So who is Biggsy Travels?

I’m Steve Biggs … a travel blogger from Hitchin in Hertfordshire, UK. I try to write only about ‘unique experiences’. Things that nobody has written about before, or better still experiences that nobody has ever had before! They’re written by a 40 something year old ‘Geography and European Studies’ graduate with a mortgage and a full-time job and not by a fresh-faced 22 year old backpacker 🙂

I currently work out of Central London for a global travel company as their digital analyst, but was based in their NYC office for a few months back in 2014. Read a recent interview thanks to the guys at ‘Eat Sleep Love Travel‘ and view my ‘Biggsy Travels’ business page on LinkedIn.

Travel conference appearances

I spoke recently at Traverse Events’ international ‘Traverse 18‘ conference in Rotterdam. Traverse are an outreach and influencer marketing agency who run the largest digital influencer events in the UK. I presented on the considerations for bloggers of using ‘hosted WordPress’ vs “free” WordPress.com for their travel blogs.
