I was thrilled to learn today that NATJA – the North American Travel Journalists Association – recognized four of the stories and photos from this website in their annual award competition.
With a field of over 1000 entries, and gold medalists such as National Geographic Traveler as well as some of the best respected travel bloggers in the industry, I am humbled that some of my stories and photos were included in this group of winners. I am especially inspired by these four wins since my site was only 5 months old when I submitted my entries.
Thank you NATJA for the recognition and the implied encouragement that comes with these wins to keep on traveling and writing and photographing about my experiences.
Here are my winning entries:
Bronze – Luxury and Resort Travel Online Publication category
Finalist – Destination Travel, Online Publication category
Finalist – Photography: Overall Excellence, Online Publication category
Finalist – Photography: Facility or Architectural-Print or Online Category
Thank you NATJA and thank you to all of you that keep coming back to read about my experiences. And Congratulations to all the other winners.
