TWB365 Party - Winners Revealed

What a way to celebrate! I hope you have enjoyed it too. We ended up with 53 prizes valued at over $7000... I can tell you I wish i was winning all of them, but as a gift person I am happy to be sharing the love with you all. Thanks so much for being apart of it! 

Over the last week we have done a series of special reflective posts that I hope you have all been enjoying.

365 Days of Beaches

We love the beach. We lived by a beautiful beach back home in Australia. And while the Great White’s have given me some good, clear water terror I am still drawn to the magnificent ocean. So what are our favourite beaches?

365 Days of Unbeatable Experiences

Over the last year we have had many firsts. Some I would rather forget, but many I will always recall. When we meet people and they ask us our favourite stories of travelling, these are the top 5 I always find myself repeating.

365 Days of Accomodation

It’s hard work constantly researching for a place to stay. What once was a joyful challenge during 2-4 holidays a year now is the bane of my existence. Sometimes so much that rarely book in advance any more. Check out some of the highlights in our 365 days of accommodation.

365 Days of Transport

With our travelversairy coming up I wanted to write a series of reflective posts on our best ofs & our worst ofs that we have experienced over the last 365 days of travel. The first one I was excited to do was to write about all the types of transport we have used during our travels.

Well the Twitter Party on Saturday night (8pm/8am Sunday morning in Perth, Australia) was a complete success and we had so much fun we only had time to announce 4 winners. So without further adieu please find our list of winners. Congratulations to you all and for those who didn't win, thank you so much for participating and joining us on our journey.
