Travel Itinerary Planning: Italy Beyond the Obvious
Italy Beyond the Obvious started in August of 2008, when friends of friends told me they’d be happy to pay for a trip planning service. As soon as you work as a tour leader in Italy, everyone wants advice. So I’d been planning trips to Italy for friends and family since about the mid-1990′s , and until August of 2008 I wasn’t charging for them. But when I started spending time getting to know my travelers in order to make good recommendations, I realized that it was much more time-consuming compared to doing it for friends I already knew well. But so many people said they’d be happy to pay for such a valuable service, and thus, Italy Beyond the Obvious was born. I have had more work than I can handle ever since.
Write a blog post for Italy Beyond the Obvious
Please contact me at madeline at italybeyondtheobvious dot com to pitch a blog post. However, a few tips:
- Your article must be specifically about Italy. So for example, general advice about travel isn’t a good fit. Specific Italy-related travel advice is great.
- Every single link in your article must be about or directly related to Italy, and only Italy. You can have a link to your product or service as long as it is Italy-related. If it isn’t, please don’t bother contacting me.
- Your article must not sound like an ad. If I think it sounds like an ad, I will not publish it.
- Your article must provide useful, timely, and relevant content about Italy.
