Attention, globe trotters: Five months left to submit photos for the ‘It’s Read Everywhere’ contest.

What a ride the last seven months have been. Last fall we asked you to take us along on your travels for our 2015 “It’s Read Everywhere” contest, sponsored by Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport. Here’s where you’ve taken us:

We’ve been to Cuba three times, biked across Vietnam and the Golden Gate Bridge and summited Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

We’ve been on a safari, during which we saw no lions or tigers, but plenty of polar bears in Manitoba, Canada. We saw Tasmanian devils and kangaroos in Tasmania, cheered on the Seattle Seahawks at Super Bowl XLIX in Phoenix, cruised the Mississippi River and celebrated Mardi Gras in the Big Easy.

At press time, 94 of our readers had taken us along on their travels for this year’s contest.

But as season ends and snowbirds and summer travelers trot  around the globe, we’re excited about where you jet-setters will take us.

Readers have until Sept. 30 to submit their photos. One winner, will be announced in November, will receive two travel tickets courtesy of Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport.

So, when you pack your suitcases, don’t forget to pack your Observer newspaper and enjoy the journey ahead. Then, submit your photos by visiting YourObserver.com/itsreadeverywhere.

Bon voyage!
