Dear travelettes,

While surfing the web for interesting travel ideas I stumbled over a competition to win a trip to New Zealand. Just when it starts to get dark and cold in Europe, you can escape to the beautiful beaches and unspoiled nature of New Zealand.


The travel agency STA and the travel portal 4trips are making it possible for 14 lucky adventure travellers to spend almost two weeks in the land of the Kiwis. The trip will start in Frankfurt am Main (Germany) the 27th of October and you’ll be back the 11th of November 2010.

To participate go to STA Travel or 4trips (in German). Make a profile for yourself and gather as many votes as possible until the 30th of September.

May the best travelette win!
