5 weeks in South America & the perks of being a travel blogger

  • Apr 1, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Were you ever curious about South America and the perks of being a travel blogger?

Join our next Meetup which will host, Walter Schärer & his partner Katja.

Together, they will relate their journey through Chile & Argentina, looking for a story which they hoped would be published in the SWISS Airline's board magazine and which finally did!

Not only will they show incredible pictures of their 5 week trip but they'll also tell you about the perks & tough moments of being travel bloggers.

To give you a flavor, these might be some of the topics you'll hear about:

• How we convinced SWISS to donate us Business Class Seats 

• Why we desperately tried to convince Relais & Châteaux hotels about our blog 

• Patagonia: For hours there's nothing to see - actually a must see! 

• Torres del Paine: From the Matterhorn South America 

• Perito Moreno: Hike to the world's only still growing glaciers 

• Atacama desert: Living on large feet 

Check out some pics here:

    Thanks everyone for coming and thanks Walter&Katja for presenting!

    Unfortunately, we had to do today's event without our organizer Aurélie who was sick (get well soon!), but it was very interesting anyway.
