What exactly are we looking for?
Your out-of-the-ordinary experience might be unbelievably good, bad, or unusual. It could be an amazing bargain, insane road trip, bizarre flight, special destination, hotel/attraction/restaurant from heaven or hell, or something along similar lines. We’re looking for brevity – no more than a sentence or two. We’ll give extra points to submissions that include destination or property names. And lastly, focus on the travel part more than the personal. For example:
Not so good
My daughter got engaged on family trip to Hawaii – love the fiancé! He’s so cute, she’s so cute, together they are SO CUTE!
Family trip to Oahu, HI. Daughter’s fiancé proposes volcano-side. Right after, volcano blows! She yelled yes running from lava.
