Fairmont GoPro Video Contest: Kauai Adventure

Last year my wife suggested we enter a video contest that Fairmont Hotels was running for a chance to win a trip to any destination in North America OR (more importantly) their destinations in the Caribbean. We chose Barbados thinking we may not win.

As part of our initial submission we had to create a video that showed a place we had visited and all the “off the beaten path” experiences we had. Having visited Kauai and Hawaii recently we knew it was the perfect subject matter. Here’s our short entry video edited very quickly.

Surprisingly we made it through the first round and we won our trip to Barbados! The kicker was we had to film our experience using the provided GoPro camera. I’ll post the follow-up video shortly.
