Well she did not disappoint - Marie was an absolute delight to work with, she participated with 'gusto' in all activities arranged during her visit, and her descriptions of Christmas Island in the resulting articles were an absolute delight to read. Her descriptions were honest, humorous and above all were written with true feeling. I would highly recommend Marie to any destination looking for a freelance journalist who absolutely delivers on her promise."
