We Need Your Vote: Help Send Dave (and Sven Wondermoose) to India!

Please Take Three Seconds and Help Us Join the Kerala Blog Express!

By Dave Fox

I received an invitation a couple of weeks ago to apply to participate in the Kerala Blog Express – a two-week tour for travel bloggers in the Kerala region of southwestern India. If I’m selected, Globejotting’s trusty travel mascot, Sven Wondermoose, will of course be joining me.

I’ll be writing a series of reports about this slice of land along the Arabian Sea coast, known for its natural beauty and wildlife, tranquil backwaters, coffee and tea plantations, tongue-rattling spices, and a diverse collage of cultures. Kerala has been listed as one of National Geographic Traveler’s “50 must-see destinations of a lifetime.”

But it’s not a simple invitation. The Kerala Tourism Board is seeking bloggers with a strong online following. One of their criteria for determining who gets to go is by asking our readers (you) to let them (the tourism board) know you’re out there.

Doing this takes approximately three seconds. (Maybe seven or eight if your Internet is slow.) All you need to do is:

  1. Click this link to my Kerala Blog Express page.
  2. Click the “VOTE” button beneath my photo.
  3. Stand by for stories from this exciting sliver of southern India.

(You might be asked to log in with a social media account such as Facebook. This is to prevent people from voting multiple times.)

If selected, Svenny and I will be heading to India in late February for a two-week writing spree.

We’d be extremely grateful if you’d take a few seconds to vote for us.
