You know what makes travel journalists like us happy? New outlets for our freelance travel stories and we’ve got two to tell you about this month. But first, something that makes us even happier: We’re delighted to let you know that the Selling Pablo feature we did about Pablo Escobar tourism in Colombia just won an Honorable Mention in the Foreign Travel category of the prestigious Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) 2014 Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Awards.
