BarrisTourista is Back! New Design and New Content

It’s Our Anniversary!

I can’t believe it has been a year since the inception of BarrisTourista.com. Even though there were only a few posts the first few months, this week marks a year since the start of the site. Since then, we have covered cultures of different countries, foodie recommendations, street art and style, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NYC, and more. It’s been one hell of a ride.

And now, after several months and much planning, we are proud to bring you the launch of the re-design of BarrisTourista.com. And along with the site re-design will be some new content for you, our much appreciated readers.

So what should you expect?

A More User Friendly Experience

Posts on BarrisTourista.com will now be categorized based on topic and the site will be searchable. We have striven to give the user a more streamlined experience so you can find exactly what you are looking for on the site.


Travel Tips and Tricks

Every Thursday, readers can expect amazing tips and tricks to make you a savvier traveler. These tips will include money saving techniques, ways to maximize your travel, methods for finding the best deals, and more. These tips will span a wide range of areas and will be ideas and methods that I use myself. This Thursday will be the first edition, so be sure to check out this trick that has saved me hundreds.

Note: If there is a topic you want to see covered, sound off in the comments; we’d love your feedback!


BarrisTourista’s Travel Store

There are certain items that I utilize in my travels that make my life easier and make for a more enjoyable experience on the road. The BarrisTourista Travel Store is a compilation of these products in a convenient Amazon store, where most of them are Prime eligible.


Teen Travel Talk

A new feature on the site will be the addition of a new monthly segment “Teen Travel Talk.” This will travel, locations, and experiences from the viewpoint of a teenager. This is for all the moms and dads out there traveling with their kids, and will feature real, first-hand recounting of experiences that you can plan for your family, from a kid’s viewpoint.


Photo Galleries and Prints

BarrisTourista is enhancing its photo galleries to showcase its stunning photographic works. And coming soon, these works will be available as prints, wall photos, and more. You can adorn your home with travel photography for decoration and inspiration.


And More…

And, of course, we will continue to provide you with the same high-quality travel insights, foodie recommendations, hotel reviews, and more.

I appreciate you all coming along for this ride. It has been a crazy year, and I am looking forward to more craziness in the year to come. Remember, it’s not the destination; it’s the journey.

  1. Happy anniversary!! I love your new design. It looks fabulous. I can’t wait to see more of you rnew segments, especially the teen travel talks since you know I’m the mom of a teen. Great job.

  2. Happy Anniversary! Revamps are always great to refresh your readers. I’m excited for the travel tips and tricks. My boyfriend and I take trips but they always go wrong because we are not very good with planning and try to figure out what to do once we get there which is definitely not the best idea because you waste half of the day trying to figure out what to do. So if you have tips on planning and creating an agenda before you get to your destination that would be great!

    1. Thanks, Ayanna! Since you do travel so much, note that every Thursday will feature tips and tricks, with a lot of them being to find good deals on travel. And if you subscribe (right sidebar), you get a downloadable 1-page cheat sheet for finding travel deals. Thanks for visiting! 🙂

  3. Welcome back. I’ll be glad to see more of the food you post, everything always has me hun-ry (in the words of my 3 yr old son lol). Happy blogiversary & congrats on your redesign.

  4. Congrats on your new look. I didn’t know what it looked like before but I really like the design as it is now. I’ll definitely be back to check more things out.

  5. Congrats on your re-design! This must be the season for transformation as I’m seeing it happen all around me. I LOVE to travel as well and am looking forward to continuing to read great content on your site. Keep shining 🙂
