New Photo Contest: Best Winter Vacation Envy (All entries win free premium membership!)

December 18, 2019


One of the best parts of living abroad is taking the vacation of your dreams during the winter holiday break.  Of course many of us go home for the holidays, and that is nice too!  Some teachers do a combination of going home to visit family and then taking another side vacation for some real rest and relaxation. It is possible that your trip to visit your family is also the trip of your dreams (well at least maybe for your colleagues that have never been there).

Once the winter holiday break starts, now comes all the photos that your friends post on Facebook and Instagram. Australia, Canary Islands, Costa Rica, etc. Leaving you maybe second guessing the trip that you actually decided long ago to do for yourself (and your partner/family).

So, if you are on one of those trips that is making your friends feel a bit envious, take a moment to participate in our new photo contest. Please note that all photo contest participants will win free premium membership to our website!

New Photo Contest: Best Selfie at an Amazing Location (All entries win free premium membership!)

April 16, 2016


It is basically a must nowadays. If you have a smart phone, it is pretty certain that you have taken a selfie.

There are some of us that take just one selfie a trip, but others are more obsessed with taking them. After the selfie is taken, then typically the next step is to post it on one or many social media websites.  How many likes will you get?!

To get the most likes, you need to take the selfie in an amazing location.  You need good lighting, a good hair day, and an amazing background behind you.

Let’s not forget though the (popular?) selfie stick. I’ve never tried one, but I suppose you can get an even better selfie if you have one.

I guess we need to just remember to put our smart phones and selfie sticks away, for at least a bit during our trips, so we can just take in where ever we are in the world.

So, take a moment to participate in our new photo contest. Please note that all photo contest participants will win free premium membership to our website!
