LUXE sits down with travel duo Hannah and Nick who travel the world sharing their experiences and inspiring others with their sustainable guides and travel tips.
How did you get to where you are today?
It's a long story, but we started sharing our travel experiences on our Instagram @saltinourhair. From that, we received so many questions that we started writing down all of our travel tips on our website so we would share the articles instead. Now, 5 years later, we've grown Salt in our Hair into a full-service travel content creation company working with companies to promote destinations all over the world.
Name your favorite country you've traveled to and tell us why?
This is simply not possible to answer. Every country is so unique!
I will pick one of our recent new favorites, and that is Colombia! It is extremely diverse, from the desert, cities, and jungle to the beaches. Highly recommend having a look in our Colombia guides for some inspiration.
List the top 3 countries on your bucket list and why?- Guatemala
We've been wanting to discover all the colorful streets and nature spots in the country for so long.- Azores
It's Europe but completely different from everything we know about Europe. Haven't found the right opportunity to get to the islands!- Croatia
I mean, Google it; why wouldn't it be?!
What is your most favourite and least favourite part of your job?
Meeting people along the way, either locals or travelers, who stay friends forever. That's the best part!
Our least favorite is that work can go on 24 hours, 7 days a week. Luckily, we were able to setup a team that helps us managing everything we do at Salt in our Hair.
If you could pick a celebrity to travel with, who would it be and tell us why?
It would be David Attenborough - he's done an impressive amount of traveling and has great knowledge and an even better perspective on the world. I'd love to take on his mindset and spread his drive to change the world.
Without giving away too much, what does your daily work routine look like?
There are two routines; the first one is while traveling. We mostly work in the afternoons for about 3/4 days a week.
When we're not travelling for some weeks (either, we're at home or working somewhere around the world) we basically work 6/7 days a week from 8 AM - 4 PM
Tell us why you love what you do.
Freedom and making an impact. Working whenever and wherever we want, doing the things we love is the best. And now that our platforms are pretty big, we're able to make an impact with our sustainable guides (like wildlife tourism, or plastic-free products)
Do you have any exciting trips coming up and could you tell us more?
We're currently in Thailand and doing some pretty unique trips in the northern part, where not that many tourists go. After that, we'll be spending some time in Indonesia!
