Got an email yesterday from a friend in Bay Area Travel Writers congratulating me on winning a Solas Award. My response: "Thanks, but I didn't know I'd won!" (Ironically, the last time I won a Solas, I found out the very same way.)
The Solas Awards are doled out by the good folks at Traveler's Tales; mine was for a piece I wrote for Alister & Paine magazine about a visit to a Russian bathhouse. This year's full list of winners is at www.besttravelwriting.com/award-winners-2011/.
