Win an iPad

Update March 5th: We have a winner!

Congratulations to Moira Ashley for her excellent entry. Watch this space for an update from Moira on her trip.

Hands up who fancies dropping everything and travelling the world for a bit? All of you? We thought as much.

To celebrate the launch of the new Rough Guides website, we’ve teamed up with North South Travel to offer one lucky reader – and an eternally grateful friend – up to £4000 (or the USD equivalent) to spend on flights and hotels around the world. New York, Paris, London, Sydney, Bognor Regis - the world would literally be your oyster.

We’re also throwing in a brand new iPad to keep you connected on your journeys and the chance to write a blog on this very site from your adventures.

All you need to do is sign up to the new site if you haven’t already, and write up to 100 words underneath this article on the topic “the place that changed me”. It could be a country, city or somewhere completely rural. You could have been blown away by scenery, fallen in love with the people, or enchanted by the food – just let us know how the place changed you in some way.

Encourage your friends to sign up and vote for your answer, and we’ll pick our favourite entry. Good luck!

NB: The competition is only open to UK and US residents - see the full terms and conditions here. Competition is now closed.
