Travel Department recently celebrated 20 years in business with a competition asking for your most memorable Travel Department experiences such as stories, poems, photos, videos or original artwork. We were completely overwhelmed by the volume of entries, and delighted to see how many positive and even life-changing encounters are experienced on our holidays.
We received stories of new friendships, anniversaries and reunions, blossoming romances, adventures in far-off lands and too many more to mention, accompanied by striking photographs, montages, poetry and even one oil painting!
It was a tough job for our judges to whittle the entries down to a short list of 21, before opening up voting to the public. It was a close race, but in the end we were thrilled to announce Niamh Buckey as the winner of the fantastic prize of a €2,000 holiday voucher for this lovely photo, taken in front of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow's Red Square.
