Today we bring you:
Brought to you from Johnny Jet, this contest runs through May 1 and gives you the opportunity to win two nights in a Four Seasons suite, dinner for two at the elegant and mouth-watering Café Boulud (from one of the fore-most French chefs in the world, Daniel Boulud), and a couple’s spa treatment.
If you do not have a penny to your name, would you still be able to go off and see the world (or even the next town down the road) fueled simply by your courage alone? It is doubtful that you would be able to walk up to the Virgin Atlantic counter at LAX and secure a flight to Europe with nothing but a smile, but if you have the courage to get out there and take chances, you just might figure out a way to make your travel dreams a reality.
Tell us where you’ve traveled and what you’ve loved (or not), and you might win one of two outstanding trips for two. This year our sweepstakes’ grand prize is a three-night stay at the One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico. If you’re dreaming of a trip farther afield, Qantas, Qualia, and Tourism Australia have put together this year’s first prize, which includes two round-trip tickets to Australia and three nights at Qualia on Hamilton Island.
Recently the New York Times published a spring break article highlighting spring break destinations recommended by three different travel agencies. One tackles Budget travel (about $4500), but the other two took on moderate ($9000+) and splurge (sky’s the limit) budgets on a trip. I was horrified, along with several other traveling families, to find what one agent thought $4500 could buy a family of four. In an effort to dispel this idea that $4500 was the minimum you could spend on a week of “budget” travel, I asked other traveling families to chime in with their budgets for recent trips. Our hope is that you won’t limit yourselves to canned trips to theme parks, but you will look outside the box.
Happy travels, and dreaming about travel!
