26 Oct Flying Isfahan with Gastro and Travel blog Foodiona
How to bring the destination alive? Or better say how to experience a tasty side of Isfahan without even going to this beautiful city?
Delicious with Persian style
Our gastro and travel blogger Barbara Črgar from blog Foodiona taught us how to prepare delicacies from Persian cuisine such us chelo kebab – lamb with rice and Nan Berendži biscuits with rice flour and cardamom. If this is not enough to turn on your imagination, and motivate you to immediately pack for Isfahan, then maybe it will be easier to decide about your Isfahan journey if you know the information that Austrian Airlines is flying to Isfahan 3 times per week from Vienna. After departure from Zagreb and short stopover in Vienna, continuing the flight that will last 4 hours and 20 minutes you will find yourself in the magical city of Isfahan.

Bloggers are great promoters of destinations and airlines
When talking about destinations promotion and airlines promotion travel, gastro, fashion and in general lifestyle bloggers should be a great part of communication strategy of any brand. Not only they will promote destination in truly inspiring style but also their experiences, thoughts and tips will have more impact on public. Bloggers are persuasive, emotional, inspirational, they have clear way to readers imagination.
The influence of travel bloggers is getting even better in the times of fast social media sharing, as they are really skilled and creative when posting their content. Another important reason to cooperate with them is the fact that they really know how to engage people, and they have loyal readers who are willing to share their suggestions. And the most beautiful part of cooperation with bloggers is that they don’t just do the promotion campaign, they truly live it!
