Gabriella from @gabriellawisdom shares her experience of the Bali retreat in October 2018! Also make sure to check out her Pangea Dreams Bali Packing Guide too!
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO JOIN US ON A RETREAT? WHAT EXCITED YOU MOST ABOUT THE RETREAT?
I felt misunderstood as a travel blogger and I hoped that by going on a Pangea Dreams retreat that I would become part of a strong female travel community that celebrates being individual, the love of travel, and the desire to make and share amazing creative content.
WHAT TOP 3 THINGS DID YOU LEARN WHILE ON THE RETREAT?
The importance of Pinterest
Poses that hide our insecurities
How to incorporate SEO into my blog
HOW DID YOUR LIFE CHANGE AFTER THE RETREAT?
I now have a big circle of like-minded travel obsessed friends who I speak to daily and plan to see next year.
WHAT WAS A HIGHLIGHT FROM YOUR TRIP?
The friends I have made from the retreat. We made our own group chat before the retreat even started and I don’t think a day has gone by where someone hasn’t been chatting on there. We have created a strong network between us and I am so grateful for that.
DID PANGEA DREAMS SET YOU UP FOR SUCCESS? WHAT SKILLS DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE RETREAT?
I actually came away with so many skills and tips that I could apply to my work across the board. I learnt ways to increase my engagement on social media, how to improve my blog, how to stay true to myself when I’m in front of the camera, techniques for behind the camera, and so much more.
WHICH WORKSHOP WAS YOUR FAVORITE AND WHY?
Lauren’s Blog SEO 101 and Pinterest workshops were my favorite because I came away with so much information and so many steps for growing my audience.
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAY TO GIRLS CONSIDERING JOINING A RETREAT?
If you are stuck on how to proceed with your career as a travel blogger then this is the right retreat for you. You will be surrounded by people who want you to succeed and will help you do just that.
