As many of you now know, I am completing my PR internship this summer with Bay of Quinte Tourism in Belleville. What you may not know, though, is how awesome this internship is. I have so many opportunities to interact with the community, explore cool places and learn new things every day. One of these amazing opportunities arose today.
Just last night, I landed back in the good old 6ix, getting back from my trip with the Durham College Public Relations program to Chicago, Illinois. This trip has been in the works for the program since September 2015 and was planned by our program coordinator and the seven chair members. As documentation chair, I was required to create, distribute and organize all paperwork for the trip to ensure it went smoothly, so I was quite happy when the trip finally arrived, but now I am sad it is over!
Brighton to Napanee, Prince Edward County to Madoc. The Bay of Quinte area houses these fantastic communities, and all of those in between. As many of you know, I get the amazing opportunity to be the Tourism Marketing Intern with Bay of Quinte Tourism this summer, but I have loved the area long before I snagged my placement here. The Bay of Quinte area has been my bae since I was a wee little seven-year-old, when I moved to the area.
Do you ever find yourself sitting at home, in class or at work thinking about your last vacation? How long ago it was, or how you’ve never taken one? Have you been itching to experience something new but just don’t have the money or the ability to take off for weeks at a time? I’ve been in your exact spot. I am a busy student, I work part time and I am pretty strapped for cash and I am constantly having to flick the travel bug off of my shoulder. But my travel bug repellent is pretty effective – it is a staycation.
