Travel can change you, transforming the way you see the world and your place in it. These life-altering experiences often boil down to one unforgettable moment: reaching the summit of a mountain, stumbling across a colourful festival or catching a long-yearned-for glimpse of a tiger in the wild.

You can find plenty of inspiring stories on this theme in our new title, The Best Moment of your Life. But enough about us – this is your moment, which is why we’ve launched a competition giving you the chance to win a trip of a lifetime.

How to enter

Share your best ever travel experience by sending us a postcard. How? Visit the Explore Every Day hub to sign up. You’ll receive an email with details on how to send us your entry for free using the MyPostcard app. All you need is a great picture and an entertaining travel story! The entry we judge to be the most inspiring and engaging travel experience wins the prize.

Five runners up will also receive a copy of The Best Moment of your Life.
