With January weather depressing everyone (although it has been warm the last few days, that is a pretty relative term in January), I thought it would be nice to show you the places you could be. If you were rich. Since you probably aren't, the next best thing is to win a trip somewhere absolutely astonishing, so today is all about Vacations! If you missed yesterdays post, there are a couple more vacations there as well, so go check it out!
#1 Hawaii! Not to put to fine a point on it, but we're starting off the with big guns. A free trip to Hawaii sounds amazing, doesn't it? Sun, sand, swimming, relaxation, and just enjoying the fact that all your friends are still back in the cold harsh grip of winter. Budget Travel is giving away a free Hawaii trip, including airfare and six nights at a fabulous beachfront hotel. This is a single entry sweep, which is fantastic. Go take a look at it!
#2 Bermuda. Finding an international giveaway that includes full airfare seems pretty difficult, but if I see one I'll definitely post it. In the mean time, here's a great way to enter a contest and stay entered. The Reefs and Nisbet Plantation give away a free stay every month. All you have to do to enter (permanently) is subscribe to their newsletter. Best yet, the stay is a full week long and includes more than just a continental breakfast. With afternoon tea and a dinner included, this is a great way to enjoy the Island experience in full. Sign up here.
#3 Puerto Rico (or Hawaii). This one also draws for laptops and other fantastic prizes.
#4 Colorado. Not really a great destination for a winter vacation, right? Instead of sun and sand, they offer free skiing, including lessons and passes to local ski resorts. This one includes airfare as well, and great accomodations!
#5. Texas. Er, wait, what? Oh, right... The SUPERBOWL in Texas. Not that Texas isn't warm in winter, but well, y'know. Texas. Not exactly the tropical vacation of dreams, except that you can WIN FREE TICKETS to the SUPERBOWL. In Texas. This ends RIGHT AWAY, Jan 22, and requires a newsletter signup. But hey, you could win tickets to the Superbowl.
And that wraps it up.
