Get to know our speakers: Destination Addict

“We are Kelly and Adam aka Destination Addict – we live in our campervan full-time, working & adventuring from wherever we choose. We believe in living life on our terms or as we like to say ‘dancing to the rhythm of our own souls’. We have created a life for ourselves that we don’t wish to escape from & want nothing more than to help & inspire others do that too!”

Find out a little more about Kelly and Adam below.

 

How did you get into your line of work?

We started blogging as a hobby, mainly to keep our family and friends up-to-date with our adventures. As our blog has grown, we have grown with it… We now have two businesses that run alongside Destination Addict – which all run harmoniously together!

 

What is one of your proudest blogging/YouTube moments?

For us, it’s all about inspiring others so when people share their feeling of being inspired by us, that’s when we feel the most proud! We once had a message from someone sipping a cocktail in a coconut hammock…. “Guys, I made it to Vietnam! Having the best time. Thanks for the advice & convincing me to come!” Enriching someone’s life in this way is why we do what we do!

 

How do you get into the creative flow?

Most of our creative ideas come when we spend time in nature. When we are out hiking we often mentally brainstorm new ideas – for us less distraction is key to creativity, so, when getting into the creative flow we are always mindful of distractions.

 

Which YouTuber or blogger would you like to switch places with for a day?

Alesha & Jarryd from Nomadasaurus because they are super cool peeps! We’ve been connected with them from the very start of our blogging career & love what they do – their choice of adventure destinations and photography especially!

 

What is one thing you wish you had had or known when you first started out?

SEO (Search Engine Optimization), when we started we honestly didn’t have a clue! We are now working on it but sometimes kick ourselves at not getting SEO savvy a lot sooner… We are so grateful for Gemma & Laura at Make Traffic Happen for this reason!

 

Why should people buy a ticket to BLL?

To be inspired, to meet awesome and like-minded people, to learn, to grow, to create more opportunities for themselves and their business and to have an overall incredible time!
