Hopeful travelers are invited to share a personal, life-changing travel experience on Amble Resorts’ travel blog, The Ambler, for the chance to win a flight anywhere in the world. The individual who posts the winning entry will be rewarded with a free trip to the destination of their dreams in the form of a $1,500 travel voucher, valid anytime in 2012, on the airline of the winner’s choice.
By launching this contest, Amble Resorts is encouraging 2012 New Years’ resolutions to explore the world in search of adventure and immersion in place. It was an experience of this kind that first inspired Amble’s president, Benjamin Loomis, to found the eco-development company in 2007. Amble helps adventurous spirits from all over the globe to discover the unique cultural identities and incredible natural attributes of their chosen destinations while creating a community of travelers who share a passion to protect these precious resources.
“Travel is an intimate endeavor,” says Loomis. “You come away from a meaningful travel experience with your own perceptions and opinions. It’s these profoundly personal responses that we’re hoping everyone will share through the contest.” The contest reflects Amble’s mission to bring travelers into closer communion with the earth, other peoples, and each other. By publishing the contest entries as comments on The Ambler, Loomis hopes to spark conversations between travelers and travel enthusiasts who share a passion for adventure, culture, and the environment. This format also invites entrants to join The Ambler‘s growing travel community and read new articles published daily.
Last fall, Amble Resorts expanded their travel blog of three years by inviting travel writers and photographers to join them in their efforts to inspire and enlighten today’s most culturally sensitive and environmentally conscious travelers. Through informative articles, stunning photography, and firsthand experiences of travel writers from around the world, Amble is pioneering a new online source for travel advice. Going beyond traditional destination guides, The Ambler provides insider tips on adventures off the beaten path, lesser-known natural and cultural attractions, and secluded pieces of paradise hidden in popular tourism destinations, all presented with the ease and intimacy of a personal travel blog. The Ambler hopes to give a voice to today’s most discerning travelers and feed their appetite for life-changing travel in a forum that’s accessible to anyone with an interest in learning more about the world.
President Loomis envisions a future for The Ambler as a trusted resource for travelers from all over the world who want to find new meaning for their lives with every journey they take. Accordingly, Amble Resorts’ current development projects in Panama and Belize are designed to give travelers an intimate connection with the extraordinary natural surroundings of the location. “We’re blazing the trail to provide travelers with something they can’t find anywhere else: a luxury travel experience connected to the true spirit of a place,” says Loomis. “Our travelers respect the environment and local cultures; they recognize what is most precious in our world. We build resorts founded on these values while recognizing that the traveler’s time is precious, too. They want to be as close as possible to these life-changing experiences without sacrificing their time or comfort.”
Submissions to the Life-Changing Travel Contest will be accepted through January 15th, 2012. The top ten finalists, as chosen by Amble Resorts, will be posted to The Ambler on January 18th, 2012 for the public to vote on their favorites through January 31st, 2012, when the voting period will close. The life-changing travel experience that receives the most votes will be announced as the winner on February 1st, 2012.
