Win A Travel Guide Book!

Books competition


This competition is now closed!

The winners have been chosen completely at random and contacted via their relevant social media.

I want to thank everyone who entered, I seriously appreciate your time and engagement. Congratulations to the five of you who won! For those of you who didn’t win I am sorry, I really wish you all could have, but you can still pick up a copy here and I sincerely hope you continue to enjoy the inspiration and information, tips, hints and advice on the website. 

Competition time!

To celebrate the fact that Bemused Backpacker is one year old this week, I am giving away paperback copies of two of my travel guide books to 5 lucky readers!

A copy of Backpacking: the ultimate guide to first time around the world travel or Gap Year Safety: the ultimate guide to safely travelling the world are yours for the taking, all you have to do is enter!

How to enter.

Entering could not be simpler. Simply subscribe to receive email alerts in the box to your right, like the Bemused Backpacker Facebook page or follow us on Twitter or Google Plus. Leave a message in the comments section below stating which social media you have signed up to and which book you would like to receive a copy of. That’s it! Simple, right?

It gets even better, if you do all four, you have four chances of winning!

For those already following me on social media or who have already signed up for email alerts then don’t worry, I seriously appreciate all your support and all you have to do is leave a message in the comments section below stating which book you would like to win.

Good luck!

The competition will run all week, and the lucky winners will be picked out completely at random and notified via their social media on April 28th 2014. My decision is final and I reserve the right to change the competition at any time.

Don’t forget the email sign up box is on the sidebar to the right.
