Fish and Feathers was launched by journalist Hilde Veeren (Feathers) and photographer Maarten Vis (Fish) in 2009. We have both been working in the (travel) magazine business for over ten years, and decided that publishing our stories in travel magazines alone wasn’t enough. We started our blog during a three-month sabbatical in Asia in 2009. At first just for our friends and family, but as soon as we realised our audience grew each day, we professionalised our blog.
Hilde’s favorite spot: “If I have to choose it will forever be Vivenda Goa, a small boutique hotel in Goa where Maarten proposed.” Maarten’s favorite destination: I love islands: Gili Trawangan, Mallorca and even Terschelling. But I bet if I ever get to travel to Chile, I’ll have a new number one!”
We are open to collaborating with travel agencies, do travel product placements or write about organisations and products that are linked to travel and fit our blog. For collaboration enquiries please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We remember the first readers we got and our excitement when the numbers jumped from 50 per day in 2009 (mainly our family and friends) to many more in a few weeks! Every day we got more followers: The Netherlands, the USA, Germany, England, India, Iceland, Australia, Japan, Brazil…. everywhere around the world people read our blog and we are very thankful for that! Last November we restyled our blog, which resulted in even more readers each day. We recently added a Facebook page and Twitter to our blog.
