Last month we told you about the Golden Experience Giveaway hosted by Sodha Travel, an award-winning travel agency specializes in travel to India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bhutan. With over 3,600 entries, this Indian vacation giveaway was a great success!

Winner of the Trip for Two to India

The winner of a private tour for two of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur is Cheryl Bemiss of Eugene, Oregon. When Sodha Travel called Cheryl to let her know she was the winner, Cheryl cried tears of joy and said traveling to India will be a dream come true for her.

The Golden Experience Giveaway winner can’t wait to experience the local culture and the sights, sounds, smells, and food. She said, “I’m a vegetarian whose favorite animal is a cow, so I figure that I’ll fit right in. I’ve watched so many movies about India, but I didn’t think I’d ever get to see this beautiful country in person.”
