Why do you travel?
It’s a simple question that offers much food for thought!
Over 200 of you entered our “Why I Travel” contest – posting a photo and caption that best encapsulates your drive to see the world.
There was originally going to be just one winner but we were so blown away by all your amazing entries that we decided to offer 3 more bonus prizes!
Check out the winning photos right here, as well as some stunning Editors’ Picks!
Michael Jacobson’s tongue in cheek Sphinx shot won him hundreds of votes and $500 to fly anywhere!
Emanuele Siracusa’s gorgeous shot of a Cambodian child captured your hearts and won him $100 towards his round the world trip.
Veronica Rene Salas’ concert shot rallied music fans worldwide behind her entry and won her $100 towards a flight to see her favorite band…. Muse!
We liked the wonderful simplicity of Madison LeMesurier’s “Why I Travel” caption so much that we decided to help her get to Oktoberfest, Munich with $100 towards her flight.
