Anaheim, Calif., June 03, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- If you’re an avid user of SnapChat or Instagram, now’s the time to inspire your wanderlust. Announcing a new year-long partnership, Contiki Vacations - the world leader in travel for 18 to 35 year olds – has teamed up with fashion blogger and TV host Sazan Barzani (www.sazan.me) through the eyes of a young working professional in search of fashion inspiration in destinations around the world. For the next year, Sazan will be Contiki Vacations’ ambassador, traveling to different Contiki destinations and highlighting the experience for young Americans who want to travel abroad.
Sazan kicked off her first Contiki travel experience with Contiki’s best-selling trip – European Discovery – a 13-day jaunt through some of the most popular countries in Europe, including The Netherlands, Italy, and France.
Through a combination of daily photos and videos on Snapchat and Instagram, Sazan will encourage her followers to determine “Where in the World is Sazan?” She will reveal each Contiki destination as she goes along, combining her fashion expertise with inspiration she gathers during her travels. Afterwards, the fashion blogger will recap her adventures through her YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/sazanbarzani) as well as her blog, providing insightful fashion and travel tips that any young traveler can use, such as packing multi-functional outfits for a long trip.
“Millennials naturally use platforms like Snapchat and Instagram to find photos and videos to inspire the foods they should eat, the clothes they should wear, and the destinations they should travel to, so it is a perfect fit to partner with an influencer like Sazan,” says Melissa da Silva, President of Contiki Vacations. “As a young professional, Sazan exemplifies a real first-time Contiki traveler. They have limited time off but want to see as much as they can, have fun and meet new people, and we have over 50 years’ experience creating all of that for millennial travelers.”
Richard Frias, President of Mighty Fresh, Sazan Barzani’s management company agrees. “The team at Contiki continues to demonstrate how in tune they are with their consumer base by partnering with influential cross-platform talent like our client Sazan.”
