Industry Insider Industry Industry Insider  |  Awards  |  Reimagining Travel Reviews. After being approached by the team at, today I decided to join and become a regular contributor. Hours after joining this cool site, I was upgraded and awarded as an Industry Insider, in recognition for my background and years reviewing the world of luxury travel, hospitality and lifestyle.


…Hi Carlos,
Recently discovered your site on a recommendation from an exercise freak friend. Love what I read. Always great to find new people who are passionate about travel and have a discerning eye for quality. I wonder whether you’ve heard of the new site I helped launch, Triptease? We’re giving travel reviews a fresh lick of paint. I noticed on Twitter that you were recently at Hotel Americano? I was wondering whether you’d leave a short review on Triptease?…


Still learning how to use it, the points and total affection, but I am quite drawn to the look and feel, and the way they present and feature the articles. Also within the few hours I have been part of it, I have already made interesting connections and read great articles on my upcoming destinations. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
