Win a Trip to Austria #itsgottobeaustria

Vienna Couple at wine tavern © Österreich Werbung / BartlAustria is more than the Alps, Mozart, and the Von Trapp family. Cheesy Me has always wanted to run across a grassy hill with my arms stretched out singing like Julie Andrews. Traveler Me knows that there’s always more to a destination than what we see in the movies. Lucky for Regular Me, I just may get a first-hand chance to find out what Austria offers if I win a seven day themed vacation package.

Of course, my odds of winning would be greater if I didn’t blab about this great contest all over the internet, but I’ve experienced some amazing places already and can’t wait to read about the winning travelers. If I win, I’m putting on a dress and apron and going in search of a grassy knoll in the mountains so that I can sing at the top of my lungs. This would happen only after I check out the many wineries of Austria. I wonder if I can throw in a bit of Music and History to the Food and Wine tour I would choose. Wait, can I add a few spa visits to the mix?
