Q&A with Donna McCarthy,
Winner of our 'Once in a Lifetime' Holiday Prize
How did it feel to be told you were the winner of our major prize?
Initially total disbelief as I thought someone was playing a joke on me, then cautious excitement and now that it has sunk in I'm over the moon. I can’t believe this has happened to me.
Have you ever won anything like this before?
I have never won anything. That’s probably why I was a little cautious especially given it is such a big prize.
Was it tough to decide between the five prizes?
No not really, I have always wanted to see the Northern Lights and go to South Africa and to be given the opportunity to choose between these two holidays was incredible.
What swayed you towards your final choice?
The timeframe in which the holiday had to be taken lined up perfectly with a trip we had been trying to plan to celebrate my 50th birthday in 2017. Planning that holiday was the reason we were at The Travel Expo in the first place.
Is this a destination you have always wanted to visit?
Like a lot of people, I think the Northern Lights is a bucket list destination. To have the chance to see the magic that is the Aurora Borealis in a beautiful country like Norway while crossing the Arctic Circle is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. Fingers crossed I get to see them!
Have you done anything like this trip before?
My husband and I have just started to do a bit of travel in the last couple of years since our daughter finished school. So this trip is certainly a big tick at the top of my bucket list destinations.
What are you most looking forward to about the holiday?
Definitely seeing the Aurora Borealis and crossing the Arctic Circle. Of course seeing Norway and Geirangerfjord is going to be very special as well. What an amazing way to spend your 50th Birthday!!
