COMPETITION: 10 Second Travels - What's the most unforgettable view you've ever seen while travelling?

21st April 2017

For this month's 10 Second Travels competition and a chance to win prizes, tell us (in approx 10-20 words) about the most incredible view you've ever seen while travelling...


Each month, we ask a quick question. We want to hear your bite-sized travel stories. 

This month's question is: 

What's the most unforgettable view you’ve ever seen while travelling? 

 

Perhaps you’ve taken in an epic view of a desert, coastline or mountain range? Or you’ve been lucky enough to explore one of the world’s weirdest landscapes

Maybe you watched an unforgettable sunrise or sunset, after a challenging hike, climb or bike ride? Or you've seen a wonderful winter landscape? 

Perhaps you took in a city, from Santiago to Bangkok, from a unique vantage point? Or observed an incredible natural phenomenon or group of wildlife?

What about a travel classic, like the Taj Mahal or Angkor Wat? Or perhaps you saw an unforgettable view from the window of a train, bus or boat…?

  

Tell us your '10 Second Travels' story below, using approx 10-20 words. The one we like the most will win a goody bag of prizes. We'll also collect together our favourite entries to run as an online article. 

Simply sign in to myWanderlust and pop your 10 Second Travels entry in the Comments section below.

Good luck!

Closing date: 9.59am, May 05, 2017.
