Are you glad it’s the weekend? I’ve just finished a big 4 week project for my day job. This weekend I’m catching up on a few things at home before I fly to Sydney early next week. It’s also the last week of summer here in Australia, and I’m looking forward to the start of autumn and cooler weather and my birthday. Fun times!
I have a question for you: What would be your dream vacation if you had an unlimited budget to visit Australia? Tourism Australia put together an ad for the Superbowl. You may have seen it?
Did the ad fit your expectations of Australia? Would it entice you to visit Australia? If you’ve visited Australia, what did you think of my beautiful country? If you’re an Aussie (waving to Wemble and our Aussie reader friends): What’s your top holiday destination in Australia?
On Valentine’s Day Ginger launched our brilliant Birthday Bash. The lucky Grand Prize winner will be able to snuggle up with the throw and their favorite beverage in a pretty Inspy Romance mug. In their Inspy Romance tote they’ll have a notebook, a selection of inspy romance print books, and the Voyager! A fabulous reading experience for the winner of the Grand Prize Bundle!
There are 10 prize bundles to be won – 4 print book bundles – 4 ebook bundles – 1 international print book bundle (for our international reading friends who live outside the US) and the Grand Prize bundle!
Every comment you write on our blog posts during the giveaway period (2/14-3/16) will give you an entry in the drawing. Check out our 2018 Birthday Bash Giveaway Page for the terms and conditions and the full list of prizes.
