Recognition by Luxury Travel colleagues

Recognition by Luxury Travel colleagues  |  Carlos Melia  |  WOW what an amazing way to begin my weekend….. I feel so proud to have received these comments from three professional colleagues, whom I respect and follow. They called me ” a luxury travel curator “, ” to express nice and meaningful words, which are very important and should always be followed as a rule in travel business ” and finally ” I think it’s time to cancel my subscription to Conde Nast Traveler and Travel and Leisure. I now get all my important travel information from Carlos Meli’s blogs “. Thank you, all three for empowering and motivating me to carry on with my work. Always important to be recognized by peers in such a competitive environment. Have a lovely weekend everyone. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
