Week 1 of our Catch the World contest is up, and we’re on our way to choosing which travelers will win one of five $2,000 vouchers to use toward travel on Vayama.com, as well as the grand prize—a trip to Copenhagen! Do not despair: there are five more weeks to go, up to 30 more finalists to be chosen. And all you have to do is post descriptions of your great travel experiences. Start uploading!

Congratulations to our first six finalists: Teryll Hopper, Steve McCall, Sivan Askayo, Jill Richardson, Kimberley Lovato, and Leah Madsen. We’ll be updating this “Catch the World” Wanderlist each week with our finalists.

Check out the Contest Official Rules for details and entry deadline dates.
