i have been day dreaming of a warm sunny beach all week long.  january, you are killing me!  but good news! we have teamed up with our sponsor, HotelTonight, to giveaway TWO $200 credits this week so two lucky winners can start planning that next dream trip!

we first found and shared HotelTonight on Love Taza last august for our 6 year blogging anniversary. we thought the concept of having an app that finds awesome last minute deals on hotels all over the world was kind of genius, especially since we like keeping our itinerary really flexible and open when we travel with the littles.  we actually ended up using the HotelTonight app while traveling abroad in november. we had hoped to stay near a secluded castle or in the country for a night between our time in amsterdam and paris but had no luck finding anything after all our research.

josh was up for almost our entire last night in amsterdam still looking for something. after checking out of the hotel in amsterdam and waiting for the taxi to take us to the train and still kind of in limbo as what we were going to do next, we decided to just head straight to paris a day early. we hadn’t had any contact with HotelTonight since our giveaway in august and it wasn’t on the forefront of my mind to use the app. i am so glad josh had an “aha!” moment and whipped out his phone while we still had wifi in the hotel lobby.  he was able to find and book a hotel in paris for our flex night in a couple minutes! we ended up staying at the Rochester Champs Elysées because it had an awesome deal and because we saw on the app’s map that it was in a part of paris that we didn’t really have on our itinerary for the trip (arc du triumphe area), which we really enjoyed exploring our first night.

anyway, we are excited to partner with them again for this giveaway! check our their app by downloading it for free. to enter the giveaway, simply visit HotelTonight and leave a comment below telling us where your dream vacation would be. the winners will be drawn at random and contacted directly next week.

HotelTonight is also offering $25 off your very first booking with the code TAZA25 (for first-time bookings only.)

good luck!
