Vacationer Wanted - Will Pay to Travel

Here's a chance to travel with this once-in-a-lifetime contest.

How would you like to travel, for free, all around the world, no strings attached, for a whole year? I saw this before I left for Vancouver and am just getting caught up on the details now.

Transat, a Montreal based company, is looking for two people - one English and one French - to travel to various destinations in Central America, the Caribbean and Europe - for free.

That's right. Every month, you get to go on vacation, somewhere without snow or ice pellets or dishes or laundry, for 2 whole weeks and then you send in a report while you rub cream on your sunburn and rinse out your bathing suit.

And the kicker? They PAY you to do this. As in $40,000 a year. And all other travel expenses are paid for.

All you have to do to apply is send in a two minute video explaining why they should pick you. Fifty candidates will be chosen, and then voting takes place, online, with members of the public.

Cool, no? Worth checking out?

For more info and all the details, look here.

I know.

I wonder if my family would miss me if I disappeared for a year? Actually, it's only for six months. And those six months would be broken up by visits home every month.

I think it's doable.

I want it.

Hello there!

Did you end up doing an audition video? I'd never done anything like this before and went for it.

If you did apply, good luck otherwise please keep your fingers crossed for me!
