Our highlights

This blog is made up of inspirational travel tales from Flight Centre consultants, featured bloggers and budding writers whose passion for travel pours from their posts. Some of our favourites include;

A post by Flight Centre’s Sally McCutchion about a trip to India that spurred conflicting emotions – India: Love it or hate it

Travel writer Candace Rardon’s honest account of hiking the Tongariro Crossing in New Zealand


Vicky Philpott’s comic account of her attempt to track down celebrities in LA.

Popular posts

Undoubtedly this year’s most popular post was Seeking bloggers for a G Adventure in India where we announced our search for a roving reporter to send on a G Adventures tour of the Golden Triangle. The response to this contest was huge and all the entries were highly impressive. We eventually whittled the entries down to 1 winner, Jenna Harrison, who impressed with her ability to tell a tale in statements of 140 characters – a crucial skill for travel bloggers. She kept us entertained with quips and images live from India and is currently sharing her thoughts and learnings from the experience on the blog. Read the first installment here.

Watch this space for further opportunities to follow in Jenna’s footsteps.

Thanks to all who have been involved so far. Good luck in the £100 Gift Card giveaway! Leave your comment below by the 26th April 2012 to be in with the chance of winning.

This contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who took part – your comments are much appreciated.

Update 27th April: Congratulations to Natalie Moore whose name was drawn at random as the winner of the £100 Gift Card. Thanks once again to all who took part – your feedback is invaluable and we will endeavour to take it all on board for posts and developments in the future.
