Travel Giveaway: See the World with NatGeo and Wyndham

Today at How to Travel for Free, Keith and I are opening a new Travel Giveaway contest! The contest is to introduce a new book by National Geographic, and Wyndham Worldwide’s fabulous Women on Their Way program. (Note: This contest is now closed)

NatGeo’s latest book, 100 COUNTRIES, 5,000 IDEAS: Where to Go, When to Go, What to See, What to Do offers suggestions for the must-see and must-do in 100 destinations from Alaska to Thailand to Madagascar. It’s a large-format, lavishly illustrated, softcover travel planner zeroes in on the top 100 most fascinating places. Each country is thoroughly reported on and vetted —from Brazil, Belgium, and Bulgaria to Thailand, Turkey, and Tanzania —describing each country’s highlights and ideas on what to do there. Valuable reader service sets this book apart, including a section that helps travelers select a destination based on their interests—whether they’re looking for a three-week dream vacation, a weekend excursion, or something in between. The contest winner receives a free copy of this book!

But that’s not all – Women on Their Way by Wyndham Worldwide is providing the means for the winner to visit one of the 100 Places of their choice. Wyndham is awarding 75,000 Wyndham Rewards loyalty points – this is enough for 3 nights at a top, all-inclusive Tier 5 property; or up to 12 nights at a Tier 1 property! So you can check out Hong Kong or Jamaica, New York or Tunisia. Wyndham’s Women on Their Way program is the longest-running branded program entirely dedicated to female travelers. It’s an online resource for business and leisure travelers to find everything they need to plan and book their next trip.

So, how do you win this fabulous Giveaway? It’s pretty simple – just complete the steps below:

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."

  20. Thanks for sharing this site. I have liked both on Facebook and shared also. What a great opportunity this would be for a novice such as I. My dream, if I won this trip, would be to travel to Greece or Bali to explore the Islands. I have recently rediscovered my passion for photography and have explored the idea of being a travel writer! Being involved for so long with film there were challenges to overcome going to digital. My passion has allowed me to develop a style that I never thought possible. As one explores different regions there is much to learn from the locals who live there and I would be honored to share my experience with the world! Oh, BTW, today is my birthday, so maybe I will be lucky!!

  31. And our winner of this FABULOUS giveaway by Wyndham’s Women on their Way program and National Geographic is….Bianca! We hope this will enable you and your husband to visit Tahiti before your baby arrives!

    The NatGeo book “100 Countries 5000 Ideas” says of Tahiti:
    “Tahitian women, the emerald ocean, and the perfume of Tahitian flowers may linger in one’s mind – reinforced by the influence of painter Paul Gauguin. The beauty of this earthly paradise, with its 118 islands, remains.”

    Congratulations Bianca – I hope the rest of you will continue to follow up for upcoming Travel Giveaways, and of course our insider methods and resources for Traveling Free – or pretty damn near it!

    Posted on FB. My husband and I are high school sweethearts and just celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. We have 4 beautiful children, 2 of which have special needs, but we wouldn’t change our lives for a minute! The only thing we wish we had gotten was a honeymoon! We would love to go to either the Bahamas or Italy.

    I posted on Facebook, and I would love to go to Greece, specifically to see Athena’s temple. My reasoning behind that is because I grew up in a not so great area, and my schooling really lacked in teaching us to read or write. I was far behind most of my classmates because of it, until I discovered Greek mythology. I got so into it that I forced myself to learn words I knew no meaning of. Now I’m a University Graduate, the first in my family and I kind of have always attributed that to the Greek myths. So that is why it’s my number one place, and Athena being the Goddess of Wisdom also seems very fitting. Also I have my own youtube cooking show, so it would be awesome to learn how to cook authentic Greek dishes.
