From Arizona and Bermuda to Costa Rica and Dubai, more than five dozen travel packages — valued at $65,000 — are up for bid in the Society of American Travel Writers’ annual travel auction.
Someone named “Anonymous” currently leads the bidding on many items, but there’s still plenty of time: the SATW auction runs through Nov. 20.
As for me, I’ve got my eye on the St. Andrews golf package in Scotland or maybe the Fairmont Monte Carlo getaway. Lake Tahoe looks good, too, and New Orleans is always fun, not to mention various destinations in Colorado and Quebec. And I wouldn’t mind taking another Nile River cruise.
You can dream, too — and, of course, bid any time — at the website here.
The money raised goes to SATW’s professional development programs.
And, full disclosure: I’ve been a member of SATW since 1985, along with about 1,300 other professional travel writers and tourism industry representatives in the U.S. and Canada.
