While Snapchat is great for receiving photos of your friends cat, it’s even greater for sharing and receiving travel inspiration.
In fact, as a traveler, I’m hooked on Snapchat. And while I love sharing the best of the best on Instagram, I love being able to go behind the Insta shot and show and share way more.
So read more below about what you can expect from me on Snapchat, as well as my Snapchat philosophy, and come join the adventure!
What You Can Expect:
A behind the scenes look at my travels in real time
Tons of useful info on: the best places to stay and eat, and amazing things to see and do
A curated look at my favorite travel gear, from clothing to backpacks, boots, electronics and more
General travel tips and general travel ridiculousness (you guys are my companions on the road since I often travel solo for work)
And when I’m not traveling: I share with you the best of LA (where I live), my favorite travel songs and travel inspiration in the form of new travel articles I’ve written — plus much more.
Oh, and also, an insane chipmunk lives in my suitcase and occasionally follows me around the world (the chipmunk and I don’t take ourselves too seriously)
My Snapchat Philosophy:
Be Useful. Have Fun.
Whenever I snap, I approach it with this mantra: Be Useful. Have Fun. I want you to watch my Snapchat stories and leave having learned something new — something informative, inspiring and actionable — something useful. That’s why, in addition to the info I dish out in videos and photos, I also like to re-cap my top recommendations from a story by writing them out on a black screen — that way you can screenshot them and revisit them when you need to recall the information.
I also like to keep things light on Snapchat — it’s all about helping you travel better and having fun while doing it!
Lastly, I Snap for you guys, not myself. Meaning two things — 1) I don’t do too much extraneous Snapping for Snapping’s sake — and 2) My snaps are less, “Hey, look at me!” and more “Hey, let me help you imagine yourself here.”
Ultimately, if I can help inspire you to travel, and put a smile on your face while doing it, then that’ll be my Snapchat mission accomplished.
