The winner of the Travelocity Gnome is:
Chris – We appreciate his love of David the Gnome and the British Isles!! We will contact you this week and get you your new travel companion.
Ruthanne and I come from a family who can appreciate a good gnome. Our parents have this little fellow:
We grew up watching David the Gnome after school, and even had a book about the history of gnomes.
Ruthanne has several gnomes.
And she and Evan even travel with one of them.
The first year we were married my awesome husband got me a gnome. His name is Comrade and he is pretty much amazing. He has traveled with us to see the tulip festivals in Washington State, and rode along with me as we drove across Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky when we moved to Louisville.
He would like to be a traveling gnome, but has pretty much stayed put for the last three years. He has been through some trials, but is still our loyal little house gnome. Currently living on a shelf to prevent any more dachshund related injuries.
We feel that everyone should have the opportunity to have a gnome in their lives, and so we asked Travelocity if they would be willing to sponsor a giveaway. Much to our surprise they quickly responded and and sent us this little fellow.
He is about eight inches tall and would be a perfect addition to your home and on your travels, whether you travel the world like Ruthanne or simply want a companion who sits on your desk while you write adventure novels.
