And the winner of the “State You Love” contest is Abhijit Gupta…!
Yes, ultimately I have been declared the winner. The contest named “The State You Love” organized by HolidayIQ is over and surprisingly I have been announced the winner of the contest. It is really a great feeling that people across India have loved my review on Sikkim and voted for me. I have been reviewing many places of interest and tourist destinations on my blog www.traveldias.com and many other platforms like travel forums, communities, groups etc. Though I have gained recognitions from several platforms but this really special. I didn’t expect it and I never tracked the contest but finally when a mail shoots in my mail inbox declaring me as one of the top 5 finalist, I was really eager to win the contest then. The review on a place or region with highest number of likes on the Facebook page of HolidayIQ was supposed to be declared the winner of the contest and finally the likes came on my way declaring me the winner.
I wrote a review on Sikkim – my favorite destination in north-east India. I wrote it without any interest but to help travelers like what I have been doing since long. When I came to know that a popular travel portal has introduced review sections on its site, I thought the travelers who are attached to this portal and looking forward to visit Sikkim will surely need information and guidance. So I just posted my review with an intention to help other travelers. When I came to know that I had been declared one of the top 5 finalists, I knew I have to win it. By the grace of God I got most number of likes and here I am as the winner of the contest.
I thank all the people who voted for me and helped me to win this prestigious title. I am really feeling proud to be a top reviewer of Sikkim – my favorite destination in north east India. I thank Holiday IQ for organizing such a wonderful contest, looking forward to such more contests in future. I thank all the persons who appreciated my work.
Keep traveling, keep smiling…! 🙂
