We want independent, adventurous travellers who have a keen desire to hone their travel writing skills. They bring the hunger for adventure, World Nomads will keep them travelling safely and submitting some amazing content, all in the comfort of our Ambassador van
(PRWEB) December 20, 2006
World Nomads is looking for a minimum of 16 'Adventure Ambassadors' to share in a huge, two-year Aussie road trip. Travellers Auto Barn will provide the Ambassador van (which bears little resemblance to its Indian namesake) and if they make the grade and get selected as an Ambassador, they can drive off into the countryside, exploring the great Aussie continent at will, for up to six weeks.
The selection process will be based on applicants' skills, availability, eagerness - and a monumental appetite for adventure. Chosen Ambassadors will need to be a bit tech savvy and keen to tell the world what they get up to.
For here's the catch: in return for the trip of your dreams, World Nomads will ask Ambassadors to share it along the way through posting regular blogs, podcasts and vidcasts on the World Nomads website.
World Nomads will provide a laptop and iPod and all the back-up needed to deliver, with gizmos, gadgets and guidance from a range of sponsors. Travellers Auto Barn will provide the van; Nokia will provide the latest N93 phone with high resolution photo and video capabilities; Global Gossip will provide internet access for uploading travel stories to the World Nomads website and Lonely Planet will provide enough destination information to ensure you don't get too lost.
Adecco is also on board providing access to great jobs should an Ambassador be in need of a job at the end of their jaunt, and Intrepid Travel will be offering treks to some lucky bloggers.
Successful World Nomads Ambassadors must be prepared to travel to the designated pick-up point to take over the Ambassador van from the previous Nomads and cover the running costs of the van (fuel, oil etc) and living expenses (food, alcohol etc). There are terms and conditions similar to a standard car rental agreement - including being over 21 years of age and having a valid driver's license and a credit card.
Chris Noble, Global Marketing Manager for World Nomads, sees this program as a way to engage travel writers around the world, " We want independent, adventurous travellers who have a keen desire to hone their travel writing skills. They bring the hunger for adventure, World Nomads will keep them travelling safely and submitting some amazing content, all in the comfort of our Ambassador van ". All aspiring travel writers can apply through the World Nomads website.
