Today we had a full day tour and mine was on the Chocolate Tour – can you blame me?
We got to go behind the scenes of The Best Chocolate in Town shop and learn the art behind making truffles. It’s a lot harder than you would think! My group was fantastic, and we really had a blast.
Then, we went to the Conrad Hotel for a chocolate inspired lunch and finally went up to the spa to get a little chocolate pampering: massage and pedicures.
Now, I know that doesn’t sound like much journalism – but it was because all of the freelancers in my group were taking photos, recording, asking questions and jotting down notes so they could go back later and write stories. It was so beneficial to hear the kinds of questions they asked and how they gathered the information for their articles – plus being in the small groups really helped to get to know everyone.
