As I write this, the clouds have darkened the sky and the newscaster on the television is telling me that New York is about to experience its 13th snowstorm this winter. Horrifying! What am I doing? I’m inside entering travel giveaways, hoping I am randomly selected to escape somewhere sunny and beautiful.
I can’t believe I’ve been in New York for almost 2 entire months without leaving the confines of the city. I’m going a little stir crazy and the next flight I have booked is 47 days away (Copenhagen, here I come). I’ve been so busy with work that I haven’t been able to plan any weekend escapes, so fingers crossed I win one of this week’s Wanderlust Wishlist travel giveaways!
- Kissimmee, Florida is known for being close to Orlando’s theme parks, but there’s definitely more to this destination than just a place to crash after a day at Disney – and their Rock Your Vacation giveaway grand prize proves it. To enter, you’ll have to Instagram a video explaining or showing them how you’d rock your vacation (see all the rules here). The winner gets roundtrip airfare, accommodations in a 7-bedroom house with a rental vehicle (invite your friends, hello party!!), a private hot air balloon tour (something I’ve always wanted to do), boat tours, face time with gators (yikes!) and more.

- How about a getaway to Mexico? CheapCaribbean.com is offering a 6-day/5-night all-inclusive vacation for two with air to the Paradisus Cancun. All you have to do to enter is create a Pinterest board about your beach style and submit the link. [CheapCaribbean.com]
- Viva Wyndham, which has resorts in the Bahamas, Mexico and the Dominican Republic, is giving away a 7-night stay for people who like their page on Facebook. [Viva Wyndham Facebook Page]
- One of many great travel giveaways that I found on Facebook this week was from Visit San Diego. They’re giving away a trip for four (yes, FOUR) people that includes a 3-night stay, tickets to Sea World, and a couple other fun activities. [Visit San Diego Facebook Page]
