If you’ve been following along with our blog posts and tweets, you’ll know that we’re currently preparing for a massive trip to Europe, Morocco, Turkey and Jordan which includes at least one crazy section – a 750km walk along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela.
Around the beginning of September, we will be walking from the French town of St Jean Pied-de-Port to the western Spanish town of Santiago over the course of about 30 to 35 days. To celebrate this section of our European journey and to keep things interesting on our blog, we will be writing a new blog post every single day. The blogs will be small and contain only a photo and maybe a hundred words so that you quickly scan what we’re up to and go back to what you’re doing.
While we were thinking about this mini-project, we also thought it’d be a great idea to give back to our loyal readers. You, our readers, have been absolutely wonderful over the past year and a bit and we want to show our appreciation by giving a post card away every single day along the Camino. How are we going to do it? Well, every day we will buy a postcard in whichever town we happen to be walking through and when we find a post office, we will post that post card to one lucky reader! As an added bonus, we will also photograph the postcard in the town we bought it in and put it up on our daily blog post so that you can see your post card start its journey to your home. Cool yeah?
So if you want a post card from our Camino journey, please leave your twitter name in the comments and we will contact you soon to let you know if you’re the lucky winner of a post card and if so, which day of the Camino you’ll be getting a post card from. 🙂
