You may have heard about The Best Job in the World that’s being advertised for Australia.  It’s basically living above the Great Barrier Reef for six months and making AUD$150,000 (roughly $98,000 USD).  The responsibilities?  Live it up and document it!

While the Aussies nabbed the title of Best Job in the World, I think the STA World Traveler Internship falls into the same category.  Basically two lucky people will be flown around the world this summer and will document all the adventures and excitement from their travels.  While it’s not about making tons of moulah, it’s an amazing opportunity to travel around the world FOR FREE.  The itinerary includes everything from volunteering at a school in Fiji to going face-to-face with the Big 5 in Eastern Africa to chilling out in Berlin.

I couldn’t help myself and applied.  Check it out, let me know what you think.  And if you think you’d be a perfect fit, go ahead and apply too! Here’s all the applicant videos so far.  Hope you enjoy watching mine!

Happy Chinese New Year and thanks for your support!

    Helen, I just have to tell you that the ONLY reason I didn’t apply for this internship was because I thought it was students-only still!! I can’t believe they opened it up, that’s so awesome! Good luck!
