Costa Rica Pages is happy to announce the contest entry:
has won our first ever travel writing contest!
The colorful, Jack Kerouac style tale describes one woman’s seemingly aimless New Year’s Eve journey across America to discover life in its truest form, unscripted, unplanned and uncertain. As the title states, the author described this journey and life itself as valuing just as much, if not more, than the destination. She learned to keep her eyes open around every turn and keep a positive outlook despite not knowing what to expect!
We here at Costa Rica Pages went through an extensive voting process to make sure a definite and deserving winner was determined. In the end, the entry won by just one vote!! Based on the high quality of so many of the entries received, we are listing the 2nd and 3rd place winners as well as a runner up and honorable mentions.
2nd Place: Lessons Not Learned from Books (Cambodia)
3rd Place: How I Discovered the Heart of Love (Denmark and Europe)
Runner Up: Hanging Out with Dad (Italy)
And, to prove even further the extensive amount of high quality entries, we would like to list the following as “Honorable Mentions”:
