Unborn Melbourne: …to be updated after the trip

Posted in Miscellaneous by Vik on August 25, 2012

Tourism Victoria with Indiblogger has announced a contest: blog about your ‘ideal Melbourne Holiday’; you can even imagine and write. And if your entry is judged as the best two posts through the lenses of ‘creativity, relevance and interaction’ you get an all-expense paid 4-nights trip to Melbourne. If you don’t win a trip to Melbourne, then you get some consolation prize:  shopping vouchers or pen drive that you will enjoy in India only. Do participate if you feel ‘it is your time to visit Melbourne now’.

There is no dearth of text and images on Melbourne or Australia tourism on the web for would-be visitors and Melbourne enthusiasts. Those interested in winning the contest are reading and writing about it.

I know a bit about the place and have spent some time on the website linked here. But I am not going to write about it as suggested. I feel it would be better if I update the title of this post and add text and images after the trip—if I win that is.

So that is it.

I am choosing to visit the place, see it first hand and then write. And not the vice versa. If I get the chance, that is.

Vicarious excitement and experience would be good but it will certainly be second-rate. That is a truism.

So I will visit Melbourne and write about it, in that order. Melbourne deserves that; they say it exceeds expectations and imagination. Amen!
