If your name is Sydney, call your mom and dad, and thank them ASAP, because their birth-certificate decision could win you an epic, totally-free trip to Australia. (And you thought your shot at scoring a dreamy getaway to Oz passed when you lost the professional avo-taster contest.)

To celebrate the January 18, 2018 launch of nonstop flights from Houston to Sydney, United Airlines is sending five lucky “Sydneys” and a plus one on a free round-trip experience.

To celebrate the January 18, 2018 launch of nonstop flights from Houston, Texas to Sydney, Australia, United Airlines is sending five lucky “Sydneys” (first and last name both work) and a plus one on a free round-trip experience. And if you’re bummed because your name is spelled differently, don’t worry: 19 other spellings are also accepted in the contest. Just fill out the entry form and cross your fingers.

According to Elite Daily, contest winners will stay at the Westin Sydney for five nights, take a Sydney Harbor Sightseeing Cruise, see the famous Sydney Opera House, and take a day tour to the Blue Mountains. They’ll also get a $500 gift card to cross off other items on their Aussie bucket list (NBD).

Even if you’re not a “Sydney” (or the lucky guest of one), it might be worth adding the wellness-star-laden nation of Australia to your healthy travel bucket list for 2018. Just make sure to pick up some Harry Potter–themed activewear during your visit!
