I will be attending a press trip to Warsaw, Poland 27th February – 1st March 2012 with several prominent members of the travel media community. The trip is organised by the Polish National Tourist Office and escorted by Miss Agnieszka Bigaj. This is the itinerary.
I am really looking forward to this trip, it is always good to rub shoulders with the professionals within ‘new media’. The hashtag for the trip will be #EpicWarsaw, please follow the cultural adventure on twitter.
