Where we really want to be right now #wishiwasreallyhere

Vaud Alps, Villars Switzerland on GlobalGrasshopper.com

We’re always up for a challenge here at Global Grasshopper headquarters so when Cosmos asked to enter their fun and slightly off-the-wall competition we were happy to oblige! The competition is about showing exactly where you want to be right now (i.e your perfect holiday destination) by getting creative with everyday items you have hanging around your house. The winning entrant will win a holiday for four people to either Ibiza, Madeira, Lanzarote or Corfu, not bad huh?

I know that during the dead of winter many people dream of sunnier climes but not me! I dream of having fun on pristine slopes dotted with snow capped pine trees – specifically Villars in Switzerland. One of the most idyllic winter holiday destinations we’ve ever seen.

So went about creating this at home. We got the whole family involved, my mum and little niece made some us snowcapped pine trees and the snowball is really a candle – I bet you really can’t tell! Ahem. The snow effect we added on afterwards. Okay it’s not quite the Swiss Alps but I think you can get the picture – almost! I have to admit it was quite a fun afternoon and we’ve also loved looking at all the other creative entries, check them out for yourself on Twitter under #wishiwasreallyhere

Fancy entering for yourself? All you have to do is depict your favourite holiday destination in a photo or a video by thinking outside the box and getting as creative as possible. You’ve got nothing to lose and you never know you might just land yourself a week’s holiday for four people!

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 40 countries on trips and living in Dublin, South East Asia and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Iceland, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
