Travel Contest on

If you are the athletic type, like to travel, and are a U.S. resident, here is a contest for you. A new website, is looking for people to enter the Saturn Dream Detour Contest. All you have to do is write an essay (just 150 words) on what your active dream vacation in the United States might be. One of the examples given is doing yoga on the beach at Big Sur.

If your essay is chosen this month, according to the website, you will win a snowboard package worth $500. There are prompt questions to get you started, and each month there’s a new prize.

At the end of the contest (all entries must be received by October 31) the winner will be chosen from the pool of finalists. That person will be able to take the dream vacation he or she wrote about. Here are the contest specifics in case you’re interested.

Even if you are not a resident of the U.S., is another place to go to find out ways to combine travel and fitness. It makes me think I ought to be more active myself.
