Google Analitycs says that in the last month the blog received 53.000 pageviews.
On my 6 social networks I’ve got about 25.000 followers.
The Greta Escape’s reports are addressed to those people who are fond of travels and, in a particular manner, to those who, like us, love to organize a custom-made route.
We always try to face each tour and to reach each destination in the best way, as it’s impossible to visit all the countries in the same manner.
To us, it’s important to taste the real way of life of the places we see, using public means if it’s possible or renting cars and motorbikes.
We approach all experiences features of a place (such as the downhillon the Carretera de la Muerte in Bolivia, climb the Wayna Picchu in Perù, rafting in Slovenia, night skiing in the Dolomites, race in a hot air balloon at the International rally of Mondovì, airboat, dogsledding in Lapland, jetski, snowmobile at night, zip line, parachuting…)
We always eat typical food and we don’t forget to have a look at local shops and markets.
