Student Travel Writers Encourage Each Other to Take the Roads Less Travelled

Students from the School of Arts and Humanities at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) have taken up work placements with Travamigos. The students are writing travel blogs and feature articles sharing their thoughts, ideas and trip-planning tips to make it easier for backpackers following in their footsteps.

Nine students have signed up for the creative writing and video placements following a talk by Travamigos CCO and co-founder Andy Wormington at the NTU Annual Recruitment and Placement Fair.

“We’re delighted with the close relationship we have forged with NTU and so pleased with the results,” says Travamigos CEO James Wormington, who was full of praise for the student articles he has already received.

“Staff and students were looking for closer links with companies providing creative work opportunities and we were looking for views, opinions and guidance from our target audience. It’s a fantastic collaboration, reminding me of a quote by Steve Jobs: ‘Great things in business are never done by one person; they’re done by a team of people.’”

The student articles are published on the inspiration section of the Travamigos blog and the company hopes to forge similar partnerships with other universities in the future. James would love to hear from any students wishing to share their thoughts and travel tips, you can get in touch at: [email protected].

Travamigos is available on the iOS App Store as a free download, an Android version is currently under development.
