Travel and writing both sound like a bit of you? This might just be your calling! We want to hear from you and give you the opportunity to write for us, to share your travel stories, experiences, hacks and insider tips for other travel hungry readers to enjoy.

Quality – Ensure a high standard of spelling, grammar, structure and format. You may use text, bullet points or numbers as appropriate.
Strive for a minimum of 500 words in you article, unless it’s a photo-story. Photo-stories must be at least 300 words and include 8 photos.
