Congratulations on being the first entrant, @naijatimez . However, you need to update the picture. The picture you included is copyrighted and therefore would disqualify you if you keep it. Thanks.

Hmmmm... I'm going to prepare my post, expect a big suprise :D, at least as far as originality and creativity goes

I look forward to your submission.

Well, my first submission is here:

Please check it out and point any corrections I might need to make. If time allows I might write two more unorthodox places I'd like to see one day.

I want go try this challenge

Posted using Partiko Android

Even I want to participate in this.
How can I do so.
Though I know I am not lucky enough, but still will want to give it a try.

It’s easy. Just follow the instructions on the post.

Resteem. I'm in :)

Can't wait to see your entry.

This looks fun. I would love to try this :D

I look forward to your entry.

Interesting contests and great prizes.
If I have time I will try my luck. I do not promise to participate but obviously there is a place I want to go. :)

:) NO :) Dubai :)

Dubai is really hot. All desert. They've got a few man-made structures from the oil money. Seeing your personality, I think you will hate it. There is a lot of class structure there. Meaning more benefits for the UAE's citizens, then Europeans and Americans, and then Asians are treated like second class.

I can understand what you say, but I do not really know much about DUBAI. What I want to see is the human ability, I really want to see the artificial islands and I also want to see way them build. :)

Have been living in Dubai for 4 years. You are right @nuoctuong!

Have you gone over to Abu Dhabi to live or visit, @adam.tran ?

Yea currently I’m living between those 2 cities:)

4 years is a long time!

I am approaching 4 years where I am now as well. Thinking about making a change as well.

Hi, what is the deadline for this contest?

End of day, July 21st. I definitely want to hear where your dream vacation is.

Sure anh, I hope that my entry will make you want to travel, too ^^

So amazing place

I hope you will join and write about your dream destination.

Yeah will post one soon. 👍

Hi @nuoctuong ! How do I link to this post as per the guidelines? Sorry, I am a #newbie and a #minnow ;)

You can just copy the link at the top from the browser address bar and paste it at the bottom. That will work.

Otherwise you can try to use the markdown codes which is something like this: [ link ] (url)

I've done it, thanks!!

I hope to submit my entry soon. Thanks.

I look forward to it.
