Hibiscus & Nomada’s editor will be Mathew Di Salvo, a former news wire journalist who also has experience in travel writing.

“It’s extremely exciting to be taking over this blog, which has amassed an impressive following in its short time. At Espacio we were blown away by the photos and the variety of locations it featured. Our enthusiastic team is fully up to the continuing the great job Marion created,” said Di Salvo.

“We hope to expand the site by reaching even more untouched and beautiful locations and demonstrating that great content can still come out of the somewhat crowded market of travel blogging,” he added.
