Guess who's in the Irish Times?


Yes, it's me. No, not the news section with a scary report of a woman gone wild around Ronaldo (although it's not beyond the realms of impossibility) nor in the business section about a woman gone stony broke so her children are looking desparately for work so they can eat (anyone know of a temporary bar staff job or security or general casual labour? There's nothing going that we can find - completely demoralising)

No I'm in the Go section (Travel). Hidden Gems. Buy one today and read it and then write your own, why not?

I've loads more ideas from when I used to travel places. Maybe they'd be interested in a piece about travelling when you've no money...

BTW - they pay. 300 words. Give it a go.

I found your blog via Niamh at Writer on the way home - I did a guest slot on her blog back in late july here:
http://writeronthewayhome.blogspot.com/2009/07/guest-post-reverse-culture-shock-in.html
and I looked for your Hidden Gem in the archive of the Irish times - I presume it's the fjord one so well done on being published!
I like the look of your blog and will follow it - I have only a self-published short story in a collection we did as a writer's group some years ago, and I blog for fun and relaxation as well as to vent occasionally - and share recipes and some travel and art pieces. Please follow it if you wish, all new readers are very welcome!
All the best, Catherine.
