Woohoo – I’m a winner!

I’m gob-smacked excited!! I have just been awarded the US Travel Association Travel Writer’s Award for my story on Las Vegas in the Herald on Sunday (getting a spray tan and a poker lesson – altho you can play spot the typos in this online version – aagh!) at the annual Pow Wow conference – this year held in Miami.

I’m stoked. The last thing I won was a box of dehydrated beans in a Watties competition. And my new (framed) certificate will hang beside the one with the 5 gold stars I got for various breath-holding swimming pool achievements.

Here’s the official press release that I keep reading to convince myself its not a dream. Lol.
