Background: Betsy and Pete are full-time travelers who have visited over 30 countries in the past two years. Their blog, PassingThru, takes readers to wonderful places they might not have considered, and in turn, their own horizons expand.
Midwesterners who each have more than 30 years of business experience, their backgrounds include marketing, B-to-B sales, entrepreneurship, and corporate management in both for- and non-profit sectors.
Travel ethos: Betsy and Pete tend to wander off the path, down the side streets, to the secondary cities and countries of the world. As cafe, restaurant and pub crawlers, they look for everyday people living their lives, as well as cultural and historical context.
Interests: Betsy and Pete can be curious about almost anything, but history generally is the bait. Its influence on daily life reels them in. Their story-telling style is to zoom out a bit for context and then vignette the magical moments.
Experience: Press Trips with Allegiant Air/Visit Las Vegas, Patronat de Turisme Costa Brava, Tourism Authority of Thailand. Pete and Betsy are also part of the team of Deep Travelers at Context Travel.
Publishing: Betsy and Pete have been quoted in articles which have appeared in: Forbes, Yahoo Travel, Next Avenue, MarketWatch, The Trusted Traveller, and Credit Walk Canada. Passing Thru has been featured by Airline Miles Experts, Expat Chat Podcast, and Success Harbor.
