Share on: Share on Google+

Every year the the Hidden Gems series takes Peter all over the map, and 2012 was no exception. From the wilds of Australia to tribal lands in Wisconsin to the islands of Turks and Caicos, Peter traveled the globe to bring you unexpected and often overlooked destinations.

Now, our December travel contest brings you Peter’s 2012 Hidden Gems Scavenger Hunt. You’ll need to watch our Hidden Gems destination videos of 2012 (Hidden Gems: Wisconsin; Hidden Gems: Australia; Hidden Gems: Turks & Caicos) very closely to see if you can spot the answers to our secret Scavenger Hunt clues.

This week’s challenge:

Peter had his share of animal encounters this year. What furry friends did Peter make this year in his travels through Wisconsin, Australia and Turks & Caicos? Please name the animal, the location and the country of all of Peter’s Hidden Gems Wildlife Adventures.

Leave your answer and email in the comments below. As always, the person who gives us the most complete answer first wins. Our Scavenger Hunt Winner takes home signed DVDs of the Hidden Gems series and some of Peter’s favorite travel gear, so that you can have your very own off-the-beaten path adventures in 2013.

And if you’re looking to find out Peter’s Best Places for Everything, answer this extra credit question to win a signed copy of his latest book.

Peter will find any excuse to get on a boat. In Hidden Gems: Wales, what unusual waterway did Peter go boating on in Wales?
