About Us

You cannot hope to bribe or twist, thank God! the British journalist. But, seeing what the man will do unbribed, there’s no occasion to.

BGTW travel writers head for Oman
#BGTW Chair @melissashales has 'pulled a rabbit from the hat' by announcing that the Jan 2011 AGM will take guild members to Oman. Just weeks after the British Guild of Travel Writers' well-advanced and ground-breaking plans to hold the AGM (normally attended by 70-90 members) in the Palestinian city of Jericho, had to be called off, Melissa and Representation Plus MD, Alison Rice, secured the invitation from Oman's Ministry of Tourism at last week's World Travel Market.

“On good days, Sylt is a lithesome figure that dances on the edge of the North Sea. A sort of nymph that guards access to Jutland behind. On dull days, Sylt just lies sullen, shrouded by charcoal cloud, and the lazy waves leave their murky flotsam on the beach. But it is on wild days that Sylt really comes alive in its watery solitude. The winter storms often bring a taste of sorrow.”

By Nicky Gardner, writing about the north Frisian island of Sylt in the March 2008 issue of hidden europe magazine (page 27). Courtesy of hidden europe magazine (www.hiddeneurope.co.uk).
