All these goodies, collected over the past 6ish months of travel, are looking for new homes. Will one of them end up at your place??

AvGeek Goodies Giveaway

I collect all sorts of fun stuff at the various shows and events I attend around the world every year but I also live in a relatively small apartment and cannot possibly keep all of it. Plus, giving it away to others is a lot of fun. And so, once again, it is time to pick 30+ lucky readers and share the goodies. Prizes range from notebooks and hats and bags to model planes (Qatar Airways 787 1:200 scale is the best in that category this time around) and business class amenity kits and more.

All these goodies, collected over the past 6ish months of travel, are looking for new homes. Will one of them end up at your place??

I stuffed them and sealed them without much care for tracking what’s inside and winners will get an address labels stuck on one randomly and it’ll send out at the end of the week; winners to be picked throughout the week and no later than Friday.

    My favourite travel memory is my second time going TA, with Aer Lingus from Dublin – Boston. The flight was half empty, as there was a storm that had ended a bit early and people weren’t sure if the flight would go ahead.

    I ended up lying in a 4 seat row for the flight, reading and watching movies my mother didn’t want me watching (I was 14!)

    I’m generally a bigger fan of photos from trips than I am of trinkets, but there is something to be said for bringing home local crafts found at tiny little roadside stands far from most tourists. My personal favorite is the hand carved slate bowl from a small Mayan village in Belize.
