Welcome to my weekly travel competition round up! One of the major reasons I’m where I am today with my blog and maybe even in life (and no, I’m not being melodramatic for once!) is because I won a travel competition two and a half years ago. Granted, the competition in question wasn’t your run of the mill ‘Click HERE and you could win!’’ kind of competitions, and I did have to work hard through three different stages to be victorious, but victorious I was. I won a 4 month trip around the world as a Travel Reporter for the international company, SPAR. 4 months, all expenses paid. Boom. (Read about the experience here. Spoiler: It was as awesome as it sounds.) Here’s a picture of me doing my obligatory SPAR poses in Rome. Before this momentous win, I never entered competitions – apart from the Lottery… which I guess is a competition of sorts. But anyway, I never thought there was any point. That was until I won. And I won big, my friends. So here’s a list of some of the top travel competitions and giveaways going on in the world at the minute. You never know – you might get as lucky as me and get some amazing once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, too! Or something less life-changing, but great nonetheless. The power of optimism. Good luck!
