We are looking for someone to write simple travel blogs for backpackers and budget travellers.
These posts should be between 50 and 200 words and will revolve around travel tips, interesting locations and fun things to do for backpackers and budget travellers.
This is an ongoing position as we are looking for 2 posts per day. This great position is for someone travelling, someone who has travelled previously or someone who is willing to put in the research.
The writers must have competent English writing skills and understand the ethos of a budget traveller.
Here are two sample posts so you can get the idea of what we are looking for:
1. #Amed on the far east coast #Bali, #Indonesia - If the hustle and bustle of Kuta doesn't float your boat and you are looking for a more authentic relaxed Bali then Amed might be the place for you. For what it lacks in white sand beaches (beaches here are black volcanic sand) it makes up for in awesome snorkelling right off the beach and loads of good cheap accommodation spread out amongst the hills with some of the best views you can get. Amed is often referred to as "what Kuta was like in the 70's" yet she is growing fast so get there sooner rather than later.
HINT* For sunset, join the Reggae Bar boys on the headland overlooking the volcano (Gunung Agung). Rp25000 (less than $2.50) bintangs and some acoustic reggae tunes are guaranteed to please the senses as you watch the sun set over the vast volcano to the left and majestic ocean to the right
2. Can't afford to stay in a lavish resort? Want to swim in some beautiful pools or use other top class facilities? Here's a *Sneaky Tip* that might get you in for FREE and it's going to sound super simple!
Just smile and walk in! If you look like you are meant to be there then nobody will question otherwise. It's the old "fake it until you make it" mentality. If for whatever reason you are stopped and questioned, politely say that you are meeting your friends by the pool for some drinks and ask for their assistance. Your money is as good as any other guests and if they think you will buy some drinks you are usually fine.
Once you are in you will blend in with all the other guests (providing you don’t have dreadlocks and smell like mouldy cheese) and are free to roam around the resort using as many facilities as possible. This is tried and tested in resorts all over the world and we cannot think of one instance where we were not let in.
Pictures are not require just the writing.
