World Nomads contest: Win a three-week trip to Turkey

Posted on January 25th, 2011 by Laura Byrne Paquet in Contests

Exploring Istanbul to update a Rough Guide. Being mentored by a seasoned travel writer. And spending 12 days cycling, horseback riding and sea kayaking in Turkey with BikeHike Adventures. Wow, if I was still an “emerging travel writer” (well, some days it still feels that way), I’d be frantically working on my application for this World Nomads contest to win a three-week trip to Turkey.

All you need to do is write a 500-word essay, fill out an application form and be available to travel for three weeks in June 2011. For details, see the full contest posting on the World Nomads website.

    Turkey, a Muslim nation of beauty and colossal History. From Gallipoli to Anatolian splendor, the culture and the past make Turkey come alive. Istanbul is a prime example of past and presen Turkey. From Byzantium to Constantinople-to the heaviest spied upon city of modern day Istanbul, it is the epitome of now and then. The coasatal towns are beautiful and offer a smorgasbord of marine delights. The Kurds, occupy the interior around Ararat and shroud the mystery that is ark in foundation. There is no where I would rather explore-old and young-poor and rich, Turkey is a land of womder.
