Biggest, Baddest, Bucket List
Ever wanted to climb the Eiffel Tower in Paris, bungee jump in Queenstown, discover the amazing wildlife of the Galapagos Islands or visit the Mayan ruins of Cancun, Mexico?! Well, a bucket list is just that - a list of amazing experiences!! However, because we think our bucket list is so amazing we're calling it 'The Biggest Baddest Bucket List'! Not only do you get to choose where you want to go (making the bucket list truly personal) but the lucky winner gets to tick everything off at once during an incredible 6 month round the world journey. No need to wait a lifetime to complete this ultimate bucket list - it's all ready and waiting to be completed NOW! Oh, and it's all expenses paid. An ultimate bucket list if ever we saw one...
You'll leave on your 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.
Choice of Destinations
Where do you really want to go?! Put your thinking cap on because this prize allows you to pick where you want to visit! Yes, the winner will work together with the My Destination team to build their chosen itinerary, taking in the sights that appeal to them 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.
For inspiration check out the My Destination website and Travel Blog and keep your eyes peeled for updates on our Twitter and Facebook pages. We're certainly not shy when it comes to food for thought!!!
All Expenses Paid
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 your 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!
Gadgets, Gizmos and Other Equipment
The winner will receive a camera, phone and any other technical wizardry you'll need to produce your posts on the road. After the trip they'll be yours to keep. Lucky so-and-so.
Six Months. Six Continents. Your choice of destinations
Where to go? With so much of our world to see and do we don't blame you if you're overwhelmed by choice. So here is a sample bucket list with possible destinations to get you dreaming. But of course, the real fun and adventure starts with your very own bucket list!
