I initially hesitated to post this article because the prize does not seem to include airfare or meals; but then I remembered a road trip which included driving from Germany into Slovenia via Austria from north to south — and the scenery with the mountains and the rolling hills was breathtaking.

Because I would like more time to explore Austria, I decided to enter the sweepstakes. If I win, I will worry about flight arrangements later.

If you decide to participate in this sweepstakes, good luck to you, as I hope that you are the winner — if I do not win.

By the way, the answer to the easy question is 396 miles — so only a moment of your time and effort is required to participate in this sweepstakes.
