This is simple. We'll give you a US$1,000 voucher to spend with one of our favourite adventure tour companies, All Points East. You can use the coupon against any one of their tours, with or without flights. Be sure to check their website as some of their tours cost under $1,000 so you could get the entire trip for free.
All you need to do is say why you want to win this voucher in 30 words or less by midnight, and we'll pick the winner.
You can real more about All Points East here.
Small print: The prize is valid until July 12, 2010, is not redeemable for Singha, cash or anything else and is subject to availability. Basically, the winner should buy their own beer, plan to holiday within a year and book early ;-)
If you spend less than the full $1,000 with All Points East, the balance is not refundable -- take a friend with you (we're available ;-) and offset two fares with the grand if you'd like.
My husband is deployed for 3 months when he gets back we are taking a trip to Thailand, Vietnam and Combodia. I want to make it memorable.

As much as I love Melbourne, it's not actually Vietnam. Please take me back there...

'Groundhog day' has become a permanent fixture of late. After months of procrastination, we've decided to chuck it in and set off on a new adventure. This would definitely help!

Armchair traveling reading novels, guides and forum posts is no substitute for the real thing. I have an incredible longing to become a part of the pictures and stories.

10 years of corporate slavery, chained to my desk
Finally resigned, figured there’s more to life
Now I have time to travel but not as much moolah to do it.

"30 words or less.... Now for me, that's a big limitation
- - - -
I'd use $1000 to explore more of SE Asia: it's a fascinating area.
I'd be better able to help other Travelfisher's get the best out of their holiday
- - - -
There, did it...
I just got retrenched - my husband did too
You’d think I’d be mad, but what can I do?
Sell the house, pack a bag, jet off overseas
With All Points East, it should be a breeze.

I think the very fact that I am no longer capable of counting to 30 demonstrates that I need a holiday BADLY. :)

Backpacked in Laos 16 years ago...would love to see how the country and people (and I) have changed over the years (preferably in some comfort with All Points East)!

I want to win so I can give it away to someone living in Bangkok on 30k/month that could not afford a holiday.

Southeast Asia brings out the dreamer in me. I can't say how I might change if I went there again, but it would certainly have a great impact.

I've been job hunting for 3 stressful months now. It'll be nice to fall asleep on a hammock after a nice cold Chang.

Travelfish describes South East Asia like a dream
We're going travelling as a team
To say we're excited at the least
In September "All Points East"

Wasn't sure if we were only allowed to post one but if so ignore this. It tells the personal story of a nagging girlfriend and an opportunity to have a get-away! Here goes:
As I write
She wants to fight
My girlfriend drives me mad
I know im bad
but would sure be glad
Some time away
Please dont make me stay!!!
It will be our first trip to SE Asia, and would love to do it in style! In addition, my sister will also be joining us, and is a student, so I would love to help cover the cost of her trip!

Husband and I full-time university students, have two part-time jobs each, and two kids (2&4)... Booked flights for family to Laos, but cant afford All Points East tour on our own.

For someone who hasn’t been anywhere at all, it would be awfully nice to win the ticket to do the biggest adventure of my life for my birthday.
#35 orangegutter has been a member since 12/7/2009. Posts: 1
Well it certainly would make the decision I'm about to make to quit the job and go traveling much less crazy! Many deserving entries above, but how many with the same birthday (give or take 4 days) as Travelfish?!

My wife and I got married this past Christmas and have yet to take our honeymoon. Winning this would motivate us to do the travelling we've only dreamed of!

I went to SE Asia last November and fell in love with the region, now I'm trying to figure how to get back! Love to tour with All Points East!!!

We're starting a family soon so we know our traveling days are numbered. There goes our travel kitty! Please sponsor our last hurrah before the spawn arrives :-)

Toss the job I did.
Packed the bag, housed the beast
I'll do as you bid.
I'm to Asia with All Points East
#46 wanderingjoe has been a member since 12/7/2009. Posts: 3
I'll be honest -- I'd just really like a free holiday.
#47 bangersmash has been a member since 12/7/2009. Posts: 3
OK thanks to everyone for the entries. It's midnight now and Travelfish HQ is shutting down for the evening -- ie., I'm going to bed!
We've passed all the entries over to All Points East and we'll announcing a winner tomorrow.
