Foodie & Traveler, the platform specialized in merging the passion for food and travel, celebrates its seventh anniversary with a focus on renewal and expansion. Director and editor, Juan de Dios Valentín, gathered collaborators and followers for a memorable picnic in the picturesque Las Praderas park, marking the beginning of a series of changes and enriching experiences.
The digital platform, which encompasses a web portal, social networks, podcast and now a YouTube channel, has embarked on a comprehensive transformation to take its followers beyond conventional boundaries. New features include a revamped web platform that is more agile, user-friendly and accessible from any mobile device or PC.
One of Foodie & Traveler’s hallmarks is its commitment to local support. The “Local Support” segment remains an essential pillar, offering interviews and inspiring stories from entrepreneurs and chefs through its platforms and social networks. In addition, the fifth season of the popular “Destinos y Sabores” podcast offers impactful episodes, such as tips for effective vacationing, strategies to combat jet lag and recommendations for a perfect vacation.
The big surprise comes with the launch of the Foodie & Traveler YouTube channel, which promises to take the visual and culinary experience to new heights. With fresh, engaging and innovative content, the channel seeks to captivate a wider audience with the platform’s foodie and travel adventures.
Foodie & Traveler’s success in the last year is indisputable, having participated in events of international caliber such as FITUR and Madrid Fusion. They also stand out for their gastronomic research and were nominated for the prestigious “Open Passport” award, organized by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).
Juan de Dios Valentín expressed his deep gratitude to the readers, followers and subscribers who have supported his vision. “We have received support from all corners of the globe, which shows that our work does not go unnoticed,” Valentín said enthusiastically. He also thanked his professional team and close collaborators who have backed every step of Foodie & Traveler.
Valentín emphasized that the Dominican Republic is at an optimal time for tourism and hospitality, and that Foodie & Traveler strives to stay at the forefront of the industry through quality content and exceptional experiences.
The future of Foodie & Traveler promises even more excitement, with changes to the website design and logo.
