“We’re working with Valerie & Valise…”

Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

Okay, for starters: there is no person named “Valise.” Please don’t address emails to “Dear Valise” because that’s just silly! My boyfriend is called “Mr. Valise” in some posts, but that’s not his real name. My valise is my bag, ok?

I love working with companies that understand the results that travel bloggers can drive for their brands. With a background in marketing, I bring a unique set of both strategic knowledge and influencer insight to any campaign I work on.

TL;DR (In Case You’re Short on Time, Here are the Highlights)

  • I’ve worked with over a dozen destinations to promote tourism for them.
  • I’ve partnered with over 50 companies to promote their accommodations, products, or tours.
  • I don’t agree to do campaigns if I can’t see how I will be instrumental to your success.

Yes, you read that right: I don’t work on campaigns if I don’t think I can help you succeed at them. If I do come on board, I’ll try and help you make it a success based on the defined KPIs.

I’m also happy to promote the right companies to my over 76,000 followers on social media, in addition to my readers. Social media promotion is usually included in partnerships I do, though I am open to blog-only or social media-only campaigns.

The V&V Media Kit

I have a media Kit available and updated roughly once per month around the 1st of the month.

In it, you will find:

  • more information about the mission behind this blog and why I write it
  • stats and screenshots of my traffic and reader engagement #fulltransparency
  • social media following and strategy insights
  • what I can offer your destination or brand

Freelance Writing

As much as I consider myself a travel blogger, I also consider myself a freelance travel writer. I have worked hard over the years to cultivate working relationships with editors at several major publications:


I cannot guarantee coverage in exchange for a trip, experience, product, or accommodation. I can, however, work with you to craft engaging stories that editors may be interested in.

If you want to send me your PR pitch, please email it to valisemag+pr@gmail.com. I’d be happy to review it and discuss with you if I think there’s a story there – and if I’m the right person to tell that story.
