Are you a representative of a company within the travel industry looking to market your brand online? If so, Living the Dream is for you!
Living the Dream was founded in 2008 and is a leading resource dedicated to helping travelers plan their trips around the world. Presently, our site focuses on sharing once-in-a-lifetime experiences around the world be it outdoor adventure experiences, off-the-beaten-path destinations (US and international), how-to guides, and all things culinary tourism to name a few.
Along with sharing these priceless experiences, we provide valuable tips and advice to help others make their own once-in-a-lifetime vacations a reality!
Our 2023 travel plans include Prague, Czech Republic (May); Piedmont, Italy (May); Maine (June), and Norway (TBD summer) as of now.
- Note: In 2020, we split off wine tourism subjects to a dedicated wine blog, The Grape Pursuit. Any wine-related coverage will be published on this site with non-wine coverage hosted on Living the Dream. Jeremy is finishing his WSET Diploma in wine certification in May 2023.
Living the Dream Statistics at a Glance
Living the Dream received over 354,000 page views in 2021 (ranging from 22,000 to 37,000 monthly page views). Like most travel websites, we saw a significant reduction in traffic beginning March 2020 due to the pandemic as most of the content featured on our site is international. Prior to the global shutdown, our site was receiving 70,000-95,000 page views per month and in April 2023 we received approximately 36,900 page views.
Presently Living the Dream has over 65,000 fans on social media and has a strong presence on search engines- allowing us to reach active travelers researching the world's top destinations.
