A couple of weeks ago we held a contest to give away a Go Pro Hero 960 HD Camera/Video adventure camera. Air Transat Holidays gave us a fabulous prize to give away for helping them promote their own holiday giveaway to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
We were thrilled with the response that we got and want to thank all of our readers that entered. Out of the 65 people that left their comments on how they could have used a Go Pro Hero Camera in the past, we chose (with the help of some friends) the finalists to go on to the next round.
You can see what they had to say at our Facebook fanpage if your not already a fan of our page, give us a like to join the conversations outside of the blog at The Planet D’s Round the World Adventures.
There was no way we could choose a winner on our own with all the great reasons people had for needing the Go Pro Hero, so we left it up to our fans and their friends to help them vote.
The person with the most “likes” wins.
Hailing from the Philippines Eldito secured a whopping 378 likes to get himself a brand new Go Pro Hero Camera to use at his dream location. He can finally get the shots he has always wanted at Hagukan “Snoring” Cavern in the Philippines.
“There’s a spot I really wish to take picture at. It’s called “Hagukan” or “Snoring” Cavern inside Sohoton Covein Bucas Grande Island, Socorro, Surigao del Norte Philippines. As water recedes during low tide thereby exposing its narrow entrance, the trapped air inside comes out thereby producing a snoring sound. You must have to swim your way in free style towards the center of the cavern approximately ten meters from the entrance where a hard coral platform submerged half a meter below sea level is located. As you look upwards, you can savor the magnificent stalactite and stalagmite formations in glittering whitish crystal colors which conjoins with the small amount of light coming from the pinched entrance that brightens the cavern. Glancing downward, you can see the illuminating waters resembling a vast array of glowing compact fluorescent lamps. How I wish I could have had a Go Pro Hero camera so I could take shots of this superb natural attraction and publish it for the readers to admire.”
We are so happy for Eldito and wish that we could have given a camera to everyone. But rest assured, we will be holding more contests at thePlanetD to give away great prizes.
Eldito, we’ll be contacting you for your information on where we can send this fabulous prize. When you get the photos done, you should send us over a guest post or photo story about these beautiful caves. We would love to help you promote such a magical location.
