Motivation Monday: Taking a Chance on New Zealand

0169NWZD2013Contiki loves finding content from our trips online and this video from YouTube user Jasmine Vo really resonated with us.  It’s a preview of what we’re sure is more to come from her 10-day Contiki trip through New Zealand.

Jasmine writes in her “about” section for the video that she booked the trip one week prior to departure and had never traveled alone before – and her life makes so much more sense after her Contiki.

Guest Post: My Adventure on Contiki’s Asian Adventure

Guest Blog Post by Lesley Siu, editor-in-chief of Her Campus American

I always said Asia would be my next adventure. After completing a summer internship in Australia and a semester studying in Europe, it was next on my travel to-do list. With the help of Her Campus and Contiki, I finally did make it to Asia—Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, to be exact.

As the editor-in-chief of Her Campus American, I wrote a series of travel articles for Her Campus and Contiki’s TravelHER contest. By writing and sharing my posts “No Regrets: Top 5 Reasons You Should Travel Now,” “How to Document Your Travels” and “Chic Travel Essentials,” I was chosen as the winner of a Contiki tour and airfare credit for two!

So on August 30, my friend Kelsey and I set out for Southeast Asia to spend two weeks on the Asian Adventure tour.
