If you’ve ever caught yourself scrolling through travel blogger’s photos with envy, but didn’t have the follower count to live the lifestyle yourself, one travel company is offering you the opportunity of a lifetime.

Busabout is looking for four people to take abroad on a three month tour of Europe – an all-expenses paid trip worth $9,000.

The lucky winners will be in charge of Snapchatting, vlogging, blogging and Instagramming their way between countries – using their phone to capture memories they can later upload to social media.

As part of the trip the travellers will embark on a private hop-on-hop-off tour from early June until September this year; with accommodation, spending money and a bonus fee at the end of the trip.

The social media crew will tick off Lake Bled, Krakow and San Sebastián on the journey and venture off-the-beaten track to hidden gems like the hikers’ paradise of Grünau in Austria, and adrenaline junkie haven of Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland. 

To finish the trip winners will spend a week cruising the picturesque ocean off the coast of Croatia.

For a spot on the tour entrants just need to select a preferred social platform (Instagram, Snapchat/Instagram Stories, YouTube or Blogspot) and record a 60 second video showcasing why they’re the only person for the position. 

Someone who knows exactly what the experience entails is Australian Leanne Melody, who won a spot on the incredible trip last year.

The 23-year-old self-described ‘life enthusiast’ still posts lavish photos to her Instagram account, showcasing the Greek Islands, Bali and Italy’s rolling hills – opportunities that presented themselves after her overseas trip finished.

While it may seem like a no-brainer, depending on where you’re headed on any overseas journey, washing facilities may be few and far between. 

She also recommends packing a bar of laundry soap, which can double as hand soap, and a skipping rope which can be used for some on-the-go fitness or as a clothesline.

Staying stylish while being practical also calls for a little creative thinking, she told Escape

‘I transformed a small gold purse from H&M, tightened the strap, thread it through my body every day and wore it around my waist. I received so many compliments on it and it was the best hack ever!’ she said. 

And if you’re looking to get that all-important snap for Instagram she recommends getting to a monument early – that way, it’s relatively tourist-free and you can ‘appreciate the moment.’

To submit your application to Busabout, which is due by mid-April, you can do so on their website.
