It’s August and whether you are planning a holiday to some great, exotic locale or are just back from one, Answers is the place to celebrate your vacation! This month, we are doing a special initiative in the Travel category where we invite you to share your fondest memories of landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes and skyscapes through your travel stories and anecdotes.
Spread over four weeks, with each week catering to one particular theme, this initiative will showcase the best holiday destinations and the most awesome travel stories that come from you! So start working on that travelogue of yours and include details like places to stay, things to see, best shopping deals and the like. And don’t forget to tell us why it is among your favorite holiday destinations! We’ll be awarding 50 bonus points for the best story each week.
Not only that, we invite you to share your favorite photograph of the vacation on one of these Flickr groups:
Landscape group - http://www.flickr.com/groups/100naturallandscapes/
Cityscape group - http://www.flickr.com/groups/26328425@N00/
Seascape group - http://www.flickr.com/groups/seascape/
Skyscape group - http://www.flickr.com/groups/98509261@N00/
Once you post your picture there, remember to leave us a comment with the Flickr link on the blog, or add the link in your answer. At the end of four weeks, your story and photograph could be featured on our blog.
And here are 5 steps to ensure your Flickr photo makes it to the contest:
- Log in to http://www.flickr.com/
- Sign up for Flickr with your Yahoo! id if you don’t have a Flickr account already
- Join the Groups (whose links are mentioned above)
- Upload your Travel photos there
- Copy the link of your photo and use that in your answer!
This week’s question is about dreamy landscapes. Meadows full of flowers and green grass, a winding river, a roaring waterfall, awe-inspiring mountains, or endless deserts – what landscape inspired you the most and made for an unforgettable holiday? What was your most picturesque and idyllic holiday in the countryside?
