On a deadline

Above is a South African travel magazine which I received while at home recently

In May last year  South African Pet Travel Agency, Global Paws, Johannesburg,  asked me to write an editorial alongside their advert in a travel magazine. Of course, having already had quite a bit of experience with taking pets from one country to another, I agreed. My sweet friend, Kay of Alberta kindly edited the story for me. It ultimately appeared in the "Winter" edition of the magazine. I was not at home to buy it but the chief consultant at Global Paws sent a copy on to our address in Marquard. 

Inside the magazine was an editorial I had written on pet travel

At the moment I'm working on a deadline on a story for an adventure magazine in South Africa. I've been writing for them since January 2011 and thoroughly enjoy the experience. The sub-editor of this magazine also sent me copies of the magazines in which my stories appeared. (Due to weight restrictions in my luggage on the plane, I left these at home!) 

So for now it's back to my document to continue my story...

  1. I couldn't think of anyone with more experience than you with moving pets across the borders. Good job!

  2. Joyful is right ! you are a specialist in cat movings, lol ! Very nice to write articles !

  3. Glad you are back. Congrats on you magazine. Do you have to burn mid night oil to beat the deadline?

  4. Congrats on your pet article, you certainly do have experience with that.

  5. Keep up the good work, Jo! Your articles are in demand, I see.

  6. Yes, from reading of your experience moving the cats from Kenya to Mwadui I could tell that you had some experience. For me - that would be a most formidable task but you made it look and sound so easy. CONGRATULATIONS on all your writing assignments, Jo!

  7. You have to be one of the world's experts on pet travel, Jo. No wonder they bought your article. Writing for travel magazines is a great career for you.
