Photo of the Day: Children in Córdoba, Spain

Spanish-childrenNearly two months in and Dream Trip 2009 is going strong, with more than 10,000 entries so far. For inspiration for your own entry, and a chance to win a $25,000 vacation to wherever you choose, read our take on a recent eye-catching submission:

Monday starts the last week of class for New York City public school students--and for the last month Condé Nast Traveler editors and other New Yorkers have been making their commutes in a subway system full of chattering, singing, and yelling kids on field trips. (Trust us: You don't want to get on a subway car with one of these groups if you've left your iPod at home.)

Somehow, a line of school-age children looks more appealing (and infinitely quieter) from Dream Trip entrant EHoofprint's vantage point on an upper floor of a courtyard in Córdoba, Spain.

"I woke up in my hotel and headed out for the day without an agenda," EHoofprint writes in the Dream Trip entry Children's Day in Córdoba, Spain. "I came across this courtyard filled with children. They danced, sang, and played all sorts of games. I watched the festivities for a while. The thing that sticks with me the most is that laughter is truly universal. You don't have to speak the language to know that."

Share your travel photos and memories in our 2009 Dream Trip Contest. You could be just a few clicks away from a $25,000 trip to anywhere you choose.
