PR, Media, and Advertising
Adventurous Kate: The Solo Female Travel Blog is the leading blog geared toward female independent travelers.
Since Kate McCulley started Adventurous Kate in early 2010, it has since become one of the best examples of easy, safe, and adventurous solo travel for women, while retaining its trademark self-deprecating humor and fun-loving voice.
Few travel niches are growing faster than solo female travel, as voices like Kate’s show women how easy, safe, and fun it can be to travel the world alone.

Campaigns, Partnerships, and Press Trips
Kate prefers custom trips designed for her audience: budget adventure travel trips with time for independent discovery.
A campaign, or a themed travel series on AdventurousKate.com, is an excellent way to promote your destination to our audience of highly educated and adventure-loving female travelers, and many tourism boards and companies take advantage of this opportunity.
