The marina at Harbour Town at Hilton Head Island
So I am happy to report that later this week, I will be visiting a coastal town in Georgia that I've never been to before. I can taste the fruity drink with a tropical umbrella already! The rich history of Savannah also awaits. But that being said, because of my profession, I always try to take advantage of any fun trips we take because I can possibly cash in on them in the future. I hold on to all my receipts for the museums we visit and restaurants we eat it and always make sure to take my camera. I typically focus on looking at the "family-friendly" angle of a travel destination, and some examples of ways I've turned vacations into assignments are as follows:
- Which Carolina Beach is Best for Your Family?
- Life's a Breeze in the Lowcountry
- Lights, Camera . . . Asheville!
- Asheville: Mountain Adventures Just a Tank of Gas Away
- Hours of Amusement at the Children's Museum of Winston-Salem
So the next time you take a trip, even if it is just a visit to an aquarium with your children or a fun girls' getaway, take your camera and your notepad. I guarantee you'll be inspired by something, and might even be able to sell an assignment later that will pay for your entire trip!
