Starting this blog has definitely changed my life in many ways. Sometimes it’s stressful, sometimes I have the “writer block”, but I love every bit of it. Thanks to my blog I am more focused of what I really want from life, I get constant support from the travelers community (I love you!) and I also enjoyed some beautiful trips I wouldn’t have done otherwise.
It’s been almost 2 years since I started and the best way to celebrate my second blog-versary has just popped up in my life: I’m joining a sponsored blog trip to the tiny island country of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, in the Caribbean Sea.
A few months ago I started a collaboration with Traveldudes, a website I’m sure everyone of you know very well. From a regular user, I was given the chance of becoming an editor and I accepted enthusiastically.
Being an editor is a huge opportunity for me to learn a lot about travel writing, and also a constant spring of inspiration for my travels.
What I didn’t imagine was that I was about to be given the chance of representing Traveldudes in some awesome blog trips. Long story short: Caribbean, here I come!
The blog trip: May 14th to 20th, 2012
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is a tiny country in the Caribbean Sea, just between St Lucia and Martinique. Did you ever hear about it before? Because I didn’t. The same thing happened to me when a friend of mine asked me “why don’t we go to Honduras”? and I had to Google it. And then, what a surprise!
And I love surprises.
I am sure St Vincent and Grenadines will surprise me in many ways.
The itinerary includes several tours of the main islands, waterfalls, a volcano climb (first time for me! And I love volcanoes!), a gorgeous botanical garden with spices and colorful parrots, and then of course breathtaking sea and inviting beach hotels.
After 5 months of snow, this is just the perfect trip for me and I can’t wait to be there and start reporting.
The trip is organized and sponsored by VisitSVG, the SVG Tourism Board.
