A New Adventure

The Home Straight



March 16, 2016

There has been a long gap since I last wrote any updates. Without going into too much detail here, I had to break off from this assignment for a while. I have been busy behind the scenes and normal service has been resumed.

The travel feature on Antarctica makes for an unusual holiday, definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It is something for the traveller who wants to push boundaries and encounter an extreme travel adventure. As I wanted to use photographs of the aircraft and Union Glacier camp, I sent an email to Leslie Wicks, the Marketing director of Antarctic Logistics and Expeditions (ALE). She very kindly sent me the images I wanted to include in my piece and asked that I give credit to the photographer/ALE. It is important to respect copyright laws. It’s not just courteous, it’s the law. I think that my feature would be suitable for publication in Sidetracked Magazine, an adventure travel brand interested in breath-taking adventures, or Wanderlust, who focus on special interest travel to off-the-beaten-track destinations.

The crime feature has evolved into a comment piece as the informal tone was more suitable to convey my own experiences over time. I wanted to draw attention to the whole scale of cyber-crime and include some facts and figures but I didn’t want it to be too dry or dull. I also didn’t want this to be a lecture on how to use the internet, more of an awareness piece. So I focussed on a couple of examples of scamming and hacking using recent media articles for reference and some mind-blowing statistics of the extent and cost of cyber-crime. The targeted publications for this piece would be the Huffington Post Tech Section, which has a more casual style of writing and would be useful for promoting my specialism online. I think the Daily Express Comment Section has a quite relaxed tone while still being informative. A traditional newspaper with an online version will be appropriate for the age demographic I would like to access.
