IF you've ever dreamed of aspiring to what seems the dream life of a travel writer, a sailing aboard the luxury mega motor-cruiser SeaDream I in the Mediterranean this October will have one of Australia's most prolific travel writers aboard – and he'll be more than happy to chat with you about how you may realise your dream.
Ian McIntosh has been writing travel for Australia's major newspapers and magazines for 45 years from what started as a working holiday travelling from Venice to Bergen, and found him being appointed Travel Editor of his newspaper in Adelaide on his return home.
He'll be sailing aboard SeaDream I from Rome's port of Civitavecchia to Cannes on the French Riviera this October 22, a full week on this world's highest-rated boutique passenger vessel that will visit Sorrento, Capri, have an overnight and a full day in Bonifacio on Corsica, and also have a day each in Calvi and St Tropez.
And while Ian will happily share tips on how to possibly achieve your travel-writing dream, you'll no doubt be interested in chatting with his wife too – she's Fiona McIntosh, one of Australia's most successful authors with some 30 novels to her credit, and more in the pipeline.
Price of this sailing that will give you the opportunity to meet and get writing tips from both Ian and Fiona McIntosh in personal get-togethers, begins from US$4926pp twin-share. And this includes premium drinks from the open bars, wines at lunch and dinner, power and sail water-sports where locally permitted, a 30 international course golf simulator, onboard gratuities, and Government charges and taxes.
