    We've teamed up with Brendan van Son of Brendansadventures.com

    Feb182013

    As well as writing posts for our own blog, part of my job is working with the world’s top independent travel bloggers and writers. And thanks to Twitter and attending different events, I’ve been lucky enough to have met many of them over the last few years. One of these is Brendan van Son of Brendansadventures.com who I met in Dublin last year. Brendan’s site is one of my favourite travel sites for many reasons – he likes getting off the beaten track, he’s good at telling stories plus he’s an incredible photographer. That’s why I’m pleased to announce that Hostelworld.com is now the official budget accommodation partner for his site.

    We've teamed up with Janice Waugh aka @SoloTraveler of SoloTravelerBlog.com

    Dec122012

    July 2000 was a big month for me. I had been living in Australia for 9 months and was about to head off travelling. It wasn’t my first experience with independent travel, but it was the first time I set off on my own. Since then I’ve travelled all over the world as a lone traveller. That’s why I’m such a big fan of the blog of Janice Waugh SoloTravelerBlog.com and pleased to announce that Hostelworld.com is now the official budget accommodation partner for her blog.
