I’ve been dreaming about it all day long. Imagine spending six month visiting six continents with all expenses paid; add in the $50,000 cash prize money at the end of the trip and you have one hell of a contest.
This is what’s included:
The winner, hereafter referred to as me/I/Lesley, will leave on my travels in June, 2013 and return by the end of December, 2013. The exact duration is subject to flight availability (solar alignment, lunar landings and direction of geese migration, etc.) at the time of booking.
Where do I really want to go? This prize allows me to pick where I want to visit! Yes, I’ll work with the My Destination team to build my chosen itinerary, taking in the sights that appeal to me the most. In order to get the true ’round the world’ flavour the final itinerary should include a minimum of 25 locations from the My Destination network and at least 2 destinations from each continent.
The whole trip is paid for, and up to the sum of $50,000USD. This covers travel expenses (flights, trains, boats, tuk-tuks), accommodation, activities along the way and all my experiences including… $10,000USD spending money (now that’s a lot of souvenirs!)
Local Challenges and Activities
We want you to experience the BEST activities whilst you are away… from helicopter rides, wildlife spotting or bungee jumping to learning how to cook the perfect Thai curry. You’ll be required to do at least one local experience in each destination and document it for My Destination readers. Of course the challenges depend on season and availability (and whether you’re up for them) but once we have your dream itinerary, planning will commence!
$50,000 Cash Prize
When you return home, there will be a $50,000USD cash prize waiting for you! You could spend it on going away for another year, a new car, paying off that student loan, starting a business or buying a home… the choice is yours! You’ll have worked hard for us while you’re away (producing blog posts and video posts) so we think you deserve it!
I will receive a camera, phone and any other technical wizardry I’ll need to produce my posts on the road. After the trip they’ll be mine to keep.

If you could travel around the world, what would be your top five country choices?
I’d like to visit Brazil, India, Australia, South Africa, and Thailand as my top five… I think. It’s so hard to choose. (This is based on countries I haven’t visited.)
