Shelley’s India story wins in Intrepid Travel Writing contest

Last fall, Beth Whitman of Wanderlust and Lipstick ran a travel writing contest, in conjunction with Intrepid Travel. I entered several pieces, including one about my experience taking my daughter to India a couple of years ago. This story is called “Lost and Found,” and it was the contest winner in the Women’s Travel Category! The 6 judges had a lot of really wonderful stories from which to choose, making their job very difficult. All in all, there were about 250 entries from around the globe!

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
