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.
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!
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.
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, 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.
