Win a Trip to London for the Royal Wedding
Hullo there! It’s the Travelocity Roaming Gnome here, and I’ve got to tell you, I’m just chuffed about the impending nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton—or as I like to call them, old Wills and his bird. Won’t they make a splendid couple?
As you can imagine, I was William’s first choice for best man, but I had to turn him down because I didn’t want Harry to be hurt. “Not to worry, old chum,” I said. “I’ll just make sure I’m guest of honor instead. I’ll even wear my very best pointy red hat. Oh wait, I’m always wearing my very best pointy red hat.”
William was thrilled that I’d be in attendance—Kate even asked if I’d walk her down the aisle, but I told her it might be a bit awkward because I’d probably get lost in her train—and so I told him I could go one better. “What if,” I suggested, “I brought two lucky chaps over with me from America for your big day? Make sure the US contingent is accounted for? The Obamas haven’t RSVPed yet, so you can’t rely on them to be your only American guests.”
Wills thought that was a brilliant idea, the best he’d heard since I told him marmite was particularly good with cheese, and so I’m here to offer you a splendid opportunity: if you’re lucky, you (yes, you!) could win a royally good trip to London, courtesy of our fine friends at Virgin Atlantic. You’ll jet across the pond in Virgin’s award-winning Upper Class cabin (they’ve even got a bar in there!), spend four nights at the swanky Kensington Hotel, then head back to the states once all the merriment is over (but not without experiencing Virgin’s incredible Upper Class Clubhouse at Heathrow airport. It’s marvelous, and you can quote me on that.)
So what do you say? Will you be my date to the wedding of the year? Just head to www.tvly.com/royalwedding to enter. See you there!
My name: The Travelocity Roaming Gnome
How I earn my keep: I roam the world finding great deals, upholding the Travelocity Guarantee, and looking rather handsome while doing it.
What kind of traveler I am: A small and perfectly-formed one.
Greatest travel lesson learned: Just because you can climb into the overhead baggage compartment and stay there for the rest of the flight, doesn’t mean you should.
Travel ambition: To never again miss my plane because I’ve stopped to take a photo with a fellow traveler who’s spotted me. Ah, it’s tough work being a charmingly lovable travel mascot, I’ll tell you that.
First thing I do in a new place: Make friends.
When I’m not traveling: I’m browsing the SkyMall catalogue, toasting crumpets, testing beard conditioners, and planning my next trip.
