Winner of the $159 BattleTrip Giveaway Announced!

First of all, thank you to everyone who participated in the very first giveaway ever on thedelhibride – all 24 of you! ๐Ÿ™‚ That includes the boys!

Some of you shared such personal details about your love life, about making it through long-distance relationships and about honeymoons that were never taken when they should’ve been. I’m amazed at how much each and everyone of you has gone through, all in the name of love! Love really does make the world go ’round, hunh?

Nevertheless, there can be only one winner. I was looking for someone who really needed the helper, who would benefit most from getting BattleTrip to create a custom-made trip for them. Someone whose needs could not be fulfilled by a travel agent or a guide book. Because they were looking for something different. An off-beat kind of honeymoon.

As I narrowed down my list to 7 potential people who could win, I had a hard time choosing the final one. When I finally did, I realised she’s the fiancee of one of the remaining 6 on that list!
And her name is

Bhavna Singh!

Congrats to you & Mehul! Mehul was also in the Top 7 list, but it’s your entry that made me giggle and totally won me over!

You guys deserve the $159 BattelTrip Honeymoon Helper, to help you finally pick a place for your honeymoon and make it an off-beat, unforgettable memory! And Bhavna, that Australia honeymoon post is so past its due date, but I’ll put it up whenever I find a full day to just sit and write all day! You won’t know it, but those days don’t come by so often for me now. In the meantime, feel free to pick my brains if you end up choosing Australia as your honeymoon spot. Although you won’t need to after having won the Honeymoon Helper!

Bhavna, please send me a mail at thedelhibride@gmail to get all the details on your prize.

Once again, thank you to everyone for participating. Special shout out to Arpita who wrote a whole POEM as an entry! Totally flattering!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Priyanka, you can totally email me to bounce off ideas for a different kind of trip (not the boring ones – even I’m so not into them!) and Banashree – I really hope you do get to go on your ideal honeymoon very soon!

Till the next giveaway! Which shouldn’t be too far away ๐Ÿ˜‰
