About Travel Notes & Beyond
Hi, I am Anda Galffy – an award-winning travel writer, destination marketer and influencer. Travel Notes & Beyond started in 2013 as a collection of travel stories, photographs and travel impressions from my wanderings around the world. I believe that storytelling remains at the very heart of destination marketing. What people really engage with are the ‘real’ stories of your destination, the ‘actual’ experiences they can have when they are there.
My posts focus on beautiful destinations, culture, arts and food, while expressing my personal opinions about the places I visit, the people I meet and their traditions. I strive to introduce my readers to unexpected and unique travel experiences that will provide itinerary ideas and inspiration for their future travel plans. I write mostly about European and North American destinations, two fascinating continents that I have very strong ties to.

To promote your destination or brand we can work together in a number of ways:
• Press trips focusing on European or North American destinations, culture and food. I can provide exposure before, during and after the press trip, including real time exposure on Twitter, Facebook, Pintrest and Trover, followed by detailed blog posts, link-back to the respective businesses’ websites and short travel stories in “The Weekly Postcard” series.
• Reviews of hotels, restaurants, tours, and other activities. If your business or service would be of interest to my readers I would love to hear from you. Invite me to experience what you have to offer and I will share my experience with my readers.
• Product reviews
If your product may be of interest to my readers and I like it, I want to help getting the word out. I can write a detailed review and promote it on all my social media outlets.
