Was it really August since I last updated here? Hmm, well that’s obviously because I’ve been such a busy darn bumblebee, silly!
Anyhoo the Egypt trip didn’t materialise in the end but the Croatian island cruise was sublime. Go there now before the hoardes descend, as they surely shall.
And crossing Canada by train was a sheer, unmitigated delight. Via Rail really knows how to do long distance trains with real aplomb. As a result of that trip, I did a few paid posts for the excellent Round the World Flights Travel Blog and one about the GoMedia conference in Edmonton for Travelllll.com. (Yes it really is called that.)
I found Edmonton to be an unfairly much maligned, but down to earth, city with its fair share of pleasant surprises, including a wonderful vintage tram ride that passes high over the glorious North Sasketchewan River and the world’s second biggest Fringe Festival. Now, where is the biggest one again? Hmm, I forget…
Great 2012 so far
I’m delighted to announce that I’ve started 2012 with a brand, spanking new client project – and it’s a true beaut too. I’m currently handling the social media efforts of the Train Chartering Company. We hire out trains for corporate travel, events, weddings, filming and all sorts of other exciting, fun projects, plus we offer many of the world’s greatest luxury train trips, via our sister site the Luxury Train Club.
I’m at the helm of our blogs, facebook, twitter, google+ and pretty much any other social network we decide to hitch our wagon to. Of course I’m being my usual, ebullient and social self even when I’m wearing my Train Chartering cap and sharing lots of fun stuff, so do make sure you get on board with it all.
Travel Writing Blog
I’m also working on an equally exciting new travel writing blog project with a well established travel British travel writer and editor, which I’ll be ripping the plastic sheeting off of shortly…
I’m hoping it’s going to really boost my freelancing career and also be useful to lots of other freelance writers out there. Watch this space yes, that’s right, that one there. Oh you missed it did you? Well not to worry, cos here it is again there.
Til then my freinds – and next time, don’t leave it so long eh?
