a home away from home

When we travel, we call wherever we're sleeping that night "home." It does not matter if it's a hotel or a house, it does not matter if we're there for one night or seven. Home is where we lay our head to rest.

Here is a clever sweeps. To enter, you select your potential prize, a vacation rental from Homeaway’s 115,000-plus property listings. I chose this one in Deruta, in Umbria. That pool certainly looks inviting. The winner has $10,000 at his/her disposal. Anything not applied to the rental value is theirs for airfare. A fun one. If I weren't pressed for time this morning, I would have clicked around the site longer. I did see enough properties to know that they range from low- to high-end. That's nice for a change, especially in this uncertain economy.

To enter, click HERE. One time entry. The sweeps closes October 10.
