MOST people spend months carefully planning their dream holiday, but what if you had the chance to take a trip, and had no idea where you were going?
That was the reality for 33 holidaymakers in Washington, DC, last week, who boarded a bus in the US capital bound for a mystery location.
The trip, which took the spontaneous strangers three hours out of the city and into West Virginia, was the result of a tourism campaign initiated by the West Virginia Tourism Office, which invited people to apply for a “fall weekend getaway to a mystery location”.
The lucky winners were sent instructions to show up at the departure location at 7am with layered clothing, hiking boots and a “sense of adventure”.
The two-day trip was enough to convert most travellers, with one claiming “West Virginia definitely delivered.”
A mystery well solved.
