Where's Wendy? Vacationing Around
by Wendy Perrin
In honor of the end of summer, and the preservation of my sanity, I'm taking a break from this blog for the next two weeks so I can have a true vacation. The "Deal of the Day" team and I will be back on Monday, August 31. Meanwhile, if you'd like to hear about my vacation adventures, you can follow me on Twitter, where I post quick updates and photos from the road.
Indeed, the past week has seen me Twittering from Alaska, British Columbia, Seattle, and the San Francisco Bay Area. We even played a "Where's Wendy?" game on Twitter: I dropped photographic clues as to my whereabouts, and people tried to guess where I was. Click on each link in this sentence and you can see some of the clues I posted in Juneau, at Hubbard Glacier, in Sitka, in Ketchikan, and in Victoria, B.C. The whole time I was actually on board Holland America Line's Amsterdam, cruising Alaska's Inside Passage.
Upon disembarking on Saturday in Seattle, I popped down to Corte Madera, CA, to speak at the Book Passage Travel Writers & Photographers Conference. (First I was on a panel entitled "The Web: Blogging, Tweeting & Social Networking" with Jen Leo of the L.A. Times and Jim Benning of World Hum. Then veteran travel writer and conference chair Don George interviewed me for a session entitled "A Day in the Life of a Multimedia Travel Journalist." Which only underscored my need for a true vacation.)
Now I've rejoined my husband and kids in Seattle. We're spending the next couple of days here before flying back East and driving down to St. Michaels, Maryland. As you may recall, we had an awesome time there last summer, so we're heading back for a repeat of the fun.
See you back here at The Perrin Post on Monday, August 31... or on Twitter later today.
