Wanderlust Giveaway

wanderlust (n.): \‘wän-dər-,ləst\ a very strong or irresistible impulse to travel (etymology: German, from wandern to wander + Lust, desire, pleasure)

Mon doux, it was Robert Louis Stevenson who proclaimed, “I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.” This quote alone so eloquently sums up everything that is Elisabeth Eaves, author of Wanderlust: A Love Affair with Five Continents. After years of navigating the world, she put pen to paper to record her transcontinental adventures – and now you have the chance to experience them!

Surprise, surprise, mes chéris! Café Fashionista has teamed up with Seal Press to bring two (2) ravishing readers their very own copy of Elisabeth Eaves’ Wanderlust: A Love Affair with Five Continents so that you too can experience her romantic trysts with cute boys, education in charming cultures, and journey to self-discovery!

To Enter the Wanderlust Giveaway:

For one (1) entry, leave a comment on this post stating where you would travel and why if, at this very moment, you could hop a plane to any location in the world, between now and Friday, August 12, 2011 at midnight PST.

For two (2) entries, Tweet about this giveaway, and leave a comment on this post stating where you would travel and why if, at this very moment, you could hop a plane to any location in the world, between now and Friday, August 12, 2011 at midnight PST with your Twitter URL.

For three (3) entries, become a follower of Café Fashionista on Blogger/Google Reader/Google Friend Connect, or Twitter @cafefashionista, and leave a comment on this post stating where you would travel and why if, at this very moment, you could hop a plane to any location in the world, between now and Friday, August 12, 2011 at midnight PST (if you are already a Café Fashionista follower, please say so in your comment).

I will randomly pick two (2) names out of a hat (who knows, it could be yours!), and announce the winner on Saturday, August 13, 2011.

Good luck everyone!

This Giveaway is open to Everyone – U.S., Canadian, and International residents!


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to The Paris Review for the pictures.

How exciting. I would love to go any place to get away from the heat and humidity we have here. Maybe try the beaches in Spain.

Ok this is SUCH a great giveaway! You're amazing! I have this on my wish list on amazon ever since you recommended it to me! I have a huge craving to go SO many places. I want to go to London, Paris, Tokyo, Africa (I want to go on a real safari!), Barcelona, Spain, Greece, Italy... the list is endless. I want to go and experience the culture of these places that seem so far from what I know, I want to know what's in fashion, I want to experience all the food, and how they live! This is a really long reason, but it's true... :)

I tweeted about it as well http://twitter.com/#!/sarah0hm, and you know I already follow your fabulous blog!

If I could hop on a plane and go anywhere right now, I'd go to Scandinavia where it's nice and cool and explore both the hip cities and the natural beauty of the fjords!

If I could hop on a plane I would love to spend some time in Austrailia, because there is nothing sexier than an Aussie accent. :)

cheshirecat said...

Right now I'd love to go to Rwanda to have a peak at a colony of gorillas.

Natasha said...

If I could hop a plane and go anywhere in the world, it would be NYC. I want to be somewhere I could just be invisible and I don't think I'd come back.

classiq said...

What a wonderful giveaway! There are so many places I would travel to. New York, Ireland, Morrocco (I don't know why, but it has always been a fascination to me) or Japan. Have a great weekend! :)

If I could hop on a plane today I would either go to Scotland and climb mountains in a pleasantly cool climate, or I would go to India try and see as much as possible, no matter how hot it is.

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

I've always wanted to go to New Zealand, especially since The Lord of The Rings trilogy was shot there. I've heard the sheep-to-human ratio is somewhere around 9:1. And that fascinates me.

Angela Leberte said...

I would travel to India, I think it looks so beautiful and I would love to ride an elephant:) Plus I would want to do some type of volunteering while I'm there, maybe in an orphanage!

Angela Leberte said...

Fiji Islands. I have the idea (& have heard) that is a magnificent place. I'd love to get a tan on those sands.

Tonya Holdren said...

I would go to Greece or Spain. I went to Spain and I loved how everybody there was so friendly and everything didn't feel so corporate, there were a lot of family run businesses there and it was very laid back and eco-friendly. I have always wanted to go to Greece for the history, and I have a feeling it is similar to Spain with the friendliness and the neat little family run restaurants and businesses.

Jessica said...

If I had the chance to travel anywhere in the world right now, I would go to the UK. More specifically, I would probably end up somewhere in Scotland, as that is where my lineage is traced back to, and I've always wanted to go back and explore the different places my family came from.
