Well, we got away with one last year as Covid-19 was just beginning to spread around the world (congrats Singapore) but in 2021 with the pandemic still going strong, it doesn’t make sense to have a Best City tournament this year. Right about now is when I’d be preparing the annual contest (newsletter subscribers look for a chance to win) where I’ve given out over $15,000 in cash and prizes. Though the more I thought about it, the less sense it made.
A lot of travel media lately seems to be ignoring the pandemic or at least marching along like there isn’t a massive viral elephant in the planet room and I’m not sure how sure a thing travel will be this year. On a less negative note, I still want to give you an opportunity to win some money. Any good ideas? Let me know in the comments, with an email, or very strong telepathy.
On a related note (a lot of notes in this post), I’ll be going over the history of the Best City Travel Tournaments in the next episode of the foXnoMad Podcast (what are the odds I run a giveaway there this week…?) plus a look at the future of the contest. So, what’s March going to look like on foXnoMad, the first year in nearly a decade without the weekly polls to determine the Best City to Visit? Probably taking a short bit of time off to recharge and plan a few new things for spring to share with you 🙂
