Liz's 15 years of long service trip

Here is my first reaction when I saw a great post on Urban Sketchers today.

Liz Steel, Urban Sketcher from Australia, also an architect, earned herself a long service trip from July to Oct 2010 this year. She worked for the same company for 15 years to earn the trip. How about people like me who work for 20 years at the same place at June this year? Ok, some may say I get to go to Portland but that was not after I had to apply for it by submitting a paper to justify my trip and the paper was vetted by 3 levels of authorities at my workplace. In addition, the trip was partly sponsored by the the symposium organizer as I was invited to be one of the international presenters. Really happy for Liz.
