Overseas trips are one of the perks that sometimes come a journalist’s way.
I was offered one today. But it was only two weeks into the future. It is simply impossible for a self employed person to take a week out of their business on two weeks’ notice. It’s even harder to make the case to a parent!
So if you want to offer me a trip, can I have at least a month’s notice? That makes it possible I’ll attend. Two weeks makes it impossible.
