Guess what? You just won an online sweepstakes. What are you going to do? Me? I’m going to celebrate with a tropical victory vacation in the South Pacific!
That’s right I’m going to start off by heading to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. I’m looking forward to beautiful white sand beaches and awesome snorkeling in the lagoon that surrounds the island. I’ll probably grab a hike to Raemaru or check out Papua Falls.
And of course there is the fabled Te Rue Manga otherwise known as The Needle. No, no, no it’s not Arya Stark’s blade from George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones, it’s a large needle shaped rock formation that can be seen from several locations around the island. True adventure seekers can attempt to climb it
But come on, what would a trip to the South Pacific be without a stop in the land down under? That’s right, the home of Men At Work, Rick Springfield and Crocodile Dundee! I mean if I’m in this hemisphere I’ve got to do some bonding with the local marsupial population.
Do you love animals? Cause in Brisbane, Australia you can check out the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. You can check out koala bears, kangaroos, wombats, Tasmanian devils, and indigenous birds and reptiles. And in fact in many cases you can touch and even feed the animals.
But after all that feel good communing with nature type stuff? I’m going to need a drink (and probably a shower too.) So how about the XXXX Brewery Tour? Don’t mind if I do, thank you very much.
You can learn all about the history of beer in Australia through the prism of this 130 year old Brewery. But what would the history of Australian be without some Australian beer?!?!? Well fear not because the tour concludes with a tasting session in their Ale House Bar. Im not sure what I’m most excited to taste the classic XXXX Gold or the XXXX Bright Summer Lager.
In fact XXXX Brewery is even having a sweepstakes where you and three mates (I love how that call your friends mates, it’s so cool.) can win a trip to the XXXX islands!!! A ten thousand dollar value!!!
