The BIG BANG Just Travelous Relaunch Contest


*** This contest is over. All winners were notified by Email. If you were not lucky this time don’t be sad! There will be more prizes to win soon!***

When someone would have told me in February 2011 where things would lead to with this baby here, I would have said: “Dude, never ever!”. And here we are. Two years, countless countries, millions hurried suitcase-packing-actions and myriads of unforgettable experiences later. It’s my baby’s birthday! And my present was a new outfit! FINALLY I HAVE A LOGO! AND A BRAND NEW DESIGN! (You have no idea how many nerves got lost during this process). And I’m as proud as a mother could be. But without all of you, this would never be possible. That’s why I want to THANK YOU.

With a super-duper BIG BANG JUST TRAVELOUS RELAUNCH Contest! Here we go!

You can win:

1. A flight to L.A. for 2 persons with airberlin

(Round trip from Europe, valid until 31.12.2014)


Did you notice the amazing picture in my 2012 review video I made out of an airberlin plane? And sigh, L.A. is still on my bucket list. Maybe 2014.

2. One week stay for 2 persons incl. half board in the Sensimar Aguait Resort & Spa**** in Majorca

(double room, must be redeemed in summer season 2013)

Sensimar Aguait

I’ve been to the newly opened Sensimar in Khao Lak in November. You can read about my thoughts about this hotel here.

Including a Scooter Tour for 2 persons with rent-a-guide in Majorca

The lucky winner of the stay in the Sensimar gets this on top.

If you’re not into scooters – don’t worry!

You can also choose another tour in Majorca with rent-a-guide if you want to.

(Worth: 100,00 €)


3. A Canon 650D/Kit 18-55mm

EOS 650D FRT LCD OPEN w EF-S 18-55mm

I often get asked which camera I’m using for my pictures and travel videos. And as I do love my Canon 600D so much, I thought one of you will love it just as much. And Canon thinks so too.

4. 1 weekend for 2 persons in the 25hours Hotel Zurich West


Last year I’ve been to the 25hours hotel in Vienna and did not only love the door signs!

5. A helicopter tour in New York City with GetYourGuide

(Or another equivalent tour)

This one time you’re going to be in New York City you really should see it from up in the air, right?

6. A weekend for 2 persons incl. breakfast and massage in the Falkensteiner Hotel Belgrade

Sometimes you deserve a wellness weekend. And if this happens to be in Belgrade I think that’s a pretty good deal.

7. 1×2 flight à 30 minutes in an iPILOT-Simulator

(To be redeemed in Munich, Dusseldorf, London, Zurich, Prague or Dubai)

To be in a cockpit is amazing! And here you can be the pilot!

8. 2 nights for 2 persons with HostelBookers

(In a destination of your choice from the HostelBookers’ website. Worth: 200 €)

hostelbookers hostels

During our trip through Southeast Asia Susi and me often stayed in HostelBookers hostels. My favourites are the Refill Now in Bangkok and the Bon Ca Va in Chiang Mai. If you need any recommendations – you know how to contact me!

9. Two vouchers for Bergfreunde, worth €50 and €25


Bergfreunde helped me a lot to survive my trip to Mongolia. And Vodka for sure.

I told you: BIG BANG!!!

Thanks to all the sponsors of this travelous prizes and especially to Chris from rtwlabs, Nina from Smaracuja and last but not least to my brother Johannes, the best brother in the world, for making this all happen! Love you all.

Hi, I'm Yvonne. Travel addict. Guilty as charged. Right now I'm probably falling off a camel somewhere in a desert, getting a new tattoo from a monk in Thailand or am carrying my luggage through a river in the jungle. But just as well I could be sitting on my sofa in Berlin, in my pyjamas. Good girls to to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. Everywhere sounds much more promising. So be travelous and follow me!

  2. So happy to finally see it all coming together. I hope you’ll enjoy your new logo and website as long as possible and thanks to chris and johannes for sharing the burden of Yvonne’s blood and tears over the past few days. I think at least one of us deserves to win a big bang prize!! 😉


    • Yvonne

      Thanks so much for your help!!! Love you big time!!! (And yes, the next relaunch will take a while) 😉

  3. Wahnsinn! 😀 Tolles neues Design, gefällt mir wirklich sehr gut.

    Und die ganzen Preise erst noch. Sieht nach einem Haufen Arbeit aus, dass alles zu organisieren. Am meisten würden mich die zwei Nächte über Hostelbookers freuen, weil ich im August/September für vier Wochen nach Portugal will.

  4. Happy Birthday!!!!! Woow, was für ein tolles Candy!!! 🙂 Die Preise sind einfach fantastisch!!! Ich würde mich sooo sehr über einen Flug nach LA freuen, da es schon immer ein Traum von meinem Mann und mir war einmal in die Stadt der Engel zu fliegen! Ich wünsche noch gaaanz viel Spaß beim feiern.

  5. Lady, dat is ne Wucht! Well done… ich denke, ich bin registriert und drück mir selbst jetzt mal janz fest die Daumen 🙂 Schaut super aus!!!

  6. Winning would be the perfect way to do a little on-the-ground research for my potentially travel-related marketing thesis! And celebrate the completion of my two Masters degrees. 🙂

  7. I deserve to win Big Bang because this contest is perfect for anyone who loves to travel as much as I do. It would be travelous to win because I love experiencing new things and seeing new places!

  8. I did a redesign last year and know how much work and stress it can be. 🙂 Yours looks great. I deserve one of these prizes because I never win anything…and I REALLY want that camera!! I have been waiting and waiting to upgrade and would get tons of use out of it.

