WIN a signed copy of Tell Them to Get Lost!
November 7th, 2011
I’m giving away TWO signed copies of Tell Them to Get Lost. All you have to do is like me. Oh, and show me a potentially embarrasing photo of yourself. Just ‘Like’ the Brian Thacker Travel Writer Facebook page (you’ll find the Facebook link below on the right) and post a pic of yourself on your first ever trip overseas (all the photos I’ve seen of those hippies in 1974 with their bell-bottom pants inspired me). That’s me on the left back in 1987 on my first trip overseas at Madam Tussauds in London. I’m not quite sure why I’m dancing with the Pope, but I do have very nice high pants (when Edwin jeans were cool). On the 21st November I’ll pick two random winners, but you have to post a pic on the Facebook page! And just to embarrass myself a little further here are a few more photos from my first big trip OS…
Wearing my oh so bright brand new runners in a hotel room in Frankfurt on my first day on my first big trip OS!
Wearing my oh so bright brand new yellow ski jacket in Davos, Switzerland (I caught a train from Frankfurt and then spent three weeks blowing three months of travel budget skiing!)
Wearing my oh so cool sunglasses that I brought in 1986 (that were hidden away in a box for the 20 years until I discovered them and started wearing them again - but minus the leather straps!)
Wearing my oh so cool Wayfarers, pink Lacoste polo shirt and bright red socks. This is our bikie gang in Corfu, Greece.
Washing dishes in a kid’s summer camp in Salzkammergut, Austria with Adam from NY. And after 4 months of travel my mullet was coming along nicely!
I’m not sure what I’m doing in this fountain in Strasbourg, France and I’m not sure why I insisted on tucking my T-shirts into my board shorts!
My first birthday overseas. Well, not my 1st birthday, but you know what I mean. I’m in Zermatt, Switzerland and the candles are in the goop that was dessert in the Zermatt Youth Hostel!
Okay, so now it’s your turn. Let’s see those mullets, high pants and maybe even a bell-bottom or two…
