Happy “Hump Day.” Today is DAY THREE of our week of giveaways, compliments of Workman Publishing.
Workman Publishing has a plethora of award winning books and unique calendars for women, men, adults and children. I’ve reviewed some of them in the past (search for Workman Publishing on my search bar to read those posts). Be sure to check them out (linked above). You can also find them on social media.
Today’s giveaway has to do with “escaping reality” and getting away. Trust me, there are plenty of times that I wouldn’t mind getting away from it all.
I have so many things I want to do. My “Bucket List” is a mile long! From owning a house, to having my own functioning garden, and from actually touching the Great Pyramids, to taking a boat ride down the Amazon river… and just about anything else you can think of (yes, even cage diving to see the Great White Sharks on the Great Barrier Reef near Australia AND skydiving). Trust me, I want to do it all, and see it all.
I want to travel. I used to travel a lot when I was younger. I’ve been to ever state from Maine to Florida, as well as California. I’ve also been to Mexica, Wales, England, France and Belgium. I almost went on a trip to Iceland when I was in college, and I was suppose to represent a seafood brand on a trip to Italy. Sadly, it didn’t pan out. I was so sad too because it was to the Amalfi coast in Italy, and I was going to be near Pompeii, which is also on my “Bucket List.”
One of the prizes in today’s package happens to be about Italy.
364 Days in Italy Picture-A-Day Wall Calendar 2023
Spend the year in Italy—marveling at its spectacular landscapes and architectural treasures.
Feel the power of Italy’s deeply rooted history, enjoying its diverse and tradition-steeped culinary delights. Immerse yourself in Italy’s wonders without leaving home. The winding, cypress-lined backroads of the Tuscan countryside. The extraordinary cave dwellings of Matera, one of the longest-inhabited places on Earth. Sunny seaside Sorrento, off whose shores Odysseus famously filled his sailors’ ears with wax so they wouldn’t be lured by the sirens’ songs. Each month is a tour of a distinctive region, with dozens of full-color photographs, maps, and text packed with highlights, lore, and traveler’s tips.
I would love to see all the amazing photos from all around Italy in this beautiful calendar. If I had this calendar, it would only trigger my wanderlust.
I mentioned that I’d love to visit the Amazon rainforest too. I know it can be dangerous (piranhas!), but it can also be absolutely beautiful. I would also love to learn more about the indigenous people who live there.
Something you can find in the Amazon rainforest is the super adorable sloth.
Fun fact, did you know that sloths are faster swimming in the water than they are on land? I didn’t even know they could swim!
Sloths are so adorable. They all have such a sweet, happy face.
The second prize in today’s giveaway is the Original Sloths Wall Calendar 2023.
From photographer, zoologist, and sloth lover Lucy Cooke, here is a year of the irresistible residents of sloth sanctuaries in Costa Rica doing what they do best: sleeping, cuddling with their friends, nibbling hibiscus flowers, and literally just hanging around. The photographs are accompanied by captions and fascinating facts about sloths: Did you know that if two males encounter each other in nature, they will fight by exchanging (very slow) swipes? With their sly smiles, gentle expressions, and unhurried way of life, it’s no wonder sloths—and The Original Sloths calendar—are so beloved. Printed on responsibly sourced paper.
I can only imagine how adorable this calendar is. Awww!
