Ever wondered what life would be like as a world travel reporter touring the world and documenting the experience? Brothers Alex and Marko Ayling, the Vagabrothers, will find out after having won the competition Biggest, Baddest Bucket List launched by My Destination. By winning the chance to become world travel reporters, Alex and Marko will journey on an all-expenses paid, 6 month round the world trip based on their own choosing, serve as ambassadors and correspondents for My Destination, produce weekly travel videos on YouTube, and will publish information and stories about each destination visited.
Over the course of the 9 week entry period beginning January 28th, 2013, My Destination received 1,251 submissions from over 640 destinations and over 110 countries around the world. To enter the contest, each participant had to submit a blog post, photographs, and an original 3 minute video sharing their local insights and tips for their destination. Check out their video entry below:
The Ayling brothers were announced the winners after joining other top 10 finalists during a week long adventure in the UK where they took on assigned challenges allowing them to showcase their creativity, energy, initiative, team spirit, and adaptability.
Alex and Marko are “wildly energetic and ambitious”, says My Destination. The material they create “is guaranteed to excite, inspire, and entertain.” Throughout the competition, the brother duo displayed their passion and drive that helped them win and their skills and personality necessary to be traveling brand ambassadors. Mark said, “The best part about this amazing contest from My Destination is it has allowed us to dream, to expand the normal realm of possibility into something so much bigger.”
Following their win, Alex and Marko will work with My Destination to create an itinerary for their 6-month, around-the-world adventure which will begin in July. Follow their journey on My Destination, YouTube, and MSN Travel.
