If you are reading this blog, chances are travel has affected your life in some way. Whether it’s for fun or for work, travel gives people the opportunity to learn about themselves and the world around them.
To celebrate the transformative powers of travel, TownePlace Suites by Marriott is doing a photo contest called “Travel Turning Point.” Offering more than $10,000 in prizes, TownePlace Suites is asking travelers from across the United States and Canada to submit a photo and caption that describes how a travel experience has been a positive turning point in their lives.

I will certainly be entering the national Travel Turning Point contest, and hope you will to. We are doing a smaller contest here on Road Warriorette, and the winner will receive a $100 gift certificate from TownePlace Suites! Here’s the deal. To enter into the national contest, you have to upload a photo of a turning point in your travel journey, along with a 100 word caption. Obviously, we don’t have the ability to upload photos in comments here. So to enter the Road Warriorette contest, leave a comment describing a turning point in your travel life, or what will be the 100 word photo caption when you enter the national contest (see my example below). Of course, if you want to link to a photo I won’t tell you no! Contest runs from today until Sunday, June 9 at midnight CDT. As always, only one entry per person.
Here is a picture from a very important trip of my own:
While lying on a golden sandy beach in Maui, with the palm trees swaying above and dolphins playing in the distance, something internal shifted inside of me. I realized it was time to pursue my lifelong dream of being a writer, and start sharing my business travel experiences and lessons learned with others. The next week I started Road Warriorette, and set off on a transformative journey. Four years later I wouldn’t change a thing!
