The competition to win our road-trip giveaway was absolutely fierce this month. We were absolutely inundated with amazing videos, photos and blogs from our happy clients. It was a difficult decision, but ultimately there were a couple of stand out entries who have scored some fantastic prizes.
Lesley Van Loo captured this incredible photo of a Kea flying away from her Hippie, and we gave her a digital camera for her efforts.
Alex Krasinsky put in a mammoth effort with his 74 day “Crossing Oz” blog. Alex scored a video recorder, as well as heartfelt admiration from the Hippie team! Please check out the blog if you have a chance, it is a detailed travel-log which really offers an in-depth insight in to what it means to travel Australia (whether you choose a campervan or not).
Here’s one of the highlights from Alex’s story:
After the short detour we set off in direction of Atherton. This drive turned out to be long, straight and soporific. Not long and the juicy green rainforest turned into red dirt and outback feeling.
In Tolga we actually took a turn and headed on a small and deserted road to Lake Tinaroo. There we got to go for a swim and sunbake a bit. Because it was getting late we decided to have a look at the Tinaroo Falls and look for a place to sleep, instead of continuing the drive to the other falls. Unfortunately the Tinaroo Falls werent ‘available’ because they were working on the dam. Although it kinda was waterfalldisasterday we kept driving and a beautiful part of the lake opened up in front of us.
You may have noticed that we have changed the prize structure to 1st, 2nd and 3rd, rather than allocating a specific prize to a type of entry. That way, no matter what your creative forte, you’ll have the opportunity to win any of the awesome prizes on offer.
