To Celebrate Us Posting 200 Articles, You Can Win A $100 Travel Voucher!

WOW – we have just realized that this is our 200th post on As We Travel – which means we have posted around 140,000 words, in the last 8 months.

I am so proud of Sofia – She is from Sweden, so English isn’t her first language.

So, when going back over our travel articles from the last 8 months you can really see such a growth in her writing and use of the English language.

We are always trying to make this site bigger and better, so in the next few months you will start to notice a few changes.

We will be traveling full-time again, but this time we will be taking our HD Film Camera, mics etc. and producing full HD quality travel guides and fun travel shows hosted by us from every place we visit – which we will upload and share on this site for free.

AND TODAY – We have decided to team up with HotelClub and offer YOU our readers a chance to WIN a 100US travel voucher, which you can use at any one of their hotels around the world – whether you want to book a 5 star hotel in Prague or a luxury bungalow in Bali – the choice is yours!

To win a $100 gift certificate, all you have to do is leave a comment below, telling us where you’d use your prize.

Enter (just once daily) through until November 8th, 2010 at 6 p.m. PST, and we’ll draw a comment number via, and announce the winner a few days later via a personal email and on twitter.

Good luck to all entrants, and thanks to all of our friends, family and readers who have been so supportive of As We Travel – we look forward to another year of great things to come!

So leave a comment below of the place you would use this voucher – and be in to WIN! 😉

    I would use it next time we go to Bali! :=)

  2. Amy & Kieron October 29, 2010 at 7:10 am #

    We’d use it to stay somewhere nice on our first night of our RTW next year – the voucher would give us a chance to overcome any jetlag and get used to the time difference!

    I’d use it towards a trip to Perth! We want to go there for Christmas this year and could use a voucher like this.

    Thanks and congrats on reaching this milestone! I have found many of your articles helpful for my travels.

    On our trip when we leave to Central/South America in March!

    I would use it to FINALLY explore my own country. I’m dying to road trip across America since I’ve never left the West Coast (except to go to Europe!) and I’d love to go to NYC!

    Ok, So I had a look at the site and they have hotels in Antalya so i would use the voucher for a holiday there. They are listing a boutique hotel called the Alp Pasa Boutique Hotel.

    From looking at the photos the ambiance is to die for and it is a good location point to do all my sightseeing. They also have a photo have a huge buffet for breakfast that i would like to get tucked into.

  7. Meghan Finley October 29, 2010 at 4:17 pm #

    I would use it to visit my best friend and finally see her new baby!

    HD Video? so exciting.. looking forward to it.

  10. Jon Gorrie October 29, 2010 at 3:18 pm #

    Either Alicante, San Marino, Evian, or Reykjavík, depending on the season :)

  11. Ayngelina October 29, 2010 at 11:37 pm #

    Sofia, I had no idea English wasn’t your first language. Blogging is tough enough doing in in your mother language. Kudos to you!

    I just decided to go to TBEX11 in Vancouver so I’d love a voucher to stay there.

    congratulation on your feat, 200 articles is an achievements, if i won that money i would spend it in buying drinks while am backpacking in Africa. i normally run out of funds when am backpacking especially for luxury.

    Reykjavik. At the end of our three week cycling trip around the perimeter of Iceland.

  14. Sessary October 30, 2010 at 4:05 pm #

    I would use the $100 toward taking my 80-something parents on a getaway to Pismo Beach, CA. So beautiful there, any time of the year!

  15. Smilie62 October 31, 2010 at 12:12 am #

    I’d love to visit Boston, maybe for St Patty’s day so I could catch an awesome Dropkick Murphy’s concert!

  16. Eleanor October 31, 2010 at 2:51 am #

    I’d use it to explore australia! WOHO!

  17. Anonymous October 31, 2010 at 5:52 am #

    Congrats on reaching 200 posts! And a special congrats to Sofia – excellent writing considering English isn’t your first language. I’m excited to see the new videos in the coming months.

    I’m off to Bali on Tuesday and would use the voucher when I return to Thailand later this month. I’d find an epic bungalow with sea views, a hammock, and good WiFi and spend a week focusing on my online work! I’ll be doing it regardless, but your voucher would help!

    Not sure I should RT or Stumble this … more competition! :) Safe travels you two!

    • Jelena Rumianceva November 1, 2010 at 8:20 am #

      I would use it for my backpacking tour around South America

  18. Andrey November 1, 2010 at 9:20 am #

    I would like to use it somewhere in Europe, a place with you! :)

  19. Smilie62 November 1, 2010 at 3:52 pm #

    I also wouldn’t mind checking out Fallas in Valencia this spring

  20. Alexis November 1, 2010 at 7:42 pm #

    In Edinburgh, so I have some time to look around for an apartment/job overseas

  21. Scott November 2, 2010 at 5:50 pm #

    Great site! I’d use the voucher to either explore Alaska for the first time or head overseas to Europe, which the last frontier for me since I’ve seen most of the U.S. already!

  22. Kyle November 3, 2010 at 5:35 pm #

    I would use mine in Goteborg sweden. I lived there and studied there for thee months in the begning of 2010 and feel in love with the city. I want to go back so bad but airfare is insane. I love everything about sweden from stockholm to malmo but goteborg is my favorite city in the entire world

  23. Cornelius Aesop November 5, 2010 at 1:09 pm #

    I’d use mine while traveling in Japan this December. There is so much to do and see that this would be a great way to explore a hotel that would probably be out of my budget otherwise…and then I would get to write about my great experience and would have to share a link back to the great people who gave me the opportunity. *wink @(*_^)@ *wink

  24. Kaylin Stephens November 5, 2010 at 6:19 pm #

    I’d use it to visit Canada, my northern neighbor (I’m from the US) that I’ve never managed to make it up to see. I have some friends from various provinces, but I’d like to see Quebec particularly and my friend from there is studying in London right now so I’d need a place to stay.

  25. Poor Travel Blogger November 7, 2010 at 10:23 am #

    I’m gonna have to go with Athens. It’s on the way and I’ll be there around Christmas time.

  26. Joe Salisbury November 8, 2010 at 8:25 pm #

    Excellent website and blog! Congratulations to both of you on your 200th blog post. Sofia really is doing a fantastic job. I think I might use the voucher to visit Florida. I’m located on the west coast, so I’d like to spend some time on the other coast. :)

  27. Jann Dougherty November 8, 2010 at 8:32 pm #

    I would use this voucher to get a nice hotel room in New York City for Thanksgiving or Christmas before my 25-year old son moves west to Los Angeles in January! I’m going to miss him and I can’t believe he’s going to be 3,000 miles away : (

  28. Caroline Eubanks November 8, 2010 at 9:00 pm #

    My upcoming trip to Australia! I have a feeling I will get sick of campervans and hostels after a while.

  29. Sandra November 15, 2010 at 7:47 pm #

    Oh my, where to use the $100?! So many places! But I think I would like to take my mother to Pismo Beach, CA in January for her birthday. She’s 82 and my dad is 86 – still vibrant and love to travel, both of them! They love going to the Cottage Inn in Pismo Beach but haven’t been able to afford it lately. It would make them so happy!!!
