Traveling as a couple can a big test for the relationship. If you can’t vacation well together, it might be a sign for the future. But couple travel can be difficult, especially if partners come from different financial backgrounds. Although it’s much more fun to post sunset photos with #wanderlust underneath than talk about travel privilege, it is is real thing. And navigating that can be difficult on your first trip.
Working while traveling the world might sound like an oxymoron, but for Liz Carlson, it's just good business. Not confined by one medium, the 29-year-old chronicles her escapades on her blog, Young Adventuress, as well as on Instagram and YouTube. However, this pie-in-the-sky career was not always her reality. Building her brand over the course of seven years, Carlson says it's taken loads of work, networking and a little bit of faith to follow her dreams.
It’s New Year’s Eve. Which means it’s time for 2018 resolutions. If you’re anything like me, you have a long list of promises to exercise every day, read more books, never eat sugar and lose 15 pounds. And while I’m all about being aspirational – heck, I write about travel – I figured I should make my 2018 New Year’s Resolutions a bit more attainable this time around. So here are eight resolutions from a panel of travel hackers on how they plan to budget while on the road.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
