Earlier this week we ran a contest to give one lucky winner a complimentary ticket to the Frequent Traveler University event in Washington, DC from April 27 through April 28.
To enter, we asked readers to share the location when they were closest to their antipodal point on the earth.
- Leave a comment in this post with the location closest to your antipodal point on the earth’s surface
The antipodal point of any location on earth is the diametrically opposite point on the Earth’s surface, otherwise the exact opposite side of the earth. As a kid, the running playground joke was to ask a friend if they planned to dig to China. Which was never realistic, but it is now realistic to hop on a plane and fly to or “near” your antipodal point thanks to points and miles.
Congratulations To The Winner
Congratulations to Bradley B., who has won what is arguable one of the last available tickets to the sold out FTU event in Washington, DC later this month.
- Bradley B. said “I’m in Philadelphia. The closest approach I’ve made to my anitpodal point is Pattaya, Thailand.”
We’ll send an email to the winner who will have 24 hours to claim the prize, then we’ll select a runner up to award the prize until it is claimed.
Thanks for participating in the Points, Miles & Martinis antipodal challenge.
