Shareable Storytelling Contest

Making a connection with local people when you travel makes your travels more meaningful and fun - and sometimes even changes your life. Whether it's gaining a new perspective or making a new friend, Tripping leaves you with colorful stories and memories of your trips.

Our friends at Shareable Magazine want you to share those stories. They're holding a storytelling contest to celebrate the launch of their new book, Share or Die, which highlights the importance of sharing.

Submit a story about how connecting with a local person has changed your life to win a $1000 credit! Enter the contest or view storiesthat have already been submitted.

You have until July 23, 2012 to submit your entry.

Good luck everyone!
