Find Out How You Can Work With Us At Chasing The Donkey: Balkans And Croatia Travel Blog
Chasing the Donkey is your best guide for travel to the Balkans, Croatia & beyond. I am SJ Begonja, and, together with my husband and two sons, we’ve spent the last five years exploring Croatia & the Balkans from our home on the Dalmatian Coast.
We have backgrounds in marketing & project management. Along for the ride is our sidekick ‘Donkimir,’ the travel-loving donkey. Together we discover & share the best of Balkan travel, food, & culture.
- Our travel blog has been read more than 13.5 million times by over 6.5 million people.
- We have over 1 million monthly viewers on Pinterest with a collective community of over 150,000 social media followers
- This blog is recommended in the ‘Useful Links’ section of the ‘Lonely Planet’ guidebook
- Chasing the Donkey is regularly featured as travel leaders in publications, plus we have received numerous awards including making the World’s Top 50 Travel Blogs list for the last three years (measured by traffic)
We’ve worked together with dozens of companies & tourist boards to help them achieve their advertising & marketing goals – we can help you too.
We leverage our site’s authority & expertise to promote your brand. Our readers trust our recommendations plus they look to us for expert advice, making us very influential.
Our biggest point of interest is we share stories about our life living in Croatia – which is what makes us real & relatable.
Since 2013 we have had over 7 million unique users read our travel blog – consuming more than 14 million page hits (as of October 2019)! We are beyond proud.
This blog has been years of hard work and 99% of our travels are funded from my own pocket. I am BEYOND thankful that each day you all read and follow along and thanks to the very few tourist boards and sponsors who have supported us during that time.
