  1. I would like to win this book because travel books are one of my favorite things to peruse when looking for inspiration.

  2. I have a passion for travel and there are so many more places to go and see. It truly makes me happy. I don’t want to live life with regrets. Every time I go to Barnes & Noble, I head to the travel section.

    “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”

  3. I would like to win this book because my “vacation here someday” list is a mile long and I have the hardest time deciding what to do first. This book would probably help make the decision easier!

  4. I’d love to compare it with the places I’ve been to already and learn more about some of the places I haven’t been to yet.

  5. I would love to win this book because I’m currently an “armchair traveler” while saving up for my next trip. I love reading different kinds of travel writing, seeing how authors describe different places, and daydreaming about trips that I’d like to take.

  6. Traveling is not only my passion, but something I love sharing with others. It would be a great opportunity to learn about the most beautiful places in the world, add them to my bucket list, and share with my friends & followers!

  7. I haven’t traveled much in my life. I don’t have the best economic situation. Still, I have an incredible, passionate, and insatiable wanderlust and desire to experience what every culture offers. It may not be a roundtrip ticket around the world but the pages of this book could take me to places otherwise known – a trip of its own.

  8. I am a passionate traveler and have been lucky enough to do an amazing amount of travel in my time. However, I have had to clip my wings recently in order to move cross-country to take a new job and to study for the California Bar exam. Well, I’m fairly settled in now, and I’ll be done with the exam in less than a week, so I would love to win the book in order to get some inspiration for my next great adventure!

  9. It’s my job to send people to amazing places around the world! I would love to have this book for inspiration!

  10. “I haven’t been everywhere yet, but it’s on my list.” (Susan Sontag) I’m ready to go!

  11. I want to win this book because I am quitting my job to travel. I need to explore the world, challenge myself both emotionally and physically, and ultimately, learn more about different cultures.

  12. I would love a copy of this book because I am planning some packpack camping trips around the globe. It would give me some helpful tips.

  13. I would like this book because it lists Southwind Adventures as a resource for travel to the Inti Raymi festival in Cusco, Peru. What an honor!
