Amy Palfreyman, winner of our 2010 Writing Scholarship is back from her assignment with 'The Rough Guide to Japan' travel guide and has a lot to be excited about.

Amy thrived on this challenge and mentor, Simon Richmond was so impressed by her work that she has been put forward to do more work for Rough Guides in the near future.

I defy you not to giggle your way thru Amy’s blog The Way the Nori Rolls as she takes us through her mind-boggling busy 11 day journey from Tokyo around Honshu and culminating in the Intrepid Travel's "Flavours of Tokyo" tour. 

Amy serves up the whacky experiences you could only expect from Japan: drinks being served “French style” by a man who later changes into frog suit; a hot spring theme park, where people pay to get naked and watch fish feed off their skin; and of course, her gastronomical undertakings involving miso ice-cream, bee larvae, fish sperm and lizards on sticks. 

Well done Amy!  We look forward to hearing how your career in travel writing progresses.
