New year, new tricks and new travel plans! Even if I haven’t been able to carry out all of my existing travel plans yet, but you need to have goals in your life, right!? I should learn to prioritize, among other things, also my travel plans. So many ideas and dream destinations, but sometimes it’s just too difficult to decide where to start. Sounds familiar?
Well, the solution to this problem was found very easily once travel search site momondo contacted me informing about a contest where you can find your dream travel destination and win free flights there. Dreamer as I am, this contest is like it’s made for me!
What comes to you, my friend, as a reader, the best news is yet to come: the contest is not only for bloggers, but also for readers! To participate, you only need to try momondo’s Trip Finder and comment on this blog post one destination that the Trip Finder suggests.

We actually found the Trip Finder to be quite an interesting tool, as there are so many dream destinations all over the world. How to pick only one? So, with my boyfriend Daniel, we sat down and started to think about the perfect destination for us.
We started by entering the amount of travelers and our maximum budget. Then we choose a beach holiday in Asia, as we love beaches and neither of us has ever been anywhere in Asia. And as my most active followers might remember, visiting all the continents is number 3 on my bucket list.

The Trip Finder found so many interesting suggestions matching our quite small budget, but one of them beat all the others: The Maldives! Palm trees, blazing sun, golden sand beaches and turquoise sea water aren’t the only reasons for The Maldives being the perfect destination: I have read that the whole island nation’s existence is in danger.
Today, 80 % of The Maldives is less than one meter above sea level, and according to IPCC forecasts it might take less than 100 years for The Maldives to become completely uninhabitable due to the rising sea water level. The fact that I would have the possibility to travel to a place that might not exist in 100 years makes The Maldives an even more intriguing destination. On the other hand, even a thought about an entire island nation disappearing completely is incredibly sad.
Only time will tell what happens to the Maldives, but Trip Finder did what it promised and found us another dream destination to add on our list. What really surprised me was the price of flights, as I didn’t even think the Maldives would be possible with our low travel budget!
About your dream holiday, don’t forget to try momondo’s Trip Finder and leave your comment to this blog post. All you need to do is name one destination of the Trip Finder’s suggestions by the 31st of January, and you are indeed one step closer to your dream holiday.
