Adventure in You is an adventure travel blog that was started by yours truly along with my partner. It went from being our personal blog to now being a full blown adventure travel magazine. In the beginning stages of the blog, we were trying to find a niche that we could focus on. There are literally SO MANY blogs out there and we wanted to find a way to stand out. With much excitement, we are happy to announce that we are currently looking for writers to join the Adventure in You team! (cue in imaginary hoots and claps!)

Writing for Adventure in You
While there are many websites that write about adventure and all the fun activities they do, we decided to start reviewing them. Since we decided on this, Adventure in You quickly partnered with many adventure companies from around the world who were all eager to get their adventures reviewed. To help us with the insurmountable feat of reviewing adventures from all over the world, we decided to form the Adventure Review Team. Together, we are a band of travel misfits who gallivant around the world reviewing different adventures from jungle trekking to skydiving over the Swiss Alps. Our reviews are geared to provide you useful information, a good dose of entertainment, and more importantly, an honest opinion and account of our experience.
To help us grow this section of our blog, we are looking for more talented adventure junkies to join our Adventure Review Team who are based or traveling around SOUTHEAST ASIA.

In return for writing for us, you get to go on FREE ADVENTURES*. Anything from bungee jumping, trekking up volcanoes to parasailing in the place of your next travel destination. This is also a perfect opportunity for budding writers and bloggers to help get your writing out there. Sound too good to be true? So far, our Adventure Junkies have gone Rally Driving, Skydiving, SUP Paddle boarding and Ice climbing. I could go on and on but I think you get the picture.
* When we say “Free” we mean you will be working with our trusted partners and the compensation is the adventure itself. To keep our adventure reviews fair and honest we do not accept monetary compensations to review them.

Writing Tips: For each adventure review, we are looking for a minimum of 800 words. Please make sure that your content is original and has not been posted previously anywhere on the internet. For reviews, try to give details in the middle of the post (i.e. approximate cost, what they need to bring etc.) People read these reviews to get as much information as they can so try to be informative and honest about your experience. If you are reviewing previous adventures and cannot remember the exact details, try to find information online.
