It’s been a winning week at Matador.

News of Matador members’ wins in the Grantourismo writing competition was followed by the announcement of the winners of the latest Trazzler writing contest.

And MatadorU grad and intern Nick Rowlands was among them.

The theme of the writing contest was “City Flavor,” and Nick’s entry, “Rummaging Around Nooks and Crannies in Azbakiya Book Market, Cairo,” was the winning trip itinerary entered in the “Neighborhood Spots” category.

The prize is an expenses-paid trip to San Francisco, which is especially exciting for Nick because he’s never visited the U.S. before.

He’ll be in good company– Matador co-founders Ross Borden and Ben Polansky are based in the Bay Area, as is Matador’s San Francisco Destination Expert, Lauren Quinn.

Congratulations, Nick!
