May – England: The Year of the English Garden
Prize: $50 to your choice of The Home Depot or Lowes
In England, the garden is more than just a wooden milk crate full of tulips. It is a gathering places for friends and family, a work of art reflecting months of labor, and a labyrinth of grand scale in castles and estates. We’ve all heard the old adage, “April Flowers bring May Flowers,” and in England, it couldn’t be more true. All the foliage and flowers are in full bloom, and people gather on the green for picnics, parties, and afternoon tea. Visiting some of the awe inspiring gardens of England is essential for any nature lover. We are offering a $50 gift card to Lowes or the Home Depot to help with your own garden.
Winner: Morgan Biggs
June – Northern Ireland: Year of Food and Drink
Prize: $50 Gift Card to Morton’s The Steakhouse
We’ve all heard of fish and chips, maybe even bangers and mash (sausage and creamed potatoes), but have you ever heard of an Ulster fry? It’s a traditional Irish breakfast full of bacon, sausages, an egg, a tomato, mushrooms, but its fried soda bread really sets it apart from its traditional counterpart. Not to mention that Bushmills whiskey is made at the Old Bushmills Distillery in Northern Ireland, a must-see for any whiskey drinker. If your mouth is already watering, be sure to start planning your trip today. We will help satisfy your hunger in the meantime by offering a $50 gift card to Morton’s The Steakhouse to one winner this month.

August – Italy: Italian Festivals, Featuring Palio in Siena
Prize: $50 Maggiano’s Gift Card
Palio di Siena is a horse race held twice a year in Siena, Tuscany on July 2 and August 16. In July the race is held in honor of Madonna of Provenzano. The jockeys ride bareback, and although the race often only lasts 90 seconds, many jockeys will get thrown from their horse, and the horses will finish the race solo. It is a must see event that is surrounded by festivals and feasts. Enter to win a $50 gift card to Maggiano’s restaurant to whet your Italian appetite!
September – Scotland: Year of Innovation, Architecture, and Design
Prize: $50 Gift Card to Crate and Barrel
Some of the most important innovations of our times have Scottish roots: the steam engine, the bicycle, the telephone, and the first cloned mammal (we love Dolly!). 2016 is the year to celebrate these monumental innovations, as well as the beautiful and cutting edge engineering, architecture, and design that Scots excel at. Visit Scotland and see architecture that spans from Gothic, Romantic, and Victorian, to contemporary and modern. Win a $50 gift card from Crate and Barrel to start you on your own design journey, and maybe pick up some Scottish inspiration!
October – Ireland: Wild Atlantic Way
Prize: $50 Gift Card to SpaFinder
Do you love road-tripping along the coast, with the ocean to one side, and rolling hills to the other? Ireland’s Wild Atlantic way offers 2,500 km (1553 miles) of scenic coastline that leads your through nine counties, three provinces, UNESCO world heritage sites, and many other natural wonders. If there is a road-trip to take in your life, this would be it. To help you relax from all your planning (or unwind after you return), enter to win a $50 gift card to SpaFinder and treat yourself.
November – Explore the Northern Lights
Prize: $50 Gift Card to REI
The Aurora Borealis is one of the most mystical and beautiful natural wonders in the world. This event is caused by electrons colliding with the upper reaches of Earth’s atmosphere, and then passing their energy to atoms and molecules, which emit lights. This explanation pales in comparison to the beams of moving light that illuminate the sky in places like Iceland, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. Plan your once in a lifetime trip and experience it for yourself. Enter to win a $50 REI gift card to buy some gear to keep yourself warm.
