Work with Journal of Nomads


Hello! 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’.


10 years of experience - Everything you need to know about Hitchhiking- Dress nice and smile - Journal of Nomads


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.




How can we work together


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