Given that you are Canadian, I am actually just going to guess at the company, and say Carlsberg. I know they were running a very similar contest recently.

Anyway, if I am wrong (or if I am right), I think it's fine to post the name of the company given that you aren't working for them and get nothing out of it (other than bragging rites). Of course, I'm not a moderator, so what the hell do I know? (Not enough, apparently, not to use naughty words in a post).

So, to the rules of the contest. You have 40 hours of flights to do in 7 days, but that's only within a continent. Otherwise you need to fly commercial. Is that still covered by the company?

I would do two or three continents, 'cause why the hell not? Plus, with 7 people you want to party and have a good time. And, what's the point of just travelling to one place if you can travel for free?

Africa would be good, but even a safari would be 3 days minimum (if you wanted to see much), so that would eat up a bunch of your time.

I would think about a couple different party / beach destinations (to maximize the possibility of hitting upon something that everyone likes). I would say start in Europe for some high-living, club going, then head to Rio in South America for a few days of relaxing on the beach. Maybe then spend a few days in the interior of South America (or maybe somewhere in Central America) doing some hiking and seeing the wildlife. Then shoot back out again and spend the final couple days partying it up again somewhere expensive, like Tokyo or Hong Kong.

Thanks Greg!! You are correct - if nothing is gained, the posting of the name and link are not in violation. But, since I was unaware of Carlsberg's contest - I thought I would error on the side of caution. (Being a Mod and all... ;) )

Isa goes off to hunt the internet for Carlsberg's website and wishes Beerman didn't work for his brewery so she could have won the custom made electric guitar...

Ding Ding Ding give the man a prize!

Greg is absolutely correct about the company being Carlsberg. And nope I do not get anything for stating their name except for bragging rites as Greg pointed out. :)

Your trip of traveling to several continent has passed our minds but the problem is we will be wasting way too much time flying instead of sight seeing.

So we were thinking of focusing our visit to just a few countries that are close to each other. The best trip plan so far is within Europe since most of the countries are in close proximity to each other.

But since I am now well travelled, I was thinking others here might know of places that might be interesing to visit.

Cheers,

Chi.

Hey ethancote. When I said save up, I meant save your money up so that you can go some wher more expensive, ie Europe, you've got the right idea! Europe is a blast rich in history, Culture and beautiful architecture, there is a language barrier but in more commercial areas you'll get by with english, places to check out

Madrid
Paris
Prague - defo the most beautiful city Ihave been to, shame about the budding stag and hen party industry, it cheapens any city.

London

I've always wanted to go to Croatia, check out split and the dalmation cosat - very cheap too.

good luck!

You jammy sod!

If you want to stay just in one area, than Europe would be a good place, as you would have the culture of the big cities plus the wicked beaches.

You could also think about S-E Asia for beaches, parties, nature and culture, or maybe South America in Brazil - Argentina - Peru for all four again.
