I recently heard this story about friend of a friend who won this crazy competition held by ZigZag surf mag in SA, to basically travel the world for a year and write about his surfing experience for the magazine (yes, some of you know who Im talking about!) – thought this was the most incredible opportunity I had heard of and was green with jealousy (not that The Bird can surf or anything!) – it just sounded AMA-Zing! Almost too good to be true!
A few days later, I get an email announcing another (unrelated) competition of a similar ilk from Epic World Travel, who are “looking for a young dynamic go getter” to travel the world for a year promoting their website/service via social media networks like Facebook, Twitter and You Tube… SAY WHAT?! Yip, you heard correctly – how awesome does that sound?! Starting in London and traveling the globe for 1 year – the winner will cover 6 continents, 31 countries and 57 cities.
Only really EPIC people need apply! Unfortunately this Bird does not fly solo (couldn’t do without hubby slash best friend for a whole year) so I wont be entering, but thought I would share the EPICNESS of it all with you!
