One London-based bar chain is willing to pay for someone to travel the world and drink gin.
And they will also get to take a friend with them.

The successful candidate, and their travelling companion, will follow in the adventurous footsteps of Phileas J. Fogg.
On a trip inspired by Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days, the “explorers” will travel across the globe from Bombay to Hong Kong, Paris to New York, Japan to San Francisco.

Applicants also need to be prominent on social media, be a good writer, and able to take well-lit photographs. They must also be at least 21 years old.
