Get away to Victoria with @Hummingbird604 and @MagnoliaHtl (giveaway)
Among the crazy things I love doing is getting away, be it within my own city (a “staycation” as they call it) or within relative close distance of my home town, Vancouver. I recently stayed at the Magnolia Hotel, a boutique hotel located in downtown Victoria. In fact, I enjoyed my visit so much that I came back for a quick overnight visit recently, and I brought along my mom.
You may remember that I also enjoy trying to provide opportunities for my readers to taste things that they might not think or plan to enjoy themselves. Thanks to the kindness of many of my partners in the industry I’m able to offer “staycations” and getaways, and this time I’m partnering with the awesome folks of the Magnolia Hotel to offer you an opportunity to win a weekend holiday getaway.
The prize package consists of 2 nights accommodation at the Magnolia Hotel, $100 credit for the Magnolia Hotel spa and free parking (in case you decide to drive into Victoria). This prize pack should give the lucky winner a nice opportunity to enjoy the many things that you can do in the capital city of British Columbia.
To enter my giveaway all you need to do is comment on this post telling me (if you have visited Victoria before), what activities you enjoy doing while there, and in case you have never visited Victoria, what you might want to check out on your getaway. You can also earn an additional entry by posting the following text on your Twitter stream (total of 2 entries):
