My husband and I always like to joke that participating on a show like The Amazing Race would be the end of our marriage. You see, we’re both directionally-challenged, and staying together in close proximity – while perpetually lost – are the makings for a good ol’ divorce.
Of course, I love a good scavenger hunt… the adventure, the suspense, the rewards, oh my! I’m usually the first person to decode the clue, so really, I just need a good guide to help us find the way to the next one. Any volunteers? I am officially taking on partners!
Speaking of scavenger hunts, participate in the Passport to Explore sweepstakes, and you and a guest could be off for a 7-day adventure to the North American destination of your choice (anywhere Air Canada flies, with a stay at Loews Hotels), courtesy of National Geographic.
Entering is Easy: Visit a participating National Geographic or National Geographic Explorer luggage retailer to identify the mystery animal on the product’s tag. Then, fill out this form for your chance to win. For extra entries, enter my blogger code, 801 - and/or share a link to the contest on your Facebook Page.
And here’s the part I love – I know exactly how to get to a National Geographic luggage retailer, because you can find them almost everywhere. Have a Sears in your area? You can likely find the luggage there. Now that’s the kind of scavenger hunt I like. Click here to find a retailer near you.
The contest closes on March 31st. While you’re out an about, check out some of the gorgeous luggage that National Geographic carries. From messenger bags to backpacks, rolling duffle bags to leather crossbodys, they’ve got you covered for your next adventure. I’ve always been smitten with the Explorer Collage Hardside Luggage -
“Durable, maneuverable, and eye-catching, our hard-side Explorer luggage is a travel-savvy way to show your love of National Geographic. It’s full of features that frequent travelers will appreciate. For starters, you’ll be able to spot the full-color graphics in an instant whether it’s sliding down the baggage claim chute at LAX or strapped to the roof of a bus in Bangalore.
A zippered pocket on the inside lid and interior tie-down straps help you stay organized and efficiently packed. All four wheels have 360° rotation so it’s easy to maneuver through crowded airline terminals and other tight spaces. The push-button, retractable handle slides smoothly. And carry handles on the top and side help when lifting the suitcase in and out of overhead bins or the trunk of a taxi.”
The good folks at National Geographic sent a 20-inch model our way, which is the perfect size for weekends away when a carry-on is too small, yet we don’t want to tote along our super-big suitcase. The design is incredibly gorgeous, and I can’t wait to find a reason (or destination) to use it!
