The retire-overseas experts at InternationalLiving.com are looking for somebody interested in living abroad to spend a month or more in one of their top-rated retirement havens and report on the experience. The prize includes a round-trip flight plus $5,000 in spending money.
“We ask that the winner spend a minimum of a month abroad…but a longer stay is fine. The winner can choose to explore just one country…or to travel to more than one. The $5,000 is the winner’s to spend as he or she likes,” says Jennifer Stevens, InternationalLiving.com’s Executive Editor.
The ideal candidate is of or near retirement age, has an interest in spending time abroad, and some writing experience (photography is a plus). He or she will be invited to choose one or more destinations to explore from among International Living’s Top 10 retirement havens—Ecuador, Panama, Mexico, Malaysia, Costa Rica, Spain, Malta, Colombia, Portugal and Thailand.
“We are looking for a candidate willing to document his or her travel experiences overseas and share details about things like how much life costs, what he or she does to stay busy, impressions of the destination (or destinations) discovered, likes, frustrations, pleasant surprises, and more,” Stevens says.
To enter, candidates must send in a headline and a 150-word lead describing a favorite travel experience. The deadline for entry is approaching. Submissions must be in by midnight on Monday, October 19, 2015.
Full competition details including instructions on how to enter, and the terms and conditions can be seen here.
