Win Flights and A Hotel Stay In Paradise With #OpodoParadise

The summer holidays are well under way here in the UK; thankfully we have been blessed with gloriously sunny weather over the last two months which has brightened the mood of the nation and kept my wanderlust at bay!

However, I’m excited to be heading out on a North American adventure to Las Vegas, Whistler, and Orlando in a few short weeks – keep an eye on my Instagram for more details and a lot of travel inspiration!

Many of you will have already enjoyed a trip abroad this year, and some may still be looking forward to escaping the rat race for a week or two, regardless you’ll no doubt be interested in the opportunity to WIN flights and a hotel stay in paradise?

Yep, thought so.


This month I’m partnering with Opodo, the popular online travel agency which was named “Best Flight Booking Website” for three consecutive years in the British Travel Awards, to give away a trip to paradise.

Want to know the best part? The winner gets to choose flights and a hotel stay in any destination that gives them all the paradisiacal feels!

Love laying on a beach?

Book a trip to the Caribbean island of Nevis and relax on palm tree-shaded sands. I’m pretty bias (I used to live there), but I think the combination of unspoilt beaches, few tourists, and lots of beautiful views make it the perfect paradise. Check out some of the Nevis travel guides I’ve written for more inspiration.

Looking for an island escape a little closer to home? Take a look at this guide to paradise islands in Europe compiled by the travel team at Opodo!

Prefer to book a historic city break? You could explore the beautiful old town of Tallinn (there are some absolutely stunning cobbled streets and wooden front doors), or get lost in the streets of Paris!

Want a long-haul adventure? For Europeans a trip to New Zealand can be costly, so why not make the most of your £1000 voucher and book to visit the real middle earth? Fjords, mountains, rivers, lakes, and epic coastline make the country a must-see for anyone who loves outdoor adventures.


So how do you enter to win a £1000 travel voucher from Opodo?

Full details and all the Ts&Cs can be found here, but this is really all you need to know:
