DREAMING ABOUT SCANDINAVIA
Maybe it is because of this string of hot-hot-hot weather we’ve been having in Arizona, but I’m thinking about northern climes–Scandinavian countries come to mind. I’ve spent quality time in Sweden, and a bit of time in Finland, but still have not made my dream trip to Norway’s fjords or the charms of Denmark.
It is possible that I can win a trip at this fascinating site about Scandinavia. And maybe you can, too. To win an I-pod and other goodies, submit a travel story. To win a trip to Scandinavian on Iceland Air, just comment on one of the stories you’ll find at the site.
Deadline: JULY 13 (HURRY!)
If you need some inspiration for travel to Scandinavia, here are some past articles from A Traveler’s Library.
Norway: Nemesis by Jo Nesbo, my very favorite mystery writer.
Ken and me with Swedish friends at Sweden/Norway border
Uh-oh, nothing from Denmark. (Need recommendations, please)
FLY TO GREECE
This contest somewhat misleadingly says fly to your favorite Greek island and then offers a choice of Athens, Crete or Mykonos for your five-day/four-night stay. But, hey, ANYPLACE in Greece is fine with me, even if Athens is not an island, and my favorite island of Siphnos is not a choice. Besides, the contest is sponsored by Voskos Greek yogurt–always a GOOD thing, and a food I associate strongly with Greek islands. Check out the Facebook Page of Voskos Greek Yogurt.
Deadline: July 31
ANOTHER TRIP GIVEAWAY
HomeAway is celebrating its 20th anniversary (they also own VRBO, y’know.). Go to their website to learn how to win a $5000 vacation rental and airfare for FOUR–or nineteen other nifty travel prizes–adding up to Twenty–get it?
Deadline: August 12
WANT MORE CHANCES TO WIN A TRIP?
Travel Onion, a consolidator of Travel Blogs, offers a page with travel contests. Good stuff!
Like contests? Do you enter on-line contests? Ever win a trip somewhere? Those that came with “winner must participate in a seminar on time shares” does not count.
And how about Denmark literature–suggestions??
