Feeling Lucky, Pair of Tickets to Holland within Reach thanks to Holland/ KLM Contest

To clear things up first, this contest is not our idea.

We thought we should share it in case anyone (in the U.S) wants to try their lucky at winning a trip to Holland, a country with much to offer beyond tulips, gouda and windmills.

Airline KLM and Holland's official tourist office joined forces for this campaign.

How can you try your luck and what's the prize:

"With Just Be. In Holland you are given the chance to get a taste of Holland with a luxurious World Business Class trip for a 3-night hotel stay in Amsterdam for TWO! All you have to do to enter is head to the KLM or Holland Facebook page and answer what 10 cities the chosen U.S. cycling teams will be touring in Holland."

Visit the Holland and the KLM USA pages on Facebook, try your luck and see what happens.

Did Holland Tourist Office share snapshot of bicycles and canals (on Facebook) to make us green with envy?


I don't know if you will meet with local band Mecano (are they still active) and be drawn into discussing the guillotine and Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky as happened to me on my one and only visit to Amsterdam.

Contest ends on Sunday May 29, 2011 so there is no time to waste.
