Why We Ride Blog Contest – Spring 2012

The Bus2alps Why We Ride Blog Contest…

You have a passion for travel. Well I don’t think it’s a secret that we do too. We want to hear your take on the incredible travel experiences we have shared together. Blog about it and you may find yourself seeking new experience in Europe, free of charge. Bus2alps presents the ‘Why We Ride’ Blog Contest.

We want to hear about the 80s songs you sang at Lucerna, the baguette you ate in Paris, the confetti you threw at Carnival, and even how much you screamed while canyon jumping in the Alps. You get it. We want to hear your stories, details, and most importantly, why you traveled with us.

You travel. You blog. And then you travel more. But this time it may be on  us!
