A Matter Of Taste – travel with attention to food. A Matter Of Taste is a lifestyle website focused on travel & food. We pride ourselves for sharing useful information without the fluff and for great photography.
Who Are We?
My name is Aga. Born and raised in South-East Poland, lived in Krakow for 4 years before coming to Australia in 2010. At the moment I call Melbourne home.
I’m a content creator: photographer [see agakozmic.com] and writer.
Spending 4 years in art school made me love art, so in most of my trip itineraries I try to incorporate some sort of art appreciation time – either museum, street art walk or visiting local artists.
I drink too much coffee, always carry a camera, have a thing for champagne breakfasts, love alpacas and I usually choose my travel destinations by asking myself the very important question: “what can I eat there?”.
Hubby. Great travel companion, my private driver & photo assistant. Often appears on photos as the hand model but prefers to stay anonymous. Takes care of the backend side of the website and sometimes contributes to the content. Fan of good coffee, private pool villas and well-designed Android apps. Reads terms & conditions in his spare time.
Geographic breakdown: 25% Australia, 19% United States, 9% United Kingdom, 7% Singapore. Strong followings in Japan, Canada, New Zealand, India, Germany and the Philippines as well.
A Matter Of Taste attracts male and female readers of all ages researching world travel. Our most popular articles are detail-focused itineraries.

We are Lyn and David of The Travelling Lindfields. Husband and wife baby boomers in our early 60s (how did that happen!) we spend four months of every year in the skies, on the road or on the water – and we love to share our experiences and insights.
What is our travel style?
We are fiercely independent travellers. If there is a nice hotel in town, look for us there. We will have arrived in our own car and be ready to explore the sights and surrounds at our own pace.
What do we offer our readers?
In more than three decades of exploring the planet together we have become experts at the things which make travel easier. Whether it be arranging flights, booking hotels, finding the best car hire deals or simply knowing where to go, our readers can be confident that every review, tip and suggestion will come from personal experience.
What do we offer you?
We offer access to a loyal and engaged readership, many of whom are themselves frequent travellers. They come predominantly from Australia and the USA and are more likely to be women than men. Although we pitch our blog toward mature, financially independent travellers, we also have a significant readership between the ages of 25 and 34.
Why we are different?
We are financially secure. This allows us to accept sponsored opportunities only when they fit our style. We are very protective of the quality of every blog post and social media update. In addition, because we publish less frequently than other travel bloggers we can give each post the exposure it deserves across our social media channels.
One more thing.
We cycle – not the kind of gruelling, day after day riding so loved by the super fit, but leisurely bicycle touring through pleasant countryside on easy rail trails and cycle paths. Cycle posts are not a large part of our blog but when we publish them they always draw a loyal audience of fellow riders. An example of one of our cycle trail posts can be found at The Great Victorian Rail Trail.
Where can you find us?
You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram as well as at The Travelling Lindfields.
We are Cindy and Simon Collins, a married Australian couple and the creators of the travel blog Free Two Roam. A couple of years ago we decided to start our blog, to share our passion for travel and to inspire others to get out there and see more of the world. So far, we’ve visited
47 countries between us, but our list seems to be never ending!
When we’re not roaming the world, Cindy is a veterinary nurse and Simon works in IT. Our favourite thing to do in our spare time is to plan our next trip, write about our recent ones or talk about the places we’ve visited in the past with friends, colleagues or anyone who will listen.
We get asked a lot why we travel so much. And that’s because we believe that there is nothing better than discovering a new culture, meeting new people, trying new cuisines or learning about a country’s history.
A quote that we live by: Life is not measured by the breaths that we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
What do we both do?
Cindy is the main writer on Free Two Roam, producing comprehensive articles about the places we visit and the experiences we have along the way. She also reviews some of the hotels that we stay at. Cindy is also the principle photographer and social media creator.
Simon is in charge of videography, website design and anything technical.
We are both keen wine drinkers, hikers and snorkelers, and whenever possible during our travels we like to try out the local wine, tackle some great hikes or spend time exploring the marine world. Of course we love to share all these great moments with our readers through our photography, in-depth blog posts and videos.
Who Do We Work With?
We will work with ethical companies who are a good fit with our brand and audience and whose products and services we value.
So far, we have worked with both tourist attractions and accommodation within Australia and internationally.
For example, in the past we’ve worked with:
- Sky Rail Rainforest Cableway
- Queensland Rail Travel
- Inn Singapore
We would love to expand our work within the travel industry, and to help promote more brands, destinations and experiences that we love. We’re always keen to collaborate, so please get in touch with us.
What do we bring to companies that we work with?
We dedicate ourselves to promoting our client’s brands professionally, passionately and enthusiastically, through rich content, great photography and videos.
We share all our stories through detailed and authentic blog posts on “Free Two Roam” and we give the links to our clients to share on their own social media platforms and websites. Cindy spreads these stories on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Bloglovin and StumbleUpon and also to our newsletter subscribers.
