    Thanks for the websites. The Sosauce Travel Internship seems interesting. Too bad I did not know about it sooner. I would be interested in a socially conscious travel experience. It would be writing about the same old, same old destination articles. Those aren’t for me. I prefer articles that have substance to them and that make me think. But that’s just me.
