A Dream Career

Jacquelin Carnegie writes: It is a dream career, apart from the low pay. I don’t find it lonely at all. In fact, I liked it better in years past when magazines had budgets and you could organize your own trips of discovery and hand in the expense report and get reimbursed for truly exploring a place - an itinerary that you painstakingly researched, planned and embarked on on your own.
Nowadays, any magazines left don’t cover expenses (and websites certainly don’t), so you are forced to go on organized press trips, often with inflexible itineraries, and a mixed bag of other journalists.
You are lucky if the itinerary is well-planned and actually includes things you can write about. You are even luckier if the other jurnos are a nice group. If they are not, you are in for an awful week of group dynamics that overshadows any of the sights.
On a group trip, you usually get the good, the bad & the unexpected. The good-you make a new friend. The bad-one annoying person drives everybody insane. The unexpected-you visit a place or see a site you never would have discovered on your own that blows your mind.
Here’s a piece I wrote that I wish every travel pr or tourism board media-relations person would read: Tips for Making Group Trips Great - http://www.grouptripadvsior.com/2007/09/tips-for-making.html.
