Hello hello hello! Sorry things have been a bit quiet on the blogger front, I’ve been traveling a bit in Asia for the past two weeks which meant, dun dun dun, universally terrible internet and no time for anything on my laptop. If you follow me on Instagram, you can keep up with my adventures in (mostly) real time.
That being said, this past year I’ve decided that I really love doing giveaways and it’s high time for another one!
**Update – thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations to Joe from Florida for winning! IF you’d like to learn more about my camera bag, I wrote a whole post on it!
A year ago I gave away an ONA camera bag, the Brooklyn satchel that’s accompanied me everywhere since early 2013 when I quit my job to travel. This bag was my birthday gift to myself and the start of my journey around the world and a career in creating things on the internet. It’s been with me from Asia to Europe to New Zealand and beyond and it’s my favorite go-to bag and I use it as a purse.
But a few months ago I upgraded to a Camps Bay backpack since a messenger bag couldn’t quite keep up with all of my outdoorsy New Zealand adventures and hikes, and I couldn’t be happier. I use this on my road trips and on my day walks and hikes in the woods, and when I need to carry my bulky laptop around with me and it fits ALL of my camera gear. All of it!
I’ve got the best of both worlds. Don’t hate me!
Now I can cart around all of my camera equipment and laptop with me in an adorable backpack that doesn’t look like it carries all of the most valuable things I own, something important to me as a traveler.
I love the stylish look of ONA bags and I’ve been a fan of them for years.
So now that I’ve upgraded my kit, I’ve decided you all deserve a backpack too, so I am giving away a Bolton Street backpack!
I love ONA and I’m stoked to share them with you all again.
This time I’m around for entries it’s a lot of social sharing and following, the details are in the box below. Also please leave me a comment and tell me where you dream of taking your ONA bag one day.
But this time I am asking for something a little extra.
In addition to spreading the love, I need a big favor from you guys. I’m doing a reader survey. Dun dun dun.
I’ve been blogging here on Young Adventuress for almost 5 years, holy crap! I never believed I could commit to something for so long and I could have never imagined where my little blog would take me.
I’m trying to decide what direction I want my blog to head in the future and I really value your input above everything else. I have an idea from what you all have thrown at me via email, FB, twitter and all other forms of digital communication but I am hoping to put it all together in one place.
So I’ve cobbled together my first ever reader survey to try and figure out some boring stats as well as what you all think about my blog and you know, other stuff.
I am actually quite scared which is another reason it took four years for me to finally get my act together and do this, so um, try not to make me cry please. You know I get a lot of hate comments so at least try to soften the blows please.
I do really care about what you all think, and I know I need to improve my blog a lot and I really want your opinions and ideas.
Please fill out the survey here!
