Things haven’t exactly turned for the better since my latest update in September. It is certainly tough days in the world of travel-related jobs. I’ve seen first hand how cafés, bars, hotels and restaurants have had to close permanently here in Madrid. And I know that many travel sections and magazines are facing big challenges in times where almost no one travels.
I’ve felt it personally too, of course. Freelance travel writing hasn’t become any easier, but I still have hope that things will turn around within 2021, and meanwhile, shouldn’t we give people something to dream about for when it’s finally safer and easier to travel again?
Travel inspiration can be presented in many ways, and I have a bunch of material in stock that definitely will make readers dream and extend their to-travel-lists for the near future.
Despite these trying times, I’ve managed to share some travel inspiration recently. My latest newspaper article was published in Berlingske at the end of September. A three-page cover story about dogsledding in the Swiss Alps. It was one of my most memorable work trips resulting in an article that hopefully made readers dream away.
Besides this, I’ve had a blog post from North Wales published by the Independent Hostel Guide, I’ve been writing a bunch of online guides for the Scandi-focued Routes North, and I recently finished an exciting magazine article to be published at some point in 2021.
Now I’ve got time on my hands to write new articles, blog posts and guides, and I’m eager to do my tiny bit to help get people excitied for travelling again – so be sure to get in touch if you’re looking for a hopeful travel writer!
And hopefully, you’ll manage to have a good Christmas despite it all.
Greetings from Madrid!
