Reinvented destinations around the world

Back in January I was asked to join a panel of judges for a travel writing competition, with the theme of reinvention. Did you try your had at travel writing?

The entries have now been judged and the results are out, and I'm very proud to admit that I contributed to choosing the winner.


The winning piece was undeniably the best, but they were all very well crafted, some really bringing the related destinations to life.

Check out the top 10 entries, over on the Gowalkabout website. There is also a handy map showing all the destinations from the best pick of all the entries received. These are worth considering next time you are planning a trip as many describe the changes that have taken place and how the destination has been reinvented.

Maybe you will find somewhere local to you, or that you have experienced yourself...
