Work with Journal of Nomads!




We are Cynthia and Niko, a Belgian – Canadian backpacking couple and the proud founders and owners of Journal of Nomads.


Before we started this blog, we both had been traveling for many years, gaining all the experience, skills and knowledge to become ‘professional nomads and adventurers’.


Our unique adventures and nomadic lifestyle gained a lot of interest and attention over the years so we created our own brand to provide inspiration and guidance for independent travelers and aspiring nomads.


Journal of Nomads is a travel website focused on slow travel and financially sustainable long-term journeys. We specialize in adventure, outdoor and cultural travels in both popular and less-traveled destinations.


We document our lifestyle with visual stories and we enjoy putting together guides for backpackers and independent travelers interested in culture, adventure, and off-the-beaten-path destinations. We also provide our audience with information on how to travel the world continuously and sustain this nomadic lifestyle for years.





What can we do for you?


We are available for both short and long-term partnerships and offer services in the English and Dutch language.

Why working with us?


We are two talented individuals with each our own specific set of skills in creating and marketing strong and appealing content. We are a creative and hard-working team and we only want to deliver quality. If we go for something, we go all-in!


Journal of Nomads is not an average travel website.

We like to immerse ourselves in different cultures and learn as much as we can about our destinations.


We’re a well-established brand and our audience loves us for the authentic and extremely informative and in-depth guides, stories and videos we publish. Our content is based on first-hand experience and knowledge. We practice what we preach.
