Watch out the thread police might get you...and me I guess as well

Back on topic...thanks to all who put in the hard work and discovered the answer. I went with New Zealand day one, but due to having no time chose Kauai on day 2. Lucky me if I get points, but I probably speled it wrong

Oh and I am waiting patiently for the big announcement....tonight

Personally I did quite a bit of searching, but ended up spnning my wheels looking in places like Spain, Greece, Brazil, and Australia...

At least I will be ready if the next destination is one of those. Which brings me to the point of this post. With only two more weeks, what do you think the last two destinations will be?

I think one of them should be in Australia, maybe the other one in Europe.

Thoughts?
I hope one of the next destinations is Europe. Talk about a multitude of clues to choose from for almost anywhere in Europe!

Have to admit that getting points is awesome, but finding Flyertalk.com has been a big bonus. I read comments on a lot of different sites, articles, etc. and this has to be the nicest (mostly) bunch I have come across!

Catch y'all on the flip flop for the last clue...

The turn around would have had to been pretty quick to have already traveled, but it has put the 'want/ need to travel' itch in my head.

I wouldn't stay at any other hotel than an IHG.

Don't take offense

In the last four or five weeks? Nope. Has it inspired me to think about future trips that I might otherwise have not done? YES! Will I stay at an IHG hotel because of the contest? YES! With the points earned here and CTC, IHG has definitely become more interesting to me.

HOPE:

Let's see a Day 4 clue something like this:

"Island paradise in the Pacific"

Thanks too all for your excellent "sleuthing" efforts. FT folks can crack any case.

exactly. it is almost as if they let one of the "interns" come up with this week's clues. while challenging enough, they were IMO too vague, unlike the Aruba clues. let's hope next week is better? LOL!

I have an idea where there was a delay with posting winners for week four, and why the grand prize winner is TBD.
The rules state the winners of week 4 and week 8 must sign and return an Afidaved within 10 days of being notified of winning. So they are probably waiting for this.

BTW, once again to those who think the adverts at the top of this page are 'revealing' the answer each week, the ads are just based on discussions here!!
