High Heels and a Backpack is an established travel blog that focuses on travel in Greece and the Mediterranean. Since being founded in 2016, it has developed a dedicated, diverse international audience.
The philosophy behind High Heels and a Backpack is based on delving beneath the surface of destinations travelled, gaining a deeper understanding of countries and cultures, and learning that travel is more than just seeing the sights.
High Heels and a Backpack has an audience of 250,000 monthly readers, and 300,000 monthly page views. I also have over 46,000 social media followers split across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
There are a number of ways in which we can work together. I am open to sponsored posts, brand collaborations, tourism board collaborations, press trips, and partnerships if it’s a good fit with my readership.
Please note that I properly disclose all sponsored posts in accordance with FTC regulations. I do not sell links or engage in Black Hat SEO practices.
Please refrain from emailing me with requests for me to publish content that contains a link to your client’s website. Unfortunately, I receive dozens of these every day. I will simply mark it as spam and not respond.
