And the winner of Best Travel Blog is…

I’ve been meaning to mention this for a while but things have been so busy. Earlier this year I was shortlisted for the award of Best Travel Blog in the Travelmole Web Awards and I attended an awards ceremony sponsored by Pure Michigan at the Rah Rah Room in London’s Piccadilly area. The awards aim to “recognize the best web, social, mobile and travel technology deployments”.

The award for the Best Travel Blog category was sponsored by Exodus Travels and I’m delighted to be able to tell you that A Luxury Travel Blog won!

This comes on the back of our earlier award for Best Travel Influencer in WIRED magazine’s Innovation in Travel Awards, and nicely complements us recently being ranked as #1 in the Rise Top 1,000+ Travel Blogs. What a busy time it’s been!!
