“In a cyber world filled with ‘travel bloggers’, Paul is the definition of the kind and A LuxuryTravel Blog has become a destination itself for discerned travelers. I worked with Paulalready from my previous engagement with elounda s.a. Hotels & Resorts and I had nohesitation to ask him to be literally the first one to cross the doorstep of Elounda Solfez Villas,my current project, and review it.It was not just the fact that he would bring followers and potential guests to us, but mostlybecause his experience would be an evaluation of the work we have done so far and hishonesty would guide us to further improve the villas if needed. A small sample of thedynamics of ALTB is that when Paul posted a contest we were running with Solfez, wehad over 600 participants within the first two days. In times that e-marketing dollars areunder the microscope and words are becoming a ‘content marketing automation’, Paul andALTB are a beacon, built with trust, respect and honesty, and most importantly results.”Nikolas Lygeros,E-Marketing & Sales Manager for Elounda Solfez Villas

“I have visited thousands of travel blogs and travel sites since I started my own travel site in 1996. Many of the blogs are focused on budget to mid range travel experiences.

The site is an invaluable resource for researching luxury hotels,restaurants and experiences. Paul has built up invaluable content and is a prolific user of social media; this is a site that gets some serious traffic!” Dave Thompson, Founder of Dave’s Travel Corner
