This month Austin goes batty, Monarchs make a peaceful invasion of Mexico, a flight attendant trades-in her wings, and a casual photo becomes dinner at an embassy.
Extra kudos go to Fred Mays for his story, Austin Goes Batty. While attending a Great Escape Publishing travel writer’s workshop in Austin, Fred covered the evening bat flight, took photos, and wrote the story, submitting it to TPM the day after the workshop ended. Way to get the assignment Fred.
Ellen followed Monarch butterflies to Mexico for their annual migration. She shares her experience of their peaceful invasion and tells us how she got there, where she stayed and how to help the endangered creatures.
Golf in the morning, ski after lunch, then have coffee and cocktails where the royals relax, Klosters Switzerland. Elsa Dixon knows the area well and shares excellent places to immerse in the local sport, culture, and scenery.
Lastly, we are invited to dinner with the Aparan Ambassador. Charlotte Boyle’s small act of kindness, sharing her photo, resulted in a dinner of Armenia’s finest food and beverage at the Aparan Caucasus embassy. She tells us how it all came about.
