Back in June an interesting article pop up in my facebook news feed: about a writing internship with Global Hobos in Bali.
There was no time to ask the readers to make this decision, and it was 100% clear to me that this was not an opportunity to let pass me by. It was also an extension of the challenge from Chapter One: To make a website where people decide my life for me. I could see that this opportunity would improve my writing skills; blogging knowledge; networking with other travelers/writers; meeting some legendary travelers; and see a place I’ve never seen before.
The application deadline was June 20th
So… On June 20th (bang on time!), I sent off some writing samples, and a cover letter explaining why I would make a grouse Global Hobo Intern! (I also made sure to contact the girl in charge and plead with her to read my application before filling all the places – never leave yourself wondering “what if?”)
A few short weeks later I was accepted and will now spend a month (22nd November – 20th December) in Bali: Exploring, experiencing, learning, sharing, and producing a travel guide with 19 other writing interns. Also, apparently women are much better at this stuff than men, because I am the token rooster in the hutch! #Bachie? 😐
We will be “researching” the area and putting together a travel guide to be published as an eBook. Such a unique experience brimming with potential!
Part Of The Intermission
*This is a part of my “Australian Intermission” and I will be commencing one of the Top Ten Suggestions ASAP following this Balinese working holiday!
Voting is open until October 12 (My Birthday): So click on the photo below to sway the decision: to get content from where you want me to be in the future 🙂
