“Are you on that bleeping website again?”
That’s what I kept hearing from Jamie all last summer. I like MyWanderlust, the on-line community for travellers hosted by Wanderlust magazine. But it can get a bit addictive. Finally, in a can’t-beat-em-join-em mood Jamie started to post up some of his photos, and now he’s hooked too.
Anyway, my addiction was fed and nurtured last Saturday when the Towers (that’s the nickname for the editorial team at Wanderlust) asked me to join a skype link with them at the London Destinations show. A gang of intrepid forum members was planning to have tea and biscuits with the magazine staff and would I like to virtually join in?
So Jamie and I dusted off our skype account and fired up the dongle. Considering we are on a boat in India, and Peter Moore from Wanderlust was on a laptop in Pizza Express at Earls Court, we did well to talk at all. It was an honour to talk to Peter, and to virtually see and hear the other people there.
My day was truly made when not content with the award for ‘Best Experience’ of 2011 with A Rajput Gentleman, I was given the greenhorn award for ‘Best Newcomer’.
Aw shucks, thanks guys, I’m well and truly hooked on you now ♥
