February is the shortest month of the year yet, at TravelMedia.ie we managed to fit in quite a lot – from road shows, media events and everything in between. So, read on to hear what we got up to during the month that is known for Valentine’s Day and is also the lucky host of National Pizza Day…

To clarify – Dani is on the right in the picture below.
We had coffee with…
During his time in London, Michael sipped on some great coffee with some even greater company. Including, Panos and Emy from the Greece NTB, Kate and Katie from Lotus as well as the Moroccan NTB and Thai Airways.
Our food find of the month…
To say the TravelMedia.ie team are excited about our latest food find would be an understatement. Lucky Tortoise specialises in modern dim sum made from scratch. It’s situated on Aungier Street, just around the corner from TravelMedia.ie Towers. After our first visit, the ‘tortoise temptation’ became too strong and we simply had to go back for a second time. We recommend the ‘All In’ – you get the entire Dim Sum menu and sides which comes in at a tasty steal at just €11 a head.
Now that February’s come and gone, we’re looking forward to all that March has to offer…
March 14th An Evening with Oman Tourism
