Xperience Days $100 GC Giveaway

Do you have a big life item on your bucket list that you haven't checked off yet?  Something like a hot air balloon ride, or a drive in a racecar?  Xperience Days is a website where you can purchase a unique experience.  You could treat yourself; or it would make an amazing gift for someone special who has always longed to bungee jump, fly a helicopter, or have a relaxing spa day. 

These are the experiences that bring memories that make you smile years later.  Below is a picture of Paul and I on a Lewis and Clark rafting tour on the Niobrara River.  It was more than 10 years ago (note that Paul still had hair), but I still recall a fascination at the history facts learned. What a fun, warm day it was on the river! 
There are a wide variety of experiences available, and many are available for purchase for $100 or less.  The site is easy to search - I looked at several cities within a two hour drive of us.  I found a zipline canopy tour in Greensboro that I would love to do ($85).  The winner can also use the $100 GC towards a more expensive experience - like a hot air balloon ride (I found one available about 2 hours from me in Charlottesville, for $250), to make the cost more affordable. 

To enter, just click on the Rafflecopter giveaway below.  Readers, what bucket list experience do you dream of doing someday?

Disclaimer:  I have not purchased an experience from XperienceDays, but it looks like a wonderful website with many opportunities that I felt would be of interest to my readers.  I was not compensated in any way for this post.

The two of you look adorable as you do now....and how did you know I was just taking about zip lining over at UConn?? I had difficulty entering so I gave up...perhaps my connection?...:)JP

JDaniel4's Mom said...

Wow! Each of these sounds wonderful. I have done a zip line before. It would be lost of fun.

Sweet photo!

I was just thinking about things on my bucket list, and zip lining is one of them. I would love to be able to give Larry a chance to fly a helicopter.

Sally said...

LOVE that photo, and that you & Paul had a great experience. :)

I want to sail the Caribbean. I have the experience and the license, but I'll never get to do it. My wife won't go. :-(

I've already flown helos and fixed wing, sailed all seven seas (courtesy of the U.S. Navy), seen a lot of the world. So I guess missing out on one thing won't be so terrible.

Renegades said...

We tubed down the Niobrara and tanked down the Middle Loup. Fun fun things to do.

Sounds like a great giveaway Lisa -- I'd enter, but since I don't get off the farm much... have a great day!

Rafting on the Nantahala River sounds fun! We don't go up to the mountains very often, so this would be a neat experience for my husband and me.
