Whether you’re celebrating your honeymoon or you’ve been with your sweetie for decades, it’s fun to travel with the one you love. There’s nothing better than a romantic stroll on the beach or a leisurely dinner at sunset. But even if your travels aren’t all romantic moments, these shared experiences can still strengthen your bond. Travel is the perfect way to reconnect and enjoy each other’s company.
“Look ahead,” says Captain Julie. “We might be coming up on a small pod of belugas.”We’re in Quebec on a yellow zodiac, zooming across the St. Lawrence River in search of whales with Croisières AML. Captain Julie has taken us into the heart of the Saguenay-St Lawrence Marine Park, a protected region so rich with whales that marine researchers come here from around the world. Sure enough, six beluga whales appear up ahead, their white backs reflecting in the Quebec sunshine as they surface.
Imagine lying in your sleeping bag, listening to the sound of waves, knowing the ocean is a few hundred yards from your “bedroom.” Wild ponies walk by your campsite at breakfast while seagulls cry out for your leftovers. After eating, you leave your beach-side kitchen, take your beach chair, gather up the kids and walk the short distance to sit by the ocean. This is beach camping at Assateague Island, Maryland.But as idyllic as this sounds, beach camping can be a challenge.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
