A few of my favorite things, Contests, Free

Treat’s McFadden and the Ottawa Getaway Contest.

Yes, yes I do know it has been a while, but you all know life is sometimes like that… easy come, easy go.

But I found a really cute fun (and possibly time consuming) contest that takes you to Ottawa.
Most of my savvy readers know that Ottawa is the capital city of our vast country of Canada and it has a whole lot to offer. Ranked 2nd cleanest city in Canada and 3rd cleanest in the world, Ottawa is one heck of a city.

Let’s not even get touristy here, but if you win this contest, you will surely know what I mean.

Tourism Ottawa and Treat’s McFadden dot com have created this contest that is simple to do. Simply join the site, look for clues, answer question(s) and repeat every week.
Not too tough and gives you a bit of a challenge.
Obviously the more you enter by answering questions, the better chances you have of winning.

So without further ado, here are the deets:

What: There be will one grand prize awarded, consisting of a trip for 2 to the Ottawa region.
The trip includes: Choice of economy airfare for two OR economy VIA Rail travel for two from any location in Canada to Ottawa.

Editor’s Notes: I joined this contest. It seems there are videos/questions/hints that help you along the way. When entering your answers, they must be specific i.e. Peace Tower NOT the Tower of Peace, so be careful when answering. If you get it wrong, click the link for the correct answer (you will see what I mean) Enter your answer at the bottom of each video…repeat over the time of the contest.

Whew…. have fun 🙂
