Introducing Expedia Find Yours Campaign – Find Your #Calling

 

 

Introducing Expedia Find Yours Campaign 

 

Share your #Calling moment to win a travel voucher and free trip to Aruba from Expedia!

 

I remember the moment when I stepped into the boarding gate at Incheon Airport. It was my very first travel to overseas, I was alone, and I was heading to a country that I didn’t speak their language. I was an immature 20-year old.

 

Do you know the itchy-like feeling when you are on a rollercoaster, that you can feel something deep in your gut? It was like that. The moment I walked into the gate with my boarding pass was surreal, and my belly was itching from the nervousness. That was my very first and very special moment that changed my life completely.

 

I guess that was my Calling.

 

I always thought myself as a mature than friends who are my age, but I’ve learned I was just one little frog that living in a well who didn’t know the ocean. The information and the feelings I got from one-month trip to New Zealand are still living alive with me to this day. I learned about myself. If I didn’t go, I wouldn’t speak English at this very moment. If I didn’t go, I didn’t know the joy and the excitement of traveling the world. If I didn’t go, I didn’t have any interesting stories to share with all of you, today. If I didn’t go, there was no Runaway Juno.

 

 

I found my Calling; to travel, to explore and to challenge.

 

After a month long trip, I could feel that I was different. My view was wider, I was braver, I was kinder and wiser. I was the bigger world out there, realized how small individual I was, and how much more to learn and experience other than school. How ‘backpacking’ can change everything about the person? It can. I’m the living proof.

 

 

We all have the moment. If you are reading my story right now, I’m sure you have the special moment during your travels. The moment that you found something new: about the world, about life and about yourself. Can you define the moment with one word? What would that be?

 

The reason why I was going on and on about the word and the moment is to introduce Expedia’s new campaign, “Find Yours”. Every trip we take is to defining a moment. No one experience the exact same feeling even from a same place. We all have point of view. We all look for off the beaten path, and that indicates that we all want a different experience that only ‘we’ can define. With the amount of information out there, it’s more than possible to plan a unique trip. Independent travel is not someone else’s quest anymore. We want something different. Something personal, something special. And that’s what Expedia’s new campaign “Find Yours’ is all about. Watch the new campaign video to get the idea better.

 

 

Now, it’s not just about introducing campaign; I want to share this opportunity with all of you by Expedia Find Yours Twitter Photo Contest. I want to hear your special moment. I want to hear your story about what was your moment of ‘Calling’. You can win free trip to Aruba and vouchers by sharing your stories with me.

    How I wish I could travel a lot but my pocket and mind won’t let me. Yes, I’m still saving on it and still thinking about. I guess, I need much more motivation in order to purse travelling. I admire your courage and effort.. a lot! 🙂 Hope to be travelling soon! Thanks!
