This post and GoPro Hero 3 giveaway is brought to you by eHarmony
Our tagline here on our blog and in life is, “It’s all about the memories”
It’s usually the thing that pushes us from complacency to stretching ourselves a little to experience moments and create memories that will last a life-time.
Craig and I are very lucky to have travelled many years together. Three days after we were married we set off for a 5 year honeymoon.
We knew it was make or break it.
Lucky we made it and our bond is strong. The memories of the times we shared working together to live our dreams and solve problems is what held us together through some really tough times.
I don’t think we could ever separate because what would we do with all our photos? Who’d keep them? Or worse, would we have to throw them out??
Divorce is just not an option.
Travellers today have incredible options for capturing moments. Phone camera technology has taken off, and instagram is making recording travel memories even more interesting.
Digital SLR’s functions help create depth to your travel story, and even basic point and shoot can do pretty amazing things.
We record a lot more video now and have a lot of fun doing it with our children. But, we are limited by our hands and motion. The Go Pro Hero 3 gives you the freedom to capture amazing video and photo hands free. Strap it on your head and go enjoy yourself while the camera records away.
We used a friend’s recently while videoing in the surf at Palm Beach, it was such a cool experience, to splash around filming each other like we were on a first date again!
The release of the newest GoPro Hero 3 version recently has had everyone buzzing.
While we have not yet secured one for ourself, we have for a lucky reader!!
Thanks to eHarmony, we have one GoPro Hero 3 to give away and they’re throwing in a three month membership to eHarmony (transferable if you’re already attached – it’s the holidays, you can always give it to someone deserving!)
eHarmony are helping people around the world to connect and form lasting relationships. Craig and I connected so well because of our common love of travel and having similar interests and passions. eHarmony actually delves a little deeper than similar interests which sounds great I think. They match you based on key areas of compatibility, things like personality, sense of humour, intellect and ambition.
Review your matches for free on eHarmony by filling out a relationship questionnaire designed to find matches which are truly compatible with you.
Cool! We can give a GoPro camera away to someone AND we might also play a small part in helping fun and loving relationships start.
I think I like wearing this hat!
