Announcing the Launch of the Revised ActiveTravels Website and Blog

Celebrating the Launch of the New ActiveTravels WebsiteHard to believe it was 2009 when I first started this ActiveTravels blog. It was in the wake of the 2008 recession and I had lost more than half the editors I worked with due to cuts and the end of publications like National Geographic Adventure. A writer needs to write, so I created this blog and three years later, Lisa and I would create our travel agency, using the same name, ActiveTravels. However, the old platform for the blog, ExpressionEngine, had become clunky and obsolete. It was time to change to the far more contemporary WordPress. Thanks to the diligent work and inspiration of our beloved website developer, iBec Creative, I’m excited to launch the new and improved ActiveTravels blog! I’m diving in this week, playing around with new fonts, images, and the sense of style, but already it feels far more user-friendly than my old blog platform.

We didn’t just redo the ActiveTravels blog. We’ve updated our entire ActiveTravels website. We’ve revised the Explore New England page to include the specific types of customized itineraries we offer. We’ve added a Resources page where you can sign up for Day Tours, purchase Travel Insurance, organize your luggage to be shipped rather than lug it on the plane, and order Visas and Passports and more. Other pages we’ve updated are our FAQ page, our Travel Questionnaire and our About Us page. Please have a look!
