Traveling is always an adventure, which means that every traveler has at least one nightmare vacation story. I’ve got a number of anecdotes from my trips, a few of which I share in the video above. Hint: It involves ants and a cheap hotel in Tacoma. If you get a kick out of hearing funny travel stories as much as I do, then you are going to love the Vacay Gone Cray Cray contest!
Vacay Gone Cray Cray is a new contest from Choice Hotels that calls on weary travelers to submit their worst tale of woe on the road. The most hilarious will be re-enacted by YouTube stars Rhett & Link on their “Good Mythical Morning Show” – I love watching actors re-interpret funny stories, so I think this is going to be hysterical! These highlights will be posted starting July 17th, with the contest closing for submissions on August 27th. To enter, just visit VacayGoneCrayCray.com to submit your story. The winner will be announced on September 4th and take home a cool $10,000 so they can have a vacation do-over!
And even if you don’t win big, you can still make up for a lousy vacation without having to break the bank thanks to Choice Hotels. I’m so excited to be partnering with them this summer and will be staying at one of their hotels later this month during a super fun trip that I am planning. 2014 marks Choice Hotels’ 75th anniversary, with over 6,300 hotels in their franchise in 36 countries and counting. And thanks to the verified reviews on their website, I can feel confident that the hotel I will stay in will be quality – and not full of surprises like that other hotel I found in Washington!
What’s the worst disaster you’ve experienced while traveling? Tell me in the comments below, and be sure to submit it to Vacay Gone Cray Cray for your chance to win!
