I discovered your blog when we were planning a trip to Hawaii last year & found it so refreshing to hear things from the perspective of other Aussies travelling with kids.
Earlier this year we started thinking of a trip up to Cairns for July 2020 so I immediately went looking through your blog for anything on Far North Queensland & the posts I found changed our whole plans to have a longer trip & include a stay in Cape Tribulation & go zip lining & even which reef tour to book in Cairns.
I love the honesty, the attention to detail & the focus on how it works with a family in your blog!Reader feedback

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.Rachel Butler, Qantas Airways

Double the delivery! That’s what you get when you work with Y Travel Blog’s Craig and Caz, two of the most likable 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 rarefield 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 whining, 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 & Events Queensland
