I met Carmel around 2005 at various Travel Writing associations and then hosted her and her family on several subsequent press trips to the travel tourism destination that I represented.
She always conducted herself professionally & produced excellent media coverage for our destination so it was a pleasure to invite her back several times over the years.
As time went on, we became friends and she was very instrumental in coaching me through comping my own trip to Ireland which was the adventure of a lifetime.
I even ended up placing a story about it in one of Carmel’s online publications. I highly recommend Carmel’s instruction in comping/Travel Writing. Her focus is professionalism and integrity and I wish more travel writers, bloggers, and vloggers would learn from her.
