St. Lawrence News


Dawn Severenuk '90 is the winner of the 2008 Saab-Salomon Women Will competition in Spain, and will be creating and documenting the first cycle tourism route to cross Spain as a result.

Severenuk works as a journalist and travel writer in Madrid. The Saab-Salomon Women Will contest is an international initiative founded by Salomon Sports, aimed at women throughout the world. Throughout the spring and summer of 2007, women from all over the world sent in their proposals. The proposals were evaluated by judges, on behalf of the brand, and both the national and international winners receive prizes that allow them to carry out their dream adventures. Severenuk's project, called "The Trans-Iberian Express Route," is a five-week trip across the Iberian Peninsula.

She reports, "Between Easter Sunday and April 25 of this year, I'll be leading a group of cycle tourists on a 1200-mile journey through central Spain. We'll head through some of the most beautiful, emblematic places in Spain, charting and documenting the trip; and once it's done, we'll post a free, downloadable travel guide on the Internet.

A native of Canada, Severenuk earned her St. Lawrence degree in theater, participating in the University's program of study in London. She was also an Augsbury/North Country Scholar.

Severenuk is documenting her project in an Internet blog.
