The Little Travel Society Core Team

Sonja Alefi, founder
Little Travel Society is my baby – my fourth. I have always loved traveling and as I am very curious I speak a hand full of foreign languages. I keep an overview and I am continually developing Little Travel Society further. I also shape the online marketing strategy. I am a graduate cultural economist and marketing specialist. In my former life I worked, among others, as a brand manager at Danone and financed sustainable companies as an investment manager. I speak German, English, French, Spanish and Farsi.
If you want to get in contact with me, please, write to email@example.com.
Laura Brauer, editor-in-chief
I am the travel poet of Little Travel Society. Already as a child I traveled around the globe with my mom – traveling runs in my blood. I don´t only write texts, I also coordinate our freelance writers and I am constantly networking with bloggers and journalists. After all, they are my colleagues. In my former life, I had been the editor-in-chief for the resort „VIP“ at the daily news paper „Hamburger Morgenpost“. For 13 years! Today the hosts of our beautiful hideaways are my VIPs… I speak German and English.

Nadine Gehrisch – Hotel Scout & Writer, Social Media
Why I am the right person for Little Travel Society? I have a background in tourism and lived some time in the south of the UK and in Barcelona. This is why I love a rough coast as much as warm summer nights on a Plaça. As writer I am painting vivid pictures with my words for our readers (something I also do in my blog heimataufenthalt). And as a hotel scout I am looking for special places and present them to our readers in our social media. I speak German and English.
If you want to get in contact with me please write to email@example.com.
Anael Heidweiler – Hotel Scout, Writer, New Projects, Strategy
As a daughter of a hotel owner I – voluntarily – used to fold many, many napkins during my school holidays. I studied International Marketing in the Netherlands and the US. Als a media planner I worked in Munich and Hamburg and as a mom of two boys have always been looking for beautiful childfriendly places. This is how I found the Little Travel Society and liked it so much that I stayed – since 2018 I am a member of the team. I speak German, Dutch and English.

Lucia Vaccarro Notte – Hotel Scout, Writer & Italy expert
After spending every sommer in the same Sicilian mountain village of my family, I decided: I want to travel! I started with Fuerteventura where I worked as a host entertainer and stayed in Rome for one year during my studies of Applied Cultural Science. After working many years as a product manager for vamos Reisen I started to work for the Little Travel Society in 2018 where I find for our readers beautiful places with a soul! I speak German and Italian.

Antje Roeding – Writer
At the age of 10 I invested my whole pocket money in order to visit my friend´s grandmother in Spain and I thought it was totally exaggerated that as „unaccompanied minors“ we couldn´t fly without an attendant… I studied Business Administration in Bavaria and Argentina, and worked for TUI in Hannover. In the meanwhile, I I have been living in Dubai for 12 years with my Italien husband and our son. From there I have been writing for Little Travel Society since the beginning of 2018. I speak German, English, Spanish and Italian.

Travelscout Families (our location scouts)
Last but not least, may we introduce to your our most important big and small team members? Silvia and Simon with Ludwig and Helene, Armin and Sarah with Lia, Petra and Thomas with Julius and Luis, Sandra and and and… Thanks to all these great families we find you – the hidden gems!
Who are our readers?
Our readers are well-educated families with a big travel budget. Through targeted PR and adressing in social media we are getting into contact with this community. The content of our website and our blog appeals to a certain type of families – young (at heart), looking for something special, with many interests.
What holiday spots fit into our collection?
Hotels and holiday homes with charm where families with kids are welcome. We do not only list children´s hotels but mostly holiday accommodations with a certain extra where kids are ALSO welcome. We call it „child- and parentfriendly“. Sustainable hideaways will be especially welcome. Quality comes before quantity – hotels cannot „buy“ into our collection.
What does it cost you?
We are remaining true to the motto „cobbler, stick to your last“. That means, we don´t want to have a booking engine on our website. We prefer to bring you and your guest into contact directly. We believe that a third child or the request for a water boiler don´t really fit into a standard booking system. It is something you know better than we do. We prefer to concentrate on what we know best – presenting your hideaway in the best light and finding suitable guests for you.
We are financing our website by annual listing fees. Without subscription or contract. You decide every year anew if you want to stay. The amount of the fee is based on the number of rooms/houses you offer. Our listing fee starts at 390 Euro for a single holiday home. We will be happy to tell you more about what is included and how we work if you send us a quick email to email@example.com. We are looking forward to getting to know to many more beautiful hotels and holiday homes!
What can we do for you? (media data)
We are honest and authentic: Our loved-by seal
As all holiday spots on our page have been checked by us thoroughly and have been recommended, our readers know that your hide-away will meet their expectations. You and your place are the stars here! We do not use ready-made press releases. We try to understand the soul of your hideaway and find out about the nice little details. We avoid typical advertising language. We have an informal style with lots of humour – in a way a friend would recommend a hotel to someone.
You will be found!
Our map and search helps families to find exactly what they are looking for. Family facts such as „Is it possible to have an extra bed in the room?“ or „Is there baby equipment?“ are given for every hotel and holiday home. In our blog our readers also will find fitting hotel recommendations for every topic. Furthermore, we worked with SEO experts to optimize our page. In July 2019 we had over 85.000 Unique Visitors and 240.000 page views per month on our webpage, 22.000 Facebook fans, nearly 7.000 instagram followers, 56.000 viewers on pinterest per month and more than 6.000 newsletter subscribers. We have an interested community on all important social media channels. Many ways to contact your future clients….
