PPtraintravel Passion Passport Instragram Challenge with Amtrak

This week we’re teaming up with Amtrak! The theme for our Instagram photo challenge for the week of August 18th: #pptraintravel!

Think of creative and unique ways to share your favorite travel memories that involved journey by train in photo or video: catch the nostalgia of cross-country train travel, showcase a quiet moment in a train car, capture a passing train, frame the outside scenery from the window, or share stories about memorable travel companions or new friends from your journeys!

Don’t forget to tell us about your entry and what makes it special or memorable (note that the winner always has a write-up for their photo). 

Three winners will receive $200 vouchers for Amtrak train travel and nine honorable mentions will receive $50 vouchers for Amtrak. 



1) Post a photo or video that fits this week’s theme. Tag @passionpassport and #PPtraintravel in your first caption so that we don’t miss your entry. Note that you cannot simply ‘tag’ an older photo or video — you must post or re-post your entry during the challenge period.

2) Submit as many entries as you like between Monday, August 18th and Sunday, August 24th at 11:59pm PST.

3) Include a short blurb about what was significant about your photo or video (check out the previous challenge winner here).

4) Winners and honorable mentions will be announced on Monday, August 25th here on PassionPassport.com.
