CASTLES, walled villages and picturesque landscapes – these are all waiting for Wayne and Karen Hodson, Kingswood, who are the lucky winners of Fairfax Agricultural Media’s giveaway to travel Europe with Evergreen Tours.
Mr Hodson, who works in internet marketing, said he was shocked upon learning he had won the nationwide competition.
“I couldn’t believe it when we got the call, my wife kept saying, ‘are you sure it’s real?’,” he said. “I don’t know if we’ll believe it until we’re sitting on the boat.”
Mr Hodson said it was the trip of a lifetime, which he had been daydreaming about for years.
“I have a brother in Kadina and he knew I was pretty keen on river cruises so he told me about the competition,” he said.
Mr Hodson said they were still trying to work out when to travel.
“It’s a bit of a toss-up between seeing the Christmas Markets or going sometime when the weather is nice,” he said. “I really want to see some European history.”
