Want to see the world? You can follow in the footsteps of the travelers in “A Map for Saturday” on your own Big Trip. We’ll get you started with a free around-the-world plane ticket, 20 nights’ accommodations in Hostelling International hostels and other travel goodies like guidebooks and a backpack. Plus you’ll get tips on your itinerary in a one-on-one planning session with “Saturday” director Brook Silva-Braga.
It’s all sponsored by Hostelling International-USA and brought to you by Earthchild Productions, producers of the award-winning documentary film, “A Map for Saturday.”
To enter, explain in 400 words or less why you deserve this ticket to the adventure of a lifetime. Why do you want to travel? Why is now the right time for you to go on such a trip and why haven’t you done it until now?
We’re looking for someone who will make the most of this opportunity and help articulate to others (through a travelblog, podcast, photos or video) the joys and challenges of long-term travel as they experience them.
