Contest Now Closed
The winner of the week 2 give-away (20k Starwood Points) is Samuel G here’s his story:
I would select prize number two. Five years ago I got engaged to a wonderful woman named Hau (which means Wish in Vietnamese.) She accepted my teenage daughter as if she were her own. My daughter loved her so much, like a mother, and wanted to learn everything she could about Hau’s culture and customs. A year before our wedding Hau was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and it progressed very quickly. She died 4 months before we were supposed to get married. Now it’s just me and my daughter. Hau and I never got to share our cultures with our daughter.
I would select trip #2 so that I could take my daughter on a tour to discover her heritage, including her would have been mom, Hau’s, heritage because she never stopped loving her.
I would fly on US Airways and would go to Germany, Vietnam and Thailand. I would go to Germany on Lufthansa so my daughter could learn about my past. I would then fly on Thai Airways to Bangkok so that my daughter could see the place that Hau and I met. I would then take a cheap flight to Vietnam on a low fare carrier so that we could explore Hau’s heritage together. I would fly back from Bangkok to the US on Thai Air.
This would be the trip of a lifetime and a dream come true.
Congratulations to Samuel G!
