I am currently in the running to win a sponsored trip to Kerala, India. The top 25 travel bloggers with the most votes by January 10 will get to go on a two week trip via coach bus from Kasaragod in the north to Trivandrum in the south of one of India’s most interesting states, often known as God’s Own Country. At the end of the trip is a Meet Up of the winning bloggers and local writers, which sounds like an amazing way to learn about India from a local perspective and make great new connections. The trip is sponsored by Kerala Travel, so I’m sure the winners will get to see the absolute best the region has to offer. Another exciting aspect is that the Travel Bureau will be taking input from the winners when designing the itinerary. If I’m lucky enough to be one of the winners, I’ll be looking for tips from all my readers who have been to India.
If I win, you’ll be getting a heck of a lot more blog posts, photos, tweets, Facebook updates and instagram updates all about my travels. I have never been to India and it has always been on my list, so this would be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Of course, my opinions will all be my own, (like anyone ever thought I could resist the urge to speak my mind!) If I win, I want to hook up with the local chapter of Hollaback! to learn more about their street harassment reality, and how the atmosphere has changed in the wake of several high profile sexual assaults. I would also love to learn more about the languages and religions of India, as well as its long history, and what makes Kerala different from the other Indian states.
If you have a minute, please vote for me here by logging in with your facebook account. Unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be a way to vote without facebook. Thanks so much for your support, and I hope I’m in the top 25!
