A while back we ran a competition that offered readers the chance to win a backpack filled with travel goodies, valued at just over £500. To enter, we asked you to tell us about the best view you have ever seen.
Over the competition period we received over 500 entries, with some incredible stories emerging that sent people around the office wolf-howling crazy to get on the road. So, we'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who entered - it was fantastic reading all of your stories. And while it would have been amazing to have given the prize away to everyone, there could only be one.
We were so impressed by the volume and quality of the entries, this month we decided to post a Top 10 Reader Views, as posted by the entrants. To view the full list of comments, check out our blog, which has the full list of Facebook comments.
