We won!! After two months of nominations, voting and judging panels, those lovely folks at Lonely Planet have declared World in Slow Motion the winners of the Best Travelogue Award.
Many thanks to all of you who gave us your support and votes.
For those of you interested in the technicalities, we came second in the public vote (with a whopping 1,189 votes - more than the winner in some categories), scoring 7/10 points, and first in the judges decision, scoring 10/10 points, giving us a grand total of 17/20 points.

We're so pleased that people out there like this blog and are dead chuffed for our work to be recognised; it makes for a nice ending to our trip.
There are just three weeks until we're back in the land of tea and crumpets. But before then there are plenty more stories to tell...
