Skype's Travel Challenge Could Send You Around the World

To what limits would you want to be challenged? If you’re like travel videographer and member of Skype’s Moment Makers program, Mike Corey, the answer is: Bring it.

Corey took part in Rerouted: a Skype travel challenge, which dropped him off in Europe without an itinerary. A Skype-selected local met Corey in each country he visited to give him a clue as to where he was going and what he was doing next—from bungee-jumping in Italy to battling an oil-wrestling champion in Turkey.

Now, Windows 8.1 and Skype are giving travel enthusiasts the chance to have their own journey. The winner will receive a two-week trip through Europe for themselves plus a guest, along with travel equipment to document the time abroad. Enter here for your chance to win the ultimate European vacation.
