WIN THE WORLD WINNER: Laurie Forrest is going to Ireland,

A strange number calling you could be many things: a telemarketer, wrong number, or if you’re lucky it could be me calling to tell you that you’ve won a free trip as part of our Win the World Facebook Sweepstakes. That was the case for our latest winner, Laurie Forrest, who won a free trip to Ireland.

Before I get to Laurie’s story, I want to mention that we only have one more free trip to give away. So get to our Facebook page now and enter to win — it’s your last chance! And if we reach 20,000 Facebook fans by Monday, August 6 — the last day to enter our sweepstakes — every fan of our Facebook page who has entered the contest will receive a coupon for $100 off any new trip booked with Friendly Planet.*

So, to help us reach that goal (and get a coupon for yourself), share the link to our sweepstakes on your wall. For every one of your friends who enters our sweepstakes, you’ll get an extra entry into the contest for yourself. You can also encourage your friends to enter by using the “invite friends” feature on our sweepstakes app, or by sharing our Friendly Planet Travel Facebook page using the drop-down option under our cover photo.

Now back to our Taste of Ireland winner, Laurie Forrest. I asked Friendly Planet Travel blogger Caitlin to interview Laurie about what it was like to hear that she won a free trip. Going to Ireland will be Laurie’s first trip abroad, which is perfect because she’s always wanted to travel more. It warms my heart to give this experience to a deserving individual like Laurie.

Listen in as Laurie tells us about herself, what she’s looking forward to seeing in Ireland, and who she plans on taking with her.


I look forward to calling our final winner next Tuesday, August 7. Good luck to all who have entered!
