Meet us halfway through 2013

Nothing you aren’t aware of: Time goes by so fast! Already halfway through 2013, it’s time to do a little wrap-up and celebrate our first 6 months blogging.

When we started A World to Travel back in January, we couldn’t imagine how many great things were to come. Here are some milestones we would like to share with you.

January

A World to Travel goes live.

With some friends, we go on a trip to visit some of the great outdoors that surround Galicia: Las Medulas and Cabarceno.

19 days after bringing A World to Travel to life, an article about Paredes de Coura festival gets 2,5K likes in 24 hours. We couldn’t believe the traffic spike. Hopefully, we’ll be reporting from there in the following 2013 edition again!

We get on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Flickr, YouTube, Klout, About.me and other Social Media networks. As a side note, is this Social Media networks madness going to stop at some point?

One of us attends Fitur and comes back home after having met people so passionate about travel and blogging like her (finally !) and with 2 amazing news: A cool Berlin trip to happen before the end of 2013 and the first prize at the AllMexicoTrip contest that would take her to Mexico for 17 days last May!

February

24 hours later all those great news, a bus accident takes part while arriving to French Alps. Luckily, no one got hurt but it’s still a nightmare to just think about it.

We start our newsletter. Today, it gathers more tan 1500 subscribers.

Our website goes bilingual and we start to blog in spanish too.

March

We attend ITB, meet a bunch of amazing people there and stay 7 days instead of 1 in Berlin. Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania and Italy were all lined up after Germany in what would be 1 month of budget european travel.

April

Our On the Road Interview series takes off and a lot of interesting people who have found the balance between life and travel is already being featured here.

May

Thanks to your votes, we win the #iberiamayors Lisboa contest and our video-guide will be soon uploaded to YouTube and shared with you here

A brief visit to Ancares gave us the opportunity of breath and live the great outdoors we adore for a couple of days.

#AllMexicoTrip takes part and it is just amazing. 17 days discovering 6 different mexican states that will be bringing more articles to this blog for months to come!

June

The month starts with a Lisbon weekend to record #iberiamayorlisboa guide. From there, we road-trip our way to Galicia.

Ons islands were also in our itinerary for the month. Free camping in a National Park and incredible sunsets can’t be missed!

USA trip starts. So far, Bristol in Rhode Island and always fab New York are checked!

Ok, great. But what’s ahead of you?

The USA trip will have us on the road almost till the end of July. Then, we will be probably spending the rest of the summer near our bornplace. Great music festivals take part in Portugal and Spain and we wouldn’t like to miss them!

September, October and November will keep us busy with trips to Berlin, Emilia Romagna ( Blogville anyone? 😉 and the WTC London.

We are also working on a few other adventures and really good news are about to come. Stay updated!

Here’s to the next 6 months!
