Collaborate with Travels with Tam

Let’s Collaborate

Hi, I’m Tam Warner Minton! I’m an empty nester, mom to two grown children, and I’m even a grandma now! As an #over50 traveler, diver, destination expert, and explorer with endless curiosity, I have quite a lot to offer you.

I travel the way I live, by experiencing new things, new ideas, new places, new cultures and new people.

I believe in getting out of my comfort zone! I encourage others to do the same.

I inspire others to get out and see the world, to expand their knowledge and enlarge their perspective. I want my audience to be breathless with excitement, and overwhelmed by sights and sounds!

I believe we can travel and “do good” for ourselves, others and our planet at the same time!

I want to continue to see and experience a broad range of travel, from Scuba Diving trips to Luxury Vacations, from Eco Camping to Cruises, from Wildlife Travel to Citizen Science…. I don’t have a particular niche, I’m open to experiencing it all!

Check me out on https://influence.co/travelswithtam

I’m up for Solo Travel, Small Group Travel, Family Travel, Multi-generational Travel, Couple Travel, Adventure Travel, Wildlife Travel, Luxury Travel and Dive Travel! You name it, I’m up for it.

Whether you are a sponsor, brand, public relations firm, destination, or advertiser I will represent you with enthusiasm and expertise, and would be happy to represent your product or destination on my blog.  I love to travel, review hotels, dive, perform volunteer tourism and citizen science, eat fabulous food, and rave about products I love. My writing also includes stories of empty nest renewal, overcoming obstacles, and how traveling solo can benefit your life. Photography plays a key role in all of my blog posts, and I have won and participated in photography contests.
