Winona, MN (PRWEB) April 26, 2006
Johanne Auerböck of Somerville, Massachusetts, is the most recent winner of the ongoing honeymoon contest sponsored by Creative Honeymoon Ideas (http://www.CreativeHoneymoonIdeas.info) and Traveler’s Joy honeymoon registry (http://www.TravelersJoy.com). Her short description of her dream honeymoon was judged most original and well-written, earning her and her fiancé $100 toward making that dream a reality.
Here’s the beginning of Johanne’s winning entry: “Carlos and I fell in love while traveling, he asked me to marry him while we were traveling, and it feels important to start off our married life with a trip to set a precedent. We know what we want. Our dream honeymoon is somewhere completely foreign, where simply walking down the street feels like an education. A place where the question of the day is, ‘What is that?’ and where the desired response is usually, ‘I don’t know, but let’s eat it!’” The rest of her dream honeymoon to China can be found at http://www.CreativeHoneymoonIdeas.info/contest.htm.
The honeymoon contest runs every two months, with the next entry deadline coming up on May 31. Previously, Jennifer Callahan of San Francisco, California, won in March for her evocative description of a tropical honeymoon. "There have been so many wonderful ideas rolling in for the honeymoon contest, it's hard to choose a winner,” said Brandon Warner, president of Traveler's Joy.
Traveler’s Joy is an online honeymoon registry that specializes in helping couples to make their dream honeymoon a reality. Couples create a free account, build a customized registry complete with honeymoon details and photos, and then send registry notices to their wedding guests. The couple receives a wedding gift they will remember for a lifetime: the perfect honeymoon. Creative Honeymoon Ideas helps couples think creatively as they dream about their honeymoon. The site lists some fun, offbeat honeymoon destinations -- like a tropical treehouse, or a hotel made of snow and ice (both of which boast honeymoon packages). But it also suggests more ordinary honeymoon ideas with a creative twist -- hidden Hawaii, for instance, or a honeymoon cruise aboard a paddlewheel steamboat.
The two websites teamed up to sponsor the ongoing honeymoon contest, in which couples describe their dream honeymoon in 300 words or less for a chance to win $100. The prize money is deposited in a Traveler’s Joy honeymoon registry account; the winning couple has the option of either withdrawing the money, or using the registry to give their wedding guests the chance to contribute toward their honeymoon. Entries will be judged on quality and originality. The winning entry, along with honorable mentions, will be featured at both Creative Honeymoon Ideas and Traveler’s Joy as a way of inspiring other couples to dream more creatively about their own honeymoons.
