Solas Travel Writing Awards: TT Gets an Honorable Mention

The First Annual Solas Awards Winners were announced today and though I didn’t take home any cash, my story, “Sara Kunda: A Homecoming in the Gambia,” received a Silver Certificate in the Culture and Ideas category. The piece was based on several Tranquilo Traveler blog entries spawned by our monumental trip up the Gambia River, in search of my wife’s old Peace Corps village. The Grand Prize winning stories (from Bolivia and Spain) are published here at Best Travel Writing.
