Marriott Traveler, the award-winning digital magazine has come together in collaboration with Star Alliance to release a content series ,”Round the World” featuring photos, videos and articles of eight notable travellers who had recently circumnavigated the globe.
For the content series, Marriott worked closely with Star Alliance to develop themed itineraries for notable travel bloggers, vloggers and social media influencers as they leveraged Star Alliance’s new Round the World Ticket. This ticket enables travellers to explore multiple destinations in more than 192 countries for the price of one fare. The series will document every aspect of the influencer’s trips that included destinations like Bangkok, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Chicago, Dubai, Istanbul, New York City, Rome, Seoul, Singapore, Tokyo, Toronto and other locations.
“This project is exactly the way we want to explore the world – through the eyes of locals and travellers visiting a country for the first time,” said Marc Graser, editorial director, Marriott Creative + Content Marketing. “We were excited to work with Star Alliance to send this amazing group of travellers around the globe.”
Eight travellers who were chosen to share their journeys with Marriott Traveler readers:
- Karen Day: Editor at Large for Cool Hunting
- Justin Carmack: The creator of travel blog True Nomads
- Mark Wiens: A food blogger and video creator for Migrationology
- Megan & Mike Jerrard: Journalist and Photographers for MappingMegan
- Mr Scott Eddy: Creator of the luxury travel blog MrScottEddy
- Oneika Raymond: Creator of travel site with teaching elements at OneikaTheTraveler
- Michael Schulz: Travel photographer and owner of Berlinstagram
The content would be debuted on both Marriott Traveler and Star Alliance’s “Round the World” itinerary planning site.
