    As a freelancer, I work as a travel guide writer, although even other contents are not strange to me. Besides writing travel guides and articles, I run a blog and create content for a website that represents a country that is popular as a tourist destination. In last two years I've created guides with a special attention on top attractions, what travelers should be aware of, best times for a visit and other relevant information (transportation, local customs, fares and currencies, etc.). I'm also interested in history and culture. I am accurate, hardworking, always pay attention to detail and go straight to the point. I have graduated at the College of Tourism in Belgrade, Serbia.

    Travel Writing Specialist

    India - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 6

    There are writers who take to freelance writing as a way to exile themselves from the constant train of thoughts. And then, there are writers who take to freelance writing because they know how to get the job done. I would like to think of myself as an extremely proactive and dynamic writer who has an experience of 3 years writing about everything from SEO articles and travel reports to skin care tips and lifestyle guides. I love watching and playing sports, reading books and listening to music; but as they say, a writer is never on a holiday. He is either writing or thinking about what to write next!
