LG Sydney Series: Our favorite reasons to visitAustralia — By Amanda P on October 12, 2009 at 1:53 pm
We can’t believe it! It’s been more than two years since we completed the last leg of our round-the-world adventure, but we still find ourselves waxing nostalgic for the two months we spend living “Down Under” in Sydney. For more than two months, The Lost Girls called Oz our home, and thanks to Simone (our fabulous local Aussie girlfriend) we lived just one block from the world-renowned Bondi Beach. Those were some seriously cool times, and we’d love nothing more than to boomerang back for another visit.
There’s plenty of Lost Girls and Guys out there who feel like we do-Australia always seems to be right at the top of everyone’s travel wish lists!-but getting there can seem like a spectacular challenge. We can vouch for the first part: A trip to Sydney is spectacular indeed, but thanks to the folks at Tourism New South Wales, the trip of a lifetime no longer has be a challenge…
This month, they’re offering we Yankees the opportunity to win a dream vacation to Sydney, including round trip airfare on V Australia, seven nights accommodation and an exclusive ticket to experience at least five of the most “life enhancing” activities that the city has to offer. These might include:
â€¢ Climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge
â€¢ Sailing on Sydney Harbour
â€¢ Dancing Around Sydney
â€¢ Learn to Surf at Bondi Beach
â€¢ Going behind the scenes at Sydney Opera House
The contest will be hosted on the Sydney Australia Facebook Page (a one-stop online shop for flights, lodging, etc) from now through October 31st. You can register by becoming a fan on Facebook, complete your entry by choosing your favorite “Sydney Life Points” experience (ie, the kind of stuff listed above) and posting it to your wall.
For the next two weeks, we’ll be posting our favorite moments from our first Aussie adventure here on Lost Girls, and sharing some of our favorite entries from the contest. Not one, but two big winners will be awarded a vacation for two to Sydney…so if you’re one of the lucky ones, take a Lost Girl with you!!
