Work With Me

Hi I’m Gordon, of Short Holidays and Getaways. Also found on Contented Traveller, which I run with my wife Paula McInerney. 

I started Short Holidays and Getaways last year, with the help of Paula, after many of the readers of Contented Traveller asked for weekend getaways, stop over ideas, and short holidays ideas.

For some people the journey is more important then the destination. A ride, drive,walk or sail through incredible scenery can be more important then the place you eat or sleep!

So, Short Holidays and Getaways is geared toward people who work hard, and dream about weekends, or for people who just have a few days in a place and need some ideas of what to see and do.

There are great bars and clubs, and terrible Abba renditions.

Short Holidays and Getaways is more of a  matter of fact travel blog. Readers know that they can just pick a weekend getaway and follow it without having to worry about all of the planning.

Short Holidays and Getaways features ideas and itineraries from all around the world. Short Holidays and Getaways’ primary topics include 48-hour itineraries to both city and remote destinations, hotel reviews, adventure travel, budget travel, backpacking, food and wine, and experiences that we know that people want.


Why work with travel bloggers?

Travel bloggers provide immediate content for your destination that is easily searchable on the web, broadcast to a loyal audience, shared exponentially via social media, and easily tailored to your liking.


In an increasingly web-driven world, travellers are turning to web-created content, and blogs are becoming a more prominent part of that space. Most top tier travel bloggers have cultivated strong credibility, resulting in a trusting and loyal audience, as our main award winning site Contented Traveller has done.
