Update: This travel job has closed. We are not accepting any more applications at this moment. Congratulations to Romanna from Ukraine! (April 10, 2019)
Want to travel around the world and blog about your adventure? Now’s your chance. SkySurf.Travel is looking for a travel blogger to travel the world. The selected applicant will receive $2,000 for the adventure of a lifetime.
All you have to do is:
- Create a two-month multi-city flight itinerary at
- Write a short cover letter and record a short video
- Send us some work samples (blog, photos, videos, etc.)
- Have 2 months available for some travel work
The two-month multi-itinerary flight itinerary total must be under $2,000 at SkySurf.Travel from your home airport.
To apply, write a short cover letter (3,000 characters or less) with a video (one minute or less) as to why you should get hired for this job, along with any blogs you have written in the past or are currently working on. You’ll also need to be taking photos and recording video, so if you have any photo and/or video work, make sure to include those as well. All applicants must apply to this Upwork application.
Deadline entry for this application is in two months: March 31, 2019. An applicant will be chosen based on the best cover letter, video, and prior blog writing work. The selected applicant and SkySurf.Travel will be bound to a contract at Upwork.com, so you must have an account at Upwork. You will be paid via Upwork before every flight, so if your multi-city itinerary contains 8 flights, there will be 8 milestones; each milestone will cover your flight and accommodation.
Your departure date must be before May 24, 2019, and your trip duration must be at least two months. If you happen to build a multi-city itinerary for cheaper than $2,000 at SkySurf.Travel; great! You will still receive the $2,000. For example, if you can build a multi-city itinerary for $600, you’ll have an extra $1,400 you can use for accommodation or anything you please. Once an applicant is selected, the Skysurf.Travel team can help him or her build an even cheaper multi-city itinerary upon request. Ideally, we would like to have someone fly to 8 different cities (one city per week).
The selected applicant will then blog (800+ words each blog post) in English about his or her adventure with photos, videos (vlogs), and
Instagram stories, writing about their experiences and suggesting handy travel tips, three times a week. That’s a total of 24 blog entries. The blog entries must include local food, culture, nightlife, nature, transportation, and ways to stay on budget. Your adventure blog will be featured here at the SkySurf.Travel blog.
If you have any questions, please contact us via Upwork messenger or the contact form, which can be found in the footer of the SkySurf.Travel homepage. This job is open to anyone from around the world who is 18 years of age or older and can write in the English language.

As an example, I have created a flight itinerary to 8 European cities (a city each week) from New York City (NYC) and back, for under $600! All flights are non-stop. That means I’ll have an additional $1,400 for accommodation, transportation, and any extra travel expenses.
