Review Of The Google Home Hub And A End Of Year Giveaway For You

Hello and welcome to the end of the year! I’ve got a full post coming up looking back on 2018, but here’s a preview of a small announcement for 2019. I’ve got a lot to be thankful for and so much of it is because of you. Your support of this blog over 10 years has made what was a crazy dream into a continuing crazy reality. Commenting and sharing blog posts, spreading the word about my travel apps like WiFox, and giving me great local advice – I can’t say thank you enough.

2019 Year Of Giveaways

One way though I’ll try is by making 2019 the year of giveaways – and I’m starting a bit early. If you’ve watched the video above, you know I’m currently giving away a Google Home Hub. To enter, all you have to do is subscribe to my YouTube channel and leave a comment on the video here. To get even more chances to win, here’s a page I set up to earn additional entries.

The next giveaway will happen by the end of the year so that subscription on YouTube might win you a trip, bag, and well, hopefully provide some travel and tech entertainment as well. Many of you let me know on Facebook what you’d like to win and I’ll be working on getting some of those for prizes as well.

Thank you again for 2018 and cheers to 2019. From me to you, a Happy New Year with a lot of travel and the pursuit of one crazy dream, no matter how big or small. If in some way I can help be a part of it, my inbox is always open to you. It’s the least I can do – certainly you’ve done the same for me.

Granada Is The Best City To Visit Of 2018!

Granada, Spain, picked up steam early in the Best City To Visit Travel Tournament this year and never slowed down. Dubrovnik, in a first trip to the final, didn’t offer much resistance as you overwhelmingly voted for Granada as Best City to Visit of 2018.


Granada’s win means it has achieved several things no city ever has in 9 years of The Best City To Visit contests. In 2017, Granada was the first winning city I had previously visited. This year, Granada becomes the first city to win twice and the first city to win back-to-back tournaments and repeat as best city.

Last year, we had a big party to celebrate Granada’s win in the city, this year, I hope to have even bigger plans. Even if you voted for Dubrovnik, I recommend you subscribe to my newsletter or YouTube channel, it might send you to Granada.

Congratulations also to Daniel, who nominated Granada and wins $250. Thank you all who participated in the contest this year – I hope to see you in early February 2019, for the 10th anniversary of The Best City To Visit Travel Tournament.

Time for me to start planning my trip to Granada…
