I am delighted to have won the Bradt/Independent on Sunday travel writing competition 2013, with my article “In Deep Snow” – a story of how an attempt to break a fjord horse to harness ended in disaster while I was living in Arctic Finland last winter. (Wilma, the offending horse, can be seen on the right in the image above).
My article will be published in the Independent on Sunday’s travel section this weekend – please pick up a copy if you can, and I will also post the cutting online on Monday.
The prize is a week-long trip for two to Istria, courtesy of the Croatian Tourist Board and a commission to write about it for the Independent on Sunday. I can’t wait.
