The winner of our Exotic Ecuador tour at the 2012 Philadelphia Inquirer Travel Show

I had a great time at The Philadelphia Inquirer Travel Show this past weekend. One of the most exciting parts of the show was giving away our Exotic Ecuador tour to one of the attendees.

Hundreds of people put their names into our giant globe at the booth. Now that I’m back at my desk, it’s time for the big reveal. We’ve randomly selected one attendee. Drum roll please. And the winner is … Philip Justice from Philadelphia.

Look out for an email from me soon with all the details on how to claim your prize, when to plan your trip, my advice for what to pack, and more. I’m sure you’ll have a great time. Thanks to all attendees for entering!

A trip to The Philadelphia Inquirer Travel Show could win you a trip to Ecador

You might have thought we were putting all our metaphorical eggs in one basket when we announced that we’re giving away six Friendly Planet Travel tours to our Facebook fans, but we have something up our sleeves for Philadelphia locals too.

If you go to The Philadelphia Inquirer Travel Show at The Pennsylvania Convention Center this weekend, you have the chance to win a trip for two on Friendly Planet Travel’s Exotic Ecuador tour, a $3,000 value.

Friendly Planet Travel will be exhibiting at booth #416, where you can enter to win our trip to Ecuador. The Friendly Planet Travel team and I will be at the booth answering questions, offering travel tips and advice, and distributing information too, so there will be a lot going on. All you have to do is stop by for your chance to win! This is the second year in a row we’re giving away a trip to travel show attendees. Last year, we gave a trip to China to Larry and Wendy Kleeman. See their reactions!

I’m also honored to be presenting at the show again this year. I’ll be discussing the “Top 10 Affordable Destinations of 2012” on Sunday, Jan. 15 at 12 p.m. I’ll share the must-visit destinations for 2012 that promise to inspire even savvy travelers, without breaking the bank. And I’m proud to be the only local tour operator licensed to offer legal educational tour programs to Cuba, so I’ll delve into how to visit Cuba legally and at an affordable price.

All this, and entrance to the show only costs $10 ($8 if you pre-register)! I’m looking forward to sharing my advice and talking to travelers in person, so I hope I’ll see you there!
