Win a family Holiday with Content and Calm

"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.  So, throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour, Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover" - Mark Twain.

Content and Calm have launched a nationwide search for the next budding Judith Chalmers and if your child has natural flair in front of the camera, then this competition is perfect for them!  All they need to do, is create a short, fun video sharing their favourite holiday memories, and they could win a family holiday to a luxury villa in Greece courtesy of Simpson Travel or an all-expenses paid trip to a top UK family attraction.

I blogged last year about our amazing trip to France, and Beansy couldn't wait to record his version for his entry into the competition.  He amazes me when he does things like this, as he refuses to plan what he is going to say, instead flying off the cuff and going with the flow.  He really is catching the trade winds in his sails and I am so proud of him.  I particularly like his mispronunciation of the word "Chateau" .  You can have a look at his entry here:

Content and Calm are looking for 10 budding travelbug reporters who will set off on an all-expenses paid adventure with their family and report back with insider tips and recommendations that will then be used as a series of online travel guide videos.

Here are six sample questions that you can use as a prompt and if you want to dress up in your favourite costume and shoot on location, then please feel free to do so.

1.       Tell us about your favourite holiday, where you went and what you did?
2.       What was the best element of the holiday and why?
3.       What was the worst part of the holiday?
4.       If your best friend went there tomorrow, what would you tell them to do?
5.       Who would you most love to go on holiday with?
6.       Who is more fun on holiday, mum or dad and why? 

Anyone can enter in just three easy steps:

1.       Take a quick video of your child chatting about their holiday

2.       Upload it to the Facebook App - Content and Calm Travelbug Competition*

3.       Get your friends and family voting

*terms and conditions apply.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with - Good Luck!

Peace and Love

S.A.M xoxo
