Hamacareise is a visual travel and photography blog about the love for independent travel, written by globetrotter and photographer, Ingeborg.
With a main focus on adventure travel, culture, backpacking, photography and vegetarian food, Hamacareise mostly has a young and adventurous Scandinavian audience (18-35 years). Readers can find inspiration through travel stories, photo collections, practical guides and other articles about travel and photography.
What’s special about Hamacareise?
When seeking inspiration for new destinations I know first hand how important it is to get a good visual impression of a place. Because of this (and my passion for photography) I value high quality photos, video clips and other visual elements on Hamacareise. Each blog post usually contains between 15-30 photos in different sizes, and all photos are my own if not other is stated.
The length of the articles on Hamacareise is also above average. Each blog post usually contains between 1000-2000 words about a specific destination or topic. This way my readers can get a deeper experience of a place or activity. Longer blog posts also rank better on Google and have a high average reader time on each page (2,5 min on Hamacareise).
I think it’s a good thing to share the knowledge we obtain in life. That’s why I’ve made a Travel Q&A-page where I try to help my readers with questions they may have about travel or photography. Currently the Travel Q&A has over 300 comments.
Back in 2010 I created a 6 step backpacking guide to help travelers with the practicalities for a longer journey. The guide turned out to be very popular and I have keep it updated ever since. In 2016 I also published a personal Travel Planner on PDF for newsletter readers to download for free.
