Win Travel’s Biggest, Baddest Bucket List with My DestinationGlobal competition to win a six-month all expenses paid trip blogging around the world – plus $50,000 cash
Los Angeles, CA – January 28, 2013 - My Destination, a global travel resource powered by a community of local experts, unleashed travel’s Biggest, Baddest, Bucket List offering one lucky person the prize of a lifetime: a six-month, all inclusive blogging trip around the world to a minimum of 25 international destinations and a $50,000 (USD) cash prize upon their return. The competition is in partnership with a series of international associates including Hotels.com, Travelex and Viator, opening on 28th January and closing on 31st March 2013. Ben Southall, winner of Tourism Queensland’s ‘Best Job In The World’ will preside over the entrants as guest judge.
The blogging trip of a lifetime: The winners will spend six months traveling the world blogging, meeting the locals and taking part in challenges in each location – all expenses paid. The challenges will be wide and varied, covering everything from visiting a landmark to tasting a local delicacy and staying with a family to an adrenaline pumping activity. The winner gets to create their own six-month itinerary and will blog for My Destination throughout the trip, keeping the people back home and around the world up to date on their adventures.
The prize money: Upon completion of all the challenges and the blogging tasks assigned throughout the six-month trip, a $50,000 prize will be awarded to the winner to spend on anything they want – paying off that student loan, starting a business or buying a home.
Ben commented, “Winning ‘Best Job In The World’ was truly a life changing experience for me and I can’t wait to help pick out a winner for the Biggest, Baddest, Bucket List and help give someone else an opportunity that could very well be life changing for them. I haven’t looked back since winning in 2009 and I’m delighted to see an amazing travel blogging opportunity that really looks to get under the skin of so many destinations around the world.”
