DON’T WORRY, HE’S ONLY BEING SOCIAL
I’m positive most of you think this isn’t a real job, and that I spend all my time running around the country; travelling, taking photos, making daft videos and chucking it all on social media. Well, much as I’d like it to be, that’s just not the case. I seem to recall the job ad sounded a bit like the above description though.
These last few weeks have actually been the exception to the rule, a very welcome exception. I am currently in a caravan park in Yarrawonga, just over the Murray into Victoria. I am on my way to the Man from Snowy River Bush Festival over at Corryong (our media group is a sponsor). I’d spent a single day in the office this week, after Easter, before heading off down here from Sydney, and the previous two weeks as you might have noticed from our social media pages, in Tasmania.
That was my first trip to Tassie, and everyone who told me how beautiful it was, and how much I’d enjoy it were spot on. What a place. I’d had a loose plan – leave Devonport, turn right. And even that was open to change until I actually headed out into a dark Devonport morning and pointed the Winnebago towards Ulverstone.
What followed was a haphazard adventure – the best kind – where distractions took me off in all different directions until I realised I had to start heading back to port. I will be writing up my story in the upcoming issues of RV Daily along with a review of the Winnebago and my experience on the Spirit of Tasmania.
I started wondering this evening, how many of you check out our Facebook and Instagram pages. Are they something you enjoy? You can interact with both, obviously, and even
though we can also publish things immediately via the mag or website these pages bring constant interaction.
So, despite what you might think, most of the time it’s toil behind a screen, honest! It’s our many wonderful contributors that are the ones travelling and submitting their adventures, reviews and product tests.
These last few weeks though, have reminded me how wonderful our country is to tour. So, if you have been feeling the urge or having an itch to head off I sincerely hope you have the chance to scratch that itch. And don’t forget, we’re always keen to hear your stories too; you can always drop me a line at the email on this page.
