Not to sound like a Halle Berry poster*, but seriously — so many thank you’s to the writers who have featured me in press! It always makes my day. I know how much effort goes into creating a good story, and it might be something small for them to mention or interview me, but it has done wonders for helping amazing people find out about TravelBreak.

Alongside surprised and pitched press stories, I’ve been a contributing writer for several magazines, featured in U.S. television airports, and won the 2015 international blogger competition “Share Istria.” So an even bigger thank you to TravelBreak readers for the unbelievable opportunity you gave me and continue to give me!
Please, just know that I don’t take it for granted.

The biggest shout out goes to the bloggers who I most respect and admire, that have included me in their own round up lists. I always try to return the favor.

Oh yeah and this happened.
