Anytime you go on a trip — whether it’s a quick weekend getaway or a month-long mega-vacation — you’re coming home with some stories. Or you hope you are. Did you get lost in the heart of Prague and wind up meeting a wonderful stranger? Did you miss your connecting flight and spend an amazing weekend stranded in Vancouver?
TravelShark — an online travel company — loves hearing these travel stories. In fact, they love them so much that they recently launched a social media contest called Trip in a Tweet and are inviting the known universe to share their best travel tales in 140 characters or fewer.
To sweeten the deal, TravelShark will be awarding a weekly prize to their favorite “tweet.” The prizes aren’t the usual swag, either. They include things like a Canon EOS Rebel T3 Digital Camera, an iPad, and a Garmin GPS. That’s a pretty good return on a 140-character investment.
Trip in a Tweet kicked off last week, and they’ll be announcing different themes every Tuesday for as long as people seem to be having fun with them.
This week’s theme is Your Purest Moment of Travel Joy
So, if you have the perfect story for a pure moment of travel joy, visit the Trip in a Tweet homepage for details on entering the contest (anyone can enter, even if they don’t have a Twitter account).
This week’s winner will take home a new iPad!
