Here is a competition I couldn’t ignore. A $10,000 pot from Scottevest for one lucky person to take the trip of their lifetime and document as they go. I never enter competitions and could easily talk my way out of winning this one by saying I feel I’ve been to most of the countries I’ve ever wanted to visit. I spent 10 years doing just that.
That said. I love adventure.
And I also love travel. Be it by train, by bike, by foot or by boat. It’s the people I meet along the way. The people and their stories.
So what would I do with $10,000. Well I wouldn’t blow it all on one trip. I’d pick out a few of the worlds festivals I’ve always wanted to go to and visit them. I may have been to most of the places I ever dreamed of.. but i’ve not travelled to a fraction of the amazing events and festivals that go on around the world.
I’d pick a selection.. music, art, food, literature, there are so many out there. I’d probably ask for recommendations form my online places and then report my findings back using audio, video, geo and photos to share the stories I find.
Obviously.. without a sack of cash sat on my desk this is just a pipe dream. Still. It’s nice to dream.
What kind of trip(s) would you do with $10,000 to spend?
