All Aboard! Where’s the Roaming Gnome Going Next on Amtrak?
Ahoy there, chaps! Hmm, I believe “ahoy” might not be the right word for train travel. It’s your old pal the Travelocity Roaming Gnome, and I wanted to let you know that I’m choo-chooing my way around the country on Amtrak for the next few weeks.
Where am I going? Well, that’s all part of the fun! Every two days, I’ll post a clue about my next destination—along with a Polaroid of me looking very handsome—and it’ll be up to you to guess my next destination. Every time you do, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a smashing luxury travel pack, including a $1,500 Amtrak gift card and a $700 Apple gift card.
My only worry is that I might never want to get off the train. I’m having such a splendid time seeing the country from my seat. Do you think Amtrak has any openings for Gnome-sized conductors? I look very good in hats, we already know that.
Enough chatter! Head over to my Facebook page to play!
My name: The Travelocity Roaming Gnome
How I earn my keep: I roam the world finding great deals, upholding the Travelocity Guarantee, and looking rather handsome while doing it.
What kind of traveler I am: A small and perfectly-formed one.
Greatest travel lesson learned: Just because you can climb into the overhead baggage compartment and stay there for the rest of the flight, doesn’t mean you should.
Travel ambition: To never again miss my plane because I’ve stopped to take a photo with a fellow traveler who’s spotted me. Ah, it’s tough work being a charmingly lovable travel mascot, I’ll tell you that.
First thing I do in a new place: Make friends.
When I’m not traveling: I’m browsing the SkyMall catalogue, toasting crumpets, testing beard conditioners, and planning my next trip.
