They are a partner of ours and we continue to cooperate in various ways, not only on trips, but we also integrate our experiences with them (pure travel as well as business and social media, and advocacy in areas like sustainable tourism) into our speaking engagements at travel and tourism conferences and also into inspirational keynotes and speeches. We feel its entirely natural because we’ve enjoyed our travel experiences as well as G Adventures’ overall approach and our shared values around responsible and sustainable tourism, placing value on the human dimension of travel and also work done by its NGO arm, Planeterra.

G (then Gap) contacted us about the program, but as we mentioned above, we had prior first-hand experience with their product and delivery on a trip we took with them to Antarctica

I realize your last comment here was a year and a half ago. I’m curious how your relationship with G adventures is now. I’m also curious about the selection process. Were you nominated for a place as a Wanderer in Residence by G or did you submit yourselves?

We very much enjoyed the free trip we received from Gap Adventures to Tanzania – it was a great experience. However, it is important to note that even if a tour is provided for us for free, we are still responsible for paying for visas, tips, food, etc. – we have spent more than a thousand dollars of our own money on tours. So “free tours” end up being an financial investment from us as well.

The debate about whether it is possible to give an unbiased opinion of experiences that are provided definitely has been an ongoing one for bloggers, journalists and any kind of writers. Perhaps the best thing is for you to take a look for yourself with our Tanzania posts.

GAP adventures is tapping into the power of influential bloggers for their own benefit..smart marketing. Unfortunately, I believe it will remain hard to have an unbiased opinion of your experiences when GAP is paying for journeys!

Yes, all is subject to change at this point, but Middle East is firmly on our radar. I’ve loved reading your stories from Syria & Lebanon.

You both seem like a natural choice for this program.

Glad to hear you’re heading to the Middle East in the relatively near future (subject to change of course)!

Thanks for the congrats & hope to see you & Kyle soon.

@Kirsty: I do hope that this type of mutually beneficial partnership becomes more the norm. Gap Adventures has led the way on other travel-related initiatives, so it’s great to see them take a leadership role in working with bloggers and social media. Let’s see what happens!
