Yup, you’re going to have the opportunity to take that sabbatical, take a year off from school, or put your unemployment situation to good use. We’re giving you the chance to take off for a year and all you have to do is put a little bit of your travel knowledge to the test.
The challenge? Guess the route of where the Round the World journey will take you.
The Grand Prize winner will receive the following:

Second Prize – Roundtrip travel anywhere in the continental United States on Southwest Airlines.
Participants have 8 weeks and 8 chances to enter. Here’s how it works:
Each week, participants guess the destination from the provided clues and then enter online. One winner will be randomly chosen from the correct answers each week and awarded a weekly prize. After 8 weeks–with 8 chances to win–everyone will know the route and there will be 8 finalists. One of those 8 finalists will win the Grand Prize package for 2 while 2 more winners will receive the First and Second Prize awards!
