For $10 You Could Win A Luxury Hotel Stay



This week I’m focusing on my favorite prizes in Passports with Purpose 2010. To enter, go to the Donate page, and for each $10 you donate, you get an entry into a free prize drawing for a prize of your choice. All the money raised (less Paypal’s fees) goes directly to LAFTI. Your donations will help build a village in India.

Since Passports with Purpose is the travelbloggers’ fund-raiser, we are supported by many travel companies including hotels and resorts. Today I’ve chosen my favorites from the long list of hotels supporting this year’s effort.

Naturally, I had to choose the four-night stay at five-star hotels in Ireland as my first choice within the vacations prizes. This is the part of Ireland where we spend most of our time when we visit family in Ireland. We got married in this area and we think it’s beautiful – and a really great destination for a family vacation.

Thinking more of a quiet couple getaway, the 3 night luxury ‘BodyHoliday’ spa break for two people at LeSPORT hotel in St Lucia is very tempting. Here’s what had to say about this prize: “It’s an all inclusive package including luxury room, meals, all drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), a full programme of fitness activities, plus one spa treatment per person, per day. The hotel is on the Northwest tip of the Caribbean island of St Lucia and sits directly on Cariblue’s crescent beach, surrounded by 42 acres of lush tropical gardens. It’s a thirty minute drive from the capital Castries and the George F.L. Charles airport”.

Aruba-Marriott-Resort-300x200My last pick for today is a (drum-roll…) 5-night stay at any of the nine Paradise by Marriott resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico. How cool is that? As a family, we’ve stayed at various Marriott properties around the U.S. Marriott is a family-friendly brand with lots of different accommodation options but the Paradise properties truly look heaven-sent for families seeking to rest, relax and spend quality time together.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    These are ALL great picks! Of course I’m partial to the Paradise by Marriott resorts prize…but there are so many terrific PwP prizes that anyone should find something they’d like to bet ten bucks on winning.
