Happy days! It looks like we made it through the first year here at Breathe With Us.
Over the past year, we’ve been writing articles, sharing photos and making videos about our trips. It has been a hard yet rewarding ride!
Trust us when we say it is actually a lot more work than we ever anticipated. We have a background in IT and that really helps, but there’s so much more to blogging than just writing that it can be a bit overwhelming. Blogging is a continuous learning process and we’ve been members of Travel Blog Success for a while now, which really helped us to get started and has a very knowledgeable and active community of bloggers.
This post is not just about celebrating the past, but also to open up a bit regarding what our goals and plans for the future are. You’ll see more videos coming along, a dedicated photography section, and more articles about our travels with tips, guides, and chronicles.
Now a question for our readers! What else would you like to see at Breathe With Us?
Let’s look at some of our best moments from the past year.
We wrote 56 articles in a year, achieving our goal of averaging at least one a week. Our strategy was to mix the subjects of the articles week after week to make it more interesting to follow our adventures.
Some of our most popular articles are, without much surprise, about our trips to Iceland. Here’s the top 5:
- Iceland road trip: The ultimate guide
- Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon
- The road to Landmannalaugar
- Top 10 things to do in Jordan
- What to pack for a trip to Iceland
We love photography and share our best shots over at Instagram. Here are some of our top photos so far:
Videos are our most recent effort in order to share our travels and we’re still learning a lot about it. In the meanwhile, you can find here two of our favorite videos and more on our YouTube channel.
A quick update on our plans for the remainder of the year:
- Explore the UK: we just got back from Wales
- Weekend getaway to Copenhagen, Denmark
- Weekend getaway to Monaco
- An ancient civilization, pyramids, and pharaohs: we’re going on an adventure trip to Egypt!
- Yet another visit to Paris, France
- A couple of visits to Portugal to see family and explore a bit
Thank you for reading our blog and keep coming back for more travel content.
