Hola from Puerto Rico!

Hello from Puerto Rico!

You might remember from last August that I was invited by Diamond PR to go on a press trip to Puerto Rico to participate in their “Vloggers in Paradise” trip. Myself and 5 other “vloggers” Kelley Ferro, Ryan Van Duzer, Josh Johnson, Matt Stabile and JD Andrews were given the task of taking one day and filming a video about Puerto Rico and the San Juan Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino. The following day we had to edit our videos and screen them that night in a film festival at the hotel. It was a fast paced whirl wind of a trip and happily I won a prize at the film festival for “Best Inclusion of the Hotel” and I then later won (with help from all of you) the online Facebook vote with the prize of a three night stay back at the San Juan Marriott in Puerto Rico! Here is my winning video:

However that trip just kept on winning. Last weekend I was flown to New York to attend the “Adrian Awards” put on by HSMAI with the other vloggers, Diamond PR and Julian the hotels Director of Marketing and Sales to help them accept their Gold Award for Public Relations Excellence, which they won for our initial press trip! So cool!

Vloggers in New York! #Winning !!

Since I was going to be in New York, slightly closer to Puerto Rico then home with cheaper flights I figured why not use this opportunity to fly down to Puerto Rico and use my free stay. I am now writing you from my awesome room over looking the beach at the San Juan Marriott, nursing a little bit of a sun burn but loving life.

What else could you ask for? :)

Have you ever been to Puerto Rico?
