We are exhilarated to announce that two stories published on Wanderlust in the past year have been honored with awards in the 2019 Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition.

SATW’s Lowell Thomas Competition is widely recognized as the premier travel journalism competition in North America. This year’s contest attracted 1,335 entries and was judged by the journalism faculty at the University of Missouri. In addition to Wanderlust, other multiple-award-winning publications this year included Outside, National Geographic Traveler, Afar, and The New York Times.

“We’re thrilled that Wanderlust has been recognized by SATW for the second year in a row,” said GeoEx Chief Executive Officer Jean-Paul Tennant. “Many travel companies have blogs, but we think Wanderlust stands out amongst the crowd. The creativity and literary quality of the articles Don and his extended team have been able to pull together for Wanderlust is impressive. We wanted our blog to hit the same high standards that we aspire to for each and every GeoEx trip. Thanks to Don, we think we have done that.”

The two Wanderlust stories that were singled out as winners in the 2019 SATW Competition were:

Best Cultural Tourism Article: Andrew Van Wey, “Keyboard Dreams: Observing a Virtual Rite of Passage in Korea”

Best Article on Foreign Travel: Anne Sigmon, “Hemingway, Cuba & Me”

We are grateful to Andrew, Anne, and all of our travel writers for gracing us with their eloquent, insightful, and inspiring words, and we’re grateful to you, our readers, for supporting the work that we do and for infusing the world with your own wanderlust.

We look forward to sharing more worldly adventures and reflections in the year to come!
