Earlier this year, I went to London to meet up with Judy Bennett from Guurbi Tours and Cindy Eve from 3 Days In London. Judy was over for Christmas and New Year from Australia and we didn’t get to meet up last year, so made a point of putting dates in the diary that weren’t to be moved!
We met up at Covent Garden and found a lovely restaurant in King Street to sit and be ladies what lunch :-) The restaurant was with the African Centre and was called Poolof Pot. Great place, great food and great atmosphere. The three of us would all recommend it.
The sites of twitter and facebook led us to meet up and become friends. Social marketing is a very powerful tool and the travel community is just delightful. We are indeed fortunate to meet many of our colleagues in this industry of ours. And that is the difference between the UK and Australia – here we can arrange to meet and do so, as the distances are not prohibitive But later, when we were travelling in Australia, Judy had returned home to Queensland, there was no way we could work it out to meet up. Next time.
