Who is behind One Tiny Leap?

Hi, I’m Maria, a Brighton based family travel blogger. One Tiny Leap is where I share our family’s travels, from our round the world trip, current travels in Europe and beyond, and our favourite restaurants, shops and hotels along the way.

One Tiny Leap is a top 20 Trips100 travel blog, that has been nominated for a MADs Award (Mum and Dads Awards) and BIB (Brilliant in Blogging Award). We have recently been selected as Ambassadors for Mark Warner and I will be part of the upcoming BritMums Live conference.

I have worked with brands such as Marks & Spencer, Monarch Airlines, Fujifilm, Martinhal ResortsFinisterre to name but a few.

A bit more about us

I’m passionate about family travel, and believe that getting out of your comfort zone to explore your immediate surroundings, or traveling further afield to new countries, is of immense value to a child’s education, and their progress in life.

After living in the English town of Brighton, I and my family of 3 (Mum, Dad and Cholly) moved to Lisbon (Portugal) for just over a year, before embarking on our trip of a lifetime.

During our trip, we’re travelling around the USA by car with a couple of brief visits to Canada (Montreal, Quebec and Vancouver), before flying off to New Zealand, Australia and finally, fulfilling a long-held dream by visiting Japan.

What type of posts do I publish & who reads my blog?

My blog features a diverse array of travel posts; generally a destination post featuring some top tips’ for families; the odd ‘photo tour‘, as well as product, hotel and restaurant reviews. I aim to make high-quality content and photography a constant.

One Tiny Leap has a steady and loyal readership, mainly from the UK and the USA, but also from Portugal and other parts of Europe. The bounce rate is extremely low, and numbers are growing steadily every month. All of my followers have arrived solely through organic routes.

How can we work together?

I enjoy working with brands who I feel reflect OTL’s image and message, and would love to hear from you if you think the site would be a good fit for your brand. My family-focused posts are engaging and feature beautiful photography, perfect for introducing your business to new audiences, and guaranteed to make it shine.

Featured Posts + Giveaways + Product Reviews

Sharing useful, interesting information in a format that engages my readers is incredibly important to me, as I am lucky to have a loyal audience who read, share and comment on my posts regularly. I am happy to feature sponsored content (which will be marked as such), advertise your business and do product reviews, as well as host giveaways that I feel would be of interest to my readers. 

Tourist Boards + Hotel or Restaurant Reviews

If you are part of a tourism board, or the owner of a hotel/small B&B or restaurant that happens to be on our route, then we would be happy to visit and help you get more exposure, both on the blog with my own photography and of course on my social media channels.

Photography Work

If you like the style of my work and would like me to style and photograph your product or service, please just get in touch with me. My rates are very reasonable and I take a great deal of pride in my work.


I find that being honest and transparent with your readers is the best thing you can do, and as such, I will always clearly label a post sponsored/review. If you’d like to advertise on the blog, please email me to find out more about my rates.
