Work with me

There are several ways we can work together – from content and editorial services, speaking engagements, and campaigns to meaningful partnerships and brand ambassadorships within the travel industry.

Sample brands I’ve partnered with for various services include: Absolut Vodka, Electrolux, Expedia, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Jetsetter, National Geographic Channel, / Swedish Institute, South African Tourism, Visit Stockholm, Wimduto name a few. I occasionally do reviews of products that align with my travel style and brand. For my Slow Travel Stockholm editorial site, we’re always on the lookout for guest contributors, partners, and potential investors who share our vision.

I’m also a founding member of the Nordic Travel Bloggers (NordicTB) collective which brings together the top professional travel bloggers in the Nordic countries of Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, and Iceland.NGC and NTB

    This site is giving me life! It’s so inspirational and reminds me that life doesn’t have to be routine or boring. It’s so important to step outside the box and follow your heart.

    • Thanks so much Jennifer and I’m deeply honored to hear that! It’s absolutely important to follow your heart even if others doubt you or try to pull you back.

    Dear Lola,

    I am Clarisa Nuñez Melgar from LIma, Peru. I am writing you because i have followed your blog/webpage since a few months and now that I am working on my thesis, was the perfect opportunity to talk to you cause I think you fit just perfectly for my thesis investigation. My thesis is about the lifestyle traveller’s identity and their interaction with virtual media. I am looking for real lifestyle travellers who think of their lives travelling around. I am looking to have interviews with them and get to know them and their stories. Their believes about the trip concept as a way of life and other things related.

    I think you fit perfect in this profile so i will love to interview you. We can arrange a skype meeting. It will not take more than an hour and a half. Let me know if you are interested, you would help me a lot. thank you very much in advance.

    Lola, I want to thank you for your generous donation to our efforts to help build a school in Kenya. This is blogging and human connection at its best. I am coninually moved by the kindness and giving nature of those who I have never even met. I can’t thank you enough … it means the world to me and my daughters. You must be a very special person. Have I told you how much I love your blog??

  • Hey Lola,

    I just came across your photos from Nigeria on Pology and was truly touched. Browsing around your website, I found an inspiring collection of articles and photos. I like the twist you take on travel writing. Keep up the great work!
