#Travel Tuesday

A Week in Amsterdam – #TravelTuesday: Velvet Escape

Tagline: Go Explore, experience, and be inspired

Velvet Escape focuses on the luxury side of independent travel and considers itself in the forefront of blogs promoting destinations and experiences at this end of the travel market. However, unlike similarly positioned publications, the open and friendly style doesn’t exclude less well-heeled travellers. The experiences described in Velvet Escape may be rich but the reader needn’t be to gain inspiration and ideas for their own travels.

Started: Dec 2008

The Mysteries of Easter Island
What’s a Coolpacker?
Winter Adventures in Lapland

Velvet EscapeBehind the blog: Amsterdam based Keith Jenkins reinvented himself as a travel blogger when the collapse of the financial services industry ended his career in corporate and investment banking. A flag bearer for social media he frequently speaks on the subject of working with travel bloggers at seminars and conferences around the world.
