Can you see yourself exploring far-off places? Are your dreams made of island shores, cobbled streets and ancient ruins? Does the idea of routine send chills down your spine? If this sounds like you, congratulations: you're one step closer to living your dream life.

Together with Intrepid Travel, we’re searching for two complete strangers with one thing in common: a desire to explore the world. This is your chance to escape the day-to-day for the trip of a lifetime around the globe, on us! And because this is no ordinary journey, we want people that are hungry for adventure, the element of surprise and new experiences. We'll also be sending a film crew alongside you to capture the whole adventure, so your friends, family and adoring fans back home can follow along! 

The Grand Prize

    Two people will go on an all expenses paid trip of a lifetime, worth more than $22,000 USD per person. Our jury will select two individual applicants (you’ll get to know each other in due course) to travel five different continents alongside each other. Harness the true spirit of touring, make a new friend and experience the world as you never have before.

  • From one incredible experience to the next

    Escape the ordinary and immerse yourself in culture and adventure. We’ll send you on five all-inclusive tours across five different continents.

  • Go on a life-changing journey

    You’ll get away from it all on someone else’s dime. All we need from you is a commitment to go on vacation for fifty days, and in return, we will give you life-enriching experiences and memories for years to come. And as we said, you'll be the star of your very own show! Things will never be the same again, but isn’t that why we travel?
