Many people save up their entire lives for that once-in-a-lifetime trip to Hawaii; some even put it at the top of their bucket lists of things to do before they “kick the bucket,” so to speak. If you could get a dream getaway to the Hawaiian Islands, what would you do?
A beautiful Honolulu sunset that visitors can enjoy while they’re on Oahu.
That’s what Aqua Hotels & Resorts are asking in its first Pinterest contest called “Pin Hawaii: Hawaii Bucket List Contest.” Instead of using words to describe their dream trip, entrants will “pin” images to illustrate their answers and to portray the stunning scenery of Hawaii. Pinterest (www.Pinterest.com) is social networking’s newest phenomenon, where users pin images of their interests to a virtual cork board.
The winner will be granted that bucket list trip to Hawaii, which includes free airfare and a five-night stay for two at one of Aqua Waikiki’s boutique hotels. The pinner winner will be announced on May 1, 2012. Be sure to include at least one pinned photo from the Aqua’s Pinterest pages (aquahotels), where they also offer a few bits of inspiration: “Stand up paddle along Kauai’s Na Pali Coast?” Or “Watch the sunrise at Haleakala?”
That’s a tough one. My answer would be, both! Although, Aqua says there is no right or wrong way to spend a vacay in the islands and encourages entrants to show rather than tell, since a picture’s worth a thousand words, right?
