  1. I live in West Yorkshire, England at the minute–but that’s my boyfriend’s home! Soon I’ll be heading back to my hometown in good ol’ Southern Illinois. It’s so hard to pick a favorite travel destination because every place has its own special spark… but if pressed I’d say off the radar somewhere in Cambodia! Relaxation is key!

    • We both love Yorkshire! I am from just across the Pennines in Lancashire (Ramsbottom to be exact) and love exploring the Dales. Heard a lot of great things about Cambodia so don’t blame you for picking that destination. Good luck with the giveaway!

  2. At the moment I live in Rome, Italy but I am originally from St. Cloud, Minnesota. My favourite travel destination – that’s a tough one because I still have so many places to see! But for now I would have to say Dublin because my second family is there and I love to go and visit them when I have the chance. Otherwise my favourite destination is anyplace new 😀

    • Good luck with the giveaway Tara, hopefully we can send you a backpack that you can take on your travels! Dublin is an awesome pick by the way, I love the Emerald Isle even though I haven’t explored there aside from Dublin Airport.

  3. I live in Edmonton, Canada and my favourite travel destination is too hard to choose, but I’m going back to New York for the third time in a few weeks, so I do like that city.

    • Thanks for entering Alouise! Good luck with the contest! I would have to agree with you that NYC is one of my top destinations, so great choice there.

    • Good luck Samantha with the contest! Another great choice with your favorite destination. Seattle is up there near the top of my bucket list of US destinations that I want to visit next. We have been considering doing a road trip from San Francisco up the Oregon coastline to Seattle and then maybe into Canada to Vancouver.

  4. I live in Tennessee, USA and my favorite destination is simply going on family trips. It doesn’t really matter where as long as we can all go and have fun together.

    • You sure do Sam and we wish you the best of luck with this giveaway! We are hoping to head to Singapore at the end of 2014 also so maybe we will cross paths along the way.

  5. I live in the Philippines, and ah favorite destination is Singapore, i love to go back on and on. I hope when I come back I have this bag. *finger crossed*

    • We wish you the best of luck in this competition! Great choice with Singapore we are hoping to get there at the end of 2014 so fingers crossed.

  6. I live in Oklahoma, United States. I have spent that last few years vacationing at Walt Disney World. I would like to go back to the Netherlands and then embark on an European vacation with my family.

    • Fellow southerner, we are just across the state line in Arkansas (well on the other side of the state but close enough)!

      Sounds like you have some awesome plans so we look forward to following you on your adventures!

  7. We are a Spanish-Dutch couple and we live in the Netherlands. We love many destinations, but probably the one we have enjoyed the most is New Zealand. We even brought a little “stowaway” 🙂

    • We wish you the best of luck Shere! Nice to see another mixed couple (us being British and American) joining in. We have to agree that NZ is our ultimate Dream Destination.
