Competition winner looking forward to Fiji trip

MICHELE Archay won a trip to Fiji yesterday after her one entry was plucked out of a hat of 200.

The helloworld Gladstone competition gave the lucky winner a return flight from Brisbane to Fiji, three nights' accommodation and daily breakfast for two adults.

Michele was looking forward to relaxing by the pool.

"I can just swim up to the bar and try this cocktail and that cocktail," she said.

"I'm just going to relax and enjoy the friendly, smiling happy faces."

It was the first time she had won anything major in her life.

"Only thing have ever really won is $14.55 on lotto which is just enough to go again," she said.

"This is about a $2000 holiday for free,"

Helloworld Gladstone's Carmen Ward said Michele should look forward to a good time.

"It's one of our most popular destinations for couples, weddings, families and friends," she said.

"It's only a 3½ hour flight and you're in another world."
