Africa again?

Kate. You scared me.

You know,

you do that a lot.

Well, occupational


We work at

a travel magazine

and we're stuck in these

tiny little cubicles.

I mean, come on,

can't you picture it?

Me, in a safari hat,

one of those cute little vests,

and those amazing

knee-high boots,

just hanging

with the elephants.

Mm, if only in your dreams.

Well, at least

I can dream, can't I?

Do you really want

to quit your job?

No-- well, no.

But I am planning my escape

from this copy editing desk.

I am a writer, remember?

At least you're editing

the "World's Best" articles.

Could be worse.

Could be me.

Apparently, this was

also a landfill.

Plastic is single-handedly

destroying our planet.

Okay. Everybody, gather around.

So, it's been a great quarter,

and that is thanks,

in large part,

to the incredible

hard work and dedication

of you fine people.

But... as the magazine grows,

so does our audience.

Which is why, this year...

Around the World Travel

is looking to expand

our travel writing team.

We're hoping to find

a fresh voice,

a new perspective,

so I am accepting story pitches

from anyone on staff.


here's the exciting part.

Whoever writes

the best travel article

wins a first-class ticket

to anywhere in the world...

[gasping collectively]

...And the cover story

in our next issue,

as well as an ongoing position

as a staff travel writer.

Deadline is a week from Monday.

Here's your chance.

Get in there!

Oh, Kate,

the last time

I pitched a story

to McHugh,

he gave me the old

"That's not quite

right for us, Alex,"

and sent me

back to my desk.

That was then!

You heard him, they're looking

for a new writer.

Second chances.

Alex, go, go, go!

You really think so?


Whew. Okay.

Mr. McHugh? Sir?

Do you have a moment?

Walk with me, Alex.

I just think it's

such a great idea,

what you're doing,

about the contest.

Thank you.

Is that all?

Uh, n-no.

I would love to enter it.

As a writer.


What'd you have in mind?

In mind?

Uh... well--

Off the top of my head,

I could, uh...

I could write about

this romantic New England B&B

that I went to recently,

that is classic and decadent,

and, um...

did I mention romantic?

It's nice to see you

taking initiative, Alex,

and you're a very valuable asset

to our copy editing team,

but travel writers,

they go off the beaten path,

they come outside

of their comfort zone.

You really think that's you?

Yes, sir.

I mean, pretty much...


Travel writers

are courageous, Alex,

they'll try anything.

Each story reveals

a part of their soul,

taking the reader

on an inner- and outer-journey.


not a romantic B&B then?

Think bigger.




There you two are!

Join us.

We have been summoned.


you look lovely.

Oh, thank you,


Alex, so nice to see you.

Nice to see you, too,

Mrs. Kane, Mr. Kane.

Thank you so much

for having me.

Of course.

I always say,

call me "Bitty".

Right. Sorry. Bitty.

As I was saying...

the Raven's House

is looking to expand

its charity program

this year.

And, between that

and the Kanes' Foundation,

we've raised nearly $2 million

for "Paws for Peace."


Alex, you should really

volunteer with us.

You've been

such a big help in the past.

You know

I'd love to, Bitty,

thank you so much

for asking,

but there's actually

this opportunity

coming up at work.

My editor at Around

The World Travel magazine

They're looking

for a new travel writer.
