Heads up: Fans of Tapas, Flamenco, and all things Spain have a few days left to enter the Institute of Tourism of Spain's "Best Feeling Ever" contest. The winner will receive a free weeklong trip to Spain for each of the next three years.
The contest seems pretty straightforward—you write a short note saying why you want to go, and then people on Facebook vote for your reason—but there are quite a few marginal ways to increase your chances of winning. You will be given daily tasks and questions, to be completed via Facebook or Twitter, and these add points to your total.
The contest is quite clearly aimed at boosting Spain's social media profile. Contestants can earn extra points for putting an "I [heart] Spain" logo in their Twitter profile picture, or adding Spain-centric tags to their posts.
But the prize is undeniably pretty cool. The winner will go on three pre-planned trips, staying exclusively at paradores, which are usually restored castles or monastaries. The routes focus on three aspects and/or regions of Spain: The Mediterranean Coast, wine and monastaries (odd combination), and its cultural and historical past.
