Yes, we would love to have you as a guest author

About this website

Travel Hippi was created at the time we sold everything, adopted a minimalist lifestyle and begun the search for our paradise. It is a resource and inspirational site, with the strapline retire early … in spanish america

About our audience

Our strapline should give you a good idea of our audience.

One segment of our audience includes people that are thinking about, or actively planning early retirement. This age group is roughly between 35 and 55 years of age.

Work with Us

Another segment includes people who are close to retirement and who are actively researching suitable destinations in Spanish America. This group is slightly older with an average age of about 55.

Yet another segment represents people who enjoy a minimalist and financially independent lifestyle, with a love for travel. This group’s age range is between 30 and 60 years.

In summary: the three overlapping segments represent a mature audience with a prudent financial approach, valuing experience and happiness more than possessions.

What subject matter are we looking for?

Canonical articles need to complement one or more of the following categories:

  • Retire Early
  • Minimalism
  • Retire in Spanish America
  • Advantages of and/or lessons learnt by living abroad
  • Travel stories from Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile or Paraguay
