HomeContestsWin $150 of Free Accommodation with Roomorama Micki Kosman February 12, 2013 Contests, Travel Blogs 27 1029335This contest is now closed, but we do plan on having more contests in the near future! Subscribe to our RSS feed to be notified the next time we run something! It was a tough call, however, Larissa from Changes in Latitude edged out the competition and snagged the extra entries for our favorite comment. Larissa, great use of the word fracking! Without any further ado. Here are the contest winners. First Place prize of $100 in Roomorama Accommodation Credits goes to Sofie from Wonderful Wanderings! Second Place prize of $50 in Roomorama Accommodation Credits goes to Larissa from Changes in Longitude! Thanks to all our entrants and especially Roomorama for helping us set this up. It was a fun way to kick off our European adventure and we look forward to sharing more prizes with everyone in the coming months! Original Post For the last few months, we’ve been yearning for churros con chocolate for breakfast, Turkish ice cream, Greek appetizers and walks along the Italian seashore. And now it’s almost here. We’re headed to Europe for the very first time as a family this month! No firm itinerary. No must do lists. Just the four of us, and a continent to explore. But why should we have all the fun? To celebrate our European adventures we’ve teamed up with the folks at Roomorama to give away $150 of accommodation credits. What is this wonderful and mysterious Roomorama creature, you ask? Just one of the best websites for short term apartment rentals in the whole internet. As a family, we love renting condos and apartments. We can usually get a stylish apartment with a separate bedroom or two with a full kitchen (and free WiFi!) for less than the cost of a hotel room. Check out this beauty in Madrid, our first stop. Apartment in Madrid’s Gran Via for $108/night There are two prizes up for grabs: A 1st prize of a $100 Roomorama credit A 2nd prize of a $50 Roomorama credit Open to: 18+, Worldwide Giveaway period: Starts at 12:00 am on February 12th, 2013 and continues until 12:00 am on March 5th, 2013.

Be creative. Have fun! Not sure what to say? Here’s a hint: Outrageous flattery and references to ice cream, superheroes, coffee or kitten videos are all a good way to get our attention. If you can somehow make use of the words frack, mega, monkey or banana then all the better. 🙂 So… go ahead. You know you want to… 1029335 27 Responses Travel with Bender (Erin) February 12, 2013 The great barefoot nomads who we are so blessed to have met and used all their wealth of knowledge on Playa. There is only one place where MEGA ice-cream can be found. There may be no MONKEYS, but hopefully there will still be loads of BANANAS FRACK. What the hell is FRACK? Anyway I hate COFFEE & KITTENS so we won’t be needing that, but if I could win a credit from Roomorama I’d be going straight to a stay in Italy! That would make you a SUPERHERO in my eyes 😀 And who doesn’t love a superhero? 😀 Please help me get to Italy, I need it! Then we could catch up again 😀 Travel with Bender (Erin) recently posted..Cozumel – Ferry Hell, Mexican Ferraris & Margarita Fish Bowls Travel with Bender (Erin) February 12, 2013 P.s.

They are having their wedding this June in Cartagena. For the first time in over a year, we would just love to forgo the budget hostels and give ourselves a break with a lovely stay in beautiful apartment for this special weekend (it’s my boyfriends’ lifelong friend getting married…the first of his group of friends!). $150 would go a long way here and may even pay for the whole weekends accommodation!! We also love bananas and monkeys! And Cartagena really does have the best ice-cream shop in all of Colombia! 😀 Pretty, pretty please, pick meeee (well, us!) Steph | DiscoveringIce.com recently posted..Carnaval de Negros y Blancos de Pasto, Colombia Tara G February 14, 2013 I would use it in Europe when we go this summer, probably in Greece or Italy……where we will eat bananas every morning while walking the streets since there are no monkeys to steal them from us 🙂 Tara G recently posted..I solemnly swear that I am up to no good The Weekend Traveller February 15, 2013 I recently got my Dutch nationality and my passport so I can finally travel to the United Kingdom without a visa. I would love to win a free accommodation in London. If I win, I will book a ticket right away and fly to London for the first time so I can finally wave my new passport to those immigration people who gave me the hardest time and most expensive visa fees in my visits to the UK. Thanks. Mike February 15, 2013 Paris of course! Thanks you guys! Cat of Sunshine and Siestas February 15, 2013 I may be biased, but you can totally come to Seville in Room-o-Rama and we’ll let you stay at our casa-o-rama (there are loads of dogs and a pedestrian plaza for the kids) and we’ll use the credit for a romantic night at the gorgeous hotel across from our favorite little bar. Don’t worry, we shall take you all out for ice cream at Rayas in the center as a consolation prize.

I salute you, oh great and powerful BAREFOOT-NOMAD-MAN and BAREFOOT-NOMAD-WOMAN!! I would like to MONKEY around in Istanbul. I’d go BANANAS exploring the MEGA-selection ICE CREAM at the Spice Market and Grand Bazaar, and it would be fun to haggle over prices of rugs that could be used as SUPERMAN capes. Afterward, I would sit in a cafe for the afternoon, sipping Turkish COFFEE and taking VIDEOS of all the FRACKING KITTENS running around the neighborhood. By the way, did I mention that you guys have the SUPER-EST, BEST-EST, BAREFOOT-EST blog on the internet? Oh, yeah, and YOU ROCK!!! 🙂 Larissa recently posted..Atop the Burj Khalifa the tallest building in the world Janine February 15, 2013 I’d go to Lyon, France.
