In “Rerouted: a Skype travel challenge,” travel blogger Mike Corey wound up bungee jumping in Italy, dancing in France and scuba diving in Greece. With the help of his friends on Skype and Twitter, Corey made it across Europe. Now, you have the chance to follow in his footsteps (bungee jumping is optional) with an all-expense paid trip that’s being offered by Skype.
For two weeks, you and a friend will travel across Europe, with stops in Istanbul, Athens, Milan and Montpellier, before ending your trip in Barcelona, writes Vanessa Henry on Skype’s Big Blog. And to document the trip, you’ll receive the same tools Corey used on his: a Surface Pro 2 and a Nokia Lumia 1020.
The contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada, and the promotion ends March 23. First, fill out the form. Then — and this part is important — sign into Skype on any device running Windows 8.1.
