Feedback from past collaborations and from readers
Cooperation with Kami has been smooth and professional. She enjoyed the itinerary in our city that we put together and it really shines through in her post. She didn’t forget to mention any partner and covered all sights and attractions in detail. We were pleased with her photography and received great feedback on the work she’s done. Kami also served us as a great link to other Polish travel bloggers, which is an invaluable asset. We can recommend working with Kami to any brand.

Love the blog!! It has definitely opened up so many options of travel that I never would have thought about before.
Working with Kamila is always a pleasure. She’s one of those “low maintenance / high – results” bloggers.
Her articles are well researched (she consults internet & books as well as she seeks local knowledge).
It sets her in a high contrast with a “selfie here and there” influencers who points out five main attractions in the city that everyone knows already.
She does a proper journalist/writers work in a sense. She has the preparation of Lonely Planet editors and a knack for writing articles which you will find exciting to read.
Kamila is well aware of her niche audience which looks for alternative destinations and experiences and doesn’t mind to occasionally dive into more complex stories from the history of places & communities.
We cooperated on miniguides for Holesovice neighbourhood in Prague and the city of Olomouc, both in the Czech Republic.
Articles include information about transportation, spots for eating, shopping, sightseeing, relaxing and sleeping and more. Our hostels and hotels came out as a natural choice for the traveller.
Kamila has her angle and values which are transformed not only in her writing but also into the choice of her partnerships.
She would not recommend another generic tour or hotel experience, but if you have something interesting to offer, deliver your customer service in high quality and care about social responsibility, the chances are that you can get a shout out. That’s important for us because we want to be in that company, as well as for her readers who can trust the recommendations.
Her audience is highly relevant to us and texts which are complemented by high-quality photos are highly suitable for the readers. You can see that on the number of comments and engagement both directly in the comments section of the website and social media.
Her job is not done when the article is published. She patiently replies to all the questions that her readers have, and usually, there are many.
All that combined lead to a high ranking of Kamila’s articles on Google which secure constant traffic to our websites which are to a certain extent transformed to direct bookings.
Long story short, Kamila sets an example for others in the industry, and I can only recommend working with her.

have just started reading your posts and absolutely love hearing about your life! You are honest and forthright and call it as it is is! What you see is what “we” get! So inspirational. You energise me!
The cooperation with Kamila was very professional, uncomplicated, trusting and was great fun. With her we found an influencer who has discovered Hannover in her own way and conveys her impressions authentically. Her articles are valuable content for us to make Hannover even better known in the Polish market.

Love your posts and humour! Thanks for the inspiration ;-)
Kami is, without a doubt, one of my favorite travel bloggers out there. Her passion for travel is always authentic and her readers can feel it. Her ability to promote a destination through words and photos is so anomalous from others in the industry that it leaves all readers curious and anxious of where she may end up next. She has provided me with travel advice on numerous occasions and I definitely think of her as an accomplished expert in the field of travel. Kami’s ability to connect with readers and inspire them is what truly sets her apart from the rest.

I’ve been following mywanderlust.pl since it’s early days as a blog and over the time I’ve watched it grow into one of my favourite travel sites. I love Kami’s take on the more obscure destinations in Europe, especially her posts on her home country of Poland and the surrounding regions. She’s very interactive with her readers, making it more than a blog, but a community.
