Win (but really work for) a trip around the world!

They pick a winner and everything but the winner has to write as they travel around the world – they (National Geographic Adventure) call it Blog Your Way Around the World.

First you write 400 words on why you should win. Then you collect votes. S/he who ends with the most votes wins so it’s a popularity thing and you’re supposed to use Facebook and Twitter and all that. Votes are collected until December 31, 2010 11:59pm EST.

Prizes include:

– Whitewater rafting on Idaho’s Middle Fork of the Salmon River with O.A.R.S., National Geographic Adventure’s “Best River & Sea Outfitter on Earth” and one of Travel & Leisure’s “Top 33” Adventure Outfitters.

– Polar bear viewing in Churchill with Natural Habitat Adventures, leaders in responsible nature travel and worldwide ecotourism for over 25 years.

– Heli-hiking in British Columbia with Canadian Mountain Holidays, the world’s premier heli-skiing & heli-hiking operator.

– Bicycling through the Czech Republic and Austria with Backroads, the world’s #1 active travel company.

– Zip-lining, surfing and wildlife viewing in Costa Rica with Off the Beaten Path, the leader in guided small group and custom-tailored adventure travel

– A life-changing Galapagos adventure with Lindblad Expeditions, pioneers of expedition travel, named in Travel & Leisure’s 2009 list of best small-ship cruise lines, “#1 Small Ship for Families” and Conde Nast Traveler’s 2009 Gold List for Best Cruise Lines.

– Expedition cruising in Borneo with Orion Expeditions, winner of the Cruise Passenger Readers Choice Awards for “Best Small Ship,” “Best Cuisine” and “Best Adventure Tourism.”

– A customized safari in East Africa with six-time Travel & Leisure “Best Tour Operator,” Micato Safaris.

Of course if you already work hard enough and want to set your sites on winning something to help you relax instead of become a big shot travel writer (or you can do both), there are still a few days left to enter the free Unwind contest.
