Here are some of the things we like to hear about:
• Smells and sounds (or lack there of)• Tastes (what did you eat? how did you make your meal?)• Activities (what unique activities does this property offer?)• Nearby attractions (parks, trails, world's largest chair, etc.)• Pit stops on the way in/out (must-see thrift stores, delicious diners, secret viewpoints)• Good-to-know's (good spots to pick up firewood, best time of day to arrive, scenic routes)
Don't be afraid to use bullet points or lists when applicable.
• 700 to 1000 words (suggested)• 2 or more title suggestions• 5 or more photos from your trip (don't be shy!)• Write your report in a Google Doc• Embed your images within this Google Doc in the locations you'd like them to appear in the post• Add a [square] profile picture at the bottom of your draft with a bio• Include captions under your images that explain what we're looking at
