Sunshine & Stilettos is The GoAbroad ‘Blog of the Week’

I’m excited to share that my blog, Sunshine and Stilettos, was nominated and selected as the GoAbroad Blog of The Week!

You can read the announcement here.

If you haven’t heard of, get ready to block out some hours out of your day (and weeks). It’s one of the top online resources for not only all things travel, but also for ideas and opportunities for work, studying or volunteering abroad. It’s chock full of valuable programs from around the world. I check it regularly and it was one of the first sites I visited when I returned home last week from my 3-months away. It’s one of my favorite sources of travel inspiration. Thanks GoAbroad, for the award and recognition! And for all the fantastic information you provide to encourage travel.
