I'm home again and my flu has finally gone away, leaving me instead with a sinus headache and a slight cough.
But I got a piece of news while I was gone that put me in a slightly better mood.
Remember that Antarctica story I wrote for PerceptiveTravel.com last year? Sure you do, because it's all lazy Marie managed to write last year.
It won silver in the cruise category in some travel writing awards. Strategic entry in a category that is surely underserved might have been a factor. Or maybe not.
