Hi there, my name is Anthony Bianco (@thetraveltart) and I’m a travel blogger based in Brisbane who runs The Travel Tart – Offbeat Tales From A Travel Addict and I’m also a member of the Australian Society of Travel Writers.

TheTravelTart.com attracts a global readership across a wide demographic who are interested in travel destinations and experiences around the world – including budget, luxury, offbeat, and adventure travel.

But mainly, I like to write about the funny, offbeat, and downright strange aspects of world travel today – as travel wasn’t meant to be taken seriously!

Who Is The Travel Tart?

Well, I’m a self-proclaimed travel addict who will find any excuse to go travelling. I discovered I really enjoyed travelling the world when I was sent to a former war zone for work – Kosovo – as my first venture outside of Australia and New Zealand.  This created a habit of visiting places that most package tourists avoid like the plague.  I’ve since travelled to over 50 countries over six continents – nowhere near enough! When travelling, I like risking my life by utilising barely road-worthy forms of transport such as African mini-buses, rust bucket Cairo cabs, and flatulent camels.

What I Can Offer

• A proven track record for attracting long term targeted internet traffic that has an indefinite shelf life
• Promotion of your brand via blog traffic and multiple social media platforms, followed up by statistics and reporting to help you measure effectiveness.

Who I’ve Worked With

I’ve worked with high profile travel brands such as Visit Britain, Tourism South Africa, G Adventures, TripAdvisor, Qantas and Emirates. I use photos, videos and social media extensively to ‘show’ the story and attraction. I have also interviewed travel related personalities, such as Rick Stein, Tony Wheeler from Lonely Planet, Simon Reeve and many others.
