Travel Digest - - SOCIAL SCENE -

You Travel Taupo agent Me­gan Bishop’s strat­egy to avoid brain drain, has seen her beat 200 travel agents to be named the smartest rail ex­pert in New Zealand for 2016. “My ap­proach was to study ev­ery­thing and then do all the ques­tions straight away be­cause it’s the only way to en­sure your brain re­tains all the knowl­edge,” she said. The re­ward for all her hard work – be­sides the ku­dos of be­ing named Dux of this year’s Rail Plus Global Rail Ex­pert pro­gramme – is a $1,000 Count­down voucher. This year’s run­ner up, Chris­tiana Tal­bot (You Travel Ti­maru), took home a $750 Count­down voucher, while third placed Fen­ton Ngataierua (Flight Cen­tre Queen Street, Auck­land) re­ceived a $250 voucher.
