Do you know how to put your adventures into words or have you always imagined yourself exploring the world? Write your #GoExplore story in less than 3,000 words and win a GoPro Hero camera to get your adventures on camera, or alternatively €150!
Adventures make incredible tales – from Jules Verne’s classics to the modern travel stories we see today; they allow you to explore the world through the eyes of someone else. Adventures are exciting – whether they are about travelling, summer love, extreme sports, starting a new job, an unexpected turn of the day or something breathtaking in a fantasy world your protagonist lives in.
