Every week or two I will share a post titled “PR and travel news” – which is intended to be a roundup of recent stories and reports by media and influencers covering travel, hospitality, food and industry trends.
It is not meant to be an exhaustive list of everything being published. These are stories that have caught my attention as I scan and read throughout the week.
