Reflecting on her promotion to editor, Lea Rose Allbaugh commented: “I recently became an editor after freelance writing for Travel Lemming for about a year. My entire experience with Travel Lemming has been wonderful — the culture is so friendly and supportive, which is amazing considering the fact that our team works totally asynchronously and online. I’ve grown a lot as a travel writer and I love being part of a publication that shares travel knowledge written by people who have a real passion for travel and the places they call home.”

Nate Hake, CEO & Founder of Travel Lemming, commented: “It is my goal to build Travel Lemming into a one-stop-shop for all your travel information needs. I want Travel Lemming to be the first place travelers go when they want honest and helpful perspectives from other knowledgeable humans. This expansion will allow us to offer guides to some of the places most requested by our readers, like Paris, Boston, New York City, and the United Kingdom.”

Mr. Hake added: “The next step in our expansion will be selling products and services under the Travel Lemming brand name. We are currently working on our first digital products, as well as a premium membership subscription, which we hope to launch before the end of 2023.”
