We made it into the finals of this year’s MAD Blog Awards! And we’re in shock. We’re told that more than 5,000 blogs were nominated and 154,000 votes cast across the 12 categories. There are only six finalists in each category and the globetotting blog is one of the final six in the Family Travel category.

Of course we would not have made it without the help of all of you who voted for us. We would like to thank each and every person who made the effort to click through to the voting form and for giving globetotting this incredible opportunity.

We would ideally like to end this post here, but there is one last favour we must ask …




MAD finalist


The final round is also based on the number of votes earned and I’m afraid the first votes don’t count. As we’ve come this far, we beg urge you to please click through ONE. MORE. TIME to cast your final vote.

It’s very simple and should take no more than a few seconds. Just select ‘globetotting’ from the drop down menu under Best Family Travel Blog and click on Submit!

Voting deadline: 26 June 2015.

Why do we deserve your vote? In addition to the reasons we listed here, we believe that travel blogging these days is about sharing experiences via a range of multimedia such as videos, slideshows, maps and more. This recent post on Peru is an example of the direction in which we are taking our blog. If you like what we do and where we are heading, please spare us a few seconds to cast your vote. It will mean a lot to us.




Thank you!

Katja & Victoria
