Why work with a travel blogger?
People are turning to blogs more and more for inspiration and trusted advice when it comes to planning their travels. They want to discover if the destinations and hotels in glossy magazines and on flashy websites really are as good as they seem. In other words, they’re looking for the truth, and that’s where the travel blogger comes in. As well as writing about destinations, accommodation and tours, a good blogger will introduce personality to the tales, and thus build a strong relationship with their audience. People follow those they can trust, and the Conversant Traveller blog is nothing if not totally honest.
The travel blog really is the new way to research and advertise holiday destinations!

So what is Conversant Traveller?
Conversant Traveller is a blog founded in 2013 by me, Heather Cole, during a Saharan camel trek in Morocco. It receives over 370,000 page views each year, from travellers all over the world, with the majority from the UK and the US.
Geared towards adventurous landscape exploration and quirky luxury accommodation, Conversant Traveller provides travellers with real and honest experiences, destination tips and observational discussion. Focusing on unique and unusual experiences, and high quality local accommodation, the blog is the perfect platform to assist other people in achieving their own travel aspirations.
With a solid background in the travel industry and an education in history and physical geography, I like to think I have a strong affinity with the natural world. A creative writer for many years, I have written a book on local history and been featured in National Geographic Traveller. My writing has also appeared in Wanderlust Magazine and I’m a freelance copywriter for a number of tour operators and travel providers all over the world.
I have visited 39 countries across 5 continents, always travelling independently with my husband Peter, who is the blog photographer. Together we have camped with Bedouin in the Sahara, trekked through knee-high mud in the jungles of Borneo, swum with sharks in the Galapagos, ploughed fields with buffalo in Laos, hugged trees in Peru and been caught in shoot-outs in Lesotho. We’ve also slept in numerous castles, stayed at luxury safari lodges and enjoyed the attention of private butlers.
It’s all about adventure by day, and luxury by night.
