The topics below are what we’re looking for most at the moment, but we’ll consider all submissions regardless of topic.  

Topics you're interested in writing about:


All articles must be your own work.  Please do not submit articles which have been published elsewhere.  

IMAGES:  Submissions with high quality, relevant images which the author owns will be given priority.  Please do not submit images which are not your own.  If you do not have photographs to supplement your writing we still encourage you to submit your piece.  

CONTENT:  While we love stories, guides, tips, tricks, and itineraries, diary style submissions tend not to be accepted.   

GRAMMAR AND SOURCES:  We base our editing style on the Chicago Manual of Style and believe in linking to sources used.  Be sure to include any sources you relied on so we can give proper credit where it’s due!  

LENGTH:  A minimum of 800 words is preferred, and 1200-2000 is ideal.  

Thanks for submitting! We'll be sending you an email confirmation and follow up shortly!
