    Writing Competition (March): The most remarkable person I ever met while travelling...

    For our March Writing Competition, we’d like to hear your stories about the most remarkable person you’ve met while travelling.

    Have you ever met someone while travelling who has changed your life? Or who was inspirational or unique in some way? Perhaps a local showed you a magical corner of the city that hasn’t been feature in any guides. It could be you met someone abroad and decided to travel the world with them. Maybe you met someone who had dedicated their life to charity or whose principles or attitude you admired.

    Maybe you met a partner or a stranger who profoundly changed your perspective on the world.

    We’d like to hear your entertaining and inspiring stories about the most incredible person that you met. The writer of the best story will win a goody bag filled with prizes.

    Try to vividly evoke the setting in your story. Tell us where you were, the context, the build-up, more about your trip, but the focus should be on the person that you met.

    For the Writing Competition, post your story (no more than 700 words) via myWanderlust. Sign in or create an account, and upload your story to the Experiences section of the
    website. Give your Experience piece any title you like, but include “The most remarkable person I ever met while travelling” somewhere in the title so we can find your story.

    Closing date: Friday, March 17 at 10am.

    Please Note: you can enter from anywhere in the world, but we're only able to send prizes
    to UK addresses.
