A few weeks ago I received an email asking if I would like to go on a press trip and then write a travel piece for a certain magazine. Of course I jumped at the chance...literally! My first commission AND my first press trip!!
Yesterday I arrived home from said trip, and what an amazing four days I had. Not only did I visit an indescribably beautiful part of a country I’d not yet had the pleasure of visiting, I stayed in two stunning hotels (with my own rooms!), took part in exhilarating activities I never thought I’d do, and met some amazing people. Plus thirty degree weather, delicious food and jaw-dropping views equated to a beyond brilliant trip – an experience I will never forget.
I was so lucky to be presented with this opportunity, and as if all that wasn’t fabulous enough...I now get to write a piece for a national women’s magazine! As a freelancer, I have written for various small print and online publications but this will be my first byline in a well known title. Eeeeeeeeeeeee I’m SO excited!!
Without revealing too much before the article is published, here are some shots from the trip. Perhaps you can guess where I went and what I did...
How did you spend your weekends?
