I'm feeling rather happy today. In between writing and recording Podtours, I occasionally find time to submit to the Guardian's 'Been there' travel site. It works on the same basis as tripadvisor - submitted reviews of sights, hotels, bars. And every weekend the paper gathers together tips on particular cities and prints them as a feature in the travel supplement.
Three of my tips on Sicily made it into the newspaper yesterday! Apparently I'll get a t-shirt for my efforts. As a journalist I wonder what the opportunity cost of the t-shirt is... about 70 quid at my usual word rate. Even so, I'm a happy girl today.
