Win A Weekend Getaway Courtesy Of Tsogo Sun And Your Tiger Pal

TsogoSale1 - 800px wideThe competitions are coming in thick and fast on TFW these days folks which means I can finally reward my loyal readers with some boodle.

That’s right, boodle. I chose that word carefully to invoke piratey scenes of golden rolling dunes, blue skies, turquoise oceans and rum because if you play your cards right, that’s exactly what you’ll win.

See, my new buddies over at Tsogo Sun have officially launched a summer sale where you can save 25% on a holiday at one of their hotels in Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal or the Western Cape, but you gotta move fast, the offer closes tomorrow at 8pm!

Alternatively, you could just win a weekend getaway for two at one of the hotels listed in the link above by doing something I like to call “writing well”.



“Writing well” is not as easy as it looks on this site. Sure most people have a keyboard and can push the buttons on it, but can they push those buttons in exactly the right order to create something meaningful? Something that could win them the free weekend of a LIFETIME?!

Only one way to find out…

The rules are simple. Write me one sentence in the comments section below telling me why you need a holiday.

And please don’t give me a bleeding-heart story about some depressing tragedy you’ve endured that somehow qualifies you for a holiday.



This is not a soap opera, it’s a blog site for people with a sense of humour.

So the golden rule applies, make me laugh and you’re in with a fighting chance, capiche?

One sentence explaining why you need a holiday that is funny (the sentence, not the holiday).

If you feel your first attempt is rubbish, you are more than welcome to enter more than once, but try to cap it at 5 entries or you’ll start looking desperate and the other kids on the site will laugh at you.

Entries will close at 5pm and a winner will be announced tomorrow at 9am.

Here’s the small print in bolded writing:
