Win tickets to the Adventure Travel Show and Get Inspired for 2012…

[singlepic id=4263 w=600 h=440 float=center]

Way back in January 2010, Richard and I made our way down to London in search of travel inspiration. We knew that we wanted to do something different, something bold and something exciting for the year ahead, but had no idea where to start. How on earth were we going to get inspired to embark on the adventure of a lifetime?

Just by chance we came across an advert for the Adventure Travel Show, a travel event for people who like to travel outside the mainstream or ‘off the beaten track ‘, so thought we may as well go along. It’s fair to say that we weren’t quite sure what to expect and weren’t entirely sure that the trip would be worth our time. But the decision to attend turned out to be one of the best decisions we ever made…

The Adventure Travel Show brings together a world of extraordinary discoveries with travel experts, explorers, tour operators and writers all coming together to fill your head with amazing possibilities. And it’s not just reserved for hardened travellers either – you don’t have to have scaled Everest, swum the Atlantic or abseiled down the world’s most active volcanoes to benefit from the opportunities this show inspires. Whether you’ve never experienced anything more adventurous than a 2 week package holiday (like us!), or whether you have already travelled the globe, it really doesn’t matter.

Epic Adventures

It was at this show that we met the guys from Oz Bus who told us that they would take us on a bus from London to Sydney. Yeah right! A BUS?! We thought they were crazy. We’d never heard anything so ridiculous but what they said just kept going round and round in our heads. Eventually we just had to say to ourselves “A bus to Australia? Now that would be pretty frigging cool”. After that, our plan was set and the rest, as they say, is history!

All of the amazing life-changing experiences we’ve had over the last year can all be traced back to the Adventure Travel Show, so in the hope that you can benefit from the inspiration it gave to us, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to the show in January.
