"It's Read Everywhere" contest marks start of incredible journey

Share
Attention, globe trotters: You have five months left to submit your photos for the 2015 ‘It’s Read Everywhere’ contest.

What a ride the last seven months have been. We asked you to take us along on your travels last fall for our 2015 “It’s Read Everywhere” contest, sponsored by Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport. And 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, on 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 49 in Phoenix, cruised the Mississippi River and celebrated Mardi Gras in the Big Easy.

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

But as season ends and snowbirds and summer travelers trot 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 receive two travel tickets courtesy of Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, which will  be announced in November.

So, when you pack your suitcases, don’t forget to pack your Observer newspaper and enjoy the journey ahead.

Bon voyage!
