Albom Adventures Media Kit
We represent young baby boomers – some call us Generation J – the leaders of today. Our readers are successful, affluent, savvy travellers seeking adventure, excitement, comfort, and affordability. They turn to us for experience and recommendations, as they know we give honest, firsthand advice. We are available to discuss mutually beneficial opportunities with brands that will appeal to our readers.
We are Rhonda and Jeff Albom. American born, we have lived and travelled in New Zealand (and the world) for the past 17 years, visiting 65 countries on six continents. Rhonda’s background includes journalism at the University of Missouri, a BS from the University of Illinois, and an MBA from Loyola University, Chicago. She is the primary author and landscape photographer at our rapidly growing travel blog Albom Adventures.
Jeff is a rocket scientist with multiple degrees from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He is our food, macro, and underwater photographer, as well as our in-house graphic artist. In addition, Jeff is our research and technical expert.
We are members of the International Travel Writers Alliance and International Association of Press Photographers. Rhonda is a Lonely Planet Pathfinder, was one of the travel writers on MasterCard’s Priceless campaign, and the author of the Auckland edition of the Choose-A-Way series.

What we can do for you:
Let us create awareness and generate excitement for your travel-related services or products.
We do this by visiting, experiencing, and photographing your strengths. We bring this to our readers through our feature articles and social media. Our reviews include our professional photography, which can be available for your use.
We review accommodations, restaurants, attractions, activities, tours, classes, products, and anything else that might be of use to our readers. We are available for single visits or press trips.
Our reviews offer our honest opinions and our unique stories. Our integrity is our strength and the reason our readers trust us. In addition to our blog, we share our experiences in real-time, before, and after our visit on our extensive social media. Where appropriate, we host giveaways of products that we have reviewed.
