Happy New Year to one and all! From the trourist team to you, we hope that you’ve enjoyed some super-fun holidays with your buds and loved ones and have kicked off 2010 with the biggest of smiles.
We don’t know if you’ve been fortunate enough to hit the road during this Xmas period. At trourist, we’ve pretty much stayed at home here in San Sebastián, but managed to travel far and wide through the diverse, cool experiences many of you shared with us in our first real experience contest.
It’s been a fulfilling and fun trip. Maria Agirre turned us on to a very special bar in Berlin. Bryan brought us to one of the most important summits in the Orizaba region of Mexico. Ibon Sotil shared with us a strange ritual practiced along the Ganges river bank. Sabine Gabrielle had us sleeping by a waterfall in Thailand. Carmen Andres showed us the real-feel of an Irish brewery. Isabel Fernandez introduced us to a quite charming eatery in Tangiers. David Domingo invited us to catch forty winks by the sea in Stockholm. Lastly, Sandra infused us with the magical splendor one can breathe in Buenos Aires’ most emblematic library.
However, the experience that earned the highest number of points from the jury was the one submitted by Mariel Perez:
Congrats, Mariel! Enjoy to the max 100€ from HostelWorld and Ryanair that we’re passing on to you. We hope you’ll jot down all those real and special experiences you encounter in your Moleskine and share them with us when you get back from your trip.
