This Dream Job Will Pay for You to Travel Europe Free of Charge
Travel to Europe may be super cheap RN (and part of that might have to do with the fact that many folks are scared they might not be able to come back home, TBH), but nothing beats free, especially when paired with the words, “Dream Job,” areweright?
Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better than getting paid to eat bacon (for the meat-eaters among us, at least!), tweeting about the Royals, or drinking beer while traveling, Busabout (a European travel company with a “hop-on, hop-off” railway approach) has come up with two separate positions that would allow you to see the European sights free of charge.
The company is calling for both a brand ambassador and a video producer who will work as a team to produce a travel vlog of their adventures, in addition to documenting them via social media. Busabout will pay for the trip (and yes, flights are included), which will span from the beaches of Seine to the castles of Czech Republic. The company will also be giving the lucky chosen two a daily food stipend and an undisclosed fee upon project completion.
Sounds pretty sweet, right? Here’s what you’ll need to do. First and foremost, the trip will take place between the months of April-September (so if you’re a bridesmaid in your bestie’s summer wedding, this is likely a no-go for you). Secondly, you must be over 18 and in possession of (or able to get) a valid passport.
From there, the qualifications vary, depending on which role you’re eyeing. The brand ambassador will be on-camera, so he or she will need to be able to tell a mean story, and be a natural in front of the cam. The video producer will need to prove they know their way around the camera, in addition to being a creative genius, more or less.
Sound like you? Well, what are you waiting for? Applications are being accepted from now through March 5, so here’s your shot: Find out more about whether you qualify here.
Good luck, all!
Will you be applying for one of these spots? Let us know over @BritandCo.
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
