Free Stuff: 1000 Ultimate Experiences from Lonely Planet

Winners: Laura G from OH and Joseph W from TN

Hey all, this giveaway is for two lucky winners (picked by my daughter) and ends on 2/15/10. Each will receive a beautiful new addition of 1000 Ultimate Experiences from Lonely Planet. Read on!

With 1000 Ultimate Experiences, Lonely Planet, the world’s leading travel authority, has brought together 1000 ideas, places and activities to inspire and entertain, for travelers and lovers of life-lists alike.

As Lonely Planet Founder Tony Wheeler writes in the book’s introduction:
“I’ve always had travel lists going: things I really must get around to doing, experiences I just might get around to and places that I simply cannot understand why I haven’t yet put a tick beside. 1000 Ultimate Experiences simply takes the sort of lists that I draw up and extends them in every direction.”

1000 Ultimate Experiences will inspire all types of travelers to start ticking off their own boxes of places they’ve always wanted to see and things they’ve always wanted to do, including:

— Finest Classic Train Trips: Hand the porter your luggage, climb aboard & relive the golden days of rail travel on these spectacular journeys including the Rocky Mountaineer in Canada and the Old Patagonia Express through Argentina.

— Best Ways to See Europe: Four wheels, two wheels, ferry or foot- get the continent covered whether it be via Postbus in Switzerland or canal boat in France.

— Best Places to Have Your Midlife Crisis: Looking to shake things up? Reinvent yourself and feel 25 again by getting married in Las Vegas or having a spiritual epiphany in Rishikesh, India.

— Most Beautiful Town Squares: Afresco tables prepped, people-watching skills honed, we traveled the four corners to let you in on the hippest squares such as St Mark’s in Venice and Red Square in Moscow.

— Top Travel Boasts, Myths & Legends: How do your stories measure up to this braggers’ travel guide? Have you seen a broken specter or had an international romance in Paris?
Make your own list and hit the road! Who knows where you’ll end up?
