WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO JOIN US ON A RETREAT? WHAT EXCITED YOU MOST ABOUT THE RETREAT?

I had just started my blog and didn’t really know where to go from there. I had 180 followers on Instagram and felt like I could offer more to others who wanted to travel like me. So I found the Pangea Dreams IG page and decided to submit an application! What did I have to lose?

WHAT TOP 3 THINGS DID YOU LEARN WHILE ON THE RETREAT?

  1. How to shoot photos in manual mode!

  2. How to increase traffic to my blog using Pinterest

  3. And how tweaking my blog titles and subheadings could increase SEO

HOW DID YOUR LIFE CHANGE AFTER THE RETREAT?

I felt so empowered when I got home I would sit in front of my laptop for hours using everything I just learned from the retreat. I finally launched my blog publicly and saw an increase in Instagram engagement.

WHAT WAS A HIGHLIGHT FROM YOUR TRIP?

I met SO many amazing women who I can now call friends and have a ton of pending trips around the world to meet up with some of them :)

WHICH WORKSHOP WAS YOUR FAVORITE AND WHY?

Lauren’s blogging workshops were my absolute favorite! They were so eye opening, I didn’t realize how much more involved blogging was than just writing your thoughts and adding photos.

IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAY TO GIRLS CONSIDERING JOINING A RETREAT?

If any single aspect of the Pangea Dreams retreat appeals to you, apply now! What do you have to lose? You will gain so much valuable information and the connections you’ll make are endless!
