the tripfiction treasure huntThe TripFiction Treasure Hunt No. 2.

The response from our readers to our first #TFTreasurehunt was amazing. So we felt inspired to create another one!

Filling a backpack with top books (oh, and a few other items too!) is what we do to inspire #literarywanderlust.

The Roxy Surf bag to the left is filled with three ace titles, 3 TripFiction favourite reads of 2016. PLUS a wonderful Marco Polo Travel Journal, ready for you to fill with stories of your adventures. Plus a mystery item on DAY 4.

Starting today, Sunday 20th November, the #TFTreasurehunt will span 4 days. 4 clues. After day 4 send your 4 answers to [email protected] by midnight UK time on Saturday 26 November to be in with a chance of winning, first person out of the hat on Sunday….

READY? GOOD LUCK!
