Johnny Depp gets it. When his character Jack Sparrow stood at the helm of the Black Pearl and said ‘Bring me that horizon’, he was talking about the sailor’s endless quest for new waters and unchartered shores (or at least shores unchartered by most major cruise liners).
It’s always great when you hear about ‘real’ people winning competitions and doubly terrific when you know their win is helping others. Last year, Jessie Wells of Queensland sold a book of raffle tickets for Amnesty International, and she won the Ticket Seller’s Prize – an Intrepid trip to Nepal.
“We think it’s great to have a prize draw for people who help out by selling tickets. We never imagined we would win, so it was a huge surprise and we feel so fortunate that our small contribution has led to this”, writes Jessie and new husband Paul. “Amnesty International has been an important part of our lives since we were teenagers, and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate our wedding by taking this incredible trip to the mountains and villages of Nepal. Thank you Amnesty International and Intrepid Travel for giving us this once in a lifetime opportunity, at the perfect time!”
