Jen and Guy, who spent 15 years in entertainment advertising, turned their passion for adventure vacations to a blog dedicated to adventure travel called The Evolista. This made sense, as these two had traveled to over 40 countries and 50 states.

Travel is about experiencing bucket list items, such as riding camels through the Sahara or walking the Great Wall of China. They love to meet interesting people and want to see as much of the world as possible. They’re more likely to be found catching the sunrise in the Wadi-Rum desert or talking to people who do not speak their native language than by an all-inclusive beach hotel pool.

They want to capture the feel of an experience so that readers can imagine themselves in different locations. Guy captures the moment, and Jen is the explorer.

Guy, who has no previous photography experience and is in a world of professional photographers with whom he competes, keeps trying to improve his photographic skills. This has included a drone crash and, more than they would like to admit waking up at the crack of daybreak to get that perfect shot.

Travel the World

In 2012, after traveling the globe, studying, volunteering, and working, the Galician couple Inma and Jose Martinez created the visually stunning sustainable lifestyle and travel website A World to Travel to share their passion for festivals, unique events, nature, and responsible tourism.

Since its inception, photography has been a significant focus. Landscape, music festivals or architecture, and even portraiture for special projects such as his series “Humans in Indonesia,” their images are colorful and vivid, except in rare cases when they’re in black and White. They bring to life an enjoyable world where the human body is usually just there to give scale to the surrounding environment, which deserves more prominence. This is a good idea if “tiny people living in large places” appeals to you.

The BBC, National Geographic, and Lonely Planet are just a few of the many media outlets that have featured them. They also collaborate regularly with other travel publications. A World to Travel was recently named the best travel blog in Spain.
