I think Travel Journalism is a great Career option. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find information about What Travel Journalism actually is. Most pages on the internet just talk about How to get into Travel Journalism. I was Googling about a Career in Travel Journalism and was lucky to find: https://www.lifepage.in/career/20180326-0003/Arts/Writing/Career-in-Travel-Journalism/english

Freya Broos is an experienced professional with 6 years & 11 months in Travel Journalism. Freya Broos has worked in Travel Journalism as Editor in Fragile Freya. In Freya Broos's own words, this is how Freya Broos got into Travel Journalism: "I studied Journalism in Belgium. After venturing into different jobs, I finally realised that my true calling in life was travel and writing. So finally, six years after graduating from university, I went back to Journalism. I am working as an Editor for Fragile Freya where I share my travel experiences with the world." Freya Broos has a profile in a very interesting format on: https://www.lifepage.in/page/freyabroos

They may write for a variety of print or online media and various publications or independently for a blog." The video gave me so much food for thought.
