Join us Monday for our Trip of a Lifetime Party online!

Cyclist meets Masai locals on iExplore holidayWe’re giving away the most incredible prizes on Monday night at a unique and oh-so-exciting travel themed party, and you don’t even need to get off the sofa to join us! We’re thrilled to be co-hosting the Trip of a Lifetime Twitter Party, a unique online gathering where we can talk adventure travel, active family holidays and ‘thrillaxing’.

Plans for the iExplore Trip of a Lifetime Twitter Party are well underway, featuring live adventure travel tweets and some rather incredible prize draws from @iExploreUK. It kicks off at 8 pm on Monday night, and you can join in from anywhere.

We’ll be tweeting live from @KidFriendly_UK about family holidays and travelling with children, and perhaps dreaming just a little about enjoying some adventures without the kids.

We’ll also be enjoying some Gap Year and adrenaline junkie style tweets from Amar (@gapyearescape) from Gap Year Escape . Laura (@londonbabymum) from London Baby will be on hand to chat (very excitedly) about baby friendly holidays, Nickie (@Nickie72) and her I Am Typecast followers will be joining us live from Lancashire.

The Prizes

Besides sharing your travel tales and chatting about your dream activity holiday, you’ll have the chance to win some amazing prizes. Entering the prize giveaways is free and very easy, but you’ll need to pay attention to the @iExploreUK tweets and have your fingers ready!

All of the 15 prizes listed below will be given away between 8 pm and 9:15 pm (approx) on Monday December 5th, and the more you join in the discussions and tweet with us, the better your chances of winning.

Here’s a sneak peak at the prizes… and no, you can’t win the iExplore cyclist meeting the Masai, WordPress just snuck her photo into the gallery!

5 x Kodak disposable underwater cameras

3 x Wallpaper Travel Guide book collections

2 x Olympus VG-120 compact HD digital camera, 14 megapixel, wide angle lens

2 x Mulberry wash bags, each worth £120

1 x Samsonite luggage, worth £179

Plus, one very lucky person will win the Grand Prize, one of each of the prizes listed above.

We’ll also give you the chance to chat about your Travel Type and of course will tell you more about how you can win a £5000 Trip of a Lifetime just by uploading your ‘thrillaxing’ photos to the competition app on the iExplore Facebook page.

In fact, if you get started uploading your photos now, you can tweet us about your competition entries during the party and you may even nab some of those precious votes.

When is the Trip of a Lifetime Twitter Party?

Monday, December 5th from 8 p.m. til 9:15 p.m.

Where is it?

Anywhere in the world! You’ll have to be a UK resident to be eligible for prizes, but anyone is welcome to join in the discussions at the party from any Twitter app.

Who can join the party?

There is something for everyone, whether you’re 18 and dreaming about a challenging trek in the Himalayas or teaching footie to kids in a remote corner of the world, 48 looking for a European wine tasting tour, or a family wanting to share some unforgettable moments together and do something more inspiring than lying on the beach.

iExplore covers family holidays, Gap Years, romantic smoochy stuff for couples, and some incredible solo travel adventures…. we’ll be talking about all of those, and look forward to hearing your travel tips and anecdotes, and even seeing your photos and videos.

How do I join the Twitter Party?

Just follow @iExploreUK or your co-host on Twitter and use the hashtag #TripOfALifetime in all your tweets.


We’ve set up a special Twitter hub just for the party, where you can read all the party tweets, chat with the other participants, and even share photos and videos. Our tame Twitter robot will even add the #TripOfALifetime hashtag for you automatically.
Just tweet below, or visit  for the big version with photos and other nice stuff.

So what are you waiting for? Make a note on your calendar or set the alarm on your phone, join our Twub, tell your friends, and get your fingers ready for some tweeting!

See you at the party!
