Travel Writing? Go for it the Easy Way

Travel Writing Workshop in Hong Kong ©Solange Hando

Ever dreamed of being a travel writer but don't know where to start?
Well, there are all sorts of ways but the easiest and quickest is to focus on travel features.

Here are three good reasons:

1-Features are short term projects, a day, maybe two, leaving you plenty of time for other interests and commitments. 
2-If an article is turned down, you soon get over it, but a book? Months, years of hard work perhaps and not getting anywhere? Not so easy...
3-But best of all, articles are always in demand, right across the world.

 Did you know that over 80 countries use English as an official language with hundreds, often thousands of magazines and newspapers looking to fill their pages, every week or every month?

The world is yours, all you have to do is get it right.
Did you spot the red roses in Hong Kong?
Wonderful but you don't have to go there to learn the trade...

Just a click away, this little book tells it all, 100 easy to read pages, packed with tips and anecdotes and endorsed by award-winning travel writers.
Special discount on Amazon, enjoy while it lasts!

Travel Story? Love to join in...

Royal Cousins...and me at the Coronation ©Solange Hando

Belt, pins, kira, it was all there, laid out on the bed but how do you put on a Bhutanese dress? Perhaps the hotel staff could help?
'Sorry, madam, too early, no ladies on duty.'
So there I was in a hotel room, 5.30 in the morning, with two men I'd never met, struggling with metres of fabric, folding this way, that way, under the arm, over the arm, to no avail. 'I can't be late for a Coronation,' I pleaded, so the youngest ran out into the street to look for a woman, any woman who would know what to do. No one in sight, the men struggled on.
When I reached the monastery gate at last, the police lady smiled: 'Excuse me, madam, your dress isn't quite right, may I help you?'

Going native is great fun and can be more exciting than you'd expect!
Now, what's your story?
I'm sure you have plenty to tell so if you'd like to be a travel writer, enjoy yourself and earn some cash, just follow the link on Amazon.  
Good luck and see you on the road...
