The first trip I won was to London, England. I actually won it from the Tennis Channel. (Yes, I am an avid tennis fan, and played tennis in high school.) When I won it, I almost couldn’t believe it. But, it was true!
We stayed in the Dorchester, which I would have never been able to afford otherwise. When we got to our room, we were welcomed with a little welcome gift of wine, candies, and an Andre Agassi book. In addition to the free airfare, and the hotel stay, we also got a free behind the scenes tour of Wimbledon. It was a once in a lifetime experience.
The second was a trip to NYC and we chose to go around Christmas. Again in addition to the hotel and airfare, I also got a $1000 American Express card to spend while there and a whole day at Bliss Spa. Another once in a lifetime experience.
NYC at Christmas is something special. We got to spend time looking at the beautiful scenes in the windows, go see the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, and stroll through Central Park. (As a side note, the subway worker strike happened while we were there. We ended up walking EVERYWHERE. So, at the time, I actually didn’t see Times Square because we were staying down in SOHO, and that was quite a walk. Taxis were also price gouging at the time.)
The British Virgin Islands (BVI) was the next trip I won – it was an all-inclusive resort with plenty of activities. Again, airfare included. The BVI was more beautiful than I could ever imagine. Waking up to a tropical paradise right outside our sliding glass door was breathtaking. We had a lot of fun – we even rented a jeep and navigating driving on the opposite side of the road and hit some off the beaten path secluded beaches.
If these were too good to be true, we also got to see Switzerland. We were able to see Zurich, Bern, and Geneva… and travel between them by train. Airfare, train fare, and all three hotels were included.
The last trip was last year to NYC again. It included airfare and hotel, and also a delicious dinner at Butter, and a free culinary class. The best part, I finally got to see Times Square. (In fact, I could walk out the hotel door, and glance down the street at it!)
Not only are the vacations you win free and fun, but they are often tailored to a very customized and personal experience!
