Edi­tor’s note

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - Escape - - FRONT PAGE -

IF YOU missed out on pick­ing the win­ner of the Emi­rates Mel­bourne Cup on Tues­day, don’t worry be­cause Emi­rates, APT and Es­cape have an­other chance for you to win.

This time we are giv­ing away two econ­omy-class air­fares to ei­ther Am­s­ter­dam or Prague, three nights’ ac­com­mo­da­tion in a first-class stan­dard ho­tel, cour­tesy of APT, re­turn air­port/ ho­tel/ air­port trans­fers and break­fast daily.

And, to give you a lit­tle taste of what you can ex­pect to see in Am­s­ter­dam, Es­cape to­day pub­lishes writer Craig Tans­ley’s guide to what to do in that amaz­ing Dutch city.

We also take a look at what life on board APT’s ship Ama­bella is like as it cruises down the Danube. River cruis­ing is a boom­ing in­dus­try. Aus­tralians have signed up to this form of hol­i­day with gusto. Staff writer Phillip Hud­son checked in to the float­ing ho­tel and dis­cov­ered that the pace was ‘‘ gen­tle but busy’’.

He also dis­cov­ered that de­spite all the amaz­ing technology on board, the skip­per still uses a very old-fash­ioned, and sim­ple, method, to make sure things stay on course.

Both sto­ries make great read­ing. Don’t miss them, and don’t miss your chance to win this great prize. See the en­try coupon on page 29.
