While Leah Walker was busy city-hopping on her winning ‘Go with Oh’ tour this autumn, we once again invited anyone with a blog and a yearning to discover some of Europe’s most captivating destinations to enter our guest blogger competition.
Up for grabs was a month’s free stay in our gorgeous city break apartments across Europe – in four cities of the winner’s choice. To be in with a chance of scooping the prize, you had to create a blog post telling us which of our 10 destination cities most took your fancy, what you love about it, and who you’d want to share the experience with.
And you picked up the gauntlet with aplomb. Entries came from far and wide, from across the blogosphere. Witty ones, poignant ones, rhyming ones and even bare-legged ones. (Yip, you read that right.)
Down to the wire
Once again, you made our job of picking just one final winner very difficult, to say the least. The quality of your entries was extremely high, and to acknowledge the ones who made the final running, we’ve included two runner-up prizes. Each of the finalists wins three nights’ stay in any one of our 10 European destinations.
And to everyone else who took part – we want you to know that we really appreciate the time and effort you put into your blog posts. Check your emails and you’ll find a message from us giving you a 10% discount on our city break apartments across Europe.
So finally, let the nail-biting come to an end. The next official guest blogger who gets to ‘Go with Oh’ is…
Captain & Clark, aka Chris and Tawny, really wore their heart on their sleeve when it came to writing a love letter to their unrequited amour, Paris. This recently engaged couple plan to hit up the Louvre, Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe in their unique and inimitable style – or, as they put it, “explore the merde out of those places”.
Look at that. Go with Oh is offering up yet another opportunity to see your beautiful city scape and you better believe we’re not going to turn it down. You have been playing hard to get for far too long. In fact, this steamy long-distance love affair has been extremely one-sided. We write, send mix-tapes, and toast in your honor and what do we get in return? Nothing. We only hear of you through other friends that you’ve entertained and hosted over the years. Enough is enough.”
With German blood running through their veins, American sisters Blonde and Brunette want to visit Berlin “to see if this is really the country to blame for Blonde’s fleshy white thighs”. Ladies, we’re on the edge of our seats to find out. Congrats!
The Lazy Travelers, self-proclaimed as the Romantic and the Wino, have Vienna firmly in their sights. They even plan to pay homage to Julie Andrews by climbing an Austrian hill and spinning themselves silly. Well done girls and let the yodelling commence!