  9. Great job you guys!! I deserve on of these prizes because I love to travel and take pictures. I would love the camera and would share the pictures with everyone!!

  10. The world is travelous and if I don’t get out there to see – how will I ever know if the grass is greener on the other side of that fence?

    Btw, you’re right, I signed up for the newsletter and WOW! I do feel sexier!!! 😀

  11. Sooo viele tolle Reisen…..aber ich hofe, ich gewinne die Kamera!!! 😀 Die könnte ich so gut gebrauchen für meinen Marrakesh-Trip im März und wenn ich es endlich schaffen sollte, 2014 eine große Reise zu machen.

    Aber über ne Reise würde ich mich natürlich auch freuen. 😉

    • Yvonne

      Haha, nooo. There will be 9 winners! 😉 It’s a BIG BANG! And I want to make as many readers happy as I can! 😀

  12. Das ist ein wirklich beeindruckender Blog und das Gewinnspiel ist gut konzipiert. Ich hoff mal auf einen Gewinn um aus den Bergen herauszukommen… LG Marco 🙂

  13. Just found your site…AMAZING and inspirational. I love travel….you have my dream job (jealous much…erm YES!!!). Will definitely be following from now on.
    P.S. My fingers are crossed for a competition win. xxx

  14. What a cool contest! There will be lot of winners 🙂 I know the first place is probably the highest value, but I think the coolest is the helicopter ride!

  15. Awesome giveaway(s)! I really don’t know what I’d like most, but the camera or airfare would be pretty sweet! I think I deserve to win something because I am just so darn IN LOVE with traveling. When most of my friends are buying houses and cars, I am spending my cash on trips around the world. There’s never enough time or funds to do everything I’d like to, however, so winning something from your giveaway would make things a lot easier! Thanks a bunch!

  16. Ich würde mich abnormal über einen Urlaub mit meinem Freund freuen, ganz egal wohin, weil wir beide im Moment leider noch arme Kirchenmäuse sind, aber soo Bock haben zu reisen 🙂

  17. This is the last year I’m going to be based in France (sort of. I gave up my place) and I really, really want to go all out and travel this summer…. sadly, I have run out of savings so I need to find a way to do it. I would love for a miracle to occur… like winning this contest… so that I can travel. 🙂

  18. Happy birthday!
    Love the new design and love your competition!
    What an awesome job you’ve done over the past two years – here’s to many more fun years to come!!

  19. Beautiful design and amazing contest! I don’t know which price i would prefer, but escaping to LA sounds amazing! I deserve a nice vacation after hard working!

  20. I love travel and I think this contest is ‘just travelous’ ;)! Winning this contest would give me the chance to continuing wandering around the globe (and writing/photographing) it! Have a great day 🙂 p.s. Great design by the way!

  21. Congratulations on your 2 yr anniversary! Looking forward to catching up on all your travel posts retroactively. Also will be reading all your future posts on your exciting travels.

  22. Hmm I never been go abroad, I even dont have any passport. I think I can go crazy and lose my mind if I win this competition. Many people call me nerd just because I spend most of my time study in library. I think I can be the coolest person in my college if I win this. I really hope and pray to god.

  23. I’m living abroad in Buenos Aires and living off the peso which is by far the biggest challenge I’ve been give in life! I’ve been working my behind off the past year (I’m a cook!) and have finally saved up enough to travel this summer for my first Europe trip. I’ll be hosteling it, no doubt, and would looooove a quick dose of luxury. Fingers crossed!!!!!!!

    A huge thanks for all the travel tips!!

  24. Such a cool contest and amazing blog. I hope to have one that’s as well known and big as yours! happy travels 🙂

  25. Just found out about your blog and I’m loving it! 🙂 The design is very cool too, and love these awesome prizes 😀
    Happy travels!

  26. Holy guacamole. Happy Blogaversary is first due! Feliz Relaunch- the site looks marvelous 🙂

    Winning any of these prizes would be just travelous, 🙂

    But my eyes are on the trip to Majorca 🙂

  27. These prizes look great. I’d love to treat my girlfriend to a new camera, or maybe one of the amazing trips like the ones in Majorca or New York. Fingers crossed I can win something and give her a lovely surprise!

  28. Thanks for the fantastic contest. I’m new to your site and really enjoying it so far. Nice to read more about someone based in W. Europe (I am Brussels based).

    I would like the wellness weekend in Belgrade! Well, any prize actually 🙂 But that in particular sounds nice, especially as I’m planning a long Balkans trip for the coming months. It’ll be truly exciting to visit that region in Europe. Not sure if Belgrade should be the first or last stop.

    Am I just travelous enough for a prize? Well I hope so :-p! There won’t be any traveling for 4 months as I write my Masters dissertation, and after that submission, I’ll be travelous enough for anything!

  29. Congratulations to your 2 year blogaversary!!!
    Ein toller Blog mit interessanten und lustige Beiträge in both languages! BRAVO!! weiterso!
    Why should I win? why not when there are such fabulous trevlous giveaways!!

    You rock Girl!

  30. Hallo, super Preise. Ich würde mich schon gerne auf die Kamera freuen. Ein Urlaub auf Mallorca oder L.A. würde mir auch gefallen. Ich drücke allen die Daumen, ihr mir hoffentlich auch. Wäre auch ein nachträgliches Geburtstagsgeschenk für mich. Es wäre auch eine Überraschung für meinen Freund, so ein Gewinn. So und jetzt viel Glück. Mfg Christin
