Hi there,  

I recently came across your 2 Backpackers blog and was wondering if there were any sponsored post opportunities available? I represent a number of travel clients who are looking to sponsor posts with a contextual link in, either in the text itself or in a disclosure at the end. 

Let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in, or if you have any similar alternatives and we can discuss further and make arrangements.

You can contact me on James.Dart@accordgroup.co.uk.

Regards,

James

The wheel often grinds slowly in the world of dolphin advocacy, but this week has seen a flurry of newsworthy events. It's important to recognize the good when it happens, especially when we deal with much that is bad, so Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project would like to end this week on a positive ...

Basic, suitable for a sleepover. Not as clean as it should be. Fake wood floors are dirty in the room and mildew on shower walls. The Lobby is not on the ground floor which makes it unwelcoming, because you will never see the reception staff after checking in. Can be loud at night in the halls as door slams echo, people talk on the phone or traditional music plays during early morning hours.

Being from NJ, Diners are a way of life and I was pleasantly surprised when I found one in the small town of McPherson, KS. The atmosphere is perfect for a Saturday morning, bustling with patrons and servers rushing around everywhere in a long, very narrow space. A counter lines the one side, from which you can watch your food being cooked on the skillet. The prices are low, the servings large. My omelet and hash browns were cooked perfectly, and the coffee refills kept coming. The only thing missing is a local, fresh and organic focus, but I noticed I can't be too picky in Kansas. This place will be my weekend staple.

Personable customer service still exists! Monty has been exterminating for us for a year now and has always come with a smile and great service. We started with a big ant problem, and were concerned with harsh chemicals for our outside garden and cat. That natural products from New Era have done the job for us. We are on a bi-monthly treatment plan that has worked well. If the ants start to come back before our next treatment, we can call anytime and Monty will come service the house. Great service, great guy and natural solutions.
