Loc@s x los viajes is a Spanish blog about travel and tourism in family. Istanbul was our first destination together and since then we have visited 28 countries on 4 continents. Since 2013 we travel with our daughter.
Our blog was born in October 2009 as a travel diary where we wrote about the places we visited. But little by little the blog has been changed and nowadays, we write practical information about the places visited, as well as hotels reviews and other comments about how to organize a trip for free to the destinations.
Our travel philosophy is to organize ourselves the trips, and thanks to Internet, it is perfectly possible. We don’t like organized trips and we prefer travel for free. In this blog we tell in detail how to do it.
Since January 2013 we have a new member: our little daughter Iris. Now our blog has evolved from being a blog of a couple to a travel blog with a young kid. In fact, we have two sections in which we explain and give advice about travel with a baby and travel with children.
Loc @ s x travel is also a founding member of the Globellers association.
In the year 2016, we had more than 372,000 visits and more than 571,000 page views. 19.6% of our readers return to the blog to find information for their travels.
By age, most of our readers are between the ages of 25 and 44, and by sex, 69% are women, while 31% are men.
As for their origin, most of our readers are from Spain (73.63%), although we also have many readers from Argentina (7.20%) and United States (2.74%), as well as other European countries such as Germany, United Kingdom, Holland and France, and Spanish-speaking countries such as Mexico, Chile and Colombia.
