Two lucky friends and passionate travelers will be given the opportunity of a lifetime this summer through Iceland’s budget airline WOW air. The airline is hosting a competition to find a ‘fun pair of individuals who are able to think big’ and be paid to move to Iceland and travel the world.
It almost sounds too good to be true, but the offer includes an apartment in downtown Reykjavik, Iceland’s cultural capital, which offers plenty to see and do for everyone, whether you’re interested in walking around natural landscapes, viewing local art, eating the renowned seafood or absorbing the history of the city.
The competition winners will be asked to keep up a blog and a vlog about their experiences, all while getting paid a salary of about $3,841 (£2,885) a month, including transportation and tours around Iceland as well as travel and living expenses, which will be paid by the airline. The idea is that the pair will keep Reykjavik as their base as they travel to worldwide destinations served by WOW air. This is the latest competitive strategy used by the airline to make worldwide travel on a budget available to more people. The airline also recently announced new service to New Dehli, India, starting in December.
The blogging and vlogging are meant to document the winners’ journey through budget-friendly travel tips and guides for each destination, which will be posted to a section on the WOW Air travel website called Travel Guide. This is obviously a great opportunity to get your name out into the world if you want to be a travel writer as well as go to cities you have always wanted to visit.
