  1. This comes as no surprise to me after reading so many of your articles. Congratulations to all involved .

  2. Congratulations Paul, I think one of the key strengths of your blog is that it not only focuses on the traditional luxury destinations but also includes lesser known regions and highlights their potential within the upscale travel segment.

  3. Congratulations Paul. I can see how hard you work and the content on the site is excellent. A well deserved honour.

  4. Congratulations Paul – well deserved and ‘A Luxury Travel Blog’ really lives up to it’s name. I’ve saved lots of articles for inspiration and help on our trips in the future. Thank you.

  5. Congratulations Paul, as the pioneer of all luxury travel blogs, this award is so well-deserved! Safe travels!

  6. Congratulations Paul. You deserve the honor, no doubt! I’ve been an avid reader and recently opened my own travel blog. I hope to achieve the same status as you one day – I would settle for a less lucrative award and 10% of your following, in all honesty.

  7. Well deserved Paul. I’ve read quite a few travel blogs in my time. Yours is one I’ve had bookmarked for a while. Congrats!
