Dave and Deb of have done it again solidifying their role as one of the most versatile online travel influencers.

Having already won several awards in travel photography, writing and overall best travel blog, they are thrilled to now be recognized in video. The annual Flight Centre UK Travel Blog Awards are open for voting and ThePlanetD is nominated as best travel YouTubers.

“It is a thrill to be nominated for our YouTube channel as travel video content is something we’ve been working hard on over the past year and a half,” says Deb.

ThePlanetD is already considered one of the best travel blogs in the world having won back-to-back Gold Medals in the Society of American Travel Writer’s Lowell Thomas Awards for Best Travel Blog. In 2014 they had stiff competition facing the likes of National Geographic’s Intelligent Traveller blog that place second to the duo.

The married couple has been traveling the world full time since 2009 sharing their adventures on their blog and 2.5 million followers on social media while inspiring people to step out of their comfort zone. They prove that regular people can live an extraordinary life through their motto “Adventure is for everyone.”

“We are not daily vloggers but instead try to create videos that tell a story and give information. It’s the same format as our blog. We want our personalities to shine through while showcasing stunning visuals,” according to Dave.

“We’ve always produced videos, but it wasn’t until 2015 that we put more focus into our channel posting consistently,” adds Deb.

ThePlanetD is not only considered one of the top travel blogs, but also a top travel photography website winning several photography awards including back to back wins in overall excellence in photography at the North American Travel Journalism Association.

Dave and Deb are often included in top Instagram lists compiled by the likes of Forbes, Yahoo Travel, USA Today, AOL and Harpers Bazaar.  They are now looking forward to focusing on video to really bring the viewer into the destinations that they visit.
