demonstrating best practices and impeccable professionalism. Their writing, photography and videography is top notch and aligns with Lonely Planet’s message. Just like Lonely Planet, our Trailblazers encourage their audiences to explore every day.
“Lonely Planet Trailblazers are ambassadors for our brand and we’ll be working with them very closely over the coming months and years. They will be travelling to Best in Travel destinations to report from the ground, as well as representing Lonely Planet at events and in the media. They’re officially part of the LP family.”
