ThePlanetD is Everywhere!

OK, Everywhere is an exaggeration, but with all the writing and guest appearances we've been doing lately, it does feel like everywhere and besides, we like the title.

ThePlanetD Media Appearances

It has been an exciting time for us as we've settled into slowing down and accepting less travel opportunities. It's actually given us the time to explore other project and write for other people. It's been ages since we've done a round up of all the places we've shown up around the Internet, so we thought we'd highlight a few of our favourite special appearances on the net!

USA Today

Speaking of Intrepid Travel, we joined them last week in a huge Polar Twitter Chat about our time in Antarctica and the Arctic. For those of you who didn't know, Intrepid Travel was the first company that took a chance on Dave and I and worked with us. They were one of the pioneers of people working with bloggers and we are always thrilled to be able to work with them whenever we can. Enjoy our interview about the Polar regions on their blog!

Expedia Viewfinders

This is the tops of our list for thrilling projects, but we put it later in the post because we think most of you know about our Expedia relationship already. Did you know that we are regular contributors to the Expedia Viewfinder blog. We share our stories from around the world with Expedia readers and it's a thrill and huge honour to work with them and our talented fellow Viewfinders. We'll be seeing them next month in Maui and we can't wait for our yearly reunion!

There is an editor at who we absolutely adore. Jo Piazza is has published several books, is an award winning writer and for some unknown reason, has taken a liking to us. We are very grateful for Jo's support. She has allowed us to write for Yahoo Travel whenever we have something interesting to share and I must say, our latest article about Dave's accident in the Amazon was something we were very proud of.

Matador Network

We've always loved Matador Network. As a matter a fact, they were the first publication we ever wrote for online when we started our blog that paid us some money! We've never forgotten their generosity is sharing our articles at ThePlanetD and giving us a break when we were new writers. We even were a part of their early testers of Matador U!

We've had a few conversations with the guys there and when they asked us if we'd mind them spotlighting Dave's accident on the Amazon, we were happy to chat with the team. We actually had two articles come out of that interview and I must admit, the more personal one by … was our favourite!
