Win a GoPro with Southall Travel and Girl Tweets World

We’re kicking off this week with a cool giveaway. I’ve teamed up with travel agency Southall Travel to offer one of you lucky readers the chance to win a GoPro HERO3. Weighing in at a scant 2.6 ounces, the HERO3 is lighter and smaller than the Original HD HERO camera and comes with built in Wi-Fi, so its even easier to share your awesome video footage.

Southall_Travel_Logo

Southall Travel are the UK’s leading travel agency for flights and holiday packages to India, one of my favourite destinations in the world, and an incredible country to capture on camera. Can you imagine the footage you’d be able to shoot on a GoPro from a wander through a Delhi market, a stroll along a Goan beach or a boat ride through the Keralan backwaters? I’ve got some great pictures from my visit to these places in 2010 but sadly no video footage. Maybe I should go back…

Go Pro Hero 3Anyway, back to the contest at hand. For your chance to win a GoPro HERO3 courtesy of Southall Travel tell us in the comments section of this post what destination you would like to capture on the GoPro. Once you’ve left your comment, simply enter your name and email address in the form below so that we have a way to contact you should you be lucky enough to win.

For extra chances to win you can share this contest on Twitter or give Southall Travel and Jayney Travels a like on Facebook (every entry helps!)

Our parents are in their 80s now and can’t have the same experience so my dream would be to use the GoPro to bring our experiences to their living rooms. How about walking up the leaning tower of Pisa on a cold December evening, or sitting in a sunny town square in Leipzig all from the comfort of their homes whilst it snows outside in Essex?

    Would love to take one of these white-water rafting down the Zambezi – I’ve been once, desperate to go again – best white water in the world!

    My husband wants one of these so he can film his ‘adventures’ as he blasts around muddily on a dirtbike. Seems like a waste to me; I’d use it in Thailand, whizzing along in Bangkok on the back of a moped taxi and in the markets, which are so amazing you can never take it all it at the time.

    Oooh what a great competition – thanks 🙂 I’m a massive water baby so I’d use the GoPro to make mini-films of as many oceans as I can get myself in to!
