Caroline’s natural presenting style and honesty about the realities of blogging gave her session a freshness and relatability that was highly rated by our attendees. We look forward to having Caroline back at our future events.

Caz had everyone’s full attention during her recent presentation at Tasting Australia’s Words to Go culinary and travel bloggers forum in Adelaide, South Australia. Her engaging tales of life on the road with her family were an insight into following one’s dreams, using social media and blogging to market a destination and the challenges along the way. Caz’s spirited presentation inspired our delegates and reinforced that travel is extremely rewarding and adds to a person’s growth

Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to dress you and share in the wonderful experience in a very small way of going to the White House I also wanted to let you know since you wore that dress, it has been going off and I have had a few orders from USA for them

“Double the delivery! That’s what you get when you work with Y Travel Blog’s Craig and Caz, two of the most likeable and most professional influencers on the road (and off!). Alone, they have their own strengths, but as a duo they are a communication force; creating post after post (I never knew you could dissect a destination in so many ways) and matching each with stunning images of real people doing real travel — and really enjoying it too.
What puts them in rarefied air is their huge following and their fast follow up. Quick to respond to pitches, Caz and Craig are also swift in sealing the deal. There’s no need for chasing, no whinging, and no frustration. The proof of the post is in the inbox, in the time frame promised.
If you want to work with genuine people who happen to deliver big magic through multiple channels, then hello, this is your team.”
Shelley Winkel, Global Publicity Manager – Eastern Hemisphere, Tourism and Events Queensland
References from the Great Crusade campaign:
“During his 16 days in New Zealand on the Great Crusade, Craig worked with Caz to publish 14 blog posts, which attracted 333 comments from their readers. They also utilized their social networks by posting 192 tweets and 42 facebook status updates all relating to the campaign. This was by far the highest engagement generated by any of the 6 bloggers who came on tour.
Qantas and Ogilvy were very impressed and appreciative of the hard work, commitment and passion both Caz and Craig showed for The Great Crusade over the past six months, and would thoroughly recommend them as ambassadors for other events and campaigns in the future.”
Mitch Phillips, Ogilvy
“Early in 2011 Qantas identified and approached yTravel Blog (Caz and Craig) as a good fit to experience and promote “The Great Crusade”, a Qantas Wallabies leverage campaign leading up to the Rugby World Cup. During and after the pre-launch in April, Caz and Craig’s social media and blogging activity were fantastic. They understood both objectives that Qantas were trying to achieve, and we and Ogilvy (our digital and social advertising agency) were so impressed by their efforts that we invited Craig to join the Great Crusade for 16 days in New Zealand.
Overall we were impressed with the coverage, commitment, and passion for the Qantas brand that Craig and Caz showed. This was the first integrated campaign that Qantas had proactively engaged with bloggers. Craig and Caz were a fantastic example of how this strategy and approach can deliver impressive results for an iconic brand. They have been fantastic advocates of the Qantas brand and that is something we are extremely grateful to them for. We hope to continue a close relationship with them in the future.”
Rachael Butler, Qantas Airways
Their enthusiastic and keen nature made working with them an absolute pleasure on this campaign. Always prompt with updates over the course of the two month program, Caz and Craig took this project on with a serious attitude toward delivering their best and always remained friendly and approachable. A perfect blogging duo – We look forward to collaborating with them again.
