#GlobalReadyChallenge: Chalk Art Photo Opps


This weekend, I enjoyed a lovely little jaunt to Europe and Australia, seeing the sites by moped and catching some waves. Bright and early this morning, Poppy and I were off again, this time for a quick escape down to South America! 

3D Chalk Art installations of international hot spots are popping up all over town, inviting Austinites to take a free selfie tour of the world.

This week, you can visit four continents without ever leaving Austin. Just grab your camera and go!  First up, head to University Co-op, where you can snap a shot of yourself visiting Peru’s Machu Picchu by llama, or speeding past Rome’s Colosseum by moped, through Friday. 

If you take a selfie at any of the locations below and enter it in the #GlobalReadyChallenge, you could win the trip of a lifetime, to one of 20 countries!
