Being on the road in the DR while researching and writing Moon Dominican Republic has left me with little time for pitching–yet I’ve been blessed with a few writing opportunities for print publications.
Here’s what’s coming up the pipeline:
*A feature article (2,500 words) on Punta Cana for Here & Beyond Magazine, a travel trade publication (October 2015);
*A feature article for Delta Sky Magazine (in Despegando, Sky’s spanish version) on Montego Bay, Jamaica (October 2015); and
*A highlight piece on the Dominican Republic (500 words, part of an islands round up) in The Sunday Times >>
Greetings from the heart of the Dominican Republic–also known as the Cibao Valley!
It’s been a while since I posted – I’ve been busy outdoors, running around the central highlands of the DR: bathing in waterfalls, mountain climbing, rafting down rivers and taking in breathtaking views! It’s a side of the Dominican Republic that few visitors get to see. I’ll share a few postcards soon and look for my tips in the next Moon Dominican Republic edition (2016).
In the meantime, here’s a two-minute video I put together of my paragliding experience this week in the mountain town of Jarabacoa. An unforgettable 30 minutes. And it shows just how incredibly diverse this country’s landscape and geography are, well beyond endless miles of white sand beaches.
