My trip report--Published!

Not a big deal, but I managed to get my trip report of a recent trip to UK/Italy/Ireland/France published in a local paper. If interested, you can read it at http://www.independent.com/living/mylife916.htm
Thanks to all on this forum who helped with the itinerary.

Well, Congratulations!!! But I hope you were thoughtful enough to have Ira, the Grammar Policeman, proof read it before it was submitted.

This article certainly doesn't need any grammar police, official or unofficial. Excellent report and very interesting. We need more like it here.

Thanks for the kind words! We submitted it on a whim to the local weekly, so anyone else who feels the need to publish might give it a shot after your next European jaunt. I've seen a few posters asking how to break into travel writing, and that's really all it was to it for us. That 75 dollars we earned ought to just about cover dinner in Paris one night this next December.

Thanks, Scarlett. And of course, it just makes me want to cash in those frequent flyer miles and travel tomorrow.

Congratulations...
I was just reading the thread on travel writing and what comes through loud and clear is to have an unusual slant and your article certainly has that.
It's also written in a very entertaining and engaging way - a good read.
Well done and thanks for sharing!
