About Savvy Traveling
Hello, my name is Patricia King and I’m a travel writer, blogger, and influencer based in Atlanta, Georgia. I’m the founder of Savvy Traveling, a travel and lifestyle blog created for adults over 50, empty nesters, and active baby boomers. Traveling has always been my passion. I have a graduate degree in journalism and worked as a freelance journalist, writer, and editor after my stint as a newspaper staff reporter. With Savvy Traveling, I write blog posts and use media and social media to guide anyone interested in travel.
In 2011, I started Savvy Traveling to share my travel stories, photographs, and impressions from my trips around the world. I strongly believe that storytelling is the essence of destination marketing. Potential travelers are attracted to the authentic stories of your destination and the real experiences they can have when they visit.
My posts and articles focus on beautiful destinations, culture, arts, and food while expressing my personal opinions about the places I visit, the people I meet, and their traditions. I strive to introduce my readers, particularly those over 50 years old, to unexpected and unique travel experiences that will provide itinerary ideas and inspiration for their future travel plans. I write mostly about North American destinations, solo travel, multigenerational and skip-generation travel, culture, road trips, and fascinating hidden gems.
Visitor and Social Media Statistics
I am a travel writer and nano-influencer with a dedicated and engaged audience. My readers are always eager to discover new travel destinations, whether they are on the other side of the world or just around the corner. On my website and social media platforms, I have amassed over 10,000 followers and viewers, with the majority being North American women aged between 25 to 65 years old.
Affiliations & Awards
I am a founding member and member of the Black Travel Alliance (BTA) board of directors, and a member of the North American Travel Journalists Association (NATJA).
To promote your destination or brand we can work together in several ways:
• Press trips focusing on North American and worldwide destinations, culture, and food. I can provide exposure before, during, and after the press trip, including real-time exposure on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and TikTok. I can also write detailed blog posts about the destination and link back to the businesses that sponsored me.
• Reviews of hotels, restaurants, tours, and other activities. If your business or service would be of interest to my readers I would love to hear from you. Invite me to experience what you have to offer and I will share my experience with my readers.
• Product reviews. If your product may be of interest to my readers and I like it, I want to help get the word out. I can write a detailed review and promote it on all my social media outlets.
Tourist Boards and Brands I Worked With In The Past include Gatlinburg, Tennessee; the King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort, St. Simons Island, GA; Green Bay, Wisconsin, and Quebec City, Canada.
My Published Articles include AAA World Magazine, Boom Magazine, TravelAwaits.com, and Travel Weekly.
