We Get to Know Travel

We Get to Know is a media company specializing in podcast creation, original & shared content, and short form interviews. We are interviewing your favorite creatives, innovators, business owners, influencers and bloggers from a variety of industries.

For years we have all been following some of the most inspiring people through various creative mediums and our social media platforms. We are looking to connect and be inspired. We try new recipes, we look for style inspirations, or maybe even design an entirely new kitchen on ideas we see and share through these cultivators. These ideas are what sparked the inspiration for We Get to Know.

Have you ever craved knowing just a little bit more about their personal stories and favorite things? We can answer that question with a definitive YES. To satisfy this craving we have launched two podcasts, We Get to Know and We Get to Know: Eat+Well, both of which feature guests who inspire. On We Get to Know, we chat with your favorite people and influencers from a variety of fields including design, travel, fashion, entertainment, comedy etc. Then, on We Get to Know: Eat+Well we focus specifically on the exploding health food and wellness scene.

Our newest project is a short form interview series called, 13 Questions by We Get to Know, featuring creatives, artist and interesting people that indulge our curiosity and chat about their upcoming projects.

We will be tossing an array of questions to our guests in a unique, energetic and entertaining Q&A format. We are excited to share their conversations and answers with all of you.

We welcome your feedback, guest ideas and listener questions for our guest.

    Alizah Akiko: Spark of Wanderlust - Stepping Out in Boldness for a Life you Want, Working with Brands

    Get to Know Alizah Akiko from Spark of Wanderlust.

    Alizah had no intention of becoming a travel influencer when she graduated college but knew she didn’t want to settle down quite yet. She decided to take her first trip to SE Asia instead of getting a “real job,” making no initial plans to create a career out of traveling. However, that’s exactly what unfolded as she developed a love for photography and shared her adventures with others, amassing over 150K followers in the span of two years. She’s worked with companies like AirBnB, The Four Seasons, American Express and Samsung to name a few through beautifully sponsored content. Her travel blog sparkofwanderlust.com is a fantastic resource for travel itineraries, choosing hotels, and style tips. Her hopes are to see every part of the world and is slowly making that happen while she continues to develop her online business ventures. We thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Alizah and hearing her story.

    Pip Marffy: Wander Pip. Explorer, Traveler and Wanderer

    Get to Know travel blogger Pip Marffy of Wander Pip.

    It was a joy to speak with Pip Marffy. She's a Zimbabwean born New Zealander who now lives in London but feels fully at home all over the world. In an effort to improve herself (writing, cooking, photograpghy, traveling...), she started her blog WanderPip.com despite her trepidations of putting so much of herself out there. We are glad she did. Her photography is incredibly beautiful and inspiring as well as her stories, travel tips, and recipes. We especially enjoy her bend towards slightly more rugged/earthy travel and living like the locals. She's 25 and still figuring out exactly what she wants to be when she grows up but completely cool with that. We loved her warm authenticity as she shared her love of the world, her friends, family, good food and flights that take her to fascinating places. Listen in as we get to know Pip.
