Pipa the smiling dog

We’re excited to say we’re hosting round #47 of Travel Photo Roulette! Thank you so much to 2away for choosing our photo of Pipa the smiling dog. We were completely blown away to win the 46th round of this brilliant contest. It was started by Jeremy over at Living the Dream almost 2 years ago as a way for travel bloggers to showcase their best photography. For each round a new theme is chosen, and independent travel bloggers are asked to submit their photos. Then a winner is chosen to host (and judge) the following round.

So it is with great pleasure that we announce this week’s competition theme: Excellent Splendour of the Universe! Read more
