This Life in Trips is Going on a #GreatCoastRoadTrip !
Awesome news friends! I have been selected to hit the road for the inaugural ‘#GreatCoastRoadTrip‘ thanks to Coast Hotels and Zipcar. I will be one of eight travel bloggers a part of a month long road trip that will span from the bright lights of the Northern skies to Hollywood. In early June I will be heading to Cali in search of sun, waves, and good times – snapping photos and writing about it along the way.
What does this mean?
Details are still to come. In the meantime here’s a blurb from the today’s official press release:
Fueling D.I.Y. Travel: Coast Hotels and Zipcar Hit the Road for Inaugural ‘Great Coast Road Trip’
Ride along with Coast Hotels and a fleet of bloggers as they drive across Canada and down the U.S. West Coast–sharing refreshingly local™ stories, photos and a Zipcar along the way
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 14, 2014 /CNW/ –
“We’re thrilled to kick off this interactive campaign and showcase our great accommodations, uniquely local experiences, and the adventurous spirit of the writers along the way,” said Sarah Kirby Yung, executive director, marketing & communications for Coast Hotels. “This will be a truly memorable journey for those participating, and we hope it will inspire those at home to plan their own summer road trip getaways and keep an eye out for our bright and colorful Great Coast Road Trip branded Zipcar as it passes through cities from Lethbridge, AB to Santa Barbara, CA.”
In April, Coast Hotels hosted a search for a budding blogger to join in this international journey, and has selected Shaun Robertson of This Life in Trips. Shaun submitted the winning application, which asked bloggers to fill out a short survey on what inspires them to travel and how they capture their memories. Shaun will join the seven other travel-savvy bloggers each completing one leg of the month-long promotion before handing off the Zipcar, a Ford Escape, to the next participant and keep the adventure going!
