2012 Round Up – The Occasional Traveller

Seen the round-ups for 2012’s travels and TOTblog? 2012 has been quite an eventful year for The Occasional Traveller, with lots of press and interesting partnerships and projects in the works. Let’s take a look back…



This was something new for 2012 where I worked with a number of cool brands to review/test their products for my readers and other travellers, or just to promote a good cause. If you’re interested to work with The Occasional Traveller in any capacity, check out my advertise page and just drop me a note and I’ll get back to you if I think we’re a good fit!

Micro Scooter Luggage: My first review video, scrappy as it may be but as real as it gets for the Micro Scooter Luggage, a suitcase with a built-in scooter kindly provided by White & Black Trading that I brought to Osaka with me.

Lomography: The good folk at Lomography loaned me a La Sardina camera on my trip to UAE and Munich, and it was fun taking a step back to consider photography from an analogue point of view. See how the pictures turned out!

Passports with Purpose: I took part in PwP for the first time and helped to promote a cause to build wells in Haiti. We surpassed the goal of $10,000 by hitting the $11k mark and congratulations to the winner of the prize I hosted, Janine!
