Welcome! Thank you for your interest in Hopscotch the Globe. My name is Kristen Sarah, and I am the owner of this multi-award winning site.
Hopscotch the Globe is all about meaningful adventure travel and making life changing experiences. It is the first choice travel video blog in this vastly growing and changing travel blogging industry. If you are looking for entertaining stories, exceptional videos, excellent photography and engaging real-time social media coverage, this is exactly the right place to be. I receive countless emails from people from around the world who have said that this site has been the inspiration in their life that has motivated them to pursue their travel dreams. Travel is my passion. Sharing my passion with others and inspiring them to travel is a dream come true using this site is something I plan on doing for many years to come.
If you’re interested in reaching out to a broad base of independent travellers, travel bloggers, gap year students, and anyone looking for travel tips and products, then you have come to right place. I would love to learn more about your company/project and to discuss ways we can work together in a mutually beneficial relationship. I am available for sponsorships, partnerships, product coverage and press trips.
Why Should You Work With Kristen
Kristen started her award-winning blog in 2009 and since then has become a big influencer in the travel community. What started off as a hobby, quickly turned into a full-time career. She has created a very loyal worldwide following of travel enthusiasts who depend on her for advice, tips, recommendations, reviews, inspiration, motivation and entertainment.
Along with being a blogger and travel videographer, Kristen is an actress, television host and YouTuber. Through her blog and self- produced videos, Kristen has attracted the attention of several national and international television networks along with well known brands, companies and tourism boards eager to work with her. Some of her most recent projects over the last year include: Zone Correspondent for YTV, Skype’s Red Carpet Interviewer at the 2014 Spirit Awards, Host for Flight Centre Canada Travel Tips & Advice series, Host for Travel and Escape’s Warm Up to Winter series and Host for Fixit Chicks Pilot produced by Mike Holmes. Kristen was also recently a guest on Canada’s very popular day-time show The Social for a segment on Successful Bloggers.
One of her favourite parts of being a travel influencer are the daily emails and comments she receives from people of all ages around the globe: “There is nothing better than being told you are an inspiration and have helped change peoples lives and encouraged them to pursue their travel dreams.”
I have worked with some of the world’s top companies & destinations to help them achieve their goals. They leverage my authority and expertise to promote their services and brand. My audience trusts my recommendations and feel inspired by my experiences. Here are just some of the brands and destinations I’ve worked with:
